Not as nice as the blue lagoon in Iceland but when in there you can imagine it being Roman times. We pre booked the beer spa where you sit in wooden tubs with a beer tap at the end. Quite a nice...

The place was big with many baths with different temperatures. The baths are child friendly, meaning they are not deep nor dangerous. There are inside and outdoor pools. The outdoor pools had fountains and swirls, which was fun. We arrived in the morning and left in the evening and enjoyed every second. We also had a massage, which was very relaxing and super professional. The prices for massage were quite expensive compared to Hungarian prices. We also enjoyed a meal there. The meals were delicious but they served only in plastics and paper plates, which wasn't pleasant with chicken curry. Generally, we enjoyed this experience and would definitely come again for this.
It's nice. There are 3 main pools (outdoors) and the rest are small but good. You need to take a towel and flip flops with you. The view is nice for pictures. If you want to swim don't forget your swimming cap. I would have recommended myself to bring food, water and a bathrobe.
