“Enjoyable wrap to the day”
Reviewed 25 February 2017

We went in late afternoon and stayed to just past sundown. Watching the evening light on the mountains in the distance was a nice plus.

It wasn't very cold when we were there (around 32F) but other than the first steps to enter the water we were never cold, the heat rising from the water kept the air around us warm.

The venue could use a bit of sprucing up but it hasn't crossed over to "run down" yet.

The visit was relaxing and a nice way to wrap up a busy trip by soaking tired muscles.

The only real negative is I am pretty certain an older Asian man now has a few photos of my wife's swimsuit cleavage in his photo collection (seriously long lens to be pointed downward and toward two strangers, namely us). After he left it was just other couples quietly enjoying the hot water and the evening calm.

Very well priced for a relaxing time.

This was a relaxing couple of hours we spent with the family. Both sides of the pool we great. Sure made my stiff back go away. Will definitely do this again.

“hot fun any time!”
Reviewed 15 February 2017

the hot springs are a truly relaxing experience and the pools are well maintained. One pool area for adults and kids to enjoy and a very convenient door which allows you to cross over to another pool area where the hot spring water is much warmer for the adults. Beautiful surroundings tress and mountains and extremely clean and well maintained! Large shower and locker area and when you are done you can enjoy a great meal in their very cozy restaurant. Easy parking
