My family stayed here for 5 days. The views and multiple pools (both chlorine and hot springs) were impressive. The resorts Club Rio was awesome. We went tubing and went on the cat feeding tour. The game room was a nice touch and offered everything for families to play something together, not just video games. The restaurants were average and WAY over priced - 2 adults and 1 child was $57 every morning for the buffet, a la cart was even more. The sushi restaurant was my favorite and priced reasonably. My main beef with this place is the service is not the standards I would expect from the most expensive place around ($780/night for honeymoon suite). Most employees barely spoke English, some not at all. Even servers barely knew more than menu items. The lady at the spa literally told me she didn’t understand me when I was asking about a manicure and pedicure. Very few people seemed fluent. Why fluency of the language most guests speak isn’t a requirement is beyond me.. This wouldn’t have been such an issue if the service was good. However, waiters forgot drink orders multiple times, we were seated once with no menus asked about water and then forgotten about. I had to finally go find menus and flag someone down. The food always took forever to be made and the restaurant was virtually empty. After you eat your ticket takes a good 15 minutes or longer to receive. The staff is not busy, just in absolutely no rush to do their job. It’s as if they’ve never been to a restaurant to know how things work. I was amazed each time at how consistently the service was lacking in this expensive, luxury resort. The house cleaning also didn’t restock coffee, lotion, etc. on the first day. I had to call to get the items. House cleaning never did restock my lotion or conditioner the whole week. The room was cleaned well, just normal details were overlooked. I’m not ok with “Costa Rican” time when your at a luxury resort spending over $1000 per day on food, activities, and room. I expect staff to be trained for their job. I would not recommend this resort with an upgraded room. Get the cheapest room, everyone enjoys the same amenities and paying for upgrades will just frustrate you when the service is disappointing.

Our family of four (two adults and two girls - 5 and 10) spent 4 days at this incredible resort. Easy drive from guanacaste, valet parking and check in was a breeze. Enjoyed a cocktail while waiting for our check in. The resort is huge - they drove us to the room in a golf cart. The room was incredible - three beds to accomadate the four of us. Stocked fridge. tv. great linen and huge bathroom. Hot tub on the balcony with a view of the volcano. The springs were incredible - and the kids spent hours on the monkey slide. Bars hidden throughout. The restaurants offered good variety - we had dinner twice in the french/italian themed place, had breakfast daily in the larger buffet area - everything was fresh and delicious. Reasonable price given the quality and location. Staff were friendly and efficient. Hotel location is great - great hop off point for all the excursions in the area - concierge took care of all the arrangements - all top notch. Easily, the nicest hotel we've ever stayed in - the kids are still talking about it. I would definitely return, and I've recommended to all my friends and family.

We took our family of 5 and traveled with another family of 4 for our first trip to Costa Rica. We stayed at Arenal based on recommendations from friends on activities. This resort had it all! We were there for 4 nights the second week of January. The resort was fairly empty, the hot springs are fantastic and they have multiple temperatures including a slide for kids. We did the tubing down the river and everyone had fun and we had multiple guides along keeping us safe - my 6 yo didn't love it but survived! We did the horse back riding - again we all had a great time - this was up and down areas, through the stream and across pastures so a little bit of variation in the travel. We also did the wild life sanctuary and got incredibly lucky that Mulan the sloth was on the move and she didn't disappoint! The resort was clean, the staff was wonderful and Jerry made a "Perfect Margarita" that was worth the $. While I'm sure you could find resorts that are less expensive everything was taken care of for us without a lot of travel time between events and with 5 kids age 6-11 this maximized our family fun time and we'd highly recommend it! Plus every morning you wake up to a view of the volcano right out your window with toucans and other birds whizzing past your balcony

My family and I cannot say enough positive things about the Springs Resort. Five of us stayed in the Presidential Suite for two nights in January (not long enough). The accommodation was regal, comfortable, and spacious. We were very pleased with the friendly staff, concierge and front desk, and the property. The buildings and property are quite large but the capacity is on the smaller side, so it feels personal and uncrowded, even during a peak week. We enjoyed many of the 28 pools, and you can have one all to yourself. We did not get a chance to go on offsite excursions but took the short (<5 minutes) bus ride to enjoy the rock wall and river tubing right on property. Be sure to try the more natural-looking hot springs near the river if you go.

Over all the place was great but I had to give them a poor rating due to the fact that it seems like they don't pay attention to how their animals are treated. We took the all day pass for the thermal waters as well as the activities. I've been in many horse riding tours in the past in costa rica and this one was by far the worse one. it just seemed like the horse were depressed and tired, as well as skinny. The horse I was riding was the smallest of them all and the other people in the group were all female, and they had bigger horses than mine... also I asked one of the tour guides if we should switch my horse because it seemed like it was tired, and he said that there was no way it could be tired since it was its first tour, but that maybe it was because it didn't have one of its horseshoes...! I should have stopped the tour then but we were half way into it, now I regret not doing it. After knowing this I payed more attention and the horse seemed in pain and it couldn't walk well. I tried to give it the least amount of pressure but when we had to go uphill it was painful watching it getting up the hill... Over all the thermal pools are great and also the food, but the way these animals were treated was so horrible, the total opposite of what you would think Costa Rican people treat animals. Please be more mindful and care better for your animals.
