Overpriced and the pools are crowded and filthy. Only outdoor showers, so people do not properly wash before entering the pools. Also very few changing rooms and toilets, so there will be queues all over. You will feel better just having a simple shower at...More

The banks termales are ok for an afternoon. Do not expect too much...a lot of tourists hang around in the warmest tubs. The water color is quite strange, but apparently his is due to the minerals.

This is not a spa... But for anyone that has visited hot springs around the world... The facility is nicely managed and clean. It is busy in the evenings with wonderful mix of local and international visitors so be prepared to be social - overall...More
