The hot springs was beautiful. Very cool hike down to it. Beautiful views from our cabin. Cabin itself fairly basic- it’s the setting that we loved.

This place had seen better days
Our bungalow had cockroaches dead and alive crawling from room to room. The bed was so uncomfortable we did not sleep through the night and got up with sore backs and body. The mattress was purchased in the 70's perhaps, you could feel the springs poking you. There was no Duvet! only a flat sheet!! Considering you are in a higher up location and nights get cool, it would be nice to have access to some warmer bedding. The hot spring was quiet but nothing to brag about ( not clean in North American standards). We would definitely never go back....

The Hotsprings is a unique natural setting, away from the other touristy hot springs of La Fortuna.

Hot springs in the forest.
I enjoyed both the thermal springs and the hotel facilities. While the springs were in the forest on the edge of the property, I enjoyed the atmosphere and the way it was built. If you don't like walking in the forest at night, although well lit pathways, you may be looking for something else. There was no problem with bugs at this time of year, Dec.

Forest Bathing
Good food, friendly and helpful staff, easy directions to the hot springs (walk-able of drive-able). The sweet pathway through the forest and the hot springs itself is magical. You are literally in the middle of the forest, with forest sounds while soaking in natural mineral pools! This is one of our new favorite places in CR :)

Great thermal baths. A real gem. The spa offers many services and the staff there does a wonderful job. The rooms were nice and very comfortable. The resturant is also very nice. a two hour drive to San Jose. Don't drive this at night; it goes thru some high mountains. The scenery is beautiful but this is not a drive if you don't like heights and hair pin turns.

The old room is NASTY. The pools was ok. The disgusting smell in the room because everything is too old.

Termales del Bosque was a truly authentic Costa Rican eco experience. The grounds were beautiful, the staff very professional and cordial, and the food was delicious. The highlight, of course, were the hot springs. I've visited several hot springs, especially those in La Fortuna and I am happy share that Termales del Bosque was a wonderfully unique experience. I had a deep body massage. And not expecting a good massage for the extremely low price $30!, I was taken a back by the technicians high skill level. If you are looking to be pampered this is not the place to visit. If you are looking for an tranquil and relaxing experience in nature, this a well worth 2 night visit.

Is a pleasant hotel and friendly. Perhaps a little out dated and could use some modern touches like hot water at the sinks. It does have hot water in the showers. Coffee in the room would be nice. I did enjoy my stay here. The breakfast did the trick and was good.
