“Nice but Overpriced”

Glenwood Hot Springs Pool

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.

I love the hot springs pool but not the price. The smaller and hotter pool is very relaxing and the views are awesome. After 9pm you get a large discount but they close at 10. If you go just for the smaller hot pool it's hard to stay for more than an hour. Regular admission was $16.75 for an adult which is ridiculous.

We had to go because it was the tourist thing to do. Paid way too much(family of 6 for about $80) to splash in an outdoor public pool. I did not see anything special about the whole hot springs water thing.
We stayed a few hours and left with a sunburn, next time my family will skip this and go to mini golf instead. Cheaper and more fun things to do in Glenwood Springs!

One giant pool 85-90 degrees sectioned off with plenty of space for soaking. Lap lanes and a diving board at one end, and a giant slide ( it closes at 6). The hotter pool is smaller and for a quarter you can get into this contraption they call a bubble chair, looked like fun. There is algae on the steps, along the pool sides, etc. It's a natural hot spring pool so I guess that's expected. We went at 7:30 p.m., the rates go down a bit after 6. Perfect time to go, there were lots of people but not packed like it was earlier. Lots of babies this visit. For the most part, folks were laid back, just either walking around and enjoying the warm water or swimming around a little. They had a deli which we did not visit. Overall, I did enjoy it and would like to come back with my teenagers. Went with 3 other ladies. I recommend the evening for less crowds. The view from the pool is beautiful.

We were given access to the pool as part of our hotel price; I would not have paid the entrance fee just for the pool. It is a very large and nice pool, but it is the public pool and with that comes lots of people, noise, splashing and a struggle to get a chair. Early in the morning and later in the evening were more peaceful times to go.

My husband and I felt so relaxed when we left the pool . So relaxed we went again the next day before we left town . The kids had so much fun in the pool and on the diving board . The water slides close at 6 but learned that they stop selling tickets at 5:30 . A good piece of information for next time.
