Very calm and relaxing atmosphere. Be warned – the facility looks like it’s falling apart and many of the walkways and shelters look like they’re falling apart, but the hot pools are wonderful – very low key, uncrowded, and relaxing. Change rooms but no lockers, no showers, but just $4 to soak in one of about 8 different pools. Be prepared for the broken-down look of the place, and for the dark, opaque water, and then enjoy yourself!
