After a long time of not visiting Tabacon Hot Springs, I can say that the place has improved quite a lot and the pools have being upgraded quite nicely. Perfect for couples and you can't leave without visiting the spa.More

We visited here on a day pass. The price ($85 pp) is quite steep, but it is worth it. The grounds are beautiful. The springs are fantastic. The staff is friendly and the buffet is well done - not gourmet but very good.More
