My friend and I visited Ojo Caliente in February, 2004. We weren't very happy with our hotel room. It was very old, small, and only had one bed. For $90, we expected something better. However, it did include use of the mineral springs. The pools are manmade and quite small, but there weren't very many people there, so they weren't crowded. The waters weren't overly hot, so it made for nice soaking. We enjoyed the complimentary blanket wrap after our soak, as well as the very hot arsenic bath in private tubs.
The restaurant was very expensive and we didn't eat there, but the menu looked inviting and the people we saw in the dining room seemed to be having a good time. The establishment was very clean and the staff we met were all friendly.
