Volcano View (Green Side) - La Fortuna de San Carlos, Costa Rica

We booked 2 nights at Baldi - we have stayed there 3 times in the past with no issues. This time, we hated it. We were placed in two rooms with construction in the room right beside us, right above us and right behind us. This was no spa experience. Drilling through concrete all day will make anyone crazy. Baldi has lowered the day pass for guest so the place was very crowded. No escape from people, no escape from noise. This was a totally miserable experience. We will NEVER EVER go there again!!!
We complained to the front desk because construction started at 6:30 EVERY morning and didn't stop until around 4. The front desk told us we signed up for this! NO ONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD SIGN UP FOR THIS! They didn't even want to hear our complaints. Obviously, they have had a lot of complaining and just don't care at all. DON'T book a trip here! You will regret it.
My wife and I have been staying there because of having the natural volcanic waters that fill the pools. But we found out talking to other guests That were staying at a hotel in la fortuna had all their meals and entry to your pools for the day included in their hotel cost. Lunch and dinner at your hotel. You only include breakfast in the price. please me know if you ever have specials that include all meals. Thanks Rafael M Peinado.
Huge place to rest in the Hot Springs. Rooms were very large and clean. I will visit back soon, I hope so!
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful experience at the Baldi Hot Springs and Spa. The rooms were lovely, the staff were very helpful and the pools (especially the private pools for hotel guests) were unbelievable. The hotel is a very close ride to town, waterfalls and adventures. We loved it!
Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable dans votre hotel.
Our stay at the Baldi Hot Springs Resort was amazing. We stayed as 2 families for 5 nights and had a 3rd level room overlooking the lush gardens.
As there are only a small number of rooms on the property, it felt like we had the resort to ourselves at times. It gets busier in the afternoons when all of the tours arrive.
The gardens are lush and well maintained and we were very surprised by the number and variety of pools available. The water slides were a hit for everyone.
The breakfast buffet was great. We found the service very good and booked a number of day trips through the front desk for the next day. All of the tour operators that were recommended were excellent.
Our only complaint was the loud music. It started just after lunch and continued until 10pm at night. With such pristine rain forest and wildlife around, it took away from the scerenity of Arenal.
We enjoyed our stay at Baldi Hot Springs and Spa. The facility is beautiful and there are many pools to bathe in. The breakfast buffet was delicious.Our room was beautiful, it was on the third floor overlooking the tropical gardens, very private. The hotel staff were very accommodating upon our arrival and were able to arrange transportation for us to go to town. It is not within walking distance of Fortuna, but taking a taxi is quick and not expensive. When we went to town our taxi driver came back to pick us up when we were ready to return to the hotel. My only comment would be that if you are wanting to go for dinner in Fortuna always make a reservation even if staff indicates it is not necessary. We would stay at this hotel again.
Baldi was a first class experience with great rooms, service food and of course a great hot spring resort.
We arrived at Baldi Hot Springs and were pleasantly surprised. It was more magnificent than ever expected. The sheer size of everything was amazing. We were greeted by the security guard who directed us to parking. We walked to the lobby and it was beautiful. The front desk staff were not overly friendly but helpful and polite. We had to wait before check in but they allowed us to use the pools right away. We were driven around in a go-cart by a very charming bellhop to show us all the grounds had to offer. There were 25 pools or more, all heated at different temperatures. Everything is well groomed. There is a beautiful garden to walk through as well. My boyfriends favorite part was probably the waterslides. One sends you down at 45km an hour! It was very exhilarating. Some of the pools are closed at 10, but others stay open all night. There are really amazing cave saunas as well. Our room was very clean and I think all of them have a perfect view of the volcano. When we woke up in the morning, we went downstairs for the complimentary breakfast and it was AMAZING. Some of the best food I've ever eaten. I was not expecting such a plentiful buffet for a complimentary breakfast. I loved this place and wish I stayed longer. The only downfall were that the drinks were overpriced.
WE were quite pleased with the room , clean well appointed and spacious. Front desk personnel very knowledgable , helpful. Only dissappointment was the swimup bars closing so early but other than that we didn't eat there other than breakfeast , so can't rate them. WE toured your country on motorcycles so the spas felt fantastic at the end of a long day. thanks JIM and Deb.
We stayed at Badi for two nights.The room was very large and clean.The hot springs and scenery was beautiful.The staff werent very friendly,and there was a lack of information at check-in.We found that the food was ok but nothing special.The prices for food and drinks was too expensive!We wanted a light and less expensive lunch-but this was not possible!We were not impressed with the dinner buffet!
Baldi is really awsome! So many beautiful swimming pools with different temperatures and the wather slides in the jungles!
Breakfast is ok, service in restaurant is slow though. And safebox in a room is not safe at all! So, no cash in it!
The hotel is a great deal. The grounds are beautiful and well kept, our room was clean with all the amenities and the hot stone massage was as good as it gets. Great for a family or newlyweds!
