The bath is good for skin and muscles, but the water in the natural source is very hot, almost unbearable. The treatment is good, but the rooms do not seem to be very clean. The source is not to expensive, the treatment is mid priced.

Lovely experience . Our 2 nd visit there and loved it . The proprietor could possibly have been a little bit more clearer with her instructions . We were fine but I did notice people staying in for prolonged periods

Dont make the mistake to visit the place. Very dirty and old establishment. Questionable water quality. No infrastructure. Terrible stuff.

Like a throw back to the days of the hippies, so relaxing, you feel so good afterwards. After an hour here you will really be chilled out

The springs are in the other side of the island near the beautiful town of Molivos. You need an hour or more to get there by taxi and must make sure someone will pick you back on time since it's a remote area. You might also... More
