It is nice to go here after doing a trek to relax. For me it was not very special and the drinks were quite expensive. 2 stars.

Overpriced and the pools are crowded and filthy. Only outdoor showers, so people do not properly wash before entering the pools. Also very few changing rooms and toilets, so there will be queues all over. You will feel better just having a simple shower at...More

This place is a bit of a local bathing pool. There are many people who bring shampoo and bathe right there in the springs, which is kind of gross. Perhaps we happened to go at a bad time - I'm not really sure. The water...More

The banks termales are ok for an afternoon. Do not expect too much...a lot of tourists hang around in the warmest tubs. The water color is quite strange, but apparently his is due to the minerals.

After a 4 day hike, we were very excited to go to the baths. The first challenge that our aching muscles faced was a hike up another hill to get there. Not too bad if you're well rested but a bit painful for us! There...More

Gorgeous jungley riverside setting. Definitely worth a visit. The pools were not super hot, so don't expect them to be or you'll be disappointed. But you can order beers or cocktails in the pools, probably because it isn't so hot. We went around sunset and...More

This is not a spa... But for anyone that has visited hot springs around the world... The facility is nicely managed and clean. It is busy in the evenings with wonderful mix of local and international visitors so be prepared to be social - overall...More
