This place is a gem. It was hardly crowded in December and has 2 hot pools and one waterfall area where the hot and cold water (from the mountains) mix. They were undergoing some construction in adding two more lukewarm pools for summer. Like the other reviews, its a steal for the price. We ended up going there to just... More

Despite the rain, we enjoyed sitting in the thermal pools. Everyone was friendly, it felt safe to leave our things with the security guard. Clean and well-run. Only $2 euros entrance, plus another 2 to rent a towel.

The spa is very nice, water is warm, you can go to more pools and choose according to the temperature. The entrance fee is 2€ which is really cheap and adequate. Do not expect any posh area, the shower is cold but I recommend everyone this place as worth it.

They have different size pools by height and by heat so the ones closet to the entrance are the deepest nd hottest the ones at the end are more shallow but still nice a d fun to splash around with friends and...

You must not miss a visit to Poca Da Dona Beija! Soak in the naturally warmed water during the day or night. It was a perfect thing to do on a day we had fog & rough seas, but make time to visit even in nice weather. Super relaxing. We followed the signs from Furnas. There is ample parking in... More

Loved these natural hot springs so much, we visited twice. Super cool property, so lush and cool. Nominal fee of 2 euros to get in. A great way to relax after a hike down to Lagoa Furnas,and a big pot of Cozida! The sad part, is that this brickish colored water permanently tinted my newly colored fake blonde hair! If... More
