This hotel is part of the paradise that is Arenal national park. The natural hot springs around the hotel make this place unique and worth every penny (not the cheapest hotel). Food and service is exceptional. We only last minute booked for one night as we were travelling but wished we had known about it as would have stayed longer.... More

We came here on a day trip while we were visiting the Arenal region from our hotel in Guanacaste and this was our favourite stop of the day! The pools were all relaxing and the swim up bar was a great plus! We had dinner in the restaurant before we left and it was also very delicious! The cocktails were... More

After hours of bumpy off road driving, our family loved soaking in the hot springs. The natural hot springs are surrounded by palm trees and flowers and some are in the secluded area where our family was able to be by ourselves, enjoying complete tranquility. The unobstructed view of Arenal Volcano was an added bonus. I don't think you can... More

This is not a hotel review, it is a review of the activities at the hotel you can buy a day pass for. We drove in a rental car from our hotel just for the day for Club Rio, their activities area at the Springs resort. There is plenty of parking just below the lobby area. A big green bus... More

This resort is the epitome of luxury! We stayed here 3 nights with our 4 boys and they loved the hot springs, the waterslide and all the nature surrounding us. The hot springs that are away from the main hotel area are truly spectacular as you are in the middle of the rain forest. Our room also had a spectacular... More

Wow! We had such an amazing time at The Springs Resort. The staff was amazing - Hairol was a fabulous host and made sure our trip was spectacular. The food was first class. The big cat feeding was the highlight of our trip where we got up close to toucans, sloths, fed rescued monkeys and big cats. We will definitely... More

It was great except for there were no adult pools. With a resort this big with many pools there were no spots for us adults. Many kids in all pools. The resort were full of kids running around. We wish we knew it was a family resort. It was sold to us as a honeymoon destination. Not at all.

We spent 6 nights at this resort in November. The room was perfect- the architecture, view, room service with little towel animals every night- we were so lucky to be there for the supermoon and seeing the volcano lit up with the moonlight was amazing. Stay on the 2nd floor for the best view. Hotel room on 2nd floor has... More
