Were really looking forward to Baldi. Arrival was chaos and a mad house. I was not aware that Baldi sells "day passes" to hundreds (maybe thousands) of people who come in droves on buses, etc and spend day only at Baldi. There were about 80 people buying day passes when we arrived. Took quite awhile before we found the guest... More

Baldi was beautiful in most respects the first view of this resort was of its many hot springs and the colorful throngs of people streaming forth I really felt it was out of this world ! The staff at the front desk were professional and courteous There were some who seemed a little bored and didn' t want to answer... More

We just spent two nights in Baldi I was really looking forwards to get there but just when we arrived it started being bad. The check in took forever, then we arrived to a smelly room in addition as the time went the entire floor was completely wet. There was a leak not sure where from but all our cloths... More

The area is quite huge with many tourists from US who like to enjoy all amenities and service. The pool area is quite big but the atmosphere gets lost due to its big dimensions and the large number of tourists.

The hot springs are very very nice! They are stunning! But the staff at the hotel are not so friendly as they should be! I would return to the hot springs but the next time I would not stay in the hotel.

We only went for a few hours and that was more than enough. First time in hot springs and I would more than likely go back! The resort was beautiful and it was a huge place. They have 3 slides, which are worth checking out. You go super fast and you just crash into the water. There is someone telling... More

We were on a tight budget as we decided to just rent a car and not pre book hotels. (great way to see Costa Rica by the way). Our budget was $150 US per day for all expenses. This place was $200 a night. I hummed and hawed but then when I was told it included dinner and breakfast and... More

We did not stay at Baldi, but did go for a day trip which included a buffet dinner. We purchased our passes through our hotel (Arenal Observatory Lodge) and they were $40 per person. The pools were clean and lots of fun, even for our very little kids. Two of the three waterslides were closed, but the one that was... More

We came to Baldi only for one night since it was very expensive for us (240$ for night in July). The lady in the reception was not so nice. We asked for a nice romantic room (since we were on our honeymoon) but she didn't even check if this is possible. The pools were beautiful!! Very nice views, we took... More
