We only did Sulpher spa but mud pools looked popular also, great clean & tidy hot pools with three pools available. Very friendly informative staff, great scenery & well priced definitely worth the short drive there. We went at 5.30pm was not crowded & had a pool to ourselves some of the time, would definitely try the twilight spa next time, place would be awesome all lit up at night.
