The facilities are BEAUTIFUL! It is nestled in the middle of nature and surprisingly little to no bug bites while staying here. The staff was friendly and delivered a free dessert for us as it was our wedding anniversary. We appreciated the care and attention to details (laying out the slippers, chocolate on the pillows, etc.) and we expected nothing... More

We stayed at Tabacon for four nights just two weeks ago and loved it! From the moment we walked into the lobby we were pampered. Check-in was a breeze and they gave us a nice complimentary welcome drink within minutes. We upgraded to suite #604 which was clean, spacious and modern, although a bit sparse on furnishings. We had a... More

Very nice place. Had a day package where we spent a day at the Springs with lunch and Supper included. It was fantastic. September is the off season so we had the place to ourselves. The design is such that you can choose from a large variety of secluded pools. These are fed from volcanic springs and have varying degrees... More

We stayed here 6 nights to celebrate our 40th anniversary. Got a great off season rate, and were upgraded to a corner, ground level honeymoon suite with a view of lush gardens and Arenal through expansive patio doors- the nicest hotel we have stayed in! The staff is extremely helpful and courteous. I tipped them on arrival for the luggage,... More

Overall a nice hotel, have to take a 2 minute shuttle to the springs. The springs are truly fantastic, though they do get crowded after 6 pm as the people on day passes come in. Restaurant prices are a bit steep. $120 for lunch for two adults two kids. Service fairly slow at the pool bar. Still a very nice... More

We visited Tabacon only for hot springs as we were staying at a hotel nearby. Tabacon springs are undoubtedly beautiful, a fantastic mixture of natural and crafted pools make this a very enjoyable experience. We went for the evening session that included a buffet dinner, the food was good, typical Costa Rican cuisine with loads on offer. The waiters in... More

So first off the hot springs are amazing and a beautiful place to unwind. If you stay at the Tabacon resort it is included in your room rate. We stayed for 2 nights with 2 teen aged children. The people that work there are friendly and run to you to help you but they all expect a tip for doing... More

I always love going to Tabacon. For me and the girlfriend it is a yearly event to enjoy the hotsprings. I think we visited the hotspring 3 times while we were there. This is the 1st time I remember it being clear enough to see Volcano Arnol - great hotel service and location.

The hotel is nice, but the real attraction is the proximity to the Tabacon Hot Springs. A welcome drink kicks off an air of relaxation as soon as you check-in, which helps any vacation. The hotel is quite pricy for other options in the area. When it comes to visiting this area, enjoy the activities and Springs and the hotels... More
