About Hotel Arenal Springs

Under the gaze of the mighty Arenal Volcano, six kilometres away, Hotel Arenal Springs allows guests to bask in its soothing hot springs, surrounded by natural rainforests.

The guest suites with their high ceilings have a natural feel with earthy tones and wooden furnishings. Each has large windows and elegant doors with their own sitting areas and cable TV. The bathrooms boast large rainforest showers, big enough for two.

The springs, with high concentrations of calcium and magnesium, include features such as waterfalls, hot tubs and hydro-massages. Hotel Arenal Springs also hosts three freshwater pools.

Guests can enjoy international and Italian cuisine and snacks within the hotel as well as Japanese specialities at the Sakana Sushi Bar.

The Arenal Volcano National Park is around ten minutes away by car, with La Fortuna Waterfall about ten kilometres away. The Kalambu Hot Springs Water Park is just a five-minute drive away.

Positive Reviews

Relaxing resort with varied activities on offer

The resort grounds include a well maintained garden to relax in, as well as a full service spa and hot springs surrounded by plants and flowers. The Arenal Natura Ecological Park is less than ten-minutes' walk away and a range of local activities can be arranged through the resort, including zip lining, caving and horse riding. The small yet lively town of La Fortuna is a 12-minute drive away from the resort.

Beautiful views from your room

The rooms at Arenal Springs Resort are well presented, comfortable, clean and quiet. All rooms feature a private terrace with views of the Arenal Volcano. The well maintained garden areas separate the rooms to give each guest privacy. Many guests were also delighted to see hummingbirds outside their rooms.

Exceptional customer service

The staff who are friendly, courteous and attentive are known to go out of their way to welcome guests and ensure that they have a relaxed and memorable stay. On several occasions, guests who were celebrating a special event commented that staff were thoughtful and gave them extra care and attention.

Negative Reviews

Lacks intimacy and charm

The resort is very popular during high season and some guests felt that the large number of guests took away from the charm and intimate setting of the resort. Some guests advised that couples looking for a romantic trip away may prefer a smaller resort.

Overpriced restaurant

Some guests found the food and drinks served at the on-site restaurants to be expensive and recommended trying out the local restaurants instead.

Spotty Wi-Fi connection

While free Wi-Fi is provided, some guests found that it could not be reliably access from all areas.
