You might want to stay here for the fab hot springs, even if the rooms were dark, dank and dingy—but they’re not. Far from it. Guestrooms are large and well-maintained, with heavy, dark-stained wood furnishings and at least one wall of windows or sliding glass doors. Some have volcano views. Management has a deep commitment to sustainable development and environmental conservation. Plus, staying at the resort gets you unlimited access to the impressive Tabacón hot-spring complex, as well as slightly extended hours and access to a private, hotel-guests-only section of the hot springs dubbed Shangri-La. If you take into account the hefty entrance fee to the springs, this place is practically a bargain.
