“Awesome”
Reviewed 23 January 2014 via mobile

We visited here last week as we come at least once everytime we are in murcia. This place is so relaxing and anyone who likes spa's should give this a try, you wont be dissapointed. The only down point about last weeks visit was the main pool was closed for cleaning :( they had the other pool open tho so wasnt all bad. Lemon and salt pools are totally amazing and if you wanna totally chill out there is even an iglu!! Yes folks an iglu in spain lol

“Fabulous...a whole other world!”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

Do not be put off by the drive there! Once you arrive it is a whole other world. I have been several times now and stayed in 2 of the 3 hotels. The pools and spas and the treatments are amazing including Igloo, floatarium, lemon bath, hotbeds and much more! I would not really recommend it for young children although there is a childrens area.

The only let down would be the dining experience. With cold lighting in the dining room and no music it really is nothing special which is a shame as being in the water all day leaves you hungry! However this does not detract from a very unique experience. Highly reccomend it even for a 1 nite stay.

“Amazing place”
Reviewed 13 September 2013 via mobile

I found this place on line and took a gamble going and my boyfriend wasn't too keen, but we had the most amazing afternoon. It is so reasonably priced, we paid €25 each for use of the pools and the circuit. The pools, both inside and out are heated to about 34c, like warm baths. Lots of jacuzzis, plunge pools, jets for different areas, like your feet, cascades....the list goes on! (You can do all the pools for €10.) It was well worth paying the extra €15 for the circuit where there are relaxing pools, massage pool, hot and cold pools, an igloo, saunas, steam room and the best bit was the Floatation pool! Heaven! You aren't restricted on time so we went around a few times and selected what we wanted. There are plenty of sun beds and chairs around the outdoor pools. We spent about 4 hours here but could have spent longer, it was so relaxing! A lovely setting with the mountains too. It is easy to find off the A30, signposted all the way. This place was the highlight of our holiday!

“Sooo relaxing”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Ok it can be a bit expensive if you have a family but it is really worth it if you can afford it. We have 2 girls aged 4 and 5 and have been coming here since they were babies. It has a great childrens pool and they also love the outside currents that pull you through waterfalls and so on. Also the restaurant has good food at reasonable prices. Husband and I have also managed to come on our own and it was lovely to just lounge around and then have a swim when you want. Love it!

“A good day out !!!”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

We chose Archena rather than Fortuna because we were advised that the springs are slightly cooler and not so overbearing. We paid a package price of 30 euros each, which might sound expensive but did include entrance to both the swimming pools and the saunas, flotation pools etc and also a very enjoyable lunch. We arrived around 11 am and stayed until around 4pm. Taking all into consideration, £30 euros for a full day of fun and relaxation is, I think, very good value for money. The facilities are very clean, the changing rooms, pools etc are well maintained. If you want a good day out and like water, then this is for you. Maybe not the place for young children although many were there and seemed to be enjoying themsleves !!!
