We decided to try this property based on the many rave reviews which are usually a good predictor for our experience, but we were disappointed in this case. There is much to like about this hotel, especially the wonderful views, polished service and luxurious accommodations, which I don't fault, but it's not for every taste. The hotel is set far...

From the moment we arrived - from the opening intro to the hotel, the quality of amenities, facilities and service exceed many other experiences. Rooms are expansive, immaculate, and richly appointed. Staff is well trained and infinitely attentive and gracious. Food in all areas was outstanding. Be prepared for plenty of rain. We planned many excursions but spent a lot...

We bought a two day hot springs package. It was beautiful and very relaxing. The grounds are well kept and the water is definitely hot. Wonderful waterfall to lay under as well. Also visited the restaurant-the food is good but certainly overpriced. The drinks are average overall. We enjoyed our visit overall

We spent 2 nights in the Villa Calatea and it was absolutely stunning! Plenty of room for 5 of us (2 adults and 3 children). The rooms were clean and the views from every window were amazing. The complimentary golf cart and private plunge pool were also a great hit. We ordered room service for breakfast and lunches and ate...

This place is utterly ridiculous and a scam. I am from Los Angeles and go to a spa on Rodeo drive regularly and the prices at the spa here were triple what a spa on RODEO DRIVE cost. Sorry I don't want a $250 mani pedi... I understand it is upscale but it is more expensive than the Waldorf Astoria...

Most beautiful place I have ever stayed!! The rooms were amazing, the hotel was amazing, the grounds were breathtaking, the hot springs were so fun and so beautiful! The service is really that of a 5 star hotel. They catered to any request we had. The food was also very good. The only little things I could even say I...

Sarah that works in the game room was the highlight of my visit to the spa. She was wonderful, kind, welcoming and a superb staff member. The springs were fantastic and extremely calming and liberating. The layout was wonderful, the experience was unforgettable and the staff were great and accommodating.

We stayed there as a family of 6 over Christmas 2016. We stayed in the 2 level rooms. Unfortunately the first night there i fell down the stairs. The next morning my husband went to the front to get some help where to take me to be seen by a physician. The staff (Carolina and Johnathan) were amazing and arranged...

We were staying at a different hotel in the area and got a day pass to The Springs Resort. We had access to the resort until 10:00 that night, and we made full use of it! There are about 5 or 6 activities to choose from, with the day pass, you can pick 2. We started with a delicious Costa...

My wife and I stayed at the Springs for our honeymoon in mid-december 2016 for 7 nights. Ultimately, we were thrilled with our stay and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a high-end getaway in the Arenal area. Frankly, driving by many of the other resorts in the area, the Springs seems to be in...

“I don't think there is a bad room! But I like that we were in the "lower building" so we were closer to the hot springs.”
