We loved all the nature , flaura & fauna at this hotel. But we especially loved soaking in the hot mineral springs every day. Beautiful songbirds sang for us in the morning and we even saw colorful macaws at the entrance. The wifi was iffy in the room but worked well in the reception area. The prices in the gift...

Our group of 8 stayed here for 4 nights at the end of June. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We were welcomed with a cold glass of juice and went through the check-in process. However, we were less than enthused about having to wear ID bands during the stay. Golf carts and drivers were provided to help us get our bags...

Spent 3 nights here in July. Our "junior suite" was really just a relatively small hotel room with 2 queen beds and not much more space. Shower was cool with the rocks. We also had a bit of a bug issue in the bathroom on our last night (they may have been tiny ants). Check in was great and greeters...

We really enjoyed this first stop of 3 places on our honeymoon. The hotel arranged for private transfer for us from the airport to the hotel, and they were even able to change it for us at the last minute when our flight times changed. We were greeted by a friendly driver and the hotel had even packed a cooler...

We stayed at the Springs for 3 nights during July, 2014. Although our room faced the volcano, we never even saw it there because it was so rainy and foggy. Bring an umbrella if you are going in July. The grounds of the hotel are immaculate and the staff is incredibly friendly. The hot springs are beautiful. And unlike other...

Just returned from a 3 night stay at Arenal Springs. The property is absolutely beautiful and the food was very good, better than we expected.

We stayed here for the first 2 nights on our trip to Costa Rica. It is an easy 2.5 hour drive from the airport in San Jose on paved smooth roads. The landscaping here is beautiful, many flowering (I don't think native) plants. The rooms are set up in mini bungalows, 2 rooms to a building. The shower is different,...

One of the most exquisite places I have ever had the pleasure to visit.

All cabins have a full view of the volcano, but be prepared to not see the top as...

Being from the south, one of our favorite things to do is sit on our porches, and drink tea. The porches at this hotel were one of the best, and the amazing view of the volcano, from the mist lifting off the volcano in the morning, to the sun setting behind it in the evening. It was perfect!

The country is so beautiful and the motel has some of the grandest views. You need to make sure your motel has good food because the area is limited and this place has very good cuisine. You can easily get to all the attractions in the area
