We stayed at a suite that was huge . It was good for easily 4 adults . Food and drinks were first class . Tasteful interiors and homey feeling , friend and gracious service team. And the Hot spring and Spa was just out of this world Very Highly recomended
Highly recommend this. True paradise experience. The hot springs and variation of the pools was perfect. It is on the higher end as far as budget but I feel they really deliver on a good value for the investment.
We had the Senator room. It was amazing. Hotel couldn’t have been better. I loved the private area of the hot springs. For hotel guests only. The breakfast buffet was a wonderful addition to the day, awesome food.
The gardens and hot springs are beautiful and magical. If you are looking for a place to relax and be taken care of look no further. The spa experience, a couples massage was fabulous and the food excellent. The service was also top notch and I can’t recommend this hotel enough. It does not disappoint!
One of the most beautiful and enjoyable vacation experiences we have ever had! Definite for anybody who enjoys nature and beautiful landscapes! I would say the experience of the hot springs and Costa Rican culture was 5 Stars!
This was certainly not the caliber of service or property we expected for the price. Our trip came about because of an immigration issue requiring us to be on the ground longer than originally planned. We usually stay a week at the 4Seasons Papagayo and seldom venture out. Having added the additional nights and not wanting to only experience the beach for the entirety of our trip, we researched various luxury properties in the mountains. We ultimately selected Tabacon and Rio Perdido. It was a blessing to experience this property. Tabacon clicks all the boxes...great and very unique location, exceptionally talented and welcoming staff, great food (in truth, once we found "the spot", we stuck to it: the lobby bar is a great place for lunch and dinner as most everyone else goes to the larger locations and therefor you get the talented teams full attention and accommodation. Our favorite items were filet with one of the most amazing chimichurris of our lives, chicken Caesar salad with yet again, one of the best dressing recipes of our lives)...back to the greats...great rooms - we were upgrade to room 601 which was a suite - that have great techn like USB ports, Lutron lighting controls, and spacious bathrooms (admittedly the bathroom layout is so spacious that you end up with some awkward issues like the WC) but that was a tiny issue in my view consider everything else that was just superb. Oh, expect nature to join you whenever possible, be it stick bugs and colorful moths parked on your deck screens, lively and colorful birds on your walk to breakfast, and very funny looking and acting lizards at the pool bar. We will be adding this to our yearly trip to Costa Rica. Pura Vida! …
The hot springs setting is truly a tropical splendor featuring about 25 pools of varying temperatures for your pleasure. The pools feature waterfalls and are set amongst the most amazing tropical gardens displaying palms, orchids, anthurium and other tropical blooms, bromeliads and foliage representing every shade of green you can imagine. Lockers, first class dressing rooms and towels are provided. There is a swim up bar serving tantalizing cocktails and beer. The resort offers shuttle service to and from the hot springs and we never had to wait more than 5 min. The resort rooms are impeccable offering every luxury. Troop rate includes entrance to the hot springs and a magnificent breakfast buffet boasting a grand array of offerings. The staff is professional and friendly.
Lightning struck and thunder rolled, face buried in a towel as the massage therapist melted the knot buried inside my left spina scapulae with the slightly less than boiling hot stone. Sitting in the puddle of relaxed bliss from the massage while sipping on our 2nd round of coconut filled mixed adult beverages in Arenal Volcano hot spring heated thermal pool. Experience Pura Vida at Tabacon as we did.
Perfect in every way! Very accommodating and beautiful resort. The breakfast food was our favorite, we loved the staff here and felt very welcome. I would recommend this resort and we will be going back when we visit Costa Rica.
Loved everything, will definitely be back. Spa was a dream, got a massage in the middle of the rain forest. Bartenders created magical drinks. The adults only area at the Shangri La was amazing. Food was tasty especially the complimentary breakfast. Staff wad very friendly and helpful. Overall an amazing vacation.
