Will not honor promotional food & drink credit mentioned on Orbitz. Condescending front desk staff and manager.

One of the best resorts. The perks of having access to the springs when the public isnt allowed is great. Breakfast is fantastic. Prices for tours and activities are terribly expensive compared to booking directly with the tour company. Would def stay here again.

Best hot springs in the world. Impeccable every time I visit

The springs are enchanting. The hotel is close by, a 5 min walk, and is lovely. It rained the entire time we were there and we could not see the volcano. It did not put the least bit of a damper on the stay. We saw toucans and lots of incredible birds around the hotel grounds. While we were there we also visited the wildlife sanctuary at Club Rio at the Springs hotel. It was much larger, newer, and more commercialized. That property had an amazing view, many more amenities on the hotel grounds but lacked the charm and the majestic springs of Tabacon.

The hot Springs are amazing. The staff is friendly and helpful. The only thing is that there are no regular tempature pools. It’s hard to be in a hot pool for a long time. Beautiful property. Well worth it

Stunningly beautiful resort with lush manicured tropical landscape framing the calming hot springs. Wonderful breakfast. Could use more restaurant choices. Loved our stay.

The hotel asked us what occasion it was and we told them our anniversary. They surprised us with a cute banner on our door. They also leave cute notes in the room and gave us a free bottle of sparking juice to celebrate (since we don't drink). The grounds were absolutely stunning and the food is great. They also have Gluten Free options, which isn't that easy to navigate when in another country.

Clean hotel, Staff very accommodating Great amenities

Early summer vacation really enjoyed beautiful arenal.

The grounds at this hotel and the room were beautiful. The hot springs were fantastic. Staff was great

We enjoy staying at this hotel. The hot springs area was beautiful. The staff was helpful. Unfortunately there were not any restaurants within walking distance. Other than that everything was great.

Tabacon was my most favorite hotel I ever stayed at, and I travel a lot! The rooms were nice and comfortable. The service there was amazing. The staff was so nice and did whatever you asked. The hot springs were amazing and beautiful. There plants and scenery but the hot springs made you feel like you were in the middle of a rain forest.

Great getaway! Amazing staff and superb location. Highly recommend it. Wow

Amazing hot spring, Cecilia is the best Receptionist of Front Desk.. very charming and friendly staff.. will come back soon..

Shangri la area is best. Only for hotel guests adult.
