The layout of the hotel is relaxing, spacious and beautiful - the volcano is just in front of your front porch every time you step out. The hot spring pools are welcome amenities to relax in - rain or shine. The service is great and so is food (had both breakfast and dinner at the restaurant). The room came with... More

Overall, we loved this hotel! The rooms are each half of a "duplex", and there are around 50 of these little buildings lined along streets on the property (it felt like a mini suburb). The bathroom showers are open to the elements which was very cool when it rained. Water pressure wasn't so good. We needed an extra bed in... More

We loved our stay here. The staff bends over backwards to ensure you're very well taken care of. The pools are great, the rooms comfy and the views great. It's also very convenient to many tourist sites in the area. Stocked fridge, fruit in your room. Free WiFi in room. When you settle your bills, note that the restaurant/bar automatically... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and it was a wonderful, peaceful, gorgeous resort. Always greeted with friendly smiles from the entire staff throughout our stay. We were only able to see the beautiful view of the volcano the first night and day because it rained the rest of the time. Still it was very enjoyable and memorable. I would... More

Spent 3 nights here at the commencement of a month long trip to Costa Rica. Excellent facilities and amazing hot springs. The pool bar and sushi was first class. Breakfast was the best selection you could wish for and the staff most attentive. Bungalows well appointed and the availability of golf type buggies was a boon for those less able.... More

I couldn't believe this place. It was much fancier that I am used to. I kept waiting for the management to wise up and politely show me the door... but once I got comfortable with the fact that I was a registered guest I started to relax and really enjoy this place. All of the rooms, the restaurant, and the... More

Arenal Springs resort is very beautiful outside. The hot springs/ pools are very nice and the landscape beautiful. The swim up bar at the pool is convenient and comfortable . The food at the pool was good. The bartenders were not that attentive . You had to flag someone down to get a drink a lot of times . They... More

Arenal Springs Resort was pure joy! The room and grounds were beautiful, and the food delicious. The sushi at the swim up bar was so good we had it twice. I have to mention Daniel at the front desk. I had left my backpack at our previous hotel, and Daniel would not give up until it was recovered. His kind... More

Absolutely beautiful! The hot springs was phenomenal. The massage I got was perfect! The food was amazing! The service was perfect. If we come back to Costa Rica I will absolutely stay here and would recommend anyone to stay here! All of the staff speak English very well, too.

First, we drove here in the dark from the San Jose airport because it took forever for us to get from the rental office to the road and traffic was terrible for quite a ways. Windy one lane roads--be in for a real job if you rent and drive yourself. It's not just a leisurely drive by any stretch of... More
