$32 for hot springs AND a buffet dinner. It will cost significantly more at Baldi itself. We went in there for a few hours, and loved 23 pools, slides. Dinner was a buffet, a bit better than basic. Note that Tabacon will cost you 2x...More

I shattered my right collarbone going down the Baldi Hot Springs water slide last week (Dec. 9 2010). I only went down it once. The medics at La Fortuna told me a woman had broken her neck there a year ago. In perspective, I'm lucky...More

This was okay. It is cheaper to enter this hot springs vs. Tabacon but it also may not be as well maintained. The music is loud so if you are trying to find something more serene this isn’t it. Food is edible at buffet but...More

The staff here was almost universally uninspired. Most of them seemed annoyed for my wife and I to be there. We attended the hot springs (swim-up hot tub bars) of Baldi as part of a tour. It included dinner at the Baldi Resort's buffet, which...More

Springs were great since we came at an off season. Pools were filthy after storms full of leaves and debri and they didn't clean it the entire day. We didn't see one person cleaning the pools until 2 days after when they emptied all the...More

The best experience spa ever! All the pools are great and in November it wasn’t that busy. The food was average - the quality was bad and nothing traditional to try, but there was a big variety of international dishes. The service was really good!...More

I will be honest, I was expecting more natural hot springs but the environment is still amazing. There are multiple pools at different levels and temperatures and wet bars at a few of the pools but my favorite part was the slides. I’m out for...More

Definitely worth checking out. You need several hours here. We did 2 hours for hot springs and an hour for dinner and it was not enough time to spend in the hot springs.

We enjoyed these Hot Springs the most out of all we attended. Super fun but we also went at night during the off-season and the place was not very busy. I could imagine if there were hundreds of people it would not be as much...More

The place is beautiful and has a professional staff, I would go back and recommend it for everyone. Prices go according to the offered.

I’m unsure how to rate this. We came in the low season, so there weren’t many people there, which was great. I can imagine it would get quite overwhelming during high season. I think the cost to get in was reasonable, given the number of...More

Not sure where to get the tickets for $32.00 or what hours are for the evening pass but the slides are definitely open in the evening.
