  • The facilities are very modern, are swimming pools very private and distributed among vegetation, very nice. Only in some pools if noticed that the water was a little stagnant. But there are things that can be improved. If the rest very well.

  • We went to the hot springs around 4 pm this Sunday. C was really much cheaper than other top 28 dollars per person and especially there was little world could took advantage of the pools at our ease. And then a small cocktail $ 8 in the middle of the pool c is unforgettable! The final c is the lights of the sunset on the volcano and the bats coming to eat the mosquitoes at night...

  • We chose the medium-priced Paradise Hot Springs bc of a recommendation of a local guy. Don't get the wrong impression when they advertise the area with 8 different pools! It's basically 2-3 "big" pool...  more »

  • Great service, friend staff, and DELICIOUS drinks here! The hot springs here has a bar in one of the thermal pools. You can also order food at the bar and they bring it to you. If you want a towel you need to make a deposit, use the towel and bring it back. Then you get your money back. Overall I HIGHLY recommend this place. It's cheaper then the other hot springs as well!
  • Relaxing atmosphere (no kids:) with a nice variety of hot pools with different temperature. Dinner buffet was ok. Shower room / dressing area can use some major upgrade.
  • Not so big as Baldi or Tabacón, but it has a nice view and clean cosy hot springs and jacuzzi, also very good price
  • A beautiful set of hot springs with a stunning view of the volcano (when the clouds cooperate). Different pool sizes and temperatures offer a variety of ways to experience the springs, while the swim-up bar offers snacks and refreshments. The six rooms on the property are comfortable and new, and staying gives you the opportunity to enjoy the pools grounds before and after the daily tourist rush. The on-site restaurant seemed a bit overpriced (we didn't eat there) but there are plenty of other great options in the area if you're willing to drive 10-15 minutes. Worth visiting for one day or several.
  • Lovely spot. Great rooms.
