It's very interesting and a must-see while you're there! A little smelly from the sulfur, but very cool experience!

Based on recent reviews, we went there early in the morning to avoid tourists. At 9am, there was no one... and even no guide! he was late and we had to wait 30min. 1. You come to the Sulphur Springs from Soufriere, it's only 5min after the city exit. It's very close to Sugar Beach (Viceroy resort). 2. You park... More

Just spent a few hours covered in smelly black mud and then sitting in the hot pool, it was great. It's amazing how one reverts to childhood when the opportunity arises. We took great delight in slapping as much mud on each other as possible as did most of the 100 or so other people who were there. The water... More

This was my first time visiting the Sulphur Springs, and I really did enjoy it. The smell of sulphur didn't bother me, it smells like scrambled eggs for a bit but while you are actually doing the mud bath you get used to it- I didn't even notice it anymore. You can either put on grey mud or black mud,... More

The water that you get in before putting mud all over yourself is super hot but you get used to it. My husband who HATES to get dirty said that the mud bath was one of his favorite things that we did on our honeymoon. We went to the mud bath with a private guide and that was helpful b/c... More

We had a wonderful time and FULLY recommend that anyone traveling to St. Lucia take advantage of this once in a lifetime experience. Definitely DO the mud bath, it's memorable and tons of fun, not to mention how exhilarated you and your skin will feel. Do a "wink, wink, nudge, nudge" and ask for some mud to take home with...

Invigorating. Healed a swollen knee my husband had since before our wedding. It was a miracle! We enjoyed some rum punch while we soaked in the minerals.

We were there at low season and there were only a few people there at the same time as us so it was great fun slapping black mud over each other. The water in the pool is extremely hot and you can literally only go straight in and straight out again, I'm not sure who could tolerate being in there... More
