We went on a family vacation and spent 3 nights at The Springs. It was simply a great spot to stay. I can't say enough about the property and the staff. I especially want to recommend the concierge staff at the hotel. Our family was, unfortunately, not low maintenance on this trip, but the concierge team were able to accommodate...

The Springs Resort is beautiful. It truly is a destination resort, with plenty to do without every having to leave the place. Club Rio has it all. Though we didn't have enough time to experience all of its activities, we did get to do the Twilight Walk/Feed the Cats. Gerald, our guide for that walk, was informative and very passionate...

Wow, this property is so well maintained. The rooms are well appointed with hammocks, table and chairs on the balcony so you can watch the volcano or wildlife for hours, the shower is as big as my walk in closet and in the vein of TMI - the toilet paper throughout the resort is baby-powder scented. Who thinks of that!?!...
