I highly recommend Tabacon. It was comfortable, near the Arenal volcano and great bird watching. The staff was very friendly and helpful at every turn. A plus for the vacation was free access to the thermal river.

Dear valued guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Tabacon with us. We are glad to read you had a great time taking advantage of our hot springs and location. At the same time, it's wonderful to know you enjoyed all our facilities and services. However, we are sorry to read we didn't exceed your expectations regarding to your visit. According to the topic you mention, we took on the task of following up with our team. Our executives do not take robes that are in the resort, because they can belong to guests who are enjoying our hot springs. We regret the incident you mentioned, this is an unusual case in our hotel and we would like you to tell us about the objects that you lost and that you had inside your robe so that we can corroborate that these are not within our report of lost and found objects. You can write us at customerservice@tabacon.com We appreciate your valuable comment and we hope to have the opportunity to improve your experience with us in the near future. Sincerely, Marcel Stittner General Manager
