As far as visits to a hot springs go, this is definitely a good one. The grounds are beautiful. The pools have man made additions to enhance the asthetics but are mainly natural. The water isn't deep. Finding a natural or man made "seat" in the pools is hard to come by. The water temp was tolerable - not one pool was unbearably hot. The cold pool was a standard tiled pool you find at any resort. It wasn't cold, though. A buffet dinner was included in my package and it was delicious. Everything tasted amazing! The cocktails are pricey - ~$11US for a fruity drink that doesn't have much alcohol in it. Beers are expensive, too - ~$6US for a can of Bavaria.
