“Bad experience”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

The place is not clean and very bad maintained. Water are full with dead insects.
It seems like people are coming to clean up and drink beer in the hot springs.

“Malo..”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

Not worth the entrance fee (double as in St. Teresa). People drinking beer in the hot pools, at night incredible crowded, overall a dirty place. Not appreciated.

“Not Much Warmer Than a Bathtub”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

After hiking around Machu Picchu all day I was really looking forward to a nice relaxing hot soak. I ended up being quite disappointed when stepping into, what was supposed to be the hottest of the pools, only to find it not much hotter that a bathtub. While the sulfur smell was to be expected, it would have been much easier to tolerate if the water had been hotter.

“Clean up after the Inca Trail!”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

I loved this place - first time I had access to showers and hot water in a week. Yes its not at all "luxury" but relax, enjoy it for what it is (and take your shampoo to get clean after your trek!). Cheap drinks which are delivered straight to the pools and lots of young people enjoying themselved. All good fun!

“warm, no shower”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

As stated before, the walk is uphill--the water is warm--you should bring your own towel--there is a bar. I found the dressing room to be clean and large enough. No attendant. No shower. Maybe I did not look enough, but it was not in the changing room or bathroom. That is a turn-off as there were many people in the warm baths. ugh! Not worth the money or time.
