Its been a while since I have been able to write anything, but I wanted to write about my experience here. I honestly recommend anyone looking for a place to escape and relax to go here. Not only do they have breath-taking views, the natural hotspring pools are amazing and great staff. This was the thing that really stood out and enjoyed the most, the service and hospitality from all who work there give the place a very warm, pleasant and welcoming atmosphere. Not only are you greeted from the moment you arrive, but everyone and I mean everyone who works there is amazingly friendly. I recommend this place for its hospitality and great enviorment.

I recently went here with a few friends. It was such a beautiful drive (we went to Irazu Volcano in the morning). When we arrived, we were the only ones there. The entire place is gorgeous. The atmosphere is so beautiful and the view breathtaking. There are 4 different pools to soak in. We had lunch and drinks and enjoyed the natural hot springs. It was so peaceful. There are towels on site...all you need to bring is your bathing suit. Highly recommend it.

The Good: Property alone is quite frankly breathtaking. It accomplishes everything you want in this type of space which is stunning landscape, beautiful hiking trails, nature, coffee farm, volcanic scenery and rural feel - all meant to relax you and provide you a luxurious SPA feel. The grounds are upkept to a degree that i’ve only seen in extremely high end hotels. Staff is attentive, genuine, nice and LOCAL. (I can’t stress enough how important this is). The food is very local / typical dishes but executed perfectly well - feels elevated; from specialty coffee (produced in situ) to snacks or meals, served in colorful typical ceramic or metal cups... this connection to me is key in making it memorable for locals and tourists alike. Security cameras, gated entry, staff is always near to help you. I would definitely compliment the new management because you never once loose the connection to our CostaRican culture or get “a Balinese feel” or a “international feel” that so often invades our spas or recreation spots ... NOT HERE! you are 100% feeling, sensing, looking and eating Costa Rica at its best. The “Bad”: It can be quite expensive for locals so you won’t see many of us around... Albeit the place is worth every penny - don’t get me wrong) it is most definitely in the “Premium $$$$$” side of the Costa Rica experience. I understand this may help keep the place exclusive, But it had to be noted... Final verdict: Is a place you can go to all year round; is clean and modern and tastefully decorated. Is great for couples and families, but you can also go solo. The easiest way to get there is driving yourself; but you can also take a tour, i’m unsure about public transport and wouldn’t reccomend. If you’re on a budget but still want to treat yourself GO - is worth it but just be warned you won’t spend less than $100 usd per day per person if you stay the whole day and eat and drink onsite. If budget is not q concern... why are you still reading? Just GO! You will thank me later :)

We, a family of 4 with 2 teenage kids, were in two minds whether to go to the springs or not after having seen a negative review. We went anyway and we are glad. This is natural hot springs with 5 pools each with a different temperature with amazing views of the orosi valley. We spent the whole day relaxing in the pool soaking the great surroundings. Food was great and the chef made us a special vegetarian meal when he knew we were vegetarian. Do not miss this great experience.

First the good - Nice pools, immaculately clean & each pool a different temperature starting from very hot to cool, civilised restaurant area, super clean changing rooms, & a military style sun lounger area beside, so no issues there. Now the bad & I speak as a Costa Rica resident of 10 years knowing a thing or 2 about the country & how they love to 'rip off' particularly us tourists, many reviews appear written by (sorry) naive tourists, spending a week or 2 on a tour here with little real idea about the country - This place is very expensive, in terms of the entry fee @ $45 each & unlikely you will be going alone, so circa $100 for a couple to purely sit in thermal waters. Good value? I think not. In fairness & to try to be balanced, this is not disguised but circa $100 for a couple to purely sit in thermal waters is steep in the extreme. Restaurant prices too, excessive, nothing much under $15 & In comparison to other thermal waters in the country, I have been to better for about 20% of the price in a more pleasant environments with nature abounding. Next the views, I read people 'swooning' over the 'fantastic views' to which I genuinely looked forward, dreams soon shattered. I don't get any of the 'view' comments I have read at all. The view is albeit expansive maybe 10 miles or so distant & if deforested cattle fields & ugly small towns & a nearby hideous power station are your thing then great! I personally regard a good view as unadulterated nature. Go to a high rise hotel in Escazu or San Jose if you just want to see a long way much of the ugly CR architecture. Super friendly staff? Hmmmm... You cannot expect English to be spoken here I know but nice if a tourist attraction offered at least 1 person that spoke a word or 2, not here & the super friendly comments? (Pardon me while another rib cracks). I would say surly (the typical don't really like non Spanish speaking tourists mentality which afflicts a large number of Tico's here, happy to take your money of course but that's it) certainly not super friendly I can promise you, although the best was an old timer helping with parking & lockers. Lady appearing to be the manager/security taking the money not remotely friendly. Getting there as most will do involves the horrible drive between San Jose & Cartago which is arguably the ugliest part of the country & often a traffic jam ridden nightmare, very urban, the opposite to what most people come here for & then the tortuous route around the back of Cartago to contend with which is also a pain, with Waze sending you left & then right every 200 meters or so due to the ill thought out one way systems that dominate in Costa Rica. Do not attempt without Waze or similar app, you will never find it. So hate to sound negative, but I like to have expectations met or exceeded & this was not the case here & finally if despite my review you still fancy going, the sun here will catch you out, we went on a day of broken cloud & the sun burn we suffered was serious & never felt a thing till we got home looking like tomatoes.
