We loved our stay at Tabacon Grand Spa and Thermal Resort:
pro- The service here was impeccable. The hotel staff seemed happy to be there and went out of their way to be ambassadors for Costa Rica. Each person was a mini tour guide and shared their enthusiasm for the country, flora, fauna and Tabacon. This really made our stay pleasurable.
The room service burgers were excellent!! Highly recommend.
con- there was no outdoor space for the rooms. It would have been nice to sit out on a little patio or balcony to enjoy the views. Secondly, there was no comfortable seating in the rooms. There was plenty of space for a sofa or loveseat facing the garden windows in our space.
Would be nice to have cheaper food options. Took a cab to La Fortuna for $38 US dollars for mediocre food at Nene's.
PRO- loved everything about this place. It is magical and beautiful and my skin felt great for days afterwards. Loved the Shangri La area for hotel guests. It was romantic and we spent most of our time there. The lockers and shower areas were very clean. It felt like an exclusive club.
