I love a soak in the hot springs! I recommend only going after the sun goes down. It's better than a full body massage but be warned, it is HOT. Take your time going in. You might think in the beginning that you can't handle it, but after 10 minutes or so of easing your way in you'll be fine.... More

The name of this location is exactly what it is , a covered wooden open ended house with cement stairs leading to the hot spring waters. It's about the size of a small living room. A few locals were taking advantage of making use of the therapeutic waters which you had to get used to since they are hot (... More

We were on an excursion and stopped Bath Hotel and Spring House. I went in the longer shalow pool since the spring goes though the shalow pool. The water is hot. Went into the second covered pool, the water is also hot, but a nice experience. Guides were saying that it is good for arthritis. Nice place to visit in... More

This is a short walk from the ferry and centre of Charlestown, if you follow the main road south( with the sea to your right!) just past the second petrol station and opposite a school you will find a shady spot and the old bathhouse building off the road on the right. There are normally a number of goats browsing... More

It was really HOT. Water was clear and clean. Limit yourself to a minute or two then cool off and repeate. There was no charge and is about a mile walk from center of Charlestown.

It is interesting to view the Bath Hotel area, even though you can't enter the hotel building itself because it is in use as government offices, and the 18th century bath house is boarded up and not in use any more. As for the hot spring, I am in my mid 60s, and I have used the hot spring bathing... More

If you visit on a tour given by a knowledgeable local, you will get an understanding of these baths. Yes there is the history, but more importantly, with many people in the area being very poor, these baths provide them with a means of keeping clean. They aren't very big, but then neither is the island! Some of the previous... More

While it is an interesting story about the Bath Hotel and hot springs, the water and pool just didn't seem clean/sanitary to me. I stuck my feet in for a few seconds. Definitely HOT! Others in our group wouldn't touch the water! It wasn't very big and several locals were in it. The whole place is run down and overgrown... More

I was given a tour of the Bath Hotel and Spring House by a good friend who works there. The old building from the 1700's has a lot of history including being the first hotel in the Caribbean. The actual working bath is so hot I could only get my feet in, so I can't verify claims that it heals... More
