We didn't do any kind of spa - just drove to visit while in Sibiu. What a fun day! We slathered ourselves in mud and enjoyed some beers while we dried in the sun. Then we rinsed off in the salty water - just floating....More

We tried the budget lake experience. It looked packed and the guy opposite the entrance opened his field for parking for only 5 lei. The pool itself wasn't expensive and Kids under 10 go free. There are no lockers inside and as people were walking...More

The water is so salty you cant even swim, very funny :-) Salt and mould are healthy for skin. Level of services, food, drinks and prices are okay for such outside complex.

Took public bus from Sibiu. Easy. Seems to be various options as to price/services/ "luxury" . We picked least expensive. Clean public toilets and showers. Reasonably priced and convenient places to eat/drink.

The resort is not fancy at all. There are no great hotels in the area and neither great services. You will find those in Sibiu which is at about 10 kilometers away. This is a great place to go if you want to swim in...More
