I went there like one year ago and I can say that the day pass is kind expensive if you compare prices with the competitors, but is a great place so I really thinks that worth the price. For young guys, it is awesome, there are 3 slides of different lengths, you can find like 6 or 7 pools with... More

Went here for the day and it was worth it. The slides kind of hurt but fun. We chose to come here on our "day off" from all the other full day tours. We actually brought some snacks, sodas, beer in our cooler backpack so it took the sting off of the high price drinks, etc. Many pools/areas to hang... More

The springs are super but the room are small and dated. You can get a day pass to the springs and I suggest sleeping at a newer hotel. There was no mention of the currently on-going construction at building 11 when we made the booking on Expedia. Kevan

I went on October 28th with a big group of riends and family from the US. The pools were ok, the green scenery is fantastic but the rest is mediocre. The staff were not friendly. They had faces of "I don't want to be here but I have no other choice because I need the job". Apparently with other reviews... More

Stayed there for one night and the place is overpriced for what you get. The rooms are very noisy, you can hear conversations of next rooms and floor stumps. Never mind intimate moments. The bar at the pool is ok for local beer at $5 , but got nailed $12 for an ounce of scotch with water. Also, all items... More

My husband and I were traveling through Costa Rica and put this on our itinerary as a place to enjoy a respite to enjoy a break with a stay at a hot springs hotel. They state lots and lots of pools, but actually many are the same. 2 are very hot, 2 are sort of hot and the rest mediocre.... More

My family of 4 stayed here at the end of August. Upon checking into our room, we noticed some kind of animal feces on the desk where the telephone was.

Didn't plan on going to Baldi by my Airbnb host recommended it once I was there. This place is amazing and the food (buffet) was superb! The water slides don't look like much at first glance but they are very fast! This place is definitely worth a visit. If you want to check the "largest host spring complex on the... More
