Jetsetter deal is making me rethink?

We had decided to stay at Mountain Paradise really due to the views of the volcano, private jacuzzi garden and the interesting showers on the site all with a rate of about 100 per night. I thought it would be a nice private feel with some comfort.

Then I saw a prior post about the deal for Tabacon, should we switch? We were planning on going there anyways for the 2 day pass but not sure if the room will be more luxury versus quaint and too 5 star feel.

I had not heard too much on Mountain Paradise but the reviews on TA were good.

Any input is appreciated.

Just caught one mistake on my post, the two day deal we planned was to go to The Springs instead of Tabacon. Would it be better to do Tabacon and stay there versus Mountain Paradise and go to the Springs?

I like Tabacon, IMO best hot springs in the area. Lots of different pools and the grounds are top notch. Expensive if you are just visiting but if you stay at the hotel it's a really good deal. My vote goes with Tabacon.

Cheers

The daypass for Tabacon is $85 with 1 meal included and a taxi from your other hotel will be $20 round trip, or you will drive yourself. I decided since I wanted as much time at the hotsprings as possible (I've been in 2001 and 2003 and it's amazing!!), that the price difference was worth it, even more with the bargain on Jetsetter!
