“Crowded, cold, worn-out, oversold”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

The building of the spa with emailed tiles is wonderful and appealing from outside. Moreover the spa offering relaxation pool with warm salt water, sauna and jacuzzi is very well promoted with their web site and printed brochures in hotels and tourist offices in the region.

Our experience was quite contrasting to high expectations. When we arrived the capacity was reached (making a reservation is a good idea). The cloak room is not based on usual lockers. An empty hanger is served by staff and it is stored with clothes after changing.

There only is a quick shower in the pool area meaning that men and women do not shower separate and thorouhg shower with soap and shampooning is impossible.

The interieur renders feelings as being 20 years old. It is pretty worn, particularly the sauna with almost black timber. Although number of visitors is strictly limited, all facilities were crowded. The sauna and jacuzzi were stuffed by people. In fact jacuzzi is just a part of the pool sharing water not warm enough to stay without swimming.

Conclusion: we do not go next time.
