We haven't been to a place like this before. I was impressed with their electronic door/wristband system. The hot tubs were nice but not amazing... they were not quite as warm as I expected for February and we got a little bored.. I guess we just aren't a hot tub couple. Staff was nice. Artist Room is a good deal... More

Spent two nights/three days in the casita with another couple right before Christmas. The casita is just that -- a small house. Fairly new construction. Full kitchen,real stove, dishes, etc but a small dorm style refrigerator. Room for four at good size dining / kitchen table. There are cabinets in bathroom and bed room to store stuff, so staying here... More

We went here on a whim last minute. Booked a private soak for an hour and drove over from Las Cruces..... Let me tell you... this was the best hour this entire month! We relaxed together in perfect temp waters, gazed at the full moon and let the crazy, hectic life just slip away. This was pure bliss! If you... More

Riverbend was excellent. We were there at 9 pm after a long day of driving and it was perfect end to the evening. The public pools are $12 a person plus $1 for towels. The deck area was lovely, with lots of seating and beds for smallish well behaved dogs. The pools are outside with a nice view of the... More

So glad I stayed the extra day to go here. I've never done anything like this, and for the first time in quite a while I feel really alive. I did the private bath, but would like to try their public bath next time (guess I'll need to buy a bathing suit - but, they do rent those also).

Riverbend is one of my favorite places on this planet. The beauty of the hot springs is unsurpassed and it's so relaxing that you never want to go home! We stayed in the triple suite, and I can't say enough about how clean and comfortable it was. It is right on the courtyard that is beautifully landscaped. The night lighting... More

We came here and checked in late at night, the staff was so courteous to show us the property even past 11:00pm. The room was small but very well cleaned and maintained! Of course the main attraction were the hot springs which were great and views on the river were so relaxing! If I have the chance I will definitely... More

The hot tubs - general admission is $12 pp. for 1 hour. That is plenty of time to soak. There are hammocks, comfortable chairs, a sauna (a little stale smelling - add Eucalyptus please) and even small dog spa beds for up to 20 lbs. A cold water shower and 8 various temp soak tubs. No jets. Very relaxing and... More

This is a wonderful oasis in the desert. The place is beautiful and well-built, and very clean. you can soak in the hot tubs with hot spring water just feet from the Rio Grande. The staff is gracious and the prices are reasonable. There is an associated motel, or you can walk over from nearby motels. The views from the... More

We didn't stay at Riverbend, but we did hit the springs a few times during the month we stayed in TorC. The best time is either early in the morning or after dark. It's a beautiful facility.
