I must say I love Costa Rica! very beautiful, and touristy!! And with tourists come high prices,lol
First of all, I'm not a sit at the hot springs kind of guy! So maybe my opinion won't count for a lot or you will see it has very honest.
First of all the staff was great! Very courteous and a lot spoke English! The drinks they made at the bar were top notch!! They mixed a very good drink!!
The water area itself was rather small I thought. We arrived around 1730ish and at 1st it wasn't to bad, but shortly after 1800 it was getting very crowded! And good luck trying to find a chair to relax on! Very few lounge chairs to be had. And people usually claimed them with their personal belongings. After about an hr we had more than enough and was off to supper there.
The supper was very good. BUT it was too much food,lol Yes complaining about to much food, weird hey,lol They start ya off by bringing bowls of salad and rice and maybe another item or 2 and u serve urself, then the brought out 5 steaks and 5 chickens for the 5 of us! We only had 1 of each, so their were a lot of left over meat! why they didnt just ask if we wanted chicken or meat? And if ya wanted more just ask--instead we felt bad about the wasted food. not really a negative as the food was good.
We would prob not go back as the pools were rather crowded! I think they advertise 6 or 7 pools, but in reality,maybe its 2 0r 3 pools, just that they have the bigger pools segregated off in a few places, thus counting that as another pool. I can't comment on the price as I have no clue how much the pkg cost as the Mother N law paid (TY) I believe the drinks at poolside were $5
Bring flip flops as part of the trail from change room to pool isn't paved
Great Bar drinks (you pay on the honour system)
Food was good
They provide Locker with key and towels
Too much food
Not enough chairs poolside
Crowded changing room
Again I'm not a pool person, so for me t wasn't a great time! And I dont like being packed into a pool with other people either and if I'm by a pool a chair would be nice, but wasn't able to get one.
The inlaws are pool people and they said the hot springs at our hotel was far superior, as it was less crowded
