We waited for parking, almost felt that it wouldn't be worth our while to go there since there were so many cars parked in legal and not so legal spots. We paid the fee to use the hot springs and to our amazement, they weren't...More

this place is well worth a visit provided you are not swamped by cruise ship tourists and local families all on a bank holiday break. Parking on road outside entrance gate, also a snack bar there - so buy before you enter. Range of prices...More

Beautiful wooded area with multiple thermal baths and changing rooms. Baths can be crowded and are not as hot as I'd like them, but being very close to Ribeira Grande (where I stayed) was important.

We were shocked to see the Number of cars lined along the road to go to this place. Luckily there wasn’t much of a wait to actually get in. We had already been at bona beija and terra nostra, we were disappointed with this location....More

This is a perfect stop. The drive up takes about 15 minutes and it is not too high. There is parking on 2 parts of the road and a small snack place outside of the gates. It costs 3 euros to see the area and...More

Gorgeous, pristine. We went on a cloudy, rainy day, and with the fog draping the trees above us in the mountains it was a magical experience. You can get a locker when you get in to store your stuff for a 5 euro deposit, and...More

This place was wonderful. We arrived as it opened and swam alone for an hour. We visited the highest pool first with the waterfall, that was warm, then the really hot one. There were wooden changing rooms, modern showers and toilets and an information centre....More
