The hype is all true. This place is incredible. We went there as a family and loved every minute! Can't wait to go back! The rooms are nice, the staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating, the grounds are breathtaking, the hot springs are like nothing else...it was all magical!

My husband and I visited Tabacon June 2021. Our stay at the resort was beyond amazing. The staff, food and views exceeded our expectations. This resort is the perfect getaway for relaxing and quality time. The hot springs were unbelievable. We could not have ask for a better stay.

Room tip: We booked the Honeymoon suit and loved it!

Eyed staying here before leaving to Costa Rica but the fee talked me out of it. Got there and reconsidered because it just looked too cool to pass up. Booked for one night but will definitely be back! If you want to go to the hot springs it’s $100 a person at Tabacon and is included in nightly hotel reservation. You have extended access to the springs 8am to 10 pm versus a 4 hour slot (notable because thunderstorms can close them down which is what happened the night we would have gone) you are able to use the hot springs the entire day of your checkout as well beyond the noon checkout time. They included complimentary robes, special garden only for hotel guests and a ton of other perks. They have delicious spring water and reusable bottles that they will fill for you for free. This is a do not miss in my opinion!

Wonderful stay for our family vacation. Beautiful resort and outstanding hot springs. Only drawback: were were not informed at check-in that breakfast was included and therefore we missed it until our last morning. With 4 adults and 4 children, this omission was impactful!

What I believe heaven will look like! The resort, the hot springs, the food-oh my God-everything here was exceptional. One of four stops, and unfortunately, the shortest on our trip to Costa Rico. It was by far the most outstanding place we stayed during our trip. I have stayed at many beautiful hotels in different countries and this is one of the best! The hot springs were beautiful and so relaxing. The best part for me was you could find them with different temperatures-I have high blood pressure and can not tolerate the hottest ones, but loved the cooler ones. My daughter and husband loved the warmest ones. Not only are these all so relaxing, many are absolutely beautiful! The flowers, the greenery and the entire landscape of this place is unbelievable. We were only here for one night, but I could have stayed forever! The food in the restaurant was phenomenal-the best we had our entire trip! One very pleasant surprise I didn’t see advertised was our breakfast was free! I almost forgot-with our one night stay we also got a $50 food credit, which we put towards are awesome dinner! The staff here is beyond accommodating and friendly! From our first encounter (handed a drink on arrival) to our last (infused water while we checked out) every employee from the reception area, the transportation and baggage staff, plus the restaurant staff were amazing. I can’t say enough good things about this resort! We can’t wait for our next trip to Costa Rica and to return to Tabacon for a longer stay. Just a quick note on price and room suggestions-we stayed in the cheapest room (which was fine-one night and we didn’t hang out in the room). If you are someone who will be spending a lot of time in your room, the more expensive ones have a better view (we just saw flowers and greenery, which was fine for us and our short stay). Also, I saw someone was complaining about price- three of us stayed for around $450-the springs are included, breakfast and a $50 credit towards our dinner. We generally pay $40 for breakfast, between $200-$400 a day for entertainment plus our dinner cost-not even including our room (my daughter did negotiate great prices, so we paid between $100 a night to $175 a night for our Airbnbs. Hilton in Liberia, we used points. My daughter blogs and we have lots of Hilton points, making our trips more affordable). We felt the price here was certainly fair for all you got-a day’s entertainment (the beautiful springs), money towards our dinner and free breakfast. People that complain about the price are probably not thinking about all they get for one price!

Room tip: If you want the best views, pay to upgrade your room. Breakfast is free!!!
