For anyone considering visiting Costa Rica, you absolutely owe to yourself to visit Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort in La Fortuna de San Carlos. We live with a little bit of hope and with a little bit of certainty and you certainly can do it, but do it now! There are several hot springs, the most popular being Tabacon Grand... More

We stayed at the Tabacon in Sept with another couple. We had an incredible stay. Immediately when we arrived we were greeted with drinks. Check-in was quick and easy. Our rooms were beautiful. We had deluxe rooms with whirlpool tubes, large showers, and comfortable beds. Our rooms were off separate from most others which made it extra peaceful. The hot... More

I had an excellent experience at this resort. We were so active for the two days that we had no problems falling asleep in that lovely bed. They were very comfortable and the room service was great. Everything was well kept and clean. Our dinners were spectacular with the chef treating us like royalty. I loved the location of the... More

I definetely recommend this hotel and resort to anybody visiting Costa Rica. My parents came all the way from Asia to see their grandchildren, and my wife and I, with the strong recommendation of my 8-year-old boy and 5-year-year old girl, decided to bring them to this beautiful resort for three days. We've lived here for a year, and visited... More

I normally would never stay in a place this nice, except I found a deal where I got my rooms for half off. I really felt like I was in the lap of luxury. Right when I entered the hotel, I was greeted with a melon smoothie. All of staff spoke English and the rooms were HUGE! The highllght of... More

In my honest opinion, this hotel is worth stay at to avoid the day pass to the springs. With that said, more than 2 nights at this hotel is not wise. We stayed at the Tabacon Resort for 3 nights, and upon first impression, we were impressed with the hotel, the room, and the springs. Do not get me wrong,... More

Spent several days in August at Tabacon Grand Spa with my girlfriend--wow what an experience. I found the staff to be very friendly and attentive, room was comfortable and food was good. But the hot springs--incredible. I visited each of the many pools, all at different temperatures. I ended up "camping out" under a waterfall where 103 degree water pounded... More

We were at the Tabacon for our honeymoon and were not incredibly thrilled with the hotel itself. It doesn't possess any particular charm or personality and it seems to want to charge, or overcharge you for everything. The restaurants are crazy overpriced, even by U.S. standards and feel impersonal. The one good thing about staying at the hotel is that... More

I cannot say enough Good things about Tabacon! My husband and I chose to stay there based on a recommendation from a friend who is from Costa Rica. We were treated like guests of honor from the moment we were picked up at the airport until the moment we left! We stayed in one of the less expensive rooms, forest... More
