We visited the hot springs and the restaurant for an evening, not the hotel. Great evening of good food and water fun with our family (3 kids ages 13-21). Very enjoyable and relaxing. The sauna cave was a favorite for all of us, and the water slides were a blast! The buffet was amazing! Definitely something to come back to.

My wife and I decided to stay here for a romantic weekend together during the offseason. It was a lovely place within close proximity to San Carlos and with beautiful views. We were most impressed with their well kept and beautifully arranged gardens. The room was very nice and we felt like it was an overall great value and have... More

There needs to be more signs next to every single pool that states how hot they are. Actually there are some small corner pools that are so hot you could make soup. In the sports bar pool with the changing lights there is a pool in the corner that is so hot you could die if you stayed in for... More

We didn't rent a room here. My wife Xander I bought day passes for the hot springs and dinner. Dinner consists of a buffet and wasn't worth the extra $20 per person in my opinion. The hot springs very in temperature and there are a bunch of them. They are shallow enough for the kids and there are water slides.... More

After zip-lining in the morning and then hiking Arenal volcano, we went to this resort for dinner and hot springs relaxation. The buffet was very nice, with many choices. Since it was my husband's birthday, they made a special cake with candles just for him and sang happy birthday to him. The soak pools were amazing, not even sure we... More

The spa is less than a 10 minute drive from Fortuna, should you not wish to stay at the actual resort. We came on a weekday evening, as the spa is open to the public until 10 PM. We bought discounted tickets at our hotel in Fortuna and for $35 USD, we had admission to the spa as well as... More

While visiting Arenal, we went to these hot springs in addition to those at Paradise. While Paradise was pretty peaceful and small, Baldi was the opposite. Baldi apparently has over twenty pools and water slides. There was also a cool sauna area. It was much more crowded then Paradise, and the drinks were much more expensive. We also had dinner... More

In the La Fortuna area, it is hard to decide which springs location is best. My husband and I stayed at Volcano lodge and Springs and took a taxi to Baldi for some evening entertainment. We paid for a buffet meal and swim in the springs. The meal was good--lots of choices and desserts. The springs were less crowded than... More

We stayed at this hotel in early June as a group of friends. We had a great time enjoying the water springs and moving from one pool to the other and had a blast on the water slides. The spa was an ok experience as the fact that the room is in an open space took away from the privacy... More

Very nice place to stay, quiet ,peaceful and serene. The gardens are beautiful. Great place for kids as there are two water slides. Food and service was good at the restaurant. Room was very nice. Only drawback was they were working on two of the hot pools while we were there.
