We came to Baldi after a great day white water rafting nearby outside of La Fortuna. We missed out on a welcome cocktail they provided to some members of our group. The walkway to the hotel rooms was under construction, which made getting to the room a little troublesome. Also, the children's pool/slide area was closed when we were there.
We enjoyed the 26 hot springs pools during our stay, but did not enjoy the water slides. One was very fast and painful, the other dumped you out in an area too shallow. Many people in our group were hurt on the slides. Be careful! The pools were open late to hotel guests and were great after rafting. Also, remember to hang on to your towels/towel cards or you'll get a steep fine.
Breakfast here was on par with what we experienced throughout our trip. The Italian menu at Baldi for dinner encouraged us to go into town. We ate at Nene's in La Fortuna, which would have been fine, but I expect that they increased the price of the special for our group since no one asked the price. Most dishes were $10-20 US and the special ended up being $35 each and did not seem to merit such a price.
