“The Perfect Rx for R&R”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

We didn't stay here. However, we were nearby at Elephant Butte and being a native to NM we knew about the hot springs. We arrived to look around on a late evening Thursday night last week to just kinda peek and get some info. Elizabeth who works at the front desk was kind enough to offer us a tour as well as pricing and even info to stay on site. We booked two soaks in the private tubs. Friday afternoon which was plenty warm for being mid October and a late evening Saturday night to star gaze. Between the two I'd highly recommend the evening soak. It's dark, the stars are much brigher considering T or C is not a larger city like Albuquerque. It's cooler so you can handle soaking longer lengths of time as opposed to a warmer mid day soak. Plus it's so beautifully lit there and you will sleep like a baby when you're done because you are so relaxed. We booked both soaks in the Cielo tub which is the larger of the 3 total private tubs. They all are equipped with curtains so if you wish to soak au natural or just want some extra privacy that option is open. They are pet friendly as long as you have a small dog under say 15lbs that won't bark (just a pointer for pet lovers) and they are only allowed access in the private tub areas since those all have a balcony. The Rio Grande is a smaller tub, great maybe for a couple. However, I should warn you that the stock/model photos are decieving and Elizabeth who worked the front desk was very thorough in explaining that. The tub will not reach to the river as their photos show. Great pricing for the public or private soaks if you aren't a guest staying there. Cheaper than some of their other competitors in this state. I'm looking forward to coming back and staying with them soon!

“Great stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

Redeemed a Groupon on this deal. And I am glad we did...because it was GREAT! The water temperature was perfect. My husband & I really enjoyed the hot spring. We had a excellent view of the mountain and river as we soaked. The employees were friendly and the establishment has a nice antique look. Will visit again!

“Terrific experience!”

We had a reservation for a private pool, but the Rio Grande had flooded when we arrived. The staff cleaned the area, we waited until the river receded a bit, and we got our soak with a beautiful view.

“Will go again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

It's an out of the way little town, but very cool and definitely worth the drive! So many interesting things. As far as Riverbend Hot Springs is concerned this is the place to stay when you go if you are into hot springs.

We can not wait to visit again. This was the absolute best visit! In the mornings, the attendant walks around bringing coffee to springs visitors. AMAZING. I cant stop thinking about this place and cant want to return!
