I just felt transported back 100 years in time. I had nothing to do but just relax and enjoy the soothing mineral baths here. The staff were so very nice. The facility was so bright and clean. I have been twice and each time was magical,. I will go back again.

We loved our spa experience at the Buckstaff so much we will probably do it again this week before we leave to head back home! We did the whole experience and had terrific attendants and massage therapists. Since it was before Memorial Day we had no wait and moved right through all the steps. Highly recommend this for a true... More

I had the $79 deluxe bathing package with massage, and paraffin hand treatment. Cooper was my massage therapist and she was amazing. Beverly was the bathhouse attendant and also helpful. The only thing I would differently next time is to drink more water before I go I was offered water there but could not quench my thirst for quite some... More

This is an amazing experience. For 71 you get a whirlpool bath, sitzi bath, vapor room, wrap, and massage. I felt very good afterwards. After you undress, you will get a sheet to cover you. But you will basically be exposed quote a few times during your session such as in the baths and while you turn over on the... More

If you go to Hot Springs and don't take advantage of the real bath experience, you shouldn't even go to Hot Springs. It worth every penny to enjoy this treat.

A girlfriend and myself experienced the Deluxe Package yesterday. We were there for over 1 1/2 hours for less than $100, what a bargain! The staff was friendly and professional. Being the oldest bathhouse in the U.S, makes it such a unique experience. If you are looking for a modern, new facility, this is not for you. It was such... More

Wasn't sure what to expect when I walked into the Buckstaff, but it was amazing. I thought it would only last about an hour, but it was a 2hr experience and I left feeling very relaxed and recharged. Purchased the Traditional package of mineral bath (30min), then hot towels, steam cabinet, needle shower (which didn't hurt!) and massage. Staff were... More

Buckstaff Bathhouse is the last one left which offers all of the pampering! Go when it opens to avoid the crowd. The only thing you will need are some flip-flops, if you like. The employees are friendly and helpful. They are very attendant to your needs, and you never feel "exposed" at any time. They know how to help you... More
