4 pools, 3 at 39° Celsius and another at lower temperature which are great for relaxing. Perfect place to visit by night! Adds to the experience.

My husband went in the pool and said it was wonderful. He wanted to go again. Maybe on another trip. It was a lovely location with many pools to enter. Some were busier than others.

Several pools of 39C and one of 28C i think. Water does stain swimwear /towels but much less so than in the botanical gardens in Furnas close by. Would benefit from more seats to sit and cool off between pools on a hot day but...More

Yes it is better! Definitely don’t bring anything white or else you will leave the place with a new yellowish bathing suit! Enjoy! It is a bit of heaven on earth!
