We visited Sunday afternoon.

It was very busy due to the Easter weekend.

We felt the inside area was quite smelly but I think that’s inevitable with the amount of people in a hot damp area. The floor area is very wet so make sure you take flip flops.

Outside pool is far nicer and so warm. We much preferred being outside.

Really nice and a lot of pools. They also have spa and sauna. Super nice to enjoy with friends although a bit pricy

The beauty of this spa is killed by huge number od visitors which is understandable as it is placed in one of the most frequent sites for tourists. What surprised me more was poor the hygiene and there was also just one bufet for lunch or coffee where one can sit. At the info desk, you cannot pay by card, if you want to buy something you have to take cash with you.

Beautiful building and great place for relaxing. It was awesome to visit this place in a rainy day. We enjoyed outside thermal pools.
