This place is a SCAM, A RIP OFF, A DUMP! Don't take my word for it, here are some reasons from the top of my head: 1. Regardless of what type of shorts/etc you have, they're not ok, staff tells you "sorry you're not allowed in those. But don't worry! You can buy the correct ones from our boutique!" but... More

We tried to visit the baths today but we're disappointed to find they were closed now until December. They closed on 21st August. What a pity that neither the web site or tourist information web site advise this. Quite a few people were turning up today not aware of the closure

It was renewed about 7 years ago in order to welcome more people and the result is very good.. even if the wood of the complex already begin to... More

This very nice spa was well above expectations! Even though we came in high season and it was quite busy it was a pleasure to use all the facilities. We travelled two families with 5 kids aged between 8-13. They enjoyed the warm outdoor pool the most with its maze like shape and fountains. The big indoor pool with a... More

Recommended by our travel rep this Thermal Spa must be experienced. 38 degree exterior water offers a very pleasant way to relax after a day on the slopes. Whilst not cheap we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will definitely return when next skiing in the area. A free bus service (Ski Bus) runs between the valley villages and drops... More

It started with me having to wait more than 10mn on the phone to make a reservation. That was annoying. It's one of the fundementals of customer service: answer before 3 rings. Just saying. I then called again, the young lady was cordial but not capable of anticipating the info that would be needed: "May I pick a massage from... More

The place is ok, but not as good and relaxing as it will be in any Austrian or German sauna. Water in the pool outside was quite cold so most of people had to be inside, the place is ok but deferentially not worth 18,5 plus 7 eur for 2 hour (you have to play separately for sauna and hammam...

The Thermal center is good but I would advise to train the receptionists to pay more attention to foreign tourists:particularly explain well where the wardrobe is and how it works and what is more important the men can't wear shorts only swim slips or boxers! Yes, this is written on the wall but in small letters, and not all foreigners... More

We went here when it was raining & we didn't want to ski. Had the 2 hour option which was ample for our needs. We took advantage of all the pools, even the extreme cold plunging pool! So pleased we went. The only down side was when we went for coffees afterwards, nothing wrong with the drinks but had to... More
