We went to Paradise Hot Springs for a few hours after doing a white-water rafting trip. We had originally wanted to go to EcoTermales, but they close for an hour or so in late afternoon and that happened to be when we wanted to go....More

Yes, of course, you can pay more at the other, higher end hot springs in the area. And yes, PHS looked outdated when you first get there. However, if you are able to set aside first impressions, PHS is phenomenal, from the people checking you...More

Wife and I spent the afternoon at the Hot Springs. Springs themselves were an excellent variety, Hot, Warm, Cold, Waterfalls. Off season so only a few couples. Food okay but would not eat there again. A little dated but we enjoyed the day.

Lots of pool options (varying temperatures) and beautiful lush/tropical grounds. More quiet, peaceful, and romantic then some of the neighboring hot springs (not the place to go if you’re looking for water slides, party vibe, etc). We chose to come 2 nights in a row...More

Yes, of course. They even place swan folded towels on the bed. We stayed in the cabins. I recommend the larger ones, although the smaller cabins looked great as well.
