We found Joyful Journey to be a complete delight in every aspect. It is a funky little resort but the room we stayed in was very well appointed and very, very clean. You have the option of staying in rooms in the lodge, or in a yurt, teepee, RV sites or camping sights. Panoramas of the majestic San Louis Valley... More

After a day of hiking the Great Sand Dunes National Park it was awesome to come back to a tranquil place where I could soak my aching muscles and relax. The hot springs were perfect for that and actually loosened me up for another day of hiking. The surroundings are beautiful and it is clean. The people are very friendly... More

Thanks for your visit and for taking time to send us your feedback. Many customers enjoy a soak after a day at the Sand Dunes which we agree are a perfect ending to a day of sand and climbing. We are aware that our seclusion makes dining challenging. For this reason we have added gourmet frozen meals, sandwiches and dips... More

Joyful Journey is one of my favorite getaway destinations. On the valley floor near the northern entrance to the San Luis Valley, it sits alone with an expansive, panoramic view that takes your breath away. They have multiple options for overnight stays which include traditional hotel rooms, yurts, RV hook-ups, Teepees, and camping. I have stayed in all of the... More

Enjoyed a relaxing weekend doing hydrotherapy in the hot springs. Stayed in one of the yurts. Yurts are comfortable and quiet overall. Had a group of noisy campers who seemed to be unaware how their voices carried. Kitchenette that is available to campers and those staying in yurts, tee pees etc. were not modern or very clean. Had mouse droppings... More

I was disappointed at the level of cleanliness (or lack there of) in all aspects of the place. The bathrooms were dismal, the pools were poorly maintained and the camping spots were filled with broken glass and leftover trash from previous campers. The grounds certainly had a gorgeous view of the mountains and one of the yurts seemed to be... More

Jennifer, thank you for expressing your concerns. Joyful Journey Hot Springs Spa is a family owned operation. The family has owned this complex since the 1980’s and continue to make improvements. Many important improvements, while costly, are not immediately apparent to our customers. The hotel and conference center is relatively new. The new yurt you mentioned was completed this year...

I stayed in a Yurt for 1 night. Accommodations were basic & simple. The hot pools and sauna were relaxing. The staff was friendly. The view of the plains and nearby mountains was great. Breakfast was mediocre.
