    A high point of my trip!
    Lovely resort, excellent hot pools/jacuzzis. Exceptional service and check -in/out. One of a kind place no need for Tabacón or Baldi hot springs/ prices. I have been to them both, but they are much bigger. Jackie at the front desk was so helpful, answered many questions/maps and attractions.

    I loved staying here! The staff couldn’t have been more friendly, the hot springs more clean or lovely or the rooms more comfortable. The food, also, was delicious, healthy and plentiful. I was very, very pleased. I would definitely stay here again. Highest recommendation!

    Beautiful room and grounds. Very nice breakfast. Room should have phone and full length mirror and provide robes for hot springs.

    Poor 2.0
    So over rated. Not worth it
    Sooo over rated. Service is so slow. Waited for 35 min to check in. No map of the grounds. Waited 10 min to check out. No one ever around. Food was ok. They had an omelette bar, but no one around to cook them. Coffee was limited and you had to ask for it and find milk. No cream. We stayed only one night thank God. Worst and by far the most expensive hotel we stayed in.
