This was a great place! The staff were extremely professional and friendly. The rooms were incredible - that shower! The property was clean, and kid friendly. We had a fantastic time and would definitely go back.

This is a very comfortable property with marvelous views of the Volcano; especially out of the front windows of the bungalow's. You can lay in bed looking out of your window and have the spectacular vistas of the entire volcano mountain top. The hot springs are amazing and the pools and landscaping are picture perfect! The breakfast buffet was scrumptious with a mix of Costa Rican, North American, and European options. The food was very good with the exception of the Pizza (see below). The staff were very courteous and attended to your every need. Overall, great experience. The only recommendation we have is to look into the quality of the Pizza Product served at the Main restaurant, it lacked any flavor and needs improvement.

The property is amazing and the hot springs are great for relaxing. The view from my room was better than i could have imagined it and the staff was top notch. The guy at tour desk gave us the best insight on what to do and how to plan accordingly for each day and that helped us get the most out of our days

Wow, what a great property with beautiful landscaping that is well maintained. The rooms are very very nice and comfortable. Staff was incredible for our Honeymoon and made it very special with a great massage. We will be going back on our next visit as they rock. Great views of the volcano when the weather is good. Rain showers were incredible to run around in the rain.

Nice friendly staff good views ok breakfast buffet

Love this resort. Beautiful views. It is away from town however.

Nice resort with comfy rooms, good food, great service and hot / cold pools. Located a few minute by car from town. The resort is good for calm, quiet, battery recharging.

I booked last minute, not knowing what to expect but I decided to stay there the next few days just because of how happy and welcomed I felt there.

We travel all over the world this is the most beautiful resort we have stayed in from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave you see only beauty and beautiful people that work at this resort you will love it 200% recommended TELL THEM ALAN KAHN FROM MIAMI SENT YOU. PS ,Cant wait to go back

Wonderful staff and great facilities. Great view of the volcano and soothing pools heated by volcano

Very nice place, outstanding view of the Arenal Volcano. Nice grounds with plenty of space. Great to go with family.

This is my third stay and as usual the service was wonderful, the grounds were beautiful, and the pools ranged from hot to cool.

Room with Volcano view as all rooms at property do. Three hot springs and a pool. Great coffee and solid included breakfast buffet. Nice fridge with 2 free beer and waters in room. Parking outside of door. Crazy good water pressure in shower.

We stayed here for three nights and loved it all. Very relaxing. Quiet cabins. Excellent pool area for kids and adults. Free morning yoga!

Air conditioning needs more capacity for those very hot days

Staff was simply awesome! Nice, genuine and very helpful without being intrusive or aggressive. Perfect hospitality! Didn't bother w Tabacon bc the hot springs at the Arenal Springs Resort were perfect. The food prices were too high for what we were served, but that's the only negative. Drinks were great!

This is a very nice hotel in the arenal area. Off the main road the rooms are not in a stacked building their side by side each room has a yard very beautiful landscaping. Just have to be able to walk from your room to the pool area. The dining area is very elaborate, food was good. We were greeted at the door with drinks which really started our vacation off well. The hot springs there were very nice as you go up they get warmer. One of the hot springs has a bar at the side. We ate at the sushi restaurant if you are a bit of a sushi fanatic you probably will not like there's sushi. The gift shop we got a lot of souvenirs from good selection. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and spacious the AC runs on your door card so sometimes it takes awhile for your room to cool down. The shower is very unique and gorgeous it's laid out in such a way that if it rains outside it drips down the stone wall into the little garden next to the beautiful tile shower but being connected to the outside it can be a little warm and humid but totally worth it. I would definitely go back if given the chance.

Had a wonderful stay with family. Comfortable & clean room, well maintained and beautiful outdoors with great view of the volcano. Enjoyed the hot springs pool. Helpful staff and great service !!

Liked being a couple miles outside of town. Resort quiet and peaceful. La Fortuna has over 100 dining and drinking establishments when you want to go into town. Breakfast was good (nice buffet plus eggs cooked to order), included. Restaurant food (dinner) quite good but a bit spendy. First night opted for appetizer with wine and shared dessert. Went to town for meals after that Staff is top notch on friendliness and helpfulness. Rooms comfy. Showers really nice. No sitting area in room but who cares in a resort. Nice swim- up pool bar. Hot springs (of course).
