The complex can seem daunting, but staff are helpful. Wonderful 50 metre outdoor pool and hot tubs at varying temps, plus an ice tub at 5 to 8 degrees. One of the hot tubs is a jacuzzi which effectively gives massages. Jets sense you sitting...More

Went on a rainy, windy day. It has a fun waterslide. Unfortunately we didn't do many of the pools as we didn't easily see them and it was too cold to walk around to try to find them. The children's pool was unfortunately closed when...More

Great place to relax in the hot pools, especially in as seniors over 67 get in for free. Bring ID with date of birth. Towels and swim suits can be hired for a fee. The salt water not pool is especially good.

There are swimming pools all over the city. We choose this location because it was near us and it offered the hot spa. It was a great way to relax after a horse ride. You can rent towels and swimwear.

Nice place to spend some hours at the evening. Has several hot baths with different temperatures of water. As well outdoor (heated) and indoor pools. Steam sauna. Still that place is built a long time ago and not in good shape.

There are many parts to this outdoor swimming pool which is open all year. In the winter when it snows it's really great to be outside in a geothermal pool with snow falling. It's ever warm but for those who want more there are hot...More

I brought a microfiber towel with me. I do seem to recall that you can rent a towel as well. Make sure to pack soap and shampoo- -only bathroom hand soap provided.
