However the 4 stars are giving because of the service; we order food from the restaurant in there. The server was ok however a lot of effort to... More

This is essentially a public pool with lots of people and very loud. The water is refreshing. Its not the place to go for an idyllic peaceful swim. If you're after that go to Laguna Apoyo near Granada.

Cool place and the hotspot for a lot of locals. The water is fresh and there is a nice little swing to jump in the water. With a scooter it's easy to reach

We spent an hour or two swimming in the large pool and generally hanging out. They have a nice cafe with cocktails and food. They also have a Tarzan swing and nice lounge chairs. This is a great place to escape the heat of the day and relax in a lush place that has some added amenities. From where the... More

Nice and relaxing place! It is one of the tourist attractions in Ometepe. The water although a bit cold, is clear and if feels nice on a very hot day.

It is a nice place but really crowded and the restaurant over there is expensive and do not offers the best food. We prefered having a swim in the lake :)

Probably my favorite part of Ometepe. Beautiful pool with everyone having fun made a great atmosphere. I did the swing jump into the pool at least 3 times. Gotta try the Coco Loco if you go!

My friend and I rented a scooter through our hostel and drove out here. It's a great place to stop by for a few hours but that's it. It gets really busy during high season. I will say it was refreshing and beautiful. It's a natural spring pool and the water is super clear. Beware that it is shaded and... More

Very nice, but pending on the time of year - too busy. A lot like a swimming pool that is freshwater fed. If you have the time great, but don't make a highlight

This is just a giant pool with room temp water. The water is beautiful, but doenst seem like any thermal pool. The stairs are full of algae and very slippery. You would not miss anything special if you did not make it to this place. There is entry fee, the restrooms are dirty... all in all it was a okayish... More
