  • “We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Archena! The Hotel, facilities and treatment program were all fantastic. We just loved being surrounded by Spanish everywhere and it was great to taste a little bit of Spanish culture. It was also really good to be given such a great tour by Bettina in Termas Hotel at the start.”

  • “The setting of the hotels and spa in the gardens is very beautiful, also the hotel and the pools are very good, the breakfast was fine. But the sauna was a bit disappointing and cannot be compared to the big spa´s in Holland. I thought the clay treatments are very special and also the massage was excellent. However, to my opinion it was too massive and noisy and it lacked the relaxed atmosphere you would expect for a hotel like this. The room next to the entrance on the ground floor is quite noisy because everyone passes by. We could not get an upgrade to a Superior room on the river side because it was full, but I would recommend this though.”

  • “We had an absolutely amazing time! It felt like stepping back to Roman times - the staff were friendly and helpful and very competent therapists. My poorly knees have never felt so good! I'd like to come back regularly to top up my wellness! I agree with some of the Trip Advisor commenters that the food in the Thermas hotel does it no favours. The Thermalium Restuarant at the pools however is excellent. The Hotel Thermas does a great breakfast buffet but dreadful dinner. It's such a shame as we ate at the Thermalium restaurant at the pools 4 times and each time were really happy with the quality and imaginative use of ingredients, such as the goats cheese and walnut filo parcels or the steak with peppers and potato gratin.”
