on our visit most of the spa was closed off for works or just not on. we were not told this when booking and were not offered any discount upon arrival. Bar staff were particularly rude and unhelpful at the pool.

I have to be honest and mention that I tried Tabacon Hot Springs on a previous trip so these ones in comparison fell short. There is a huge price difference also (this one is like 4 times cheaper) but it was part of a package...More

After a long day of hiking we soaked our muscles here, had a few drinks, and enjoyed a delicious dinner. I would highly recommend this place. There are two large hot springs and various smaller ones throughout and it is very nice and clean.
