Spa vacation
Absolutely wonderful, relaxing visit. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. Dinner was overpriced but tasty. Breakfast was an amazing spread. Beautifully presented and not overly crowded. The waterfalls and pools were gorgeous and the spa was an absolute treat! We will be back!

Tabacon resort review
The room was very clean and spacious for the two of us. The hot springs were spectacular. The complimentary breakfast had a good variety and the food was good. I liked shuttle service the hotel offered to take us to the hot springs. Overall I would highly recommend this resort to anyone.

Awesome Experience!
We had a wonderful experience on our recent stay at the Tabacon Thermal Resort & Spa. The staff was very friendly, helpful and professional. The room was very nicely appointed, clean and comfortable. A quick resort shuttle made it easy each day to enjoy the thermal springs.
