Not too much to see

It's a very nice little place with a pleasant tiny garden. It's really nice to sit down for some ten minutes in a shady garden. But there's not too much to see and learn

Very few ruins left but the history of the baths speaks for it shelf. A giude can explain how the buildings were being used and how luxurious they were at the time. There is also a beautifully maintened garden outside where you can sit and relax.

The Arab baths are accessed via a narrow entrance into a garden courtyard off which various rooms open. The gardens are pretty and there is plenty of places to sit. The antiquity of the boathouse is undoubted but there isn't any great explanation of what is what so you have to leave it up to your imagination to interpret what... More

An interesting place to get a sense of history. Very small, even if you sit through a video that explains (Spanish, French, English and German) its history, it won't take more than 30 min to tour the entire place. If it's nice out and you have some time, you can just sit in a garden. (watch out for mosquitos lol)

I wish there were more explicit explanations in each room. There was a movie explaining the baths, but afterwards, we wandered from basically empty room to basically empty room........I would have wanted to learn more.

This is a small place to visit with some lovely pieces of old architecture - it is located in the middle of the town and very reasonable price to get in. It doesn't take long to get around the site, but it is worth a visit.

Take a few minutes out to visit the baths tucked in a back in Palma. For a small charge view the remains of the baths and sit in the quiet garden enjoying the shade and calm. Not exciting or large but charming in their way

Lovely garden setting for these old baths, the only Arabic structure extant in this town. Take a look at the columns in the baths, all are different.

I was expecting to see some baths but the rooms just show the outline, and to help you visualise how it might have looked there is a video loop running to tell you about the history. It was a little disappointing but the gardens around the building were lovely, and it was a quiet shady place to rest. There aren't... More

Hey if you happen to be in central palma/ old city and you are close by why not visit this place? Its only 2,50 Euros. Now, I actually thought I'd see some sort of pool but no, by baths they really mean this was used as a sauna. Its cool but nothing too impressive.
