There's a Light... Over at the Frankenstein Place
We arrived at the Liberia airport just before 4:00 PM local time. By the time we got through customs, got our rental car and were on our way, it was about 5:30 PM. It started getting dark on the drive up the mountain to Dos Rios and the wind, rain and fog moved in. The roads deteriorated from nice pavement to an awful rocky and muddy track. Our GPS kept losing signal in the mountains and trees, so it was a good thing we had a good paper map as backup (bring your own, the rental car maps are not detailed enough). It took us almost three hours to get to the hotel. The resort didn't look like much at the entry, but we found a veritable Shangri-La once we entered. Beautiful property, wonderful staff and quite an oasis in the wilderness.

Blue Springs is definitely NO RESORT.
We stayed all over CR in non-resort, family-owned type hotels. We have good comparisons. This was THE worst. The a/c in our room sounded like a hurricane. Spontaneously in the morning, it sounded like a normal a/c, which was no help for a good night's sleep. Blue Springs has 5 pools, but they are all dirty and green. The hotel claims they are natural - no American would get in. We swam in several other natural pools in CR, and none were green & dirty. Also, there were 2 "natural saunas" which used small hot springs to supposedly heat the sauna, but those were like mini cess-pools. The bartender who served us from the bar and dinner was noticeably sick. There was a band aid found in a water glass. The mop bucket was stored on the same shelf as the food was served. The food itself was horrible and service was much slower than in other locations in CR. They ran out of towels - no towels for showers or for the pool. We asked and but they did not deliver. There was a water leak under our bathroom sink. Not a small one, but a giant leak from the sink to the floor so the sink was unusable. The check-in building was embarrassing, open barn. Staff not friendly. This hotel does not deserve to be called a resort - it is far from it. And it is NOT on the "blue river" as the name and description describes. It is a long commute to get there - our family LEFT the hotel a day early and forfeited 2 rooms for the 2nd night. That is how BAD this hotel was.

Beautiful property
The casitas are awesome. The botanical gardens, mud bath and hot pools are all on site and included in the room rate. Food was overpriced and had limited menu. Spa services on site.
