During a week long ski holiday my plan was to visit the spa every single day. I only managed to go twice, during the week. First time we went around 3 pm and there were hardly any people around. Second time went 5.45 right after skiing was over and the place was full.
The staff was friendly and helpful. We were asked on both occasions if we had flip flops and speedos. My boyfriend had actually read beforehand on the internet and found out that the law in France is speedos only for men.

A plus for us was the offer they were running at the time, by one get one free on entrance tickets. We went both in for two hours just for €18.50. Another offer they had was a choice of crêpes or drinks for €2.00 if you purchased the two hour pool entrance ticket. Not to mention the crêpes were absolutely fantastic!

I found the lockers, showers and toilets very clean and modern.

The pools themselves were absolutely amazing. As another reviewer mentioned I think they are under rated as this place is truly amazing.

Our two sons went up to the baths one afternoon paid their 20 Euros each, showered and went to get in the pool. They were prevented from doing so by an attendant who said they couldn't go in because they were wearing swimming trunks and only "speedo" type trunks were allowed.

They were not made aware of this when their money was taken nonetheless they apologised and the attendant said if they went back to the desk they would get their entrance money back.

When they went back to the desk an officious woman pointed to a notice which apparently said only "speedo" trunks were allowed and as they could anyway buy speedos at the baths if they wanted they could not have their money back. They said that they did not want to spend further money on speedo trunks and as they hadn't been allowed into the facility they wanted their money back. She still steadfastly refused to rebate any money and exasperated our sons left.

We doubt very much if they had been French if they would have been refused a refund. Obviously rebates weren't unheard of or why did the attendant say they would get one. The woman just took advantage of the fact our sons were foreign to effectively cheat them out of their money.

There are other options we suggest you check those out.

Nice activity in Cauterets. Very relaxing after ski or walking day. The place is nice and new. The outdoor pool is great. No short tipe swimsuit for men allowed. Just two hours stay might be short time if you want to deeply relax. A bit permissive with kids in my opinion, though a great place for families at the same time.

I think this spa is a bit underrated on TA, at least I was positively surprised. I visited it on weekend at the end of the day and it was not very crowded despite it's relatively small. Unpretentious but very well designed. Plenty of parking available nearby. The facility is modern, from lockers to saunas, very clean, and there are both inside and outside swimming pools with nearly all imaginable types of water jets and whirlpools and jacuzzi available. Whirlpool beds in the outside pool seem most popular with visitors, buts various underwater jets inside are fun too. And finally, don't miss saunas and steam bath on the 1st floor.

Overall perfect place to relax after full day of hiking to Pont d'Espagne and Lac de Gaube.

I spent 4 days in the area and visited 3 different SPAs - this one, Luzea in Luz St Sauveur and famous Aquensis. Bains du Rocher was definitely the best one!

I visited this particular Spa a few times through the year.
The friendly staff quickly direct you and then you have two hours of all types of water "fun" From water jets massaging your muscles to a sauna and steam room. Many other activities, fitness and water aerobics to massages / face and body care and much more.
The main component is two pools, each with various water jets and streams - hot and cold to soothe sore muscles. Seat and beds, jacuzzis and more. All have water and bubble jets - at various heights and positions. The Spa uses natural hot spring water which are winter and summer at about 33C. The one pool is indoors while the other is situated outside, overlooking the beautiful Cauterets and towering mountains.
A small hot (38C) bath and a shallow one for the young (33C).
There is also a Spa Cafe that can be reach from within the Spa area - or for just the one who want to relax and drink a coffee or juice - beer or wine.
Only certain bathing costumes are allowed and so are footware. Find out before going - OR buy for a small fee the correct attire at the front desk - Sandals/swimming trunks ( you keep) and towel for about 13Euro.
