We spent one night in the Arenal area on our vacation, and it was highly recommended that we stay here. I'm glad we did, the place was beautiful and the hot springs at Tabacon we indescribable! I would highly recommend it for at least one night.
Our room at the resort was a bit of a disappointment since this is supposed to be one of the leading hotels in the world. The bathroom was poorly cleaned and it certainly lacked luxury.
The breakfast buffet more than made up for it though.... It was amazing! The food was delicious and there was a lot of variety.
It would probably be worth paying to spend a day at the hot springs and stay elsewhere.
