Attraction Details
Owner description: The family owned and operated natural hot springs, which allow only a limited number of guests each day, provide a private, relaxing oasis during your vacation.There are five pools, one with a cascading waterfall, which reach up to 108 degrees Fahrenheit. There is no better way to unwind after a long day than by visiting the hot springs and treating your body to its naturally replenishing effects. When taking a break from the soothing hot springs, you can dine in the authentic, home-style Costa Rican restaurant.

“Fun”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

We were there at night which probably made it more fun. You have a number of pools and waterfalls at different temperatures and you move from one to the next until you have had enough. You can get out from time to time and have a drink. You can also have a meal which is booked for a fixed time and put on the table at that time whether you are there or not so better be on time if you like hot food. There is no choice of menu and the food is not particularly good so the only point of going there is for the hot springs.

“We came at night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

It rained every day while we were at Volcan Arenal. This is one of the activities we really enjoyed. After a full day, we decided to come here to have dinner and enjoy the natural springs. I don't know what it looks like during the day, but it was stunning at night. And of course, the hot springs were fabulous. So relaxing!

“Thermal hot springs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

They have set times that you can stay in the resort, we opted for the evening 5-9pm. It cost us about $34 for the both of us. They supply towels and have plenty of sun loungers and a bar for you to relax.

The only issue I found was that once dark you could not really see under the water so missed my stepping a couple of times.

“A nice way to spend an evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

We had the meal option. We discovered that we probably had allowed too much time for relaxing in the springs and we went to our table a bit earlier - the accommodated us, no problem. The springs are very relaxing, varying in temperatures. Drinks are good and reasonably priced. You get a towel and a locker upon arrival. Meal was very tasty. A lovely way to spend an evening.

“Expected more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

I came in expecting more pools. Found it very small with bus loads of people to contend with. Not much to do. Didn't feel a big difference in the temperatures of the pools. It doesn't look natural like I heard some of the other springs in the area are. I didn't like how it felt like I was just in a basic pool. I would try elsewhere next time.
