My boyfriend & myself decided to try the Spa at the Fortina Spa resort as we needed some pool therapy. The first thing that is not welcoming at all, is the long distance you have to walk to finally get to a reception where there are staff. We arrived there at 3pm and we were still charged €11/person ( a normal rate) even though the Spa closes at 6:30pm. When we were given the keys for our lockers, the first that staff advised us is that the women's changing room was 'messy'. at that expression I thought it was because cleaners were still not there to clean, which still at a 5star hotel this should not happen. Once I entered the changing room, I was shocked! everything out of order and you can only use the changing room to put things in the lockers. Water on the floor, mould on the soffit and much more. Taking a shower for a woman meant getting all things out of the locker and walking to other rooms that were designated as 'shower & changing room' which were usually used as therapy rooms. they were in a terrible state everything rusting! The last but not least was the pool... although it is quite large, there is no such relaxed music while using the facility which made it a bit boring. no adequate tables/chairs were to put towels etc. Our experience there only lasted for an hour as we were quite angry. upon handing back the locker key to the staff, we were not asked if our experience was ok, and this left us with nit being able to complain there and then.
I would suggest to think twice before going there, as it is really not a Spa for a 5 star hotel.
