This review is for the spa and water park only, not the hotel. My friends and I booked a spa package which included 1.5 hours in the water park, a 30 minute massage, 40 minutes in the salt chamber, and dinner, for only 36 euro. It was a fantastic decision, well worth the money.
When you check in, you are led into a small locker room where you’re provided a bathrobe, towel, and slippers, and a locker and lock for your stuff. I highly recommend you bring your own flip-flops, because they slippers they provide get soggy very easily.
The waterpark includes use of the swimming pool lanes, various hot tubs (none of which are all that hot, btw — they range from like 35-45 celsius), sauna, and crazy water slides. Note that there are invariably lot of children running around, people having swim team practice, old folks bathing, etc. We went on a weekday afternoon, so it might be a bit calmer in the morning.
The Swedish massage was incredibly relaxing, but the salt chamber was a bit strange as I’d never heard of it before. The room is like a cross between a beach and an igloo — salt was on the floor, walls, and ceiling. There were beach chairs to sit on, and muzak was pumped into the room. We weren’t too sure what to do in there except sit. Nevertheless, it was an interesting experience.
We then went back to the locker room to shower and change for dinner. There’s a basic soap dispenser in the showers, so bring your own toiletries if you prefer.
Dinner was delicious, but don’t come expecting gourmet food. We had a choice between beef and salmon; we all chose salmon. It came with a mushroom cream sauce, sauteed veggies, and mashed potato. We were also given coffee and tea with our dessert — an overly sweet chocolate cake with rasperry and peach (?) coulis.
This is not a fancy spa, but it was still a great value. I would highly recommend this based on the price.
