“The most relaxing vacation I had in many years”
Reviewed 13 May 2012 for a stay in April 2012

My friend and I had a wonderful time in Arenal Springs Villas. This place exceeded our expectations. The views were beautiful and the vegetation was exuberant beyond description. We also saw a variety of birds and even monkeys right around the property.
We found Arenal Springs Villas to be a very impeccably clean and decorated in great taste with all the modern conveniences.
The owners Tom and Maria were excellent hostesses and treat everyone like an old friend and always willing to help us at any time with tours and information about restaurants and places to go around the area.
We are sure this is a place we will come back and recommend to our friends and family.

“This is a place to destress, reassess your priorities, commune with nature on a level one might have thought impossible,”
Reviewed 28 April 2012 for a stay in March 2012

This setting is serene, beautiful and nurturing all at once. The Villa Primivera, where we stayed, was spacious, comfortable and well equipt right down to the veranda with a breathtaking view of Lake Arenal. The sights and sounds of flora and fauna were exquisite and were enough to continually excite the senses day and night. The pool area was very well maintained and a lovely setting for lounging outside on the beautiful grounds.
Arenal Springs Villas by the Lake is a lovely gated community separate from the touristy hustle and bustle of some resorts, but a short enough drive to interesting activities and excellent restaurants to make the location convenient. It is suitable for families, friends, and spacious enough for reunions. Tom and Maria were perfect hosts. My stay there was too short. I look forward to my return.

“Paradise Found”
Reviewed 9 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

The house had beautiful views, was exceptionally clean, and fully appointed with everything we needed and more. We loved the well-maintained, lush tropical setting, clean pool, and waking up to howler monkeys and birds. Tom and Maria Louisa were helpful prior to and after booking our stay, including a suggestion to contract Balo and Emily as drivers for our large family group. They ended up being the highlight of the trip because they were so kind, accomodating, and freely shared the best bits of Tico Costa Rica with us. Great location for views and proximity to Nuevo Arenal (10 mins.), La Fortuna (1 hour), and Liberia airport (1.5-2.5 hours depending on traffic). Be aware of steep hills for walking and driving in this location.
