    The building was refurbished recently, although still keeps part of the decoration from last century in Mozarabic style. The cupola stands out, located in the mentioned Mozarabic area, as does the Roman tombstone from the end of the 1st century, and at the entrance of the thermal area the fountain is found, a replica of the Patio de los Leones fountain in the Alhambra, Granada.

    The Water

    The mineral-medicinal water of Balneario de Archena was declared as being of public interest in 1869. It is classified as a sulfurate-sulphate-chlorine-sodium-calcic water. It flows from the spring at a temperature of 52.5 ºC after having remained underground within the earth for 15,000 years. The properties of the water make for an excellent natural remedy for physical conditions as well as for recuperating the general well-being of the body.

    This water holds the capacity to provide the body with the rest and relaxation needed to improve the immunologic system, and to favour the maintenance and improvement of joints as well as the protection of skin against ageing. The beneficial effects to the body are recognised by the doctors and physiotherapists who prescribe the visits to the spa.

      I am more than happy to give you feedback on my recent stay at Balneario de Archena. It was wonderful! The hotel and the spa as a whole were outstanding in all areas, cleanliness, service, facilities, quality of food. I really cannot fault it. I would also like to commend you and your colleagues at SIS. You made the whole booking experience very easy and met all of our requirements. I have already recommended both SIS and Balneario de Archena to many friends and will continue to do so. We hope to return next year and we will of course be using your services to make our arrangements. Thank you all very much indeed.

      Very relaxing, rewarding and enjoyable experience. Tina was incredible. She helped me enormously especially in translating when needed. Staff were extremely warm and kind. Physiotherapy and the treatments – excellent. Swimming pool and facilities were very well maintained. Food was not always that good. However spoke to them and they listened and changed my diet accordingly.
