“What a marvelous place and very luxurious!”
Reviewed 28 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

The house and view are surely breathtaking and a marvelous way to wake up in the morning or look over at the side at the night and the stars....amazing. We were a part of 8 and had plenty of room to cook, swim in the pool, star gaze, relax, look at so many bird, and oh..the monkeys. Within walking distance a great German cafe with trail and small waterfall. Tom and Maria took care of all our needs. Very clean property inside the house and grounds are very well groomed. Short paths to walk. Grand hill down and back up again allow you to take the grandness of his Casa and smell the gardenias. Transportation was great with Emily and travel to many areas hanging bridges, town, 2 hrs horseback riding up to a volcano to return to the hot springs was absolutely the best!!! So many more things to do but so little time. I need to go back to explore more and just to rest in a relaxing paradise. Tom and Maria are the best!

“The Casa Grande is even better than the pictures!”
Reviewed 24 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Fabulous, awesome, amazing, clean, spotless. We didn't want to leave.
Tom and Maria were wonderful to help answer questions and set up transportation for the week. Their recommendations for Los Lagos Hot springs was a hit.
The view from the veranda is better than the pics on line. Sitting in the hot tub at night with the millions of visible stars is unbelievable.
Tip: if you are not renting a car, organize a food menu because there is only one place within walking distance. We bought food and grilled out on the patio. There is everything you need for grilling.
Would love to go back.

“Photos do not express the beauty of Villa Springs”
Reviewed 20 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

My family and I stayed at Arenal Springs Villas by the Lake-Casa Primera from February 6-10, 2013. I’d like to start by saying that the photos do not express the beauty of Villa Springs and the surrounding area. I was pleasantly surprised. Villa Springs is approximately 45 minutes from the touristy La Fortuna. It is set back in a lovely landscaped acreage where you will find several nicely furnished properties, a pool, and walking path. The nearby town of Nuevo Arenal is approximately 20 minutes and has several good restaurants, grocery, and liquor stores. We discovered an array of bird and wildlife; including monkeys and coati we never imagined to see. The property itself is well maintained by staff that regularly cleans the pool and gardens. Our lodging- Casa Primera, was furnished with whimsical carved wood furniture, outdoor patio, and upbeat artwork, as well as all the comforts of home including; cable television, internet wi-fi, dishes, coffee machine, washing machine, and hairdryer. The house is impeccably clean. A maid visited us during our stay providing us with clean towels and picking up after us three days a week. Tom and Maria, the hosts, are very friendly and helped us book tours and navigate the winding roads of Costa Rica. You can easily get tours at this location or drive your rental car. In comparison with some of the hotels we looked into the rates are great values, especially when you consider all the amenities. Arenal Springs has beautiful landscapes, and tranquility. I will return!
