This is a place where you should devote a full day for indulgence. We arrived around 10 am and had wonderful day passed here with a modest dinner. If you really want to enjoy the day and use the offerings this place can provide (something we were not aware of when we planned our trip), you should book a room...

We were staying in a hotel without natural hot springs and visited The Springs on a day pass. There are numerous hotels with hot springs, all of them seemingly expensive so we nearly didn't visit at all. So glad we did! We paid $60 each which got us a two day pass. The hot springs are amazing, over a dozen...

Dear ot_james, Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review about The Springs Resort and Spa.

We spent part of the school vacation at the Springs with our two children ages 10 and 12. What a great time we had! We stayed in room 101 which had the extra room and bathroom for the kids which was perfect. The views were spectacular, the staff friendly and helpful. We ate most of our meals at the resort...

The property is huge and the rooms are very beautifully designed. As soon as we got there, the guide took us around and showed us where the restaurants, spa, hot springs, and the pools were. We were also greeted with refreshing drinks on this tour. The receptionist upgraded the room with a better view, and once we got to the...

Our second stop on our Costa Rican dream vacation found us looking up at Arenal volcano which until recently had been active. This was one amazing place with very comfortable rooms and an amazing property. There are less than 50 rooms in total spread among the property. Natural hot spring water runs through all the pools, with varying temperatures to...
