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!

Although the lake and the buildings look good and have an interesting structure, I'm not sure I would recommend the bath to anyone, at least not in the winter. The water (inside) was almost cold, that's OK I suppose, but in the building it was cold as well. Several windows were open (it was 0 C), and could not be... More

A world class thermal bath located near to Lake Balaton. If you have not been here before and you have a chance, it is a must to visit place. This time the lake was a bit cold for swimming (1st of January) and also indoors was a bit too cold in the water and also in the building. The Sauna... More

I travelled to Hungary planning to visit a spa and I did so in Heviz. The infrastructure is good in general assures you can come here all year round and the sauna part is very good, worth paying the most expensive ticket. The pillars and metal parts of the structure, though, are not well looked after, with moss and dirt... More
