Something not right?

Description

What a nice place. There are dozens of pools with different temperatures. Even if it's hot outside, the pools are worth a visit, because you can use them also in the evening and in the morning. We paid 15$ per person for entrance and overnight camping in our van. You can use the pools also the next day, maybe it's a one-time entrance fee and not per day. We will sleep here another night.
There are different bars, toilets and restaurants (but less vegetarian options).
You can use their Wifi.
However, the entire parking lot is quite crooked.

You can spend a night here, still 15$/ppn. Finding a level spot is difficult but you can do it in the evening when everyone left. Termas are nothing special, many pools are dirty or with cold water, but few are ok and warm/hot. You pay a 10% service fee even for a bottle of beer which they pass you over the bar without glass, no table service, which is ridiculous to me. But ok, at least the bottle was open 😂 good for a stop before the border crossing.

Avoid Sunday. The street to the termales is narrow and many shrubs and trees. At the ticket office the roof is about 3.5m, you have to go opposite the direction of travel to the very bumpy, uneven parking lot with many trees and cars. The termal bath is great, but the journey and the parking lot are not for large cars (we had a hard time with 28ft and 3.65h. Various low cables in the parking lot as well as on the access road.The parking lot is brightly lit at night and dog barking can be heard again and again. The party music was off from 10pm.

A nice short drive from the Guatemalan border if you end up crossing later in the day. A fun place to spend a day or two with a decent restaurant. I loved riding out the afternoon storms in a hot pool. the trick for finding a quieter, level place to camp is to drive up above the restaurant.

Came in the afternoon and enjoyed the pools and stayed overnight. the fee is still $15. After 7 pm you should be able to find the parking in the flat stop. password you can find from the restaurant. It was quite busy for the weekday.
Make sure to attend the Asoles, mud treatment and steaming and hot sulfur bath area. There is extra $10 ticket for the mud treatment area.Attendand will ask you for that before you apply mud on yourself.

The pools are nice but it is not a great place to stop. It was $30 to camp on very uneven ground. The food is super expensive if you manage to get some because the kitchen closes at 6.30pm...

This is a fantastic place, highly recommended! They provide in total 40! pools at different temperatures (from 36 up to 46! Celsius). No, the water is not dirty - it's natural thermal water, and so it might differ from the water you'll know from a chlorine pool! No, its not overpriced! 10 USD/ppn entrance fee + 5 USD/ppn for camping is a reasonable price for what you get. They let you camp at the upper parking above the restaurant, very quiet day and night! Max size to get there might be 6.50 meters in length and 3.50 meters in hight!

They now want 15$ pP for camping + entrance, no way to negotiate, at least for us. Water looks quite dirty so we didn't do it.

We ended up here because the other term had already closed and parking in the city should cost 'only' 20$. Came through quite well with our 24ft truck camper. Parking a bit crooked but went for one night. Cost 15 $pro person, and all terms we could use including bathroom. Terme is open all night, still quiet night

nice resort, very expensive but posh. after brief negotiation, they charged $10/pp. the employee asked cash and didn't provide reciept or a wristband so I'm not sure we were even official guests. stayed all day, the night and then briefly the next day. honestly probably don't even need to pay. good pools, expensive restaurant on site (they have 3 but only one open), locals are wealthier and better behaved, bathrooms are okay.

they have a camping zone near the entrance or you can find a flat spot in the parking lot like we did, puts you closer to the bathrooms. we cooked dinner in the rig and ate in one of the closed restaurants near the parking.

Very nice and clean place to relax. We parked at parqueo 2 and was able to get electricity from cabana "espana" (25m ext. cord). No water hookup. If you are independent off water and electricity you can stay quite and romantic at the small lake half way from the entrance to the thermales (there are outdoor showers but restrooms 3min walk). no WiFi. Mobil internet at this place is best with movistar (we had tigo which is generally good in SV but not there). Restaurant a little pricey. We payed 25$ per night. because the entrance fee is 10$/adults i guess you can not get it cheaper than 20$/night. may ask for the owner Marco who lifes there. the road to the place is about 2km gravel (but not bad and will be paved in the next 2 years)

Beautiful and different pools! They asked first 40 USD/night (10 entry fee for the pools/p., 10 for camping/p. on a parkingplace)!!! We spoke with the manager, 20 USD was the final result. The RV-neighbours paid 30 USD per night. The Manager visited us in the evening. He was very friendly. If we would stay longer, we should only pay the entry fee... Try your bargain skills ;-) The road was a gravel road, follow the signs "autobus". The place (thermales de alicante) is easier to reach.
