Hello Gerry, Thank you for sharing your experience at Tabacon. We are happy to read toy enjoyed our beautiful gardens with thermal pools and waterfalls that are directly heated by the Arenal volcano. It's wonderful to know, that you had an excellent experience at our restaurants. We regret what happened in relation to the prices of the tours however this is an external service offered by an external travel agency to the hotel. We appreciate your review and hope to host you again soon! Pura Vida, Marcel Stittner General Manager

Tabacon Lovely Luxury

Posted Jan 13, 2017
Tabacon is one of the loveliest luxuries I've ever experienced. From the hotel grounds, to the Thermal Springs, to the well appointed guest rooms, this hotel gets every detail right. But above all else, it is the staff that really make this resort a near perfect escape. When we arrived, we found out that we had been upgraded from our Tabacon Suite to the Senator Suite. This room included 2 giant bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a walk-in closet big enough to park your car and a comfortable, rather large living room, dining room. The view of the jungle from the master bedroom is spectacular. As a family of 4 we really appreciated their foresight. It rained quite a bit during our 1-week visit so the extra space was a welcome relief. I have stayed in luxury resorts (Fairmonts, Ritz Carltons, Savary, etc.) all over the world. Tabacon wins first place for me.

Try Los Tucanes for special dinner!

Posted Nov 21, 2016 on Hotels
The service from everyone was superior! So nice to be so close to enjoy one of the best hot springs around with a most natural surrounding landscape with the help of a shuttle cart to and fro. Only one little downside: our grandson stayed in our room and one was able to see through the slotted wooden door to the shower a body washing from the bed! Whoops!

Amazing Experience!

Posted Nov 17, 2016
Location: Canyoning was an experience we'd do again in a heartbeat.
Our 30th Anniversary trip was a spectacular experience regardless of weather because of our time at Tabacon. Central to the adventures in and around Arenal but a perfect place to relax in the evening - even in the rain.
