Ecotermales or Tabacon?

Is either one better when traveling with kids? They are 15 & 11 and we don't want to be in a "party" atmosphere. Just want to relax and enjoy. Both have great reviews but not much feedback from families.

Both are pretty sweet, I like Tabacon a bit better because they so many different temp pools, Eco Termales only has 4 if I recall correctly. Waterslide at Tabacon is fun too, it would get my vote.

For kids, Tabacon wins out simply for the variety, waterfalls, and waterslide in the main pool.

I know some object to the feel and construction of The Springs, but they do have day passes and their Club Rio is great for kids, and does have several "natural" hot springs set on the edge of the river, while up at the main complex, their main waterslide is much longer and more fun than that at Tabacon
