The Springs is one of the most beautiful hotels and resorts in the world. Absolute paradise in Costa Rica. Our jaws dropped when we entered our room. Stunning design and furnishings. An inviting hammock awaits you on your patio where you can gaze straight at the Arenal volcano. Dining and service were top notch. And then there were the springs....

My family which included 3 teenagers just stayed at The Springs Resort and had a great time. The resort was so beautiful it was hard to leave to do the nearby adventures. Staff was great.

This place is incredibly amazing!! This was the second time I visited The Springs and there was a reason I came back! (The first time just wasn't enough and I was not disappointed the second time).

Amazing Resort, but the Perdido Bar NEEDS A TV!!!!! It's the best bar at the resort by far and it has the best bartender at the resort, in the most amazing location also.. but yet it's the only bar on the resort without A TV. Which sucks big time.

We had stayed at this place's sister resort, The Peace Lodge, a few years ago, liked that and decided to try this. It's a similar property in design, only bigger and with a much greater emphasis on getting wet. The Springs is currently about a 3-3.5 hour drive from the Liberia Airport (a much simpler, calmer option than the busier...
