hotel review: tabacon resort, la fortuna, costa rica

we stayed at the tabacon resort for a few nights. this place is based around the thermal springs that are heated by the volcano nearby. there's nothing like jumping into a pool and realizing it is steaming hot. it was really cool. 

(welcome fruit) 

(lovely room) 

(sweet chocolate covered strawberries) 

(pool area)

price: pretty insane for us, but it was the splurge of our honeymoon. around $500 per night (though some of the rooms were way more)
bathroom: huge lovely tub with jets, fluffy robes and slippers, perfect basically
breakfast: none included (of course. we did get the breakfast once. it was around $50 for two, and perfect)
location: perfect view of the arenal volcano and 2 minute walk to hot springs fed from the volcano
parking: as soon as we arrived, they took our keys and drove our vehicle to our room, then took us in a golf cart later. this felt so fancy
notes: this place was super lux by our standards. on arrival we got one of those fancy welcome drinks. there was a fruit tray waiting in our room. one night we got back from supper and there were those fancy strawberries waiting for us, and our bed sheets had been turned down (maybe this is normal for rich people?). for a honeymoon, i think this place is perfect. we felt so special because all the staff made a big deal out of it being our honeymoon. perfect is pretty much the word i want to use to describe this place. 

also, the actual thermal springs were really cool. more on that later
