  • We decided to enter at 17:00 incl. dinner - the facility is very nice, incl. changing rooms, lockers and shower. Bath towels are provided The water is quite warm and so provide the colder round pools for some cooling. There were still a lot of people although it on the HomePage means they only let certain number of people in. Dinner was buffet and quite ok A visit is worthwhile despite the rel high entrance fee

  • Already a pretty cool spot... We were in the complex from 5-9 pm in the evening and we really enjoyed it. Sanitary facilities and the facility generally very clean and chic. While 40 dollars per person isn't quite cheap (beer for 4' and cocktails from €8 and cocktails aren't), it's a unique facility where you can easily spend three or four relaxing hours. We weren't there to eat, you would have to add up the time (as well as 22 dollars per person). At the beginning of November without reservation could have been possible without any problems!

  • Maybe 5 different large pools in varying temperatures with lots of trees and plants surrounding. Great cocktails from bar up a set of stairs next to pools. Lockers and towel included. Buffet dinner was pretty good but nothing amazing. Had to change for dinner and we decided to change back into our bathing suits to make the best of our visit to the pools and was much more empty at that time. Large private and secure parking lot. A definite must if you visit Arenal area and would be fine in the rain.
  • Our time at Ecotermales was one of the highlights of our trip. Unfortunately it rained the entire time we were in Fortuna so we didn't see the volcano, but the hot springs were a perfect activity for a rainy day. The pools were lovely and it was nice to have a variety of temperatures. The food served for lunch was delicious. They replaced my wet towel multiple times. The bathrooms were clean and well-appointed. The staff were friendly and helpful.
