A definite must-see for those new to the American Southwest. The private tubs book weeks and weeks in advance, so get scheduled as early as you can. The private tubs also face the Rio Grande, making a moonlit (clothing optional) dip in the naturally toasty water seem like something out of a Tolkien novel. They REALLY appreciate showing up early... More

Fabulous dip in the RIO pool. Highly recommend the private pool because of the outward view, crisp/clean/clear water and relaxing atmosphere. Staff was awesome and excited/proud of the renovations which were absolutely amazing. Lovely, hard working people. I will be back to this place, preferably in the evening when the warm, morning sun is not shining in my face. It... More

It is simple but very clean. The water is wonderful and it has healing properties. We stay in an artist room which was small but it had a very comfortable bed. We like spending the night because we enjoy soaking at night and early in the morning. I highly recommend it if you like a peaceful environment. We love it!

A perfect place for a soak: multiple temperature levels, public and private pools and right on the Rio Grande. Soak up the view as well as the hot springs.

They continue to keep improving the hardscape and now they are adding even more soaking pools! Not kid-friendly anymore though (check website for details). An especially excellent place in the summer when the river is flowing. Day use passes available which is nice for visitors who wish to stay elsewhere or locals who want more than an hour soak. "Alcohol-free"... More

My wife and I have been coming here for years. We love that fact, that every time we visit (usually 4 times a year) there is always some improvement that has been done to the springs. We really enjoy Jake and his staff ( Elizabeth), they make us feel like we are at home. The springs are amazing with such... More

Great accommodations, fantastic hot springs, nice solitude, not too packed with people. Our casita was awesome, but a little weird walk to the main area. Rustic.

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
