There are no hot springs in the area less expensive than this one unless you consider the free natural hot springs. We had a great time and the cost was only $28 for our family of 4. They have a small snack bar as well. Very clean and more family oriented than a romantic hot springs. There are several slides that are age restricted. The bigger slide that will catch all kids attention has an age limit of 9 years old. So be aware so the kids are not disappointed when they walk up to the slide. Overall great fun for our family!

The layout of this place is a bit confusing. It would be really helpful if they had signs or a map or something to tell you where the hot/cold water is. However, once you find it, the hot water is wonderful! The way they created the pools is really cool too! However, it wasn't incredibly relaxing. In fact, there were children playing with a beach balls in the pools, which made it feel more like a swimming pool than a relaxing dip in hot springs. But, it's a great price and it felt nice to sit for a few minutes in the hot pools! Both of the cold pools were shut down while we were there, though.

We went here the morning we were leaving town. It was $11/pp for the day, with exit and reentry, which would have been great if we had more time. There are grills and shaded picnic areas to bring food, and a small snack bar. The grounds were well maintained (though, at the time we were there they had drained the main pool with the slide (bummer!) and were loudly vacuuming it. There are a series of pools of various sizes, warmth and popularity... something for everyone. For the price, I thought it was great. There are little lockers at each ramada, but it seems like you'd need to bring your own lock (did not investigate this though, as it was not very crowded and we just kept our stuff next to the pool we were in.

After a day hiking and ATV riding, this hidden gem was the perfect place to unwind in geothermally heated pools. Like others have said, it is at least a quarter of the price of the other spas/hot-springs, and popular with the locals. About seven pools of varying temps, with adequate changing facilities.

This place is a quarter the cost of the resort style springs across the street. The real bonus, though, was that while the resorts were so full we couldn't get a last minute reservation, we pretty much had our own 111 degree volcano spring to ourselves.
