When we were there, there were only my family and another lady. The hot spring is very nice and surrounding is beautiful. There were a lot of flowers. We took a lot of pictures. We spend three hours tried different pools from cold to hot. Pool side bar was closed. We also had buffet dinner. The food was average probably... More

Another highlight of our Costa Rica trip. Such a picturesque spot and was not the least bit busy while we were there. Plenty of different pools and an awesome view of the volcano, some horses on the hillside and stunning landscaping. The front desk staff was friendly and really helpful. She made suggestions for more stuff to do and how... More

Some of the best hot springs I have ever been to and at a great price! Loved all the pools (fyi they are not natural pools) and waterfalls. Especially enjoyed the beds they have in the water, very relaxing! They had great drinks that you could take with you around the pools and a wonderful dinner.

This hot springs is GORGEOUS. Designed in a very luxury fashion with multiple different pools to traverse through. Come at night for a quiet, almost private experience. We ate dinner there as well which was peaceful and romantic. Excellent stop for us as a couple!

I was disappointed with our trip to the thermal hot springs at Paradise hot springs hotel. This may have been due to my expectations rather than anything else, I was just expecting something a little more natural. There are 3 pools which are basically the size of small swimming pools, they were warm but not deep enough to swim in,... More

We had a 14 hour excursion that ended at Paradise hot springs so we were ready for some R&R. The hot springs exceeded our expectations. The owners son is the one who greeted us and told us about the facilities. He couldn't have been nicer. We put in our reservation time and order for dinner then hit the springs. The... More

We checked out Paradise Hot Springs as it was part of a 6-in-1 full day excursion with Desafio Adventure Company. I love the ambiance here (we were there are night). But we were at Tabacon Hot Springs a couple days before Paradise Hot Springs and Paradise just doesn't compare. With "Hot Springs" in the name, I assumed that it was... More

This is the one that was recommended by our hotel. Three large pools with progressively hotter temperatures. Two Jacuzzis and waterfalls. We went in the afternoon around 4pm and lounged for several hours and then had "tipico" dinner at 6:30. The cost was just $35 and included the meal. We could have stayed all day at that price. When we... More

Beautiful place with waterfalls. Lots of different areas for kids to swim and play, and quiet adult only pools too.
