Very nice stay at Arenal Springs
We had a very nice stay at Arenal Springs. The room was comfortable, the pools were very nice, and the location was absolutely beautiful. It's not a high-end resort: the food is somewhat mediocre (the sushi was a highlight) and the resort shows some wear-and-tear, but it's a very pleasant place to stay as a family if you're visiting the area around La Fortuna.

8/10 Very good

Staff was wonderful - friendly & eager to please. Food was ok. Hot springs were nice. You were able to eat while sitting at the swim up bar. This was odd. Our friend accidentally dropped pieces of ceviche in the pool; I can only imagine what else was dropped in there.
