We stayed here for one night while traveling through Costa Rica. The facility is much larger than i imagined it would be. We arrived later in the afternoon so we missed the rush of the day-trippers, which I'm assuming was a good thing. We dipped in about half the pools - they are beautifully landscaped and easy to find private... More

Baldi hot springs was a destination to relax and enjoy the hot water. They have hot 3 water slides which adds the fun element. We enjoyed the warm/ hot water for 2-3 Hrs after which we had the slides to rescue. One cannot enjoy the hot water for more than 3 hrs. The lockers and towels are charged additional.. Good... More

This place is over the top! Dozens of pools with various features: caves, waterfalls, swim up bars, water slides, built in longe chairs, gorgeous gardens all around. Very clean and so big that even when it is busy you van still find a peaceful corner to soak in. The water slides are dangerously fast! Be careful, i hurt my neck... More

I took my 13 & 15 year old children to Baldi and they were thrilled. My daughter loves the cold water springs and four waterslides while my son and I love the hot springs.There are about 10 hot pools and along side at least three of them there were the cold pools. My daughter would be in the cold pool... More

A beautiful resort with awesome pools. The water slides are a bit rough though. The lower restaurant was delicious.

We took our three kids here to play on the slides. The changing facilities were average and they charge for towels (bring your own). Slides were fun, but somewhat rough on the old people (mom and dad). Very clean, kids loved it. Recommend late morning or early afternoon to beat crowds.

Really enjoyed my time at this thermal spring, there were numerous hot springs, ranging in temperature depending on how near they were to the volcano. There were changing facilities, lockers and a pool side bar, where you can relax whilst sipping on cocktails.

Highly recommend this experience after some of your physical adventures. We spent days hiking, snorkeling, climbing, repelling, whitewater rafting, zip-lining, etc. What a nice break, it rejuvenated us for more adventures. Baldi has many hot springs of varying temperatures. Beautiful scenery and swim up bars. We thought the pricing was fair compared to other springs,although the drinks are a bit... More

Baldi Hot Springs has three of the most amazing concrete water slides. They are not for the faint at heart. The fast one is very fast. Could only do it once scary! They will beat you up and spit you out. In the second slowest one or second fastest I was upside down when it spit me out into the... More
