This place is great and totally worth the price. My wife and I recently stayed at Tabacon in Arenal, Costa Rica. We arrived late at night as it is a 2 to 3 hour drive from the Liberia airport through some twisty roads. When we arrived they informed us that we were upgraded to a suite, which was a nice surprise after a long drive. The Room - The room was huge, maybe even larger than my apartment. It had comfortable air conditioning, plenty of seating, and a huge bathroom. We easily could ha... Read more

We loved to hotel accommodations. The rooms are well appointed. The staff is knowlegeable and gracious as Costa Ricans are. The amenities such as hot springs, pools and the beautiful Shangra lah are a fantastic way to relax. The only negative comment andf the reason for 4 not 5 satrs is the only available food a the restaurants is buffet, not all people like buffet dining, but would rather have an order of menu selection. We found only 15 minutes away many great choices in La Fortuna. A ty... Read more

My daughter and I stayed here in March for either 3 or 4 nights. We got an awesome upgrade to a huge room that included a really nice bathroom. The breakfasts and dinners at the hotel were very good and we ate the buffet dinner at the hot spring restaurant one night and really enjoyed that as well. The hot springs were excellent, both in temperature and atmosphere. I stayed at another hotel in the area previously and Tabacon was far superior in every way. Highly recommend for anyone.

What an over the top beautiful place! What they have done with the river, ponds, pools and gardens are breathtaking. The rooms are very modern and inviting with great views. The beds are SO comfortable. The food is great and staff awesome and professional. Three hour journey at night was a bit much from airport but worth it. Lots if adventures to do when you get here. We opted to relax and enjoy the thermal springs and beautiful resort. !😃
