A week at the Tabacon will re-charge your batteries. There's a ton of resorts in Arenal & La Fortuna, but this was Top Class all the way. The service was heads and tails the best I've ever had. Little things like setting the table in our room when we ordered room service, checking in at 5 to see if we... More

The junior suite was all in white, had a huge jacuzzi bath, beautiful views into the jungle, huge TV, white sofas... While the Senator Suite was pretty much a... More

This resort is truly "world class" in every aspect, from the friendly, professional service to the beautiful rooms and the tropical, lush property that just speaks volumes to the pride of ownership here. No question or request goes unanswered and the sincere friendliness is almost astounding to me as a somewhat jaded North American. Why is everyone smiling and being... More

The hotel lobby is open and inviting, complimentary drink as you enter and a quick and efficient check-in and it only gets better from here. The staff is pleasant and very accommodating. Any request is dealt with immediately. As guests at Tabacon we had access to "Shangri-La" at the hot springs. First of all these are the best springs in... More

Recently completed my fourth trip to this resort spa. It is a top tier hotel in a remote and scenic part of Costa Rica. The service, staff, amenities, activities and food are outstanding. Every time I leave there I always hope that a return is in the near future.
