Old, not in a charming way. Needs major refreshing job. It looks dirty. But it isnt. Bizarre "updates" in lobby areas. Kinda sloppy looking staff. My ladies were super nice. But, It just doesn't look professional. They wear their hair down, Polo shirts, jeans, tennis shoes... It's not luxury. But, be nice to these people. It's not their fault.

This was the real reason I was so excited to come to hot springs, Arkansas in the first place. I had a thermal mineral bath package and I am a disabled Navy veteran from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and am injured. I did one bath package and when I got out, I literally had no pain!!! This place is... More

Nothing like three hours of just pure pampering. Let me walk you though it. Arrive and purchase deluxe package,. Girls go to there area guys to their. You are greeted in the locker room attendant. You get undressed and lock your belongings up and wrap up in a big sheet. Off to the main bathroom. Your attendant draws the big... More

The men's staff is very efficient and professional. There is a great variety of relaxation techniques ranging from a 15 minute hot soak in mineral water, to sitze baths, steam and individualized ache hot towel wraps. The massages vary as to the masseuse, mine was good, but heard complaints about the other. Clean and comfortable atmosphere

Wonderful as always - love the pampering. Take note of your attendant because each has their own style. This visit my attendant was not as informative and hands on as in the past. I thought policy changes might have taken place but noted others getting more personal attention. My husband's attendant was more enjoyable than on our last visit.

We had a fun morning walking the trails in the national park and ended with a spa visit. Wonderful experience. The staff were professional every step of the way.

Never been to a bath house, and limited experiences with massage, so this was great. I did the deluxe treatment of whirlpool mineral bath, hot towel soak, sits bath, steam box, cooling needle shower, massage and hand paraffin dip. While it was all happening I was relaxed and could have taken a nap. Afterwards I was totally rejuvenated and ready... More

After taking the guided tour of the Fordyce where the process and treatments were explained, I was really intrigued to experience some of it firsthand. It was like going back in time and they are using the vintage equipment but glad they skip the electricity and fire hose. Go to the Fordyce if you want to know what i am... More

My husband & I visited at the end of the day. It was very busy so we had a little wait, however it was worth the wait. We both had the full package of mineral bath, spitz bath, needle shower, hot towels, massage & parafin wax. My experience was not as good as my husbands. The bath attendant seems rushed... More
