4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We only stayed here one night and arrived quite late, so I never really got to see the hotel during the day - but the ambiance at night was lovely. There are tons of hot springs of differing temperatures, as well as slides and saunas. The restaurant on site was pretty good as well. I would definitely recommend it.

We visited Baldi after a walk in the pelting rain by the Arenal volcano. The hot springs were perfect to warm us up since we were freezing after sittingin a bus with our soaking wet clothes. the water slides at the top were a lot of fun if not somewhat scarey- out teenage boys loved them, however they are not...

We paid $325 for one night at Baldi. The rooms were great, the spas were cool and the slides were fun. But, the customer service completely ruined our experience. We checked in, only to find out that the dinner they'd told us over the phone was included with our booking didn't get added to our confirmation, so they refused to... More

I have never seen anything like this in my life, it was amazing, a huge collection of clean beautiful relaxing springs/pools/gardens. I did not stay in the hotel however I got to go to the springs and stay for THE BEST DINNER I had so far in Costa Rica,it was 10 stars

I almost never write negative reviews. If I have a bad experience, I usually just don't write one at all. But I make exceptions for places I feel really disappoint. We only went to the hot springs, did not stay in the hotel. The pools themselves were nice and pretty at night. HOWEVER, it is very expensive and the dinner... More

The Baldi Hot Springs were to die for! So relaxing and fun at the same time. There were over 20+ pools to relax in, ranging from all different temperatures. Some pools even had slides as well. Once done swimming enjoy a lovely dinner in the tree tops

I chaperoned a high school soccer team on their trip to Costa Rica and we went here one evening to let the boys loose in the water park. It really was like something from another planet. The other chaperones and I had a great time with them and really enjoyed it. We were there for dinner and at at one... More

I just paid over $200 for a "SUITE" in this joke of a hotel. The hot springs are ok, but the "JR SUITE" is nothing more than a dated, mold/mildew smelling average hotel room. On top of that, I am sitting at the front desk right now trying to get them to take responsibility and they refuse. This is low... More

We stayed here on a tour for part of our honeymoon. The hotel paid no regard to this. The pools in the VIP area are the closet to thermal hot springs however the rest are glorified pools. The resturant was good food however extremely pricey. My main reason for leaving a bad review was truly the smell of mold in... More
