Review of Glenwood Hot Springs Pool

Glenwood Hot Springs Pool
Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Owner description: Located between Aspen and Vail, you'll find the World's Largest Hot Springs Pool. The Ute Indians called it Yampah, meaning "big medicine." Soothe your muscles after outdoor activities year round. The large pool is kept at a comfortable 90°- 93° F and the smaller therapy pool averages about 104° F. Additional amenities include a lodge, spa, athletic club, grill and shopping. Relieve muscle and joint pain, or just relax and feel the wonder of a soak in our hot springs. Soaking in hot, highly concentrated mineral water has many health benefits. Increasing body temperature helps the body naturally kill harmful germs and viruses, eliminate toxins, and increase blood flow. The absorbtion of essential minerals gives the body a natural boost. You will feel the difference within minutes of stepping in. Jump in the large pool, at over 400 feet long, and "cool down." Swim laps or practice your form on the diving board. Water slides, mini golf, and kiddie pool are available in the warmer months. Bring your own cooler and snacks, or stop by the poolside Grill to grab a bite.

“Not all that impressive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

One thing everyone in my family enjoys is visiting hot springs and so we've been to hot springs pools in a number of areas. This one was so-so, partly because it seemed overpriced--$62 for a family of four seemed too much for what this attraction offers. Please be advised that towels cost an additional $2.50 apiece and they are thin and small. I would have liked more information about amenities from the clerks, whom I thought were sort of rude. It would have been fun, for example, to know that you can bring change outside to sit in these sort of underwater metal chairs that massage you with water jets--it cost $1.25-- but it didn't seem worth it to dash back in to a dressing room that was not all that easy to get to during such cold weather for some change. The warmest pool was great in cold weather--the very large pool was not all that comfortable temperature-wise in the winter. My kids loved the diving board and doing tricks outside into a warm pool. We did end up having a lot of fun at Glenwood Hot Springs, but sort of in spite of some of the circumstances.

“Fun and relaxing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

The Hot Springs were great it was very very fun and relaxing! We took the kids as well and they had a lot of fun. We have a 4 year old and a 10 month old and it was fun for the both of them. It is expensive but worth it.

“Great time with my daughter.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

We have been living in the area for almost a year now and my 6 year old daughter had been asking me to take her to the hot springs for several months, well we finally broke down and went and talk about a fun and pleasing experience. We had a bite to eat at the grill inside the Spa before going to the locker rooms and changing, the food was good and it is more like cafeteria style not over priced either. The changing rooms are what you would expect at a larger pool very clean and well maintained they do have lockers available for $.50, we found a nice spot in the sun very well kept pool area plenty of life guards. The water was very warm and refreshing considering it was only 45 out, a lot of families and people enjoying the hot springs we had a blast stayed here for 4 hrs and they have a mineral pool that is like a giant hot tub Huge very relaxing and plenty of fun for the whole family....We plan on getting the family pass as it will save on money, since we plan on going more often....

“relaxation at its best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Visited the pool mid afternoon, in February (low season) it was uncrowded and mostly adults in the pool. Locker rooms were clean, staff was friendly. Would definitely visit again.
