“Beautiful, relaxing, dog friendly too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

To sit in the beautiful hot springs and gaze at the river was a delight. It would be nice if the weather was cooler but it was still lovely. In the a.m., Ben even came out with a coffee pot to refresh ours. We stayed in the trailer and it was clean and all we needed as we cooked our own meal to hang with our pups.

This place is a little slice of paradise...great place to go and unwind.....quiet....clean. The hot springs are fantastic! crystal clear, low sulphur . Setting is just beautiful. Everything is focused on providing guest with a quiet peaceful stay. Went for an early morning soak and the young man working the office even brought fresh coffee out for everyone. You can tell the staff take pride in providing superior service to their guests

Room Tip: when we went the only rooms available were the small rooms ( think they call them the artist rooms...

This was our third trip to Riverbend in 3 years. We keep pics of it on our phone to keep us reminded of heaven. If you really want to unwind and relax you can do so in the crystal clear hot mineral springs at Riverbend. They are ultimate in providing a superior, clean, quite ,beautiful place for you to be comfortable and safe and relax. They surprised us this year by bringing tea or coffee poolside. The private pools are just that and perfect. Looking over the Rio Grand and up Turtleback Mountain watching the full moon come up was more than heavenly, and enjoying all the wild critters you see drinking and eating from the river. The rooms are CLEAN and comfortable. What a way to vacation.

Room Tip: Tell them what you need and they can help you. There are kitchens available in some rooms. It is nic...

A beautiful oasis to relax and rejuvenite mentally and physically. The pools, the decor, the evening lighting, the adjacent river, the well appointed rooms, the quirky town, and choice of restaurants all contributed to the experience.....Coffee was provided poolside in the morning...what a nice surprise.....

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Riverbend over the weekend and it couldn't have been more wonderful.

We had planned a very pampered weekend and began with our free (for booking two nights) private tub overlooking the Rio Grande and were blessed with a great blue heron sighting. Later that afternoon while soaking in the gorgeous public tubs we watched a solitary crane fishing for about an hour in blissful quiet.

I had amazing yoga practices on the deck right on the river each morning and the last morning was graced by what was later identified as an osprey fishing and preening while perched just across the river. The wildlife is amazing - also saw a snowy egret, swallows, fly catchers, myriad ducks and countless other unidentified but much adored birds.

The water is UH-mazing and melted away months of small and large tensions stored in the nooks and crannies of our bodies. In the mornings, they even bring you fresh ground coffee right to your tub!

We had a Courtyard Suite and planned several amazing meals which we were able to prepare on the grill right outside our door. The room was perfect and we lounged with a celebratory toast in the covered courtyard in the afternoon.

We were even able to bring our beloved dog friend (it's a little extra, but totally worth it, and less than paying for someone else to watch him while we're gone). He lounged in a pet cabana under what I think are the largest bamboo I've ever seen, fully in sight of us while soaking.

We met several interesting couples and had wonderful, quiet conversation.

The perfect blend of social and solitary, quiet and luxurious, natural and cultured. Thank you!

My husband and I chose Riverbend based on a friend's recommendation. We stayed in the casita and really enjoyed the amenities there and at the bath-house. The owners and staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. The baths were outstanding - we really enjoyed using the private baths. Being outdoors with the beautiful view of the mountain was spectacular. It is obvious the owners are constantly trying to upgrade and improve the facility. I would highly recommend staying here!!! We will be back!
