Fantastic way to spend half a day; beautiful thermal spa pools, waterfalls and landscaping with a variety of places to relax both in and out of the water. The thermal pools are more extensive than it initially appears, with several paths to explore and pools to discover! Additionally, there is a reasonable sized swimming pool with a swim up bar...

The grounds are gorgeous and the wildlife is plentiful. One night after a long day of hiking and exploring my family and I got room service. The food was... More

My wife and I visited for our honeymoon. Not only was the staff incredible, the hotel and spa grounds were beautiful. The hot springs that run through the spa are extremely relaxing and no one will bother you if you find a spot you like. Highly recommended if you are looking for a spot to honeymoon or for romance.

We loved our stay here at Tabacon. The room was nice and the hot springs were crazy good. We stayed here with kids ages 6 and 8 and we all had an amazing experience. The swimming pool with the swim up bar was a hit. It was heated and chlorine free! It rains a lot here so the heated pool... More

Enjoyed 2 night stay February 2015 in Large Suite near lobby and fitness center. Outstanding service and location. Expansive room was among top 10 we have ever stayed in. Fitness center contains 2 modern treadmills, dumbbells, and Life Fitness/Universal multi station. Buffet breakfast & dinner at Toucan Restaurant were consistently good. Highlight of this properly is complementary shuttle and access... More

The hotel was nice with a good clean room and good service. I've read other reviews complaining of the service during the same period we were there and I thought the service was very good with a friendly courteous staff. While the hotel was very nice the real attraction here are thermal springs which are spectacular with incredible landscaping and... More

Recently stayed at TABACON RESORT which is one of the nicer hotels in the LA FORTUNA area if not the nicest.....and is a great bargain considering the room rate includes the entrance fee to the TABACON SPA and SPRINGS which are really nice and is about $50 a person per day ... The hotel is really nice and our family... More
