Well worth the visit to the Baths. Wonderfully informative and the most beautiful gardens. Was so interesting to learn about the history of them. Lot of little sitting areas in the gardens and they run a video in different languages so you can see how the baths were when in use. Fantastic place.

OK we went because it was a rainy day and we needed to fill our time in Palma. It is a shame that they don't try to improve the small garden area which was untidy therefore I think that 2.50 euros per person is a little steep especially when there is very very little to see.

The previous reviews say it all, small baths, untidy gardens, unimaginative lighting, but still interesting to see if you have never seen one before. Can't grumble at 2.50€ admission. We went in January and had it to ourselves, so we could imagine the place when it was in use.

1€ entrance fee would be a more realistic price to pay to see the baths rather than the current 2:50€ charge. Although they are worth seeing there is very little to them. Set in a tiny garden there is a small room where a video in 3 languages is shown which lasts just under 5 minuted. As previously reviewed only... More

I have been reading a lot of criticism on TripAdvisor about the arab baths, but the fact is you get what you pay for! It is only 2,50,- euros to enter and given that it is the last remaining piece of Muslim history on the island of Palma de Mallorca, I would say that's a small price to pay! No... More

The Arab Baths are a small site of one-time baths. There is a 5 Euro admission, which is high for what you are getting. Probably not worth seeing, if time is short.

Well, I expected something better, different, better curated. The Banys Àrabs consist of 2 rooms and a big patio in where a video in English, German and Spanish explains how arabs used baths a social, hygienic and communities meetings. Unless you're into archeology of the cities, don't go.

After visiting Bath, England and the baths there, I was interested in visiting Banys Arabs in Majorca. It is very inexpensive and it doesn't take long to see, but it was fun having a destination as we wandered the small streets and allies. I highly recommend reading the information in the different rooms as it really brings the place to... More

On the plus side, this is a pleasant and tranquil spot deep in the alleyways of Palma, and its cheap (2.5 Euros) to get in. The garden area is lovely albeit rather unkempt. However, there's not really much to see of the baths, the sound quality of the video is poor, and there is very little explanation of what is... More

If you like history. If you like getting off the beaten track of restaurants, bars and tourists. If you like going "off piste" along Palma's mediaeval backstreets. Then I'd certainly recommend you search out the Arabs Baths (the only remaining Moorish building in Palma). 10' walk from the central avenues of this lovely city. Yes only a couple of rooms... More
