This is just to share a dissapointing experience with the sports and pool facilities (as part of the Sanocenter of the hotel) of the hotel. We did not stay at the hotel, so this review only concers the paid use of the pool and facilities in the basement. Unfortunately, for 15 EUR each, there are no towels available (so you need to bring them yourself), the announced 28° pool water must have been at some other point of the day and the desired hammam was not longer working (talking to the manager about this, he said that after 6pm you need to redirect yourself to the nude part of the center in order to use another hammam). Also the sauna stopped being operational apparently as of 6pm, although we arrived just after 6 at the reception, nobody informed us of this. In order to use the smaller water-massage-pool, you need to bring into the pool area 1EUR coins!!?? Some of the lights in the ceiling do not function which gives the whole area a bit of a grey impression, especially on a rainy day... no, sorry, for 30 EUR, we were not pleased at all with the offered facilities, apart from the new gym. But know that, if you do not have a room in the hotel, there is no hot water shower available for the pool or the gym. The available shower rooms were in the Sanocenter with a separate access "to be rented after 6pm"... Very dissapointing, moreover that one needs to cross a corridor passing by the restaurant in order to go to the pool area... in your swim suit... must be a weird view for the, otherwise very nice, restaurant customers looking through the glass access door of this corridor... Not recommendable as a separate treat from the hotel although there are many roadsigns in the neighbourhood directing you to the Sanocenter (paying wellness treatments, which are probably much better than the pool and sauna facilities). To come back to this issue of using the nudist part... it is indicated on the access door that children are not allowed, although we saw a family with small kids entering this side.... so, what to do? This really needs clarification or an update of the organisation and infrastructure.
