Myself and 5 others traveled to Costa Rica and spent our first four days at Arenal Springs. The resort was absolutely beautiful. Well maintained with lovely plant life and lots of wildlife to enjoy. The hot springs and pool were lovely and we really enjoyed the hot springs while we were there after a day full of activities. The rooms...

The resort was beautiful with very nice views of the Arenal Volcano. The hot springs were very relaxing. The food served in the restaurants as well as the breakfast buffet was really good though a bit on the pricey side. The staff was helpful and the location of the resort was close to most of the outdoor activities.

Hotel is in an excellent location and has fantastic views of the Arenal Volcano. All rooms overlook the volcano and it is amazing to wake up to those views everyday. We had a junior suite and this room was spacious and was extremely clean and modern. The bed was a king site and was very comfortable. The bathroom was excellent...

Beautiful setting at the foot of Arenal Volcano, although the rain forest lived up to its name so we never saw the volcano. Rooms are clean mini-villas. Grounds are immaculate. Thermal Pools. Love it.

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon, we called it the "compound" -- in a positive way, because it is somewhat of a utopia. From the hot springs to the spacious and comfortable detached bedroom units (with their own private parking space!), everything was great. They have everything you could possibly ask for in a resort without the...

We stayed here for one night on our way back to San Jose from Tamarindo. Do not confuse this hotel with the world class resort with a similar name. The room was .... average. It featured two queen beds - very hard (normal by Costa Rican standards). It kind of had that Holiday Inn Express industrial feeling, but with a...

Stayed one night here. It was absolutely beautiful. Lucky for us there was not very many people here since it was a Thursday in July. It is very romantic and the hot springs were great.

I read through the reviews as I always do before I book a place and I was pleasantly surprised upon arrival, I don't understand what some of the low reviews could possibly be complaining about(there is just no pleasing some I guess).
