"Very Nice And Central Spot Near La Fortuna"
This was my first stop in Costa Rica, and I stayed here for 3 nights. If you are an avid review reader, you have probably heard most of what I will write; but I will reiterate it anyway, from my point of view. I wouldn't call it 'perfect', but it was overall an awesome place and definitely worth a stay for a few nights while checking out what the area has to offer. The Great: The grounds: Very well kept and manicured. Tons of foliage and labelled to help you identify plants. Lawn area very lush and everything was very kept up. It never felt over crowded and it wasn't too big or too small, though as stated there can be a walk from your room to the front. The staff: Excellent staff. Very nice and very helpful. Pretty quick too! Concierge great at knowledge and booking of excursions. Bar tenders were solid and relatively quick, though not overly friendly like at many places in the states. Internet: Read mixed reviews on this, but it worked great for me always and was working in the room. Was able to share my pics/vids at the end of each day with no lag. The Good: The breakfast buffet: Decent selection and everything was very tasty. Loved getting fueled up for the day of sightseeing. The rooms: Very clean and well setup. Do beware however... As many others have stated, the little casitas you stay in are like a duplex. You really can hear the people you share your little house with, and it was a bit unnerving at times. Nothing to panic over, but a bit more 'sound proofing' wouldn't hurt. The bathrooms are neat with the large shower. I get that the cracks in the plexi-glass above it are to let rain water in the the plants in there, but it did make the shower look a bit 'unfinished' and a bit scary as bugs could get in. (Had no bug problems however). The view from your porch is awesome as you gaze right upon the volcano. My room looked exactly as all the pictures show. The Ok: The food (other than breakfast): Overpriced as you would expect and will see at any location in the area. The trouble was it just wasn't really all that good. Nothing was bad, just nothing really stood out. The sushi had rave reviews, but I found it, ehh, good. Just not amazing. The pools: I always love a swim up bar and eatery and this has that. Nice to soak in the hot springs and have a cocktail. Nothing to 'wow' you there, but it serves it's purpose. I would suggest seeing 'Tabacon hot springs' for a wow experience. (Beware it is expensive for a day pass but worth it). The Rest: Nothing was 'bad' with this resort in any way. It does have an odd vibe perhaps, but that is because it (like the area) isn't a party type spot at all, and so there isn't any real night life there. That's ok. You should be getting rest to enjoy the sights in the day! I personally loved the La Fortuna waterfall and found the sky bridges (get a guide) a nice excursion. All excursions are pretty close but a car is useful if you really want to hop around. (Guess I should also mention my take on the roads there. Going around the lake if coming from Liberia is a bit rough. Mainly due to the very winding and narrow roads. The roads can be rough in spots, and for safety should be driven only when there is light to see well. That said, it isn't anything even a car can't handle in any area I went). So there is my take. As honest as I can put it. And when I thought it all through... 5 stars for this place. Though it does have room for improvements. You need a room in a slot in the room to keep power on there. No big deal. Ask them for an extra if you want to ensure it stays cooler.
"Spoil yourself "
Just got back from Costa Rica, Arenal Springs was the second leg of our holiday after leaving Tortuguero. We were not disappointed, the bungalows are set in their own private small gardens with parking spaces, good roads and pathways connecting them to each other and all amenities. Each bungalow is very well equipped, very comfortable and quite. Even had a hairdryer for those lucky people with hair! This is a smallish resort, so it never felt busy or over run with people, there are plenty of places to eat, drink meet other people or quite areas to just chill out. Most of the pools are warm, heated by the hot springs, there is a wet bar where you can sit drinking or eating in the pool served by the friendly staff, we had a few cocktails and visited it every day sometimes late into the evening. From our rooms we had a great view of the Volcano and surrounding countryside which was constantly changed by clouds and the weather. The local town, Fortuna is worth a visit, we went a few times by taxi to do a bit of shopping and some evening meals. Friendly place, felt safe and plenty of places to eat and shop. If you don't want to go into town there are very good restaurants on site with plenty of selection of food to choose from, the prices are reasonable too. All the staff are very friendly and there to help you relax and enjoy yourself. The reception staff are very helpful too organising towels, restaurant bookings, taxis and day trips. We went on the Sloth trip were we met Gustavo and Andrea our guides for 4 hours, they were fantastic and knew where to find not only Sloths but also frogs, toucan, iguanas and lots more. We had a great time and finished off the trip with a coffee and a walk around their gardens. We also took a taxi to the waterfall, where we bathed in the cool natural pools, well worth a trip but be prepared for the 500 steps. It will probably rain whilst your there, we went in the rainy season, took a brolly everywhere, but there is plenty of shelter and still things to do and it's all part of the experience! We left there feeling refreshed and fully relaxed ready for the next part of our adventure. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Family with two teenagers, all loved it. Pura Vida!!! For those that feel the need mobile phones work, there is free Wifi nearly everywhere on site which was good as long as there weren't too many people uploading huge images etc. You can drink the water from the taps and the same as for all of Costa Rica don't flush anything down the loo that you haven't eaten always use the bin for paper etc.
"Beautiful Volcano-Front Resort!"
I was traveling in June (beginning of rainy season) with my family for my brother and I's graduation trip. We arrived, were served fruit punch drinks, and informed we had been upgraded to the master suite, which contained a total of 3 jacuzzis, and outdoor shower, two mini bars, and hammocks outside. Not to mention an incredible view of the volcano from each doorway. They have golf carts you can request to take you anywhere on premises, and umbrellas at every hotel room in addition to every common area. There is a medium sized pool in addition to the enormous hot spring pool area that has a swim up sushi bar. The service was amazing with the exception of one night where a large group had arrived and was taking up most of the restaurant area. The pool areas aren't very large though as far as chairs and lounging areas, once the large group arrived it felt much more crowded, but we had been spoiled for most of the week with fewer guests. They have a pretty extensive breakfast in the morning, with some sort of meat in addition to pancakes or waffles and omelets with three different types of fruit and many types of bread. The whole property is beautiful, with lush tropical plants landscaped everywhere and the views never get old.
"Great hotel- amazing views"
We recently stayed at Arenal Springs and had a wonderful time. The rooms are smaller than they appear online, but the price is great and the service is excellent. Pools are lovely; hot springs are amazing. The views are unbeatable. We were at the base of the volcano and had clear views on multiple occasions. The hotel worked hard to make our experience a positive one. My daughter is allergic to gluten, and the concierge had someone from the restaurant come to meet with me upon our arrival. Breakfast was included and we ate dinner at the hotel's main restaurant most nights. They did a great job preparing gluten free meals for my daughter. We don't speak Spanish, and a few times, it would have been helpful to be able to communicate more effectively, but everyone was very accommodating. The chef made gluten free pancakes for my daughter, along with nutella and a variety of gluten free cookies. Though not our typical breakfast fare, it was helpful to have treats because my daughter couldn't eat the pastries on the buffet. There was one instance where there was some confusion over whether the ice cream contained gluten. I didn't think it did, so asked to see the ingredients. They brought the container right out. The ice cream contained glucose and there was some confusion until I explained that glucose is sugar- not gluten. That said, I would much prefer for the kitchen staff to be overly conservative! Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel!
"Expectations Far Exceeded and Experience Unparalleled"
My family and I split our vacation between the Arenal area and the Conchal (beach) area. We stayed at the Arenal Springs Resort and Spa for the first part, and, from the second we arrived at the Resort to the time we left, every lofty expectation I had was exceeded beyond belief! Service: The service at this resort is unparalleled. I have stayed at some very nice properties around the world (Ritz Carlton, Mandarin Oriental, Four Seasons, Waldorf-Astoria, St. Regis, etc.), and while they have all been magnificent, the service at the Springs was shockingly superior. From help with excursion suggestions, to exploring the property, to making sure my family had a memorable experience, the staff truly went above and beyond in making this a special trip. By the end of day 1, my family and I were greeted by name, and every time we had a question or a need, someone was right there to help. And unlike a lot of other countries in Central America (like Mexico), the Springs' employees truly cared and wanted to help rather than helping for the sake of a tip. Food: While we had some meals off the resort, the restaurants at the resort were fantastic. We ate at the sushi restaurant, which was surprisingly good, Tres Cascadas, and Ventanas. While all of the restaurants were great, Ventanas was truly a fantastic experience. The wine list was great (including Far Niente Chardonnay, which I was surprised to see), the food is unique and excellent, and the staff there made the dining experience all the more enjoyable. I want to especially thank Maikol and Armando at Ventanas for putting the perfect touches on this part of our vacation. We ended up eating here two nights in a row, as the food was great, and the experience was even better. On the second night, which was right before my anniversary, Maikol presented my wife with a bouquet of flowers and even put on music my kids wood like. To say the meal and experience were excellent and entertaining does not do it justice. Again, thank you Maikol and Armando! You guys are great and the epitome of Pura Vida and helped us see and experience the "real side" of Costa Rica and the Costa Rican people. I cannot thank you enough. And if you go, be sure to ask Maikol and Armando about the after dinner Flor de Cana 25 year old rum experience. Remarkable! Resort Property and Rooms: The resort is meticulously maintained and perfect. The room was large, spacious, comfortable, and had an amazing view of the Arenal Volcano. Our balcony also had a hammock, rocking chairs, and a table and chairs which we used everyday. I was a bit concerned when I saw that our room was in a different area. I later learned that it was the newest building, and the 150 meter walk is under a covered walkway. Things to do: There are a lot of things to do on and off the resort. We did the cat feeding, which provides an opportunity to see rescued animals, including pumas, ocelots, toucans, macaws, and monkeys, and to feed the toucans. Onsite, inexpensive, and a lot of fun especially with kids. The hot springs were great as well. Offsite, we did excursions/tours over two days. First, we did a combination of the Hanging Bridges and the La Fortuna Waterfall. The handing bridges are great, as we saw a lot of wildlife, the bridges are great, and it showed the Costa Rican rain forests. It is about a 2 mile walk and is well worth the time. Depending on the time of year, do bring a light jacket or poncho. The La Fortuna waterfall is really pretty and nice to see, but be advised, it has about 500 steps down and back up. It is a bit of a trek when you are loaded down with kids' gear! We also did the Sky-Trek cable car ride and zip line tour, and it was amazing. We were assigned two people -- Brandon and Freddie -- as our guides, and they were great. They did a great job working with our kids, and when they noticed I was not a big fan of heights, they created a lot of levity and humor that helped me relax. In addition, they spent a lot of time showing me the safety of the lines and gear. Overall Review: If you want to be pampered in a beautiful resort while experiencing Costa Rica, the Costa Rican culture, and the Costa Rican people, then the Arenal Springs is the perfect place for you. It truly is luxury at its finest, the staff is top notch, and the only possible limits on your experience will be determined by you, as the Springs' management, employees, and facilities will exceed your every desire. Well done, and please keep up the good work!
