Baldi is a modern hotel about five minutes away from downtown La Fortuna ($6 taxi). Excellent staff, super nice and friendly. 5-7 hot spring pools, 3 water slides (the one in the middle is ridiculous fast!!), and 2 pool bars. Hot springs pools range from 93-120 degrees - definitely HOT! Continental breakfast was decent selection (fruits, fried rice, omelet station, etc), but delicious. The one star knock came from no room service/bar/resto after 10pm and dinner buffet not so good. If you just decide to come for the hot springs, a lot of people just do the tour package which is $30/pp inc hot springs pass + buffet dinner.
