We were hotel guest, so the visit was free for us. Not sure I would pay to enter. We did have a nice soak. The scenery was beautiful. We had fun going down the slide...all adults in our party. It was cold getting out and to the shower rooms. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Only a few people were... More

The NYTimes gave this pool a bum rap - it's actually a really nice place to relax with the locals (and hotel guests). Just make sure to check the opening times. During the weekdays (in the winter) it's only open between 3pm and 6pm.

Nice and warm pools and 2 hot tubs! Great even in the wintertime to float on the water in open air while it is even raining. So relaxing

The pool area was clean and excellent for relaxing after hiking in the area. Spent most of my time in the hot tubs.

Beautiful, unique experience. Lovely pool complex at the end of a valley an hour from the main road! Stay at the campsite.

We were staying at Hotel Husafell, so it made sense to use their pool as well. We used our hotel towels, but technically you could get a towel from the pool house as well. The change rooms are basic (no lockers, just hooks on the wall; showers can be tricky to use) and you do have to go outside for... More

Great clean fun pool. Rain or shine, this is a good one, as most are. Plenty of space and family friendly.

We were hotel guests. On a quiet evening after sightseeing it was lovely to sit outside with great views and relax in the waters.
