“Gorgeous, relaxing, romantic”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Another highlight of our Costa Rica trip. Such a picturesque spot and was not the least bit busy while we were there.
Plenty of different pools and an awesome view of the volcano, some horses on the hillside and stunning landscaping.
The front desk staff was friendly and really helpful. She made suggestions for more stuff to do and how to get around.
Highly, highly recommend!

“Amazing”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Some of the best hot springs I have ever been to and at a great price! Loved all the pools (fyi they are not natural pools) and waterfalls. Especially enjoyed the beds they have in the water, very relaxing! They had great drinks that you could take with you around the pools and a wonderful dinner.

“Heavenly”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

This hot springs is GORGEOUS. Designed in a very luxury fashion with multiple different pools to traverse through.

Come at night for a quiet, almost private experience. We ate dinner there as well which was peaceful and romantic. Excellent stop for us as a couple!

“Disappointed”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

I was disappointed with our trip to the thermal hot springs at Paradise hot springs hotel. This may have been due to my expectations rather than anything else, I was just expecting something a little more natural.
There are 3 pools which are basically the size of small swimming pools, they were warm but not deep enough to swim in, and other than knowing the water was from the spring there was nothing else really to say. They did have some underwater slabs designed for lying on which were very uncomfortable so I sat upright on them instead. We ordered food which was awful so I would recommend not eating there.
Overall I could have been sitting at any poolside so was disappointed that we had paid to go there.

“Best hot springs in La Fortuna”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

We had a 14 hour excursion that ended at Paradise hot springs so we were ready for some R&R. The hot springs exceeded our expectations. The owners son is the one who greeted us and told us about the facilities. He couldn't have been nicer. We put in our reservation time and order for dinner then hit the springs. The springs were really like paradise. It was such a beautiful and serene place. The different pools, temperatures and purpose were phenomenal. At night it's just beautiful. It wasn't over populated so my wife and I had some privacy and felt like we had the place to ourselves. The people we did come in contact with were really nice. We enjoyed our experience so much, the next day we left Baldi hot springs (after paying) and returned to Paradise. It was worth every penny and a highlight of our trip.
