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. The location is a bit remote so food options outside of hotel are limited but the property has enough options. The hot spring pools are amazing. It rained the entire time we were there but...

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. The grounds are gorgeous overflowing with flowers, natural fruit trees, indigenous plants and a huge variety of birds (especially cool are the scarlet macaws and hummingbirds) and butterflies. 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 rooms...

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

We loved Arenal Springs. A very friendly welcome with a fruit cocktail. Had a buggy ride to our room with a very friendly driver, which contained swan-towels on the bed and a complimentary mini-bar. Really liked the bathroom and shower, which had an outdoor feel. The swimming pool area was great, with a nice variety of pools, including a wet...

Loved everything about this place except for the sushi bar. Not good, otherwise I'd give it a 5. Because the weather in the area is so mild/cool, especially in the rainy season when we were there, the hot springs fed pools are amazing. The two main pools (one cool, one hot) share the swim up bar and sushi bar. Temp...
