Sulfid Water Spa - interesting experience

There are two thermal complexes in this town - we have been to the more modern one. The building is modern and the services rather costly for Moroccan prices. There is a pool with... read more

we visited this place slightly late in the evening. only had an hour to spend as this place closes at 6pm. We could not access the pool but had access to the Jacuzzi which is filled with the thermal water. there is a 15 minute time limit inside the jacuzzi and the attendants keep on checking on you if you...

There are two thermal complexes in this town - we have been to the more modern one. The building is modern and the services rather costly for Moroccan prices. There is a pool with sulfid water - rather hot and definitely not refreshing. It is mixed for both males and females. unfortunately there is no outdoor pool or way out... More

you should come just because of its useful and unique action for our health. i advice to choose part specially for tourists, because hammam for native habitants is a bit dirty and can be disgusting for tourists.

This is a nice termal spa very close to Fès. The place is mostly frequented by Moroccan people. The main pool is quiet nice space made by a circular pool surrounded by chaise longue and covered by a round cupola. All the structure is served by a natural source of sulfuric water very warm. Don't skip massages if you have... More

When entering the building everything seems very posh and clean but once inside I was deeply disappointed. The women's bath is tiny so we decided to try the mixed bath but there was no woman to be seen there. Ended up in the women's bath after all. We couldn't stand the heat of the water for more than 5 minutes... More

This thermal station is easily accessible from Fez by car. I think there are buses also. I did the top fixed priced "menu" and found it as expected. The stream room was HOT and defintely sweated the "bad" out. The pool was hot and the other elements of the package just fine. Overall really worth the visit if you are... More

50EUR package gives you a private bath tub style jacuzzi for 20min, then relaxation in a room full of biting flies, next being hosed down by a drill instructor woman for a minute, followed by some time in a 'vaporization' room (steam room) and a plunge in a round pool with nice warm water. The 2h session finishes with a... More

The drive to and from here is magical. Amidst the mid Atlas Mountains you'll see shepherds tending their flock and the king's massive private farm. Inside the "new" spa there is one giant pool that is sorely overdue for a paint and tile job. But the water is hot and salty. There is one long steam room with 4 chairs.... More

I absolutely enjoyed this unique time to blend with the Moroccan women of every age that were cleaning, bathing, and being scrubbed at my recent visit there.....I felt exhilarated and happy, the women would break into prayer and then they would zagareet (ululating or thrilling the tongue), I joined them and did my best zagareet, and they were very appreciative....Me...
