In Feb 2013 we stayed at a suite at the Tabacon spa in Costa Rica. Our room was spectacular suite overlooking the jungle and with an enormous bath tub. The resort is clean and very well located. Limited areas for dinner and bit expensive. If you want to go to town (la fortuna) is a $10 taxi ride.
The hot springs are just amazing and a must do in Costa Rica.
Service in the hotel is not up to par with the $600 per night rate. We got misinformed on several aspects and the check in was very cumbersome. There are several other good hotels in the area but nothing as close to the springs.
