Our scheduled visit to Caldeira Velha had been cancelled due to heavy rains the night before and a local suggested we come here. This is by no means a luxury spa, but for 3 euros per person, one can soak in 36 degree water in the 2 rectangular baths, surrounded by beautiful foliage. There are change rooms and toilets but no shower. We were happy with our visit.

Way too busy, even for off season. Felt like I was in a fish bowl as it’s in middle of provincial park so everyone taking photos of you. Take the extra drive to furnas hot springs

The lady at the entrance was incredibly unfriendly! I have rarely seen such unmotivated staff.

The spa is getting on in years, which you may or may not like. Very small, nothing special at all.

The price-performance ratio, on the other hand, is absolutely fine.

The visit in the morning was worth it, as there were few people. But I won't be back for sure.

During our stay on Sao Miguel we tried a few Hot Springs. This one is a smaller one but at only 3€ a person it is worth a visit.

Ther are only 2 hot water basins and unlike some others the water is not yellow.

Being a smaller location the place is not busy or overbooked.

If in the area drop in.

We went to the spot for walking track that is starting and ending near spa building. It wrote on the building that it was built in 1811! The spa has a poll with running spring hot water. The pool is not big but we were only 2 couples in it. There are also private rooms for mud wrapping and massages. We really enjoyed the peaceful vibe of the place, the Mountain View and flowers around. The entrance fee is only 3 Euro and opposite the nice restaurant is situated.the staff is very friendly and the changing rooms are clean and nice.

The thermal pools on Sao Miguel can be a bit crowded in season. These small pools do not draw crowds. It is worthwhile to pay a few Euros and go to the private small pool through a small building that has a dressing room and some privacy. Some days you might be the only ones in the pool there. The manager is very friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant across the street that had a lot of customers (we didn't eat there), so might be good.

Because the road to Ferraria was closed due to a landslide, my tour guide recommended this rustic spa in an off the beaten path location. The drive to Caldeiras was lovely and the cobblestone road was lined by the unusual plane trees with their camouflage bark and angular branches. At the end of the road is a very small village which apparently, at one time, was a get away destination for the wealthy citizens of Sao Miguel. Sadly, the remnants of these beautiful homes are dilapidated but still face the town. One new restaurant exists and is surrounded by these crumbling homes. Multiple trailheads can be found beginning here. The small spa is simple, rustic and cozy. The menu options are limited. I opted for a relaxing massage with a local pineapple mask. The rooms are small and lined with wood panels. The massage table was simple and firm. In the room was a deep concrete tub filled with the local warm spring water. The room was dark and lit with candles and overhead music was piped into the room. The therapist performed a basic Swedish type massage which was followed by the face mask. Afterwards, I soaked in the private tub. I had the option of going into the hotter public pool behind the building but the thought of trying to put on my one piece bathing suit while wet was not appealing. I could also hear people in the pool and I preferred a solitary experience. The bathrooms are nice but I did not see a shower. This is not the spa at the Mandarin Oriental so if you are looking for an upscale experience, this is not the place for you. Otherwise, I would recommend this spa since it is not crowded, charming in its rustic-ness and an ethereal beauty to the crumbling facade of the houses in this out of the way village.

We came in after a hike and luckily no other persons were around. The one and only pool had 38.5C which is quite hot on a sunny day. Price is 3€|person which is ok for the pool and service.

This is an out of the way place, off the beaten path, so not a lot of people, not a touristy place.

Bathrooms are nice, springs are very very hot.

Enjoyed being there but not sure I would go back, just not enough for me here.
