    Not too many people, $28 day pass I believe or $45 with dinner. My recommendation is to do just the pools and eat somewhere else. We got salad, baked chicken, soup and rice. Food was ok. View was amaz...  more »

    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.

    Supposedly not as fancy as the place next door, Paradise Hot Springs is a nice place with multiple pools of varying temperatures. It was not crowded in the afternoon. A tour bus came around 4 as we were leaving. We came back at night and again, it was not crowded.

    Beautiful! So many different pools and temperatures to choose from! Great bar with good food. We were there at night and it was stunning. A must see!

    Great place, could use some maintenance and updating, but for the price a great value. It was beautiful at night as well, staff helpful.
