We just got back from Costa Rica a few days ago and my bf and I are still raving about Tabacon. Besides the spectacular hot springs, beautiful gardens and gorgeous rooms, the service is top notch. All staff members we encountered during our 2-night stay were warm, friendly and very accomodating.
We were upgraded to one of the newly renovated suites when we checked-in and I have to say we were blown away. The bathroom was the nicest we've seen in a long time with marble floors, huge jacuzzi, separate toilet room w/bidets, glass shower with various shower heads & jets...incredible. The room was huge. With a dining table, lounge area, desk and large windows facing a lush private garden with a view of the volcano!
There are shuttles at the lobby always waiting to take you to the hotsprings.. which is literally a 45 sec ride down the road. The hotsprings is paradise. You have to experience it yourself to truly understand the magic of this place. The Shangri-la area (adults only) was secluded, quiet and very romantic.
Food at restaurants were decent.
I look forward to visiting again one day. Highly recommended.
