Had a great time here. Much better in person than even the pictures. Felt like a luxury vacation spot. Several people have commented on the wifi, but we had no issues. It was a bit slow at times, but we were always able to connect. We did not have a car when we were at this resort which is something...

This is a great place to stay. Their hot springs are awesome. So nice to come back from excursions during the day and get into the hot springs. This resort is so pretty, very clean and service is great. The food is delicious. They changed the breakfast menu every morning which was nice. Lunch and dinner are pricey but every...

My wife and I spent two days here as one of the stops on a Caravan Tour. Most of the accommodations were duplex bungalows, so you only had, at most, one neighbor. The room was clean and the bath had a huge shower. The beds were quite firm. Fortunately, I can sleep on my back or side. The grounds were...

The Springs was the last 3 days of our girls' trip to Costa Rica and we all wished we could have stayed there longer. It was a wonderland with the mineral pools, awesome view of the volcano (luckily, even though it was the rainy season, we had no rain and very little cloud cover). Food was great, especially the fruit...

Reviewed 21 January 2015 via mobile

The setup is nice and they drive you around on golf carts to make life even easier. It's basically a gated community of town homes. The breakfast was great and includes an egg-omelette station. Great views of the volcano when the skies clear. The hot springs are basic (three pools) but nice. Would definitely stay here again.
