  • Absolutely exceptional and pleasant Aquatic Center. Little attention to customers however: 2 boxes only in times of high traffic. The hammam is closed for technical reasons but the price remains the same and the customer is not informed on arrival. Space on the roof reserved for the white bracelet, but nothing is available at checkout? The "lifeguards" far from able to do surveillance of all pools are by the gendarmes for access on the roof! No free entry for packages 6 days as in many stations. Too bad! The client makes you live, be aware respect it, even if you have gold...

  • It is always nice to swim in warm waters in winter and more in an outdoor pool. However, the pools would need a bit of modernisation and a little more maintenance (cleaning of small foam, non-functional jets areas) which makes the visit too expensive for the quality of the place...

  • Loyal customers for 4 years, we found a marked deterioration this year. Too many facilities operate as and an entire section of the Roman-Irish baths do not work without discount on the price.

  • Staff and facilities are amazing here, £25 for 2 hours of top quality relaxation - plus a couple of electrifying cannonballs in the ice cold plunge pool
  • Very nice public bath, has indoor and outdoor winter pools, with water up to 40 degrees C, a restaurant and a terrace. However, men cannot get it with regular bathing shorts (short pants style), they need the tight shorts. They can buy it from the pool shop for 17 eur. Also, kids only have access in the pool until 1PM.
  • It was not my favorite to strict, to many rules, everything is forbidden. I found it expensive. For me it's not for kids, mainly adults. I would not go back. I prefer the pool in Briancon, fun for kids, it has adult area, nice indoor slide. Half price, nice staff
  • Fun but they have strict rules about the bathing suits check the website before you come
  • This place is a SCAM, A RIP OFF, A DUMP! Don't take my word for it, here are some reasons from the top of my head: 1. Regardless of what type of shorts/etc you have, they're not ok, staff tells you "sorry you're not allowed in those. But don't worry! You can buy the correct ones from our boutique!" but no explanation why not. Worst part is they tell you this only after you paid, when you're inside and already showered and wet, so you don't have any choice but buy their swimming suit. 2. The WC doesn't have a toilet seat. In the men's room if you want to sit you have to sit directly on the wc (which is full of everyone else's urine), and you don't have anything to at least wash it with. 3. They don't allow you to bring anything inside, not even slippers (and the floor is very cold), towels, something to drink or eat (not even a small snack). Their argument might be hygiene, but read #2 and #4 4. There's no place to rest between spa pools, just some marble uncomfortable beds (and as mentioned you can't even put a towel on them, not even in the sauna, so you'll just have to sit in everyone else's sweat). 5. Some of the zones/saunas don't work or work incorrectly. For example, one of the pools was supposed to have 32 degrees hot water, but when I stepped into it I almost had a heart attack due to the water being freezing cold. 6. The hair dryers are on the walls and flow air vertically down, thus you need to stick your head on the wall so you can dry up. And much, much more. I'll never go back here again.
