this place is heaven tucked away against the banks of the Rio Grande. From the staff to accomodations you are really under paying for your stay. Trust me this is a must do bucket list item that once you complete you will regularly keep adding back on to the list

My family and I stopped at Riverbend for an hour soak before heading down to Las Cruces. This place has one of the best customer service, clean and very romantic ambient. The staff was very helpful and very welcoming, answered all of our questions and made recommendation based on our needs. There are multiple public pools that you can soak... More

After driving around Truth or Consequences and looking at the other hot springs it was obvious that I definitely picked the right hot springs. Swimsuits are required at this facility and the charge was $10 for an hour to use the hot springs. What made this place so special was the view of the Rio Grande River. There were also... More

Clean but kinda funky in the coolest possible way. Peaceful, clean, and beautifully maintained. The water was hot and the pools kept spotless by a quiet, determined staff. The property faces out to the Rio Grande and Turtleback Mountain, with panoramic views. Rent a private pool - these are clothing optional - and soak it all in. I loved every... More

I read the slightly snippy review by the lady from RI who rated this great place 2 stars. It seems to bother her that she was asked to " whisper " in the communal tub. Which is indeed the policy. And a good one. I don't go there to listen to your conversation. Sorry. And why can't it keep till... More

Loved the outdoor pools with the beautiful vegetation. The amenities were so much more than I expected. Staff was every courteous and helpful and the room met all our needs and then some. Will definitely be coming back.

The best $15 you'll ever spend! The staff here is super helpful and friendly. We reserved a private spa overlooking the Rio Grande. So quiet and peaceful while enjoying our own private hot springs spa for 50 minutes... $15 a person. Well worth the time and money and you'll leave there feeling wonderful. Can't wait to go back!

Love, love, love the hot springs at Riverbend. These natural hot springs are great for relaxing, plus they help with sunburns and are rumored to help arthritis, if you can go on a regular basis. The staff here was super friendly and the ambiance was perfect. A must try if you are in the area.

Wonderful place to visit and relax. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The carp at the bottom of the dock crowd around to catch birdseed falling from the feeder. The only "downer" is that guests don't follow the "whisper zone" rules. When relaxing in the pools, the area is supposed to be "whisper" only.....during my evening there, two men were... More

Riverbend Hot Springs is the second hot springs in T or C that I have visited. I enjoyed both places for different reasons. Riverbend has ambiance DAY & NIGHT. I absolutely love the grounds here, a beautiful place to hangout whether you were soaking in the hot springs or just relaxing between soaks. The views are quite lovely no matter... More
