  • Bought a package on their website for entry to baths, saunas + a massage. Overall we really enjoyed our day there. The baths are beautiful and very enjoyable. We really liked the large connected outdoor pool facing the beach, lake & mountains with various nice water features. The sauna experience was nice, though we wished there was a hot sauna that wasn't so bright. The sauna relax room could benefit from a real door rather than a curtain because there's a lot of noise coming in from the passage of people in front of it. The 50 minute massage was nice though as I felt it was a little too gentle, I kindly asked if it was possible to have a little more pressure and was told it was not possible because the massage was standard and everyone needed to receive the same treatment. I've had lots of massages in lots of circumstances and it's the first time I don't see a therapist and their management keen to adapt the massage to the customer's taste. Finally, the website is really confusing. So many packages with slight nuances between the different options and you have to click through each to get the description. A la carte would be much simpler, and if you're keen on offering packages, please have a table that clearly shows what each package contains vs. the others and a la carte to make it much easier to choose.
  • I leave two stars for the other times I came here and was happy. Today was a disaster, first of all, on a Friday (weekday) it was SO crowded, never seen that place like this, even tough I checked the occupancy on their website which seemed okay at the time of looking at it. My partner and I purchased the extra sauna entry (6chf) and it was so busy that we decided not to go, people everywhere, we tried two times but it was insane and no privacy at all, a pity. I think the number of entrances at the sauna should be controlled to a max number of people( 20 probably), it felt like the only one making profit of it is the business and not the client enjoying the experience. Second thing I do not understand is how come children are accepted in this kind of places, there is the Lido next door with toboggans and an outdoor warm pool for both parents and children so why letting kids in the Salini? Even small ones were there, some playing, splashing and swimming underwater with goggles. At this point why can I not bring my camera or phone? What does it change? Really annoying and definitely not relaxing at all. The amount of people make the place so loud. Third, the main pool is just warm. I had shivers staying outside and felt really uncomfortable as well as my partner. It used to be much warmer. Maybe they are saving on energy and money I don't know. And last of our terrific day, the ice cream we had for lunch was expired since two months and ate it all before noticing it. They offered the lunch thankfully and kindly told me to go to the hospital if we felt sick and have some tests done to make sure it is a food poisoning. Well, I went many times to this place and this time I felt like I had to say something as it was a real disappointment. If it was my first time I would have rate it 1 star. Don't feel like coming back any time soon.
