We stayed at this resort while on a group trip to Costa Rica. Loved the bungulo style accomodations with the rainforest esq bathroom. The view of the Arenal Volcano from our room was breathtaking both day and night. Our package included breakfast and dinner. Breakfast was buffet style with many options and dinner never dissapointed. A plus for our group...

We booked this place on our second night in La Fortuna. The first night we stayed at a neighboring property that was really lackluster and had lied on its description in hotels.com. When we booked Arenal Springs Resort we called the property and asked if they had a free shuttle to pick us up from the other hotel. They said...

Every room has volcano view. The rooms are spacious, but not detached. The breakfast is really excellent, diner also, but expensive. If you are a birder: leave. A lot of swimming pools. Some are heated with water coming from the Arenal volcano.
