Overall at great place to enjoy a few days. Professional and friendly staff, especially Angie at the front hospitality desk. The spas are a Must plus dinning on -property is very good, making you forget that there's no where close to go to eat if the food wasn't to your liking at Tabacon. The surrounding areas provides many choices and options of things to do, plus views of the volcano are wonderful whenever the clouds cooperate, but there's the real gem is the array of flowing spas to walk a...

Our family was celebrating the wedding of our niece and her fiancé. They were guests of Tabacon and they were upgraded by their close friends to the honeymoon suite. They raved on the service and the beauty of their suite. My brother, his wife and the fiancé's mother all were treated to the buffet near the hot Springs. The house wine was very good and the selections of meats, fishes, and vegetarian options were tasty. My husband has to be gluten free and the options for him were amazing. ... Read more

We took our four boys (ages 9, 9, 10 and 11) here and they LOVED the hot springs. We were here for hours exploring the resort and enjoying all the different locations within the thermal springs. There are different areas that have different temperatures of water. They also have a cold pool and a pool with a slide and swim up bars. We also ate dinner at their dinner buffet that had a lot of offerings and the kids loved it. TIPS: Drinks are very expensive at the swim up bar

Celebrated our anniversary there. Very romantic. We arranged for a private dinner, in a little cabana. Chef was right there with us (we pre selected our meal items). Lots of candles and roses. Food was excellent, everyone was extremely friendly. Highly recommend this place.

As others have said the hot springs are wonderful . They are not to be missed. If you stay at the hotel you get to go to" Shangrila" for hotter and more private springs. If you want to lay claim to the curtained beds you had better get there early; we never found one available. Do not skip a massage at the spa. The various services are well priced, beautifully executed and the ambiance is serene and elegant. The hotel itself is not s five star experience in my opinion. We booked through a trave... Read more

This place is simply amazing. The mineral rich river from the veins of arenal volcano flows down a beautifully landscaped river in a cascading manner. So many waterfalls, soaking pools, seating areas, etc. The buffet is also great and the poolbar staff is friendly. If I lived in Costa Rica I'd be at this resort at least once a month. Also, my skin felt and looked amazing after soaking all day! And it still does a week later!

Staff not as friendly as other places we stayed in Costa Rica, but not surprising for a busy tourist attraction. Our upper level room was a delight (but very expensive at $400+ a night), with a soaker tub big enough for 4 people! If you have a problem with steps, book a lower level room. No elevators. Restaurant was covered, but open air, overlooking the pool. Buffet breakfast was very varied with hot and cold dishes available; fresh orange juice and excellent coffee. The hot springs belong...

The hotel is pristine as are the rooms. Our room was large, with an adjacent sitting room. The spa area, although a 2 minute van ride away, was spectacular with its cascading thermal pools and surrounding jungle vegetation. The spa is open to the paying public but there is an area reserved for adult guests of the resort, where quiet tranquility prevails and drinks and snacks are served to your private enclosed loungers. The dinner buffet at the spa was disappointing but the two excellent mea... Read more

The service here was impeccable. I stayed only 1 night on a solo trip to celebrate my birthday. Tabacon was my last stop on a 4 day trip to Costa Rica. From the time I arrived, I received 1st class treatment including a room upgrade. I arrived early and my things were stored including my purse offered to be stored in the safe while I went to the hot springs for a few hours. I enjoyed a massage package (scheduled in advance) and a facial (walk-in) at the Spa. I had to leave early in the morning t... Read more
