The resort is beautiful although there are no natural hot springs as there are at Tabacon and Arenal hot springs. Everything is poured concreted. The water is still beautiful and some pools were really hot, which was very nice.
There is a sauna in the "cave" area but it smelled like urine every time we went in the check it out.
There ia wifi but it seldomly works and when it does it is painfully slow.
The worst part for me was the really, really, really loud dance music that goes well past 2am. I eventually fell asleep but paying over $300 per night and Baldi presenting itself as premium resort. I did not expect this type of party situation. I would not have booked here if i had known.
I tried to call the reception several times but always no answer.
During the day there are plenty of children in almost every pool and running all over the place.
They present themselves as a premium resort but are more of a water park by day and electronica dance club by night.
I would never suggest to stay here unless you have kids and all of you can sleep through very loud dance music.
Try Tabacon its a bit more money but worth every penny.
