This was a wonderful experience. Four hours of total relax. Had a great time at the baths. Loved the hot pools outside as well as saunas and other pools inside. Had a very good massage. Would go again.

We spent three hours at the baths and had a just wonderful time. The day/temperature was perfect. Although there were many people, it was not that crowded.

We didn't have enough florints to rent towels, so we just waited until we were dry enough to put on our clothes. Recommend paying the extra to rent a changing cabin.

It's a bit confusing; Rick Steves lays out the procedures pretty well.

We spent the day here in September and it was quite nice and relaxing. We enjoyed the outdoor warm bath the most. Baths were clean but interior was a bit shabby. We were dissapointed in the spa treatments available because there were prices advertised on the website that were very reasonable but once you were inside there were many different spa companies trying to get your business and they had prices that were double or even triple the internet prices. It was very confusing so we decided against the spa treatments.

We didn't plan to go hear but it was a sunny day and we passed it. We ended up having to buy swimming gear from a stall nearby! It was reasonably cheap entry and we paid to have our own "cabin" changing room to leave our stuff in. There are a huge variety of different baths and saunas. The main thing I enjoyed inside was the architecture! Absolutely beautiful pillars and murals. Outside in the sun - a big open pool with bubble massages and fountains and it was just lovely on a warm autumn day. I really wish we'd gone earlier as I could have spent all day there.

This is certainly a "bath", as opposed to a bath spa that you might be used to. Almost a public swimming pool feel; fairly crowded (even at 3pm on a Thursday), and not the cleanest changing facilities etc.

There are around 10 baths where 15-20 people can sit, so its pretty much shoulder to shoulder with other people. Also as the water is stagnant, there is a distinct odour in the inside baths (there is no chlorine smell, which might be slightly worrying). There are 2 large outside pools, which were probably the best areas, one of which you require a swimming cap. Quite relaxing out there, with sunbeds available too.

Overall depending on your tastes, could be a relaxing afternoon, though its certainly not a "pamper yourself" type activity. Bring your own towel/flip flops/swimming costume, and make sure you look at the map at the start
