The Baldi Hot Springs are very well-made and make for a very fun day. However, they are not natural, and this is not an authentic Costa Rica experience. You have to pay to use the lockers and pay a refundable deposit to borrow a towel. I recommend making a whole day of it, and get a discounted ticket somewhere in... More

Baldi Hot Springs in very large, with many pools, several watersides, and hot tubs. It is not a very natural setting. Everything seems artificial, but the kids enjoy it.

The Baldi hot springs were recommended to us, and we would definitely recommend them. There's around 25 pools, of varying temperatures (one is super hot!) and slides too which were really fun. Perfect romantic date night, especially if you go in the evening as the lights are beautiful and its pretty private. Dinner is worth having too.

Absolutely our favorite day! Really loved all the slides and the "hidden" sauna at the top is incredible. Would definitely come again

Is okay, not great. Hot springs itself is relaxing however Baldi's entrance is not cheap and the drinks are expensive

This resort has the best hot water! Lots of pools with varying degrees, many of them super hot, but it also has plenty of barely warm pools for the kids to play in, plus a number of fun water slides. Beautifully landscaped. The volcano looms impressively over the grounds . . .Super nice

We started with dinner at the restaurant (included in the price). Buffet, nothing special but ok. Then into The water world. We sure appreciated all the different "stations" with hot springs, roman baths and so on. Two adult mən ended up having great fun in the water avelanches.

When we drove up to Baldi we were not quite sure what to expect. Kind of felt like a theme park, but then you enter and it is this beautiful resort with amazing grounds. There are multiple pools of varying temperatures. We went on a Monday morning and the place was empty. The day before when we drove by, it... More

Very good place to spend at least one day if you love to soak in the pools with thermal water, jaccuzi and so. The place is very well maintaned and comfortable, the staff friendly. From my point- they need to fix some watches to see the time
