The Tabacon property is extremely beautiful. I would definitely recommend if you are in need of rest and relaxation in peaceful surroundings. The gardens with the warm spring water falls are like no other. The breakfast buffet in Tucanes is tasty. I was not impressed at all with the dinner buffet. My impression...overpriced Golden Corral food in a beautiful setting. I would recommend this to newly weds, those celebrating wedding anniversaries and to single people wanting a place to relax and unwind.

Absolutely the most relaxing, top notch hotel we’ve ever visited. Erick (Los Tucanes bar) bartender was incredible. Amazing service and what knowledge he had about craft cocktails & wine. The spa was incredible and the daily breakfast buffet was very good. Do not miss out on this resort. Views and service were no match!

Great hotel with great location. The water temperature for this weekend was hotter than usual, reaching 39 Celsius in the main pool with slide. There should also be a regular cold water Pool. Food at Ave de Paraíso was too repetitive and food quality was mediocre to regular.

Tabacon Resort is not to be missed. I feel it is a one of a kind resort. They make you feel very special once you come in through the doors. We decided to have a girls getaway trip and spend one night at the resort. It was well worth the effort to get there. The only thing I feel needs improving is their dinner buffet. I'm not a buffet person but I felt it would be awesome here. Next time i would skip the buffet dinner because the food was ordinary and not worth a $40 value. The breakfast buffet was amazing!!! I would suggest people to skip the buffet and go to the restaurant and pay a la cart before spending $40 on the buffet dinner. Otherwise Tabacon is amazing!!!

This makes 5 trips to Costa Rica and 5 times at Tabacon! We do like to go new places, but we always must go back to Tabacon. We just dream of being there, back in their hot springs, back to nature and the peace that we find when we are there. Everything there is always perfect for us, the people are truly warm and wonderful and just take great care of us. Angie has helped us book our amazing rooms and has made sure that our experience is special! The location is perfect, we are able to do great tours from there and go into town to experience the local culture. We can't wait to go back again :)
