Hot springs are beautiful. Several pools with different temperatures to pick from. I feel like $35 would have been fair $60 is a little steep.

We went towards sunset/night time. I would suggest couples go towards the night time for a more intimate experience. It is very relaxing and offers you time to reflect and meditate while being massaged by hot, vibrating water. So worth it.

At 60$ per person this is really expensive except if you are a big fan of hot spring pools. Very crowded and touristy. A way to avoid the hefty entry price is to stay in the Tabacon Resorts Hotel but I cannot judge as we...More

I have been to many hot springs and this was probably the nicest I've seen. there are many pools and it was fun exploring the grounds. I think it is very over priced, however, and I probably wouldn't go back. Not a good value.

Very crowded and difficult to get a spot in the pools. Went at night - beautiful but lighting poor - we almost killed ourselves. Locker rooms a little dirty. Felt like Great Adventure... Buffet was fine but nothing special.
