Stayed here after a day of touring and zip lining. There are two hot springs areas with the temperature of the water at various levels. There is a nice bar area at one of the pools with very attentive staff and reasonably priced drinks.

Good for couples. It was very empty. We went there around 1 pm and were actually the only ones for two hours. The bar of the pool is a bit expensive.

We loved our experience at the hot springs! It was so relaxing. Loved all the different pools and beautiful surroundings. They had nice locker rooms and provided towels. Definitely a highlight of our trip and enjoyed it after a busy day hiking.

Yes, of course. They even place swan folded towels on the bed. We stayed in the cabins. I recommend the larger ones, although the smaller cabins looked great as well.
