Hotel thermal pool, dipping in after 10PM?

Has anyone stayed at Silencio or Tabacon or hotels outside of Baldi with thermal pools. I've called them all and they say the thermal pools close at 10PM. But does management care if guests of the hotel hop in for a late night dip if they are quiet about it?

The Tabacon hot springs are across the road from the hotel and are fenced in. If they say they're closed at 10 PM, I very much doubt that you can sneak in. Can't speak to Silencio's policy.

We recently stayed at Silencio del Campo and LOVED it. I will post a trip report soon...when we were there the scene at the thermal pool was very low key. I have the impression you could slip into the pool quietly after hours. It is a beautiful place!

They are pretty strict at Tabacon. The back area is very dark with slippery rocks in some pools. I don't think you'd want to be there alone.

Thermal springs are not just springs in the ground near the volcano, they are really pools buiit by the hotels, owned by the hotels, and near the lobby of the hotels. To get to many of these hotels, you need to go thru a gate with security. Each hotel is about 1/2 - 1 mile from each other unless you are in town and the hotels in town do not have hot springs

We were in Los Lagos and Baldi Springs, and they were really just hotel pools and hotel whirlpools at different tempatures and sizes. Someone correct me if my observations were wrong
