I visited the Tabacon Grand Spa Resort and my experience was even better than I had originally anticipated - it was Amazing! The staff was amazing, the service was amazing and my entire vacation was a 10 out of 10. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to go on vacation.

Luxurious, but cozy .. Best of both worlds. The experience from check-in to check-out was an exceptional experience. The property is beautiful and has a stunning pool and hot rivers! I loved the hotel so much that I wanted to extend my trip one more day. Because they had my same room available, the even helped out on the rate.

The rooms are large, comfortable and perfect!

Anyone can call somewhere paradise but Tabacon truly exudes what this means! Unfortunately, a lot of places show these amazing breathtaking pictures and in reality they are so mundane and lacking authenticity. This is not the case at this resort. From the service to the spectacular views and location I wouldn't recommend any other resort but this. There are so many different things to do so it is good for a family trip, a romantic get away or even a solo trip. When I go on vacation I want to be able to relax and do things I've never done before and I was able to accomplish this on my trip. I look forward to bringing more friends the next time around!

I really like this place. It's like traveling back in time walking around outside the place. Trees and nature galore. The locals who work there are very friendly and attentive. Nice spa as well. You had the best mani pedi I've ever had, although they should consider adding gel polishes to their options

Dear Jackie B

Thank you so much for your review. We're so glad you experienced Tabacon, our thermal resort in the heart of the rainforest. As you mentioned The Grand Spa offers a memorable spa experience where all treatments are rendered in open-air private bungalows, thank you for your suggestion about gel polishes in our mani - pedi options, we shared your comment with our Spa Manager for consideration. We look forward to welcome you back for another unparalleled stay.

At your service
