My husband and I stayed at the Tabacon resort for one night in March. We got a deal on bookit.com for $220. Considering access to the hot springs is $65 pp and we were going to visit their hot springs regardless, it was an incredible price to stay the night with unlimited access to hot springs.
HOTEL - Room was more than expected, very clean, house coats were the best I've ever had, very spacious, huge bathroom
RESTAURANT - Open air restaurant, service and food were 5 star. I had the fish, my husband the steak. On the expensive side though (expected)
HOT SPRINGS - Absolutely gorgeous. They even had a man made warm pool with slide and swim up bar. Was easy to charge our drinks to our room bill from here. We used the springs at night (closed at 10pm) and in the morning, felt like we had the area to ourselves despite it being high season in Costa Rica. I'm sure this is different between 10am-6pm when tour buses visit.
RESORT- Nicely laid out, easy to get around, very clean. Beautifully landscaped, plenty of open sunchairs around the pool, english speaking, great customer service and feel. The staff are at your disposal. Easy to get to, no dirt roads
Didnt use the spa since we only stayed one night, walked past it, looked just like it does in the photos
