Unless you're local, it's a little pricey. Locals Tuesday is still $20 to enter the hot springs. If you stay in the time share, it's free. There are better options to just soak in a tub. The steam room is nice.

stayed for a week with timeshare exchange, well maintained resort but still need minor improvements; pools are well maintained but temperature of each pool (5 hot springs and 1 for swimming) is not consistent; customer service is outstanding.
