This place was absolutely beautiful! Beyond our wildest expectations! Located in the jungle with all the lush greenery and a breathtaking view of the Arenal volcano to wake up to every morning. The staff was so friendly and helpful. Because there are only 47 rooms it is very intimate and relaxing. The 18 hot springs around the resort are wonderfully...

We spent two nights at the Springs Resort and Spa. We shared a 2 bedroom suite with our children. There is a lot of privacy between the two rooms.. The resort/rooms are incredible. The attention to detail is fantastic. Our room overlooked Arenal, and we were fortunate enough to see the volcano in clear view with no clouds.. The resort...

We spent a couple nights here recently and it was perfect. I'm a beach person so I wasn't sure how much I'd enjoy it but it was out of this world. The views, the grounds... all amazing. It was actually my favorite part of the trip. The pictures don't even do it justice. We stayed in the honeymoon suite with...

We spent two nights here as part of a tour. The resort is absolutely beautiful with plenty of green lawns and shrubbery separating the bungalows. It has a hot springs pool which is warmer than a bath. Drink or eat by the pool bar while sitting in the warm water and watch the iguanas sunbathing in the surrounding greenery. There...
