We loved our stay here on our honey moon. The people, the view, the food and the service is amazing. We felt calm, relaxed and taken care of.

Cabins all face the mountain for a beautiful view. Cabins were very clean and the grounds are manicured like you have never seen. With all the rain this place is green, green, green with birds everywhere.
The meals are the best in morning so don't sleep in. If you have booked through a travel agent you will be seeing the same menu for lunch and dinner. That gets old real quick after 2 days. So ask manager for a upgrade menu. It's only afew dollars more and alot more choices.
A must do is after a hard day of walking in the rain forest visit: TABACION SPA. down the road. 20 Hot Pools and average food. Rated as one of the top 100 Spa's in the world.
Have a good time

This resort is very beautiful. It is located just below the volcano so there are amazing views. The service was very good. The open air restaurant had delicious food and even went out of the way to make us lunch when they were between serving hours. The thermal pool was awesome! The beds were a little hard for me and not having a clock in the room was weird but there was free Pepsi, water, & beer in the fridge. We had a great time and enjoyed our stay. We recommend this resort and would stay here again.

Only spent two nights here, but definitely enjoyed it. The room was pretty average, but the grounds were amazing. I saw tons of birds and frogs just walking around and could hear howler monkeys nearby. The restaurant was nice, as well. Only complaints were that the bed was a little hard and the road into the place was a little bumpy.

Arenal Springs Resort is amazing! I have stayed here twice within the last year. The views from all the rooms are beautiful!!! And the grounds are beautiful!! The rooms are very clean and the staff is very nice and helpful. The free breakfast every morning is also delicious, and you get a good taste of Costa Rican food. There is a concierge that will help book special trips which is a great amenity. The bar off the lobby is also very nice. Manuel the bartender is a very personable. We loved going to the bar for a drink just to talk to him! You can't beat this place-- highly recommend!!

The rooms are really nice and you couldn't ask for a better view of the volcano and lush grounds. The maid made the most amazing elephant out of the towels, we were really impressed with her talent. Fridge and TV in the room, free internet in the lobby - one even had Java installed on it so we were able to check on our dogs online. A bit pricey but we enjoyed staying here and would do so again.

The resort more than met our expectations after our first night in San Jose in an expensive but characterless hotel. The grounds are beautiful and we spotted a variety of birds, butterflies and tropical flora. The hot pool was very welcome as the temepratures in late December were quite cool. The rooms are spacious, the bathrooms are functional and the beds firm. We had most of our meals in the main restaurant, both the service and food were good. We sampled the hot springs at 'The Springs' (another nearby hotel) and also had dinner there, which we thought was not as good as Arenal Springs.
