I've been to 3-4 different hot springs, and Baldi Hot Springs is the best of them all! The pools are all 90-100F, are are very well built, complete with mini waterfalls, 3 slides, and delicious food. Very romantic. Definitely will be going back!

There's so much to do around La Fortuna. But what do you do when you slip on some rocks and mess up your knee? You go floating at Baldi Hot Springs. It was beautiful! There were about 25 hot pools with the hottest near the top. And there were cooler pools to help from getting too hot! There were swim-up... More

Very impressive! Very clean, actually almost brand new. We were afraid it would be too crowded since we were in high season, but the place is so huge that we did not feel it was too crowded. I recommend taking the buffet for +22$. Was very tasty and quite cheap for an all you-can eat buffet

We spent an afternoon here and had great time. The slides aren't what you typically find in states. We tried them all and a few of us were sore. They are fast and knock you around a bit. They were fun but probably risky. A local told us later they see ambulances there frequently. We also had the buffet which... More

Lots of hot pools and not crowded on Monday evening. Slide is scary for adult but guess I took the fastest one. Guard just shrugged when I asked in Spanish. Glad to see a guard in dark. Las Vegas vibe and dinner unexceptional but adequate. An experience to try out hot springs. You pay $10 deposit for towels and $6... More

Baldi hot springs have a strong reputation and may be expensive, but it seriously worth it... there are so many bath, so little people (or you can always find some privacy), and the place look so good, you'll be able to make good photos to make your friends jealous, you'll be able to have a nice time with your wife...

Water slides for the kids, hot springs and swim up bar for mom and dad. A food buffet can be included, which we did. Simple, "typical" costa rican food. The experience was perfect after a busy day exploring the area. Lockers, towels, showers are all provided.

Such a beautiful place to visit, the staff was friendly and the springs are breathtaking this place had something for everyone, if you're just interested in chilling in one of the 20 pools or just hanging out in the massive jacuzzi pool, or maybe you want to go down one of the 3 awesome water slides. My girlfriend and I... More

Nice place, well kept grounds. Room was comfortable. Drinks and food were over priced. I think the hot springs closed a little too early for hotel guests personally. Breakfast wasn't much to brag about, would I stay here again if in La Fortuna? Maybe, but not dead set on it.
