  • The stay was wonderfully quiet and relaxing, because very few travelers went to the hot springs.

  • Is not necessarily worth the time to linger. The water is warm and relaxes a little, but not enough. Finally, there are large pools with children who swim and splash anyone, not really relaxing. The place is not very clean either, in short we could ignore.

  • The hottest pool is approx. 36 degrees is high season so there are many, too many visitors as foreigners we had fun in family
