We went to Hot Springs for a girls getaway and after reading the reviews, opted to go to Quapaw Bathhouse. We went to the public pools ($18 for as long as you want, no reservation needed). You need to bring rubber-soled flip flops (*do NOT bring leather sandals as they won't let you use them as the salt will ruin them.) They do have flip flops you can buy for $1.00. There were 4 different pools ranging in temp from 91 to 104 degrees. There is also a shower house with soap/shampoo dispensers & lockers. It was nice, and I'm glad we went, but honestly, the jacuzzi in our room at Lookout Point Lakeside Inn was just as relaxing! The ladies working there said when it is really busy, it gets quite loud. There is a cafe as well. We didn't get massages here as the reviewers said they just sort of pat you. We went to Sabai Massage Spa instead which was wonderful!
