Reading reviews we must be in the wrong place, hotel is a series of car parks with motel like blocks. Room 403 is tired and shabby with huge empty space by window looking onto dense planted border, no view whatsoever. You have to squeeze between large 4X4s to even get to your room.
The spa and springs are a shuttle ride away or a 15 minute walk down a main road, thermal waters are ok but all a bit contrived, not natural in the least, lushly planted with no view of Arenal until back on the main road. Very disappointing would not advise staying here, Baldi hot springs far superior in every way.
