If Eve hadn't eaten that apple, Tabacon Hot Springs is what the world would look like and Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort is where God would put up guests from out of town. When you first arrive and enter the tropical feeling open air lobby you are handed a cold towel for your refreshment and an icy drink in a stemmed glass, and this is the point where you hear the first strum on angels' harps. By some miraculous fluke, we ended up in a King Tabacon Suite -- our luggage delivered to the door by cart -- and when the floor-to-ceiling drapes were pulled aside and we could look across the jungle to see the full frontal view of Arenal, the heavenly choirs began to sing. The room itself was magnificent. It was enormous with soaring ceilings and an unobstructed view of jungle and Volcano. Several times during the night I got up just to watch the moonlight on the shifting jungle mists and on Arenal. It was unforgettable. The four poster bed with curtains is most comfortable and has the whole angel-down works: pillows, comforter and heavenly soft sheets and duvet. Robes. Spa slippers. Luxury amenities. Handsome wooden boxes, one of tea selections and the other of coffees. Couch, huge TV, work desk, dining table and chairs, and enough space to accommodate all of this without crowding. Ah! and the bathroom? There was a tub large enough for a birthday party with a "rainforest" shower head and windows that opened wide to jungle views. Don't ask how this was private, but it was. A TV in the bathroom, for heaven's sake. For the tech demons among us, theTV came with BlueRay, and BlueTooth. There was a laptop computer on the desk and a great internet connection.....so if you really, really had to maintain contact back down on earth, you could. In the evening, turn down service also includes a refill of your ice bucket, slippers appear bedside, and of course, what would heaven be without that piece of chocolate? Service throughout the resort was so accommodating that If it would have made us happy to have the staff jump back flips, I believe they would have. When we first arrived at our room, we found a beautiful cake on the dining table wishing us a happy anniversary -- our 47th. How great is that? The pool was being renovated but it was the hot springs we were most interested in. It is a short (6 minutes), pleasant walk away on a paved garden path that parallels the highway but feels tropical and a nice experience in itself. The hotel will shuttle you but I preferred the walk.. At night, the path is lighted and makes a nice little stroll after a day spent at the springs. I peeped into the standard rooms and found them to be more similar to a standard hotel room, although they were handsomely furnished and had full length jungle views out the window at the end of the room. If cost is an issue, consider that the room price includes a day pass to the springs and for two people, that would be $120 per day so you can mentally knock that off the price of the room and what remains is certainly not unreasonable. The restaurant deserves a review of its own, as does the Springs complex, so look for these on TripAdvisor as well.
