A bit cheesy, but a great place to go and relax. We went there with a voucher from our lodge (35 dollar pp incl dinner). The pools are great, the place is huge and the food is good. If you want a free pool, just drive to Tabacon from La Fortuna, drive past the entrance for 20 meters and park... More

This trip was organized for us through Desafio as a package deal with dinner & hotsprings. There are over 20 different hot springs to choose from with varying temperatures. There are lockers to rent and they provide towels for a refundable deposit. It was a quiet night and not very busy. A nice night to relax in a hot spring.... More

We stopped at the Baldi Hot Springs after a day of kayaking at Lake Arenal and how lucky we were. This place is amazing! There is a reatuarant, many, many swim up bars (also some walk up with stools) and so many fun, cool, different hot spring baths. We walked all the way up to the hotel from the entrance... More

Overdeveloped, over rated, and over priced. Had been expecting something more in keeping with the natural beauty of the area, not concrete and steel. However, the food was exceptional.

We spent the whole evening here, with a full buffet dinner included. Food was great and plentiful with a chocolate fountain, strawberries, marshmallows and even more chocolate. After this we spent the evening swimming around in the hot pools which ranged in temperature from the 20s to the 50s. Crazy temperatures. But surely the highlight was the 3 water slide,... More

Waterpark that's fun for adults (and kids) is how one of the locals described it to us. There are about a dozen huge hot spring pools with different themes, from sports bar or club atmosphere to relaxing caves and water slides. Lot's of options for any atmosphere you want - private or social. Great way to spend an evening, but... More

We spent the evening at Baldi Hot Springs and enjoyed the pools, slides and the dinner. This is a great way to spend and evening and if you have teenagers they will really enjoy the slides! The food is high quality and the dining area is a very nice place to have dinner.

This facility has numerous hot spring pools, from cool to quite hot. It was very busy, but none of the pools appeared to be crowded. Change rooms were very clean and you could request and number of towels for exchange.
