I gave two star base on my personal expectation. I really thought that when I got there, that I will experience a refreshing fun at the water. But instead, there are only few ponds that has an artificial water on it that has ankle deep water. The running wAter in the skinny stream, for some reason it feels itchy after 2-3 minutes of soaking my foot there.

It was a 3 hours drive, and we drove their by our own. If you are renting a car and you have enough time then go for it just to tick the box that you have been there. If you are in a travel group, yeah might as well see it.

But for me not a must see in Turkey…

Well worth a visit if in the area. It really is quite incredible. Be sure to also check out Hieropolis- the Roman ruins and swim in Cleopatra’s Pool. May as well do it all while you are there. The swim in the pool is really refreshing.

There are no pictures which do this place justice. It's a must visit during any trip to Turkey. One piece of advice - the place opens at 6:30 am - go into the south entrance right when it opens to will avoid all the crowds and have the place all to yourself. Crowds typically start pouring in at ~8a.

The pools can be skipped on your Turkey itinerary. Most of the pools were dried out, and those with water are being artificially filled with piped water. I don't even think this is mineral water!

The trip was worth it. The thermal pools in the photo here were quite a distance away and I could not get close to them - so only got a photo from above. The other carbonate areas are accessible, though you cannot really swim in them except for the Cleopatra pools. You just wade through them. The ground is rough and do hurt your feet - you cannot wear shoes in the protected areas. The area is spectacular. One day is all you need. Just book a one day tour with a pickup and drop off from the Denizli airport. Internal flights from Istanbul are cheap.

Not the best. The tour is too long, there isn't anything spectacular or beautiful about the pools especially because you're in a sea of people, in July/August it's too hot and very crowded, the ruins are not well preserved, and if on a tour the food is terrible. I would not spend your entire day doing this.

The place was amazing to see and will be a great experience without the pre arranged stops by the tour organisers for tourist to visit and buy from shops. The whole journey from Antalya would be about 3 hours without stop. However tourist find themselves obliged as most are not informed about the so many stops for shops that are totally unnecessary. We were picked up from hotel in Belek at 4:45 am and arrived at destination by 12:30pm. The peak of heat has put people off going around for sight seeing. If there was no mandatory shopping stops we would have been there early and not too hot to enjoy the place. Tour guide should really consider the interest of their customers and not their commissions in every shop tourist buy.

Not worth the money paying for a trip there was told 3 hours to get there 6am start did not arrive there antell 11.40 so took 5.40 mins to do 120 miles was forced off the bus to a tourist trap made to go round a marble factory that make ornaments you can buy in town for £4 they want £20 maximum 3 hours for this journey but they take nirly double that got there expecting to see theses great pools of water to find the place had switched off the water to nirly all the pools leaving only about 5 pools with water in for thousands of visitors to get into full of baby wipes plasters toiletries rubbish and all sorts so clearly they are never cleaned out at all the Roman bath is very dirty you have to pay extra for that and your probably gonna catch the plage from it the only good thing about it is the Roman ruins I would not recommend anyone to go it is a waist of money and time a hole day waisted on the road for over 11 hours for just 3 hours at location I could of drive there my self in 2 and a half hours

It's worth it!
Can be crowded but it's worth it.
You have 🏧 on site and restaurants and shops. 200 lira per person for non turkish people. It's a no shoe area, but at the top its okay with shoe's.

Pamukkale is a beautiful.place to visit and experience. I have been there five or six times and I recommend a day trip so you avoid the RIP-off merchants who "feed" on the tourists. The hotels are too expensive. Overpriced drinks and food. There is no nightlife. No even a decent bar. Full of wasters whose only job is to extract as much out of the tourist as possible. Trying to get a parking space costs you a arm and a leg. If you go there stay in Denzili or get a one-day organized trip.
