GPRO Valparaiso Palace & Spa
Now THIS is what you call a HOTEL! Initial word that comes to mind is Opulence. We were impressed right from the get go! The front entrance had us like wow…okayyyy. Upon exiting the taxi, we stepped out to stare at a large picturesque waterfall right at the bottom of the entrance steps. Once you hit the top of the stairs, BOOM… you’re stepping onto marble floors with high gold columns in the foyer.
We tried and used absolutely everything – had to make sure we got our moneys worth! We kid you not, there were so many different facilities available and that’s without even adding additional services such as massages, etc.
❀ Advised step by step
- Warming up phase: Salt inhalation bath, Steam room, Herbal bath and Sauna
- Cooling down phase: Sensory showers, Kneipp foot walk, Reflexology basin, Ice fountain
- Relaxing phase: Relaxation area, Mediation area
This was such an amazing and relaxing experience, we opted for the evening session which started at 5:30 and finished at 9:30. We spent a total of 4 hours in the spa and enjoyed every last minute of it. The €40 session excluded massages and individual treatments but we weren’t too fussed about this as from the reviews as well as pictures, we could see that the free spa facilities looked fantastic and would be more than enough to keep us occupied.
As soon as we paid for our session we were handed a bathrobe, slippers and a bottle of water which was a nice touch. We were then directed to the changing rooms where we could prep for our spa session and lock away personal items.
There were only a handful of people at the spa which meant that the facilities were not overcrowded and allowed us to explore as well as enjoy each treatment without waiting in a queue The salt inhalation bath seemed to be the most popular amongst customers, we still didn’t have to queue but it was a lot busier than all the other facilities.
All facilities were clean and fully functioning! In addition to the steam rooms, baths, sensory area and relaxation zone, there was also an indoor pool equipped with extra relaxation functions such as the jacuzzi area and massage rails. The indoor pool was a little chilly but bearable. For the pièce de résistance, the main pool led to an outdoor heated pool which was so tranquil.
❀ Key points to note:
- No pictures are allowed in the spa (we risked it all to get you an insight and authentic review!)
- This is not a clothes are optional spa! Nudity is not allowed.
This was 100% great value for money! Even though we enjoyed a relaxing 4 hours in GPRO Valparaiso Palace Hotel, we could have happily stayed there longer. We highly, highly, highly recommend this spa!
