Very nice and relaxing experience . View is beautiful to the valley. The facility of the place are minimalistic, but sufficient. Lockers are available and changing rooms. The outside pool was quiet around 14h when we visited.

At the end of a dusty track the baths are like small concrete swimming pools which were all in need of a good clean

We decided against entering the pools but for a very small fee we wandered around the area. There is a bridge over the river with gardens that we explored in solitude as everyone else was in the water.

The tour offered us this activity so we said to try it. The location is ok, the conditions are ok but i would recommend to go there only if you have some hours to waste.
