“A genuine termal spa in the hills”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

The facilities are comfortable since the baths were renovated and include changing rooms, Before it was a pipe connected to the spring (off season it is still like that). The water contains colagen stimulants and is also used for patients with serious scars. Your skin feels wonderful after the visit. The road towards the spring is less suitable for disabled people.

“Nice showers, soft water”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

Nitrodi hot springs were very nice but, for me, not really in the same league as some of the other thermal spring locations. Sure, the waters here were really popular with the Romans so that is always a good sign and the water is really soft and pleasant. Still it really just has some nice showers (of the stand up or sit down variety) and a nice garden to lounge around in. A fellow guest at my hotel visited regularly in the hope of it helping with her eczema but I don't think she thought it was that effective.
I enjoyed my visit and the water was nice but for someone without a car it was quite a journey and ultimately I am not sure it would have been worth it if I had been on a tighter schedule.

“Very expensive for too little”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

The people running this place should be ashamed of themselves. They demand 13 euros for shower water. In the past it was much more affordable but since it has been privatized the new owners charge what they want and of course the prices have inflated to horrible levels. The owners even make sure nobody bets a chance to try the magnificent water by padlocking every free fountain. Shame on you!

kind sir, I believe that you should be ashamed at first, because you does not have the slightest idea of ​​what our facility and secondly because write a review basing everything on the price without knowing what you're talking about is a sign of rudeness and poor culture.
I will not dwell further we would only like to point out that our rates have remained unchanged since the 2011 period in which the management was still the town of Barano d'Ischia and no change was made later.
All in all it is fortunate that people like you thanks to our rates are not attending the park because basically not appreciate anything and would spend a day thinking all the time about money ....

“Not really a HOT spring”
Reviewed 19 June 2013

This very lovely place is not a hot spring exactly. People have been coming here since ancient times to "take" the waters which ,when combined with all the healing plants that border the walkways, are meant to cure skin conditions. The showers, not baths, come out of the rocks along the hillside. You get wet, in tepid water, rub your hands on various plants, and dry in the sun. There are lounges and chairs on the natural terraces. Bring a snack, take the day to relax.
We took the bus from Ischia Porto, the CS, get off at the stop after the town. Ask the driver to tell you. It is the stop after you cross the bridge, heading to S'ant Angelo. Then you walk down steps to the Terme. If you get off in town it would be a very long walk, unless a local gives you a lift, which is what happened to us, neat lady.
Good experience, but not a soak in a hot springs, which is what we thought it was. Wonderful view.

“A day at Nitrodi”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

The springs have been around since roman times and are now enclosed in a park. These waters are believed to cure different skin ailments, one walks along bushes of fragrant herbs (rosemary laurel etc) to arrive to different springs/showers. We were told by the staff to shower and then let the sun dry us... not so easy because it was windy, but we followed the advice, though we were a bit skeptical. The benefits from the waters were not obvious at first, but when we returned to the hotel a few hours later we noticed our skin was incredibly smooth and our hair shiny -- apparently the locals were right!.
