My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our time in the lovely hot water! We were very sorry to leave, since we could have stayed there for hours. Friendly and accommodating staff and a nice cafe for a quick cup of tea. Highly recommended!

We loved the hot pools, especially the one in the cave! Great place to swim and relax. It was nice knowing the water was drained and refreshed daily.

Such a lovely place. Lots of warm to hot water. The hottest water is in the grotto and you have to wade through a tunnel in the rock to get to it...well worth it, by the way if a little claustrophobic! I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and we were there about 4 hours all told. We also had lunch... More

Four of us just got back from a brief, but restorative visit to La Gruta. Per the advice of other reviewers we arrived early, around 9, when it was very quiet. We took a taxi from SMA and arranged for him to come back for us. 350 mx all told. The waters were wonderful, the tunnel is very cool. There... More

Very nice family spot--thermal swimming pools outdoor gardens and lawn areas--inexpensive food and beverage services. Bring a good book and simply relax.

Arrived early at about 830. Excellent time to get into the warm waters while the air is crisp. Practically had the place to ourselves. Lunch was great with fresh guacamole. Didn't bother with a massage as we were so relaxed after hours of soaking. A great respite from the long walks and cobblestones of the city.

It is nice to visit this place for family. We enjoyed the pool with warm thermal water and it was thrilling to go through kind of tunnel to get hot thermal water. You can order the food and drink at the pool side, which is nice. But only bad thing is, it gets very crowded. So you want to avoid... More

Nice place with gardens and swimming in hot thermal water. Gets VERY crowded though, so go as early as possible and be prepared to share your space. Is clean and nicely arranged.

We were so happy to find the lovely thermal baths and enjoy the day as a family. The people were friendly and they had an excellent first aid center when our son fell and really hurt himself. I must visit if you are in San Miguel de Allende.

First time I went to La Gruta I turned around and went back home,it was a couple days before New Year's Eve 2016. This places was like Disneyland, cars piling out the gate, 8 people descending from them and I thought it was not going to be the relaxing experience I was looking for. I was told they opened at...
