We are finishing up a 6 night stay here at the Springs and it has been more that we ever could have imagined. Even when when we were told that the hotel was at full capacity, there are so many springs that every couple can have one to themselves and it never feels crowded. The food here is pretty good...

Definitely 4.5 star hotel. Room was huge, beautiful. Staff was fantastic. Read the website for a good description. The reason it was not good for me: 1) Very far from town $20 taxi ride to anywhere so you are isolated; 2) very american vibe even worse Florida vibe (much of the rock work around the hot springs is stamped concrete;...

Tubing, rock climbing, ATVing, hiking, horse back riding, food (much better than the town restaurants), cocktails, pools, mineral pools (starting at 104 degrees). It has the serenity for honeymooners and also the adventure for a family. The grounds are so large...
