I love hot springs so went many hot springs in the US, Canada, Japan, but this is the one of the best. Every hotel staff are kind and cheerful. Also Ristorante Virgita serves very fancy Italian food with reasonable price. I love to go back again.

There are many pools of different temperature. Pools were well maintained and changing facilities were adequate. We just did the springs, did not stay at resort. The bar areas accommodated both wet and dry.

We just returned from an amazing week in Costa Rica! After a wet afternoon zip lining at Arenal, we wanted to check out hot springs but after driving by public springs, I wasn't up for a bath with a hundred other people. So we made a last minute decision to stay in Area and booked two rooms at Baldi. Great...

We had been traveling for days and were eager to get in the hot springs. We had been persuaded by our hotel to go to Baldi. Upon arrival there were many tour buses. While we enjoyed being in the hot water and wizzing down the water slides, it was very much like being at an amusement park. Dinner was served...

For couples, this is not to be missed! It starts with a sumptuous hot oil massage. That was really all I had expected. Next, a rich, hot chocolate body wrap and facial. You finish with a dip in a private pool. And enjoy some nice fruit and wine while you're relaxing in your warmed robe. Truly the best couples massage...

For under $45 you get a daily pass with as many in and out as you want. That included lunch or dinner ( buffet ). Buy the tickets outside ( agency) to save as compare with on-site price. Verity of pools with different temperatures. Very clean and friendly

Lockers and towels were available - locker rental is 6 USD and towels is a 10 USD deposit per towel. Quite expensive but then again,...

The resort itself looks very nice and is well maintained. The ambiance at night is very relaxing with the design and lights etc. There are multiple pools of varying temperatures to pick from which will suit everyone's preferences. Some pools are very tranquil and calm while others have swim up bars and TV's to watch the latest sports. There is...
