You MUST check this out! Its in the mountains with a hot spring under it, different pools at different temperatures to rinse of after you apply the full mud application. Beautiful mountains surround this place with hotel rooms and great food. Trust me you will never forget it!

The hotel is closed, there is no garden in front of it. They charge you in something like ARS 20, not expensive but keep in mind there is nothing to see inside the hotel, only what was a garden some day and the ruins of a beautiful hotel. If you decide to join, there is a pipe with water in front of the hotel. They say it is "The Pure Water from the mountains". The good part of this ride is the road up to the mountains, with a wonderful view of Mendoza area, and of course driving by a very dangerous road is also funny! Wind is very strong (you should take care with it) and you also can see a lot of llamas around the road (in the upper part of the mountains). Make sure you have enough fuel for travelling more than 100Km: there is no gas station after Mendoza city limits, mobile phones works poorly there and is hard to find someone travelling by that road.

It's an easy drive to the old hotel site with interesting scenery, but don't be tempted to drive over the mountains to Uspallata. Much better to go the longer and much faster route on the south side of Mendoza. It is a rough, narrow, rock-and-dirt road that is not well maintained. There was one washout that left barely a car's width for passage. There are few guard rails, fewer warning signs, and scarce places to safely meet an oncoming vehicle. At another spot, we suddenly faced a pile of dirt that had slid down onto the roadway. I was lucky the car did not get stuck driving over it. You need a 4x4 to be safe on this road. The scenery is memorable, but not worth the risk.

seen in july 2011. if you like looking at formally regal buildings that are going back to nature, this is the trip for you! it's not worth a stop as a destination but if you're heading that way, anyway, and crossing over the mountain, it's somewhat interesting. you can see where the hot spring baths used to be and you can tell it used to be a special place. then the french bought it for the water rights and pipe it down to their bottling factory down the mountain (you'll pass the plant on your drive up from mendoza).

A four hour trip out here, organized by the Park Hyatt hotel, was interesting for a different view of the Andes foothills from those seen on the main Mendoza to Santiago road - but at the end of the day was disappointing, because what you essentially visit is an abandoned hotel, seen from close up and from various angles from a nearby road. And a semi-interesting church. In many ways, the driver's conversation was sthe highlight of this trip, or maybe the models posing for a photoshoot outside the hotel, but we didn't go far enough along the mountain road for this really to live up to the advertised description. I wouldn't recommend it strongly.

This is an old hotel and spa, that is now closed. For a fee you can enter the grounds and see the shuttered hotel. There was a guided tour, but only in spanish. I would skip this.

Beautiful location and there is lots of wildlife to see - It is cool in the foothills of the Andes which is a plus, the grounds around the Thermal Hotel were very nice. Tour guides are great and the spring water is awesome - bring some bottles to fill. We enjoyed our excursion.

Took a drive up to the hotel and then past the hotel with a gorgeous view of the mountains. Would highly recommend it but go with someone who is familiar with the area as there are narrow dirt roads and a bit scary at times. We hired a remis to take us up there. We saw at least 100 guanacos on the way. The best views begin after you reach the hotel area so keep going up!
