I highly recommend the day pass with the spa. We spent the greater part of a day wandering around the thermal pools and enjoying the jacuzzi spa, it was a great experience, though there were no visible lifeguards outside, no major drawbacks though.

the water was warm and the best part was that you can hire a rubber tube for 600 forints and you get into deep water too without any fear

Nice but not as warm as I expected. It is very deep even in the indoor part, so you do need a floating device. You can rent one there, but you pay in cash inside, after crossing the long hall that leads to the pools and long after the lockers. We rented towels, but they only rent tiny ones. The... More

Although the smell of sulfur is a smell and not fragrance - the stuff is good for you. The facilities had been improved upon tremendously over the past 30+ years. The prices also reflect that and admission price is dovetailed with the time spent. Still it is healthful, unique and quite pleasant.

This is an interesting place to visit. Although it was cold out, swimming in the open air lake was quite pleasant. The space inside the spa is comfortable and there is plenty of room to lie back on a lounger by the large windows overlooking the lake.

The lake is unique in Europe and in the world. Spa building is finely renewed. Change rooms comfortable enough. Entrance fee fare. The only problem I have found - typic for us, hungarians - poor quality and expensive buffets...

In the winter the little Heviz airport is closed so there are much less tourists. At the end of February, it may be 0-10 degrees outside but the lake is at 26-28 outside and 36 at least inside. There are ramps inside the lake to rest if you do not have floating devices. Coming in during the last 2 hours... More

If you are staying in Heviz, to visit the lake is an absolute must. Do not swim in the water, get one of those styrofoam rings sold everywhere in town and just float... And in no time you will hear the gentle sounds of ruffling water. Enjoy!

Quiet natural hot spring lake, I guess the only in Hungary. Nice to enjoy it in autumn, when the foggy clouds go up and down....Take your private bathrobe, could be cold after. Nice and tasty food everywhere in Hungary!
