Ideal for that quiet and relaxing stay away from the city. True to it's name, the pools are refreshingly warm ('Mapaso' in Waray dialect translates to warm in English).

Very much disappointed with what I have seen and experienced. Had to travel by car and then by boat (without outrigger which freaked my wife and children) for about 30 minutes. The hot spring was made into a small pool (better if converted into a jacuzzi), the large pool was very dirty and I have to stop swimming after two laps because I can't stand the taste of the water which is salty and bitter. Seems like the water never had any treatment at all. The scenery was horrible, well, there was actually no scenery at all. Not recommended for both local and foreign tourists. Better go to a nearby public pool and pay Php50 than go there and pay Php40 for the heck of getting wet. It is just a pool on a remote location.

This place is in the middle of a bush community, kids come up and watch you while you swim there is suppose to be red fresh water shrimp in there I seen none you have to walk a bit to get there from your car park , further on there is a resort with enclosed hot springs and a big swimming pool

However if you want a hot pool, with running water all over the place, mountain glades, a mountain river running through the place, a bar B Que pit, Toilets, a small shop selling cold drinks ( at a reasonable price ) then its all here at the Mapaso Hot springs.
