“The best Experience”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

I just came back from vacation in Costa Rica and it was my first time there. I can truly say it was one of the greatest experience of my life. Me and my finance stayed in the Tabacon grand thermal resort and had the best experience. The staff was very friendly and willing to help us when we need assistance. The environment was very clean and the food was great. I would recommend that anyone headed to Costa Rica stop by Tabacon grand thermal resort and you wont regret it.

When I came to the resort I noticed it was very well kept and very upscale and beautiful. From the time I came the staff was nice welcoming and helped me when I asked questions when I needed anything which is a plus for me. I felt very comfortable in my room very cozy. I believe that is what made my stay so great was the staff members. And I enjoy my vacation there a lot I would definitely recommend anyone to stay here.

I don't even know where to start from but the service from when we first arrived was amazing. The staff was pleasant. They catered to our every need. They made my honeymoon a week to remember. The room was great, and comfy. The view on out balcony was to die for. The food we had was so good I didn't even stick to my diet. But this hotel made me fall in love with Costa Rica like no other. I have already planned my next trip here this thanksgiving!!! I love it I just can't get enough of it. It's amazing. If you ever wanted to know where to stay I would say here. The surroundings are just gorgeous. I didn't want to leave.

Love the whole experience.  I visited for my birthday. I had quite a few people there, and every one had a great time. It was more than enough to entertain.  Bellmen and front desk was so accommodating and friendly. Location of hotel was great. Would do it again and again.

Basically it's like sleeping in the rain forest! Beautiful rooms & views. Great room service! So clean & comfortable! Really loved the room! Ordered food from an outside source, but had the buffet breakfast next day! It was absolutely beautiful and delish and the staff was so wonderful! Great place to stay in San Carlos.

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!
