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...

Great sensation, its hot water with minerals and sulfur.... It's great for the bones and skin, after the bath, you'll feel some itching but apparently it's normal because your skin is absorbing the mineral.... It has been proven that it does amazing things to the body.

I was taken by locals to the public baths not the tourist western style baths. You have to walk down about 500 steps so you need to consider that after the thermal pools and a massage you have to climb up the stairs. I did it in the middle of summer and I think it was about 37c. The tourist... More
