Owner description: The family owned and operated natural hot springs, which allow only a limited number of guests each day, provide a private, relaxing oasis during your vacation.There are five pools, one with a cascading waterfall, which reach up to 108 degrees Fahrenheit. There is no better way to unwind after a long day than by visiting the hot springs and treating your body to its naturally replenishing effects. When taking a break from the soothing hot springs, you can dine in the authentic, home-style Costa Rican restaurant.

One of the oldest.hot springs, family owned. Very rustic with several pools none are that hot, maybe 101 is the hottest. It was fun to experience - the pools, the bar that is staffed and the keep makes great drinks. It you pay at the end on the "honor system", and the wonderful family meal that is available by reservation on the grounds afterward. It is important to know it is not disabled accessible. The pools are crafted out of cobble stones, access is tricky and the hottest pools require climbing stairs. It is also very softly lite and the pools are not lite. The changing rooms and pools are very clean and well kept.

My husband and I visited Eco Termales one day last week for the 5-9 PM slot after a long day of hiking. It was amazing; one of the highlights of our trip! There was only one other couple there. The setting is very natural - you are really in the middle of the rainforest. We really enjoyed switching between the different pools, especially the one with the waterfall. The water was perfect and so relaxing. My drink was really good. The service was great. Overall, it was a great value and exactly what we were looking for to relax after a long day.

This was a return visit to these springs. We had come here on our last visit to the area 7 years ago and had really good memories. It cost $51 for each of us with dinner included (you don’t have to get the dinner, could just pay for entrance).

Some changes we noted were a sign on the road, a larger bar area and a couple of new pools. A slightly unwelcome difference initially was I recalled it being very quiet and adults only. Perhaps because it was a Saturday night, but there were more people allowed in than I remembered and there were a few children. I got over it.

The Bar makes good drinks – the pina coladas were great, a rarity. Prices were totally fair, not the high prices they could charge since you have only one option.

As we did last time, we got the meal. It was just as good as we remembered: salad; choice of fish, chicken or beef (you order which you want when you check in upon arrival); beans, tortilla, and fresh fruit juice. I had chicken and my husband had beef. The chicken, we agreed, was the stand out. The beef was fine, just not as tasty as the chicken.

We would go back.

This is the choice if you can't afford Tabacon. Seriously, you can't beat Tabacon. And it might be worth the splurge because there is no place like it. But if $170 for a day of hot baths for two people isn't in the budget, you can feel quite satisfied coming here.

We came for the evening time, in September, and there were only a handful of people there--which made the experience much nicer for us. It would feel different if crowded. I'd recommend asking which time period is likely to have the lowest attendance and reserving then.

I read some reviews where people complained of rude staff here. Yep, we experienced that. Maybe that's just something to expect here. Be prepared for something different than the usual friendliness and enjoy the hot baths.
