Thermal park is suitable all visitors. Part of Thermal park is Harmonia wellness and spa and it was one of the best wellness places for us.

Overpriced swimming pool with lousy Slovak service.

We visited Besenova. We booked tickets online. On arrival there was a queue of 1,5 - 2 hours... because their system had a failure. Some people even had to pay again because there tickets weren't recognized and apply for a refund later. Very lousy service.
Instead of making proper arrangements, especially with regards to Corona Disease. Nothing happened. People were left in an overcrowed queue. The poor employes did not have any backing of their superiors and were mostly ignorant. Besenova really needs to be fined for this.

When we finally entered we discovered they have surcharge for everything. They even sell you. For every water attraction you have to wait in line. Except if you pay 3 euro's - then you are entitled to skip the line. It took me some time, since it somehow felt like a fairly liberal free market behaviour. However if you think twice. They are actually selling your time, without paying you. This was just one of the anoying over-commercialized characteristics of the aquapark.

Next to half of the place is a construction site. They are building a new hotel right in the middle of Besenova. So almost everywhere there are fences etc. for the construction.

We will not go here again.

How to start... its a good place to have a fun or just sweet relax. Nearly before and after high season is a great time, but in high season its typical Svk biznis. Parking on the field - real crosscountry, no free sunbeds, no free lockers... the prices of food and beverages are crazy. For example, ice cream on Monday 0.80 eur on Tuesday 1.20 eur, what a great biznis.

Having two kids aged 3 and 5, we were looking for waterparks and Besenova was a great experience. Nestled between the lower Tatras and Liptowska Mara, this top facility can be used both in winter and summer with great indooor space and outdoor too.
We stayed outdoor and the kids enjoyed their dedicated space with slides, hotwater, river stream pool, music and enterteinment. For the grown up you can enjoy the pleasure of termal healing water while sipping an icey drink from Cosmopolitan Bar. Lots of restaurant, grill and bar.
You need to go once to realize the extent of this facility for all ages.
Really well done guys.
Highly recommended

In the beginning I was of the opinion that 24 EUR for ticket seems to quite high, but then if you realize the number of attractions, then the view is changed. Few thermal external pools with the water of up to 36 or up to 40. The 40 one was too hot for me. Then we have inside zones. The small kids zone and also slightly bigger one with 1 slide. then going next to it, very nice relaxing zone. Going further the huge pool withe waves and and climbing wall. At the end few slides in separate area. We were on Sunday and there was no crowd at all.

Today (03.03.2020) me and my boyfriend visited Besenova aqua park. My boyfriend had a ski pass and go pass card but due to the rain he didn't ski so we decided to go to Besenova thermal pool. At the entrance we asked if someone speaks English or Ukrainian or Russian as we don't understand local language. Consultant told us nobody speaks the languages mentioned above and showed us where to buy a ticket. There were a lot of people and when we finally reached the place to buy a ticket the woman at the desk didn't reply in any of the mentioned above languages, took the gopass card, we saw the information on her PC display and she told us to pay the price for two tickets. It seemed to us that on the official website it was written that if we have a gopass card but we didn't ski then the pass to Besenova should be free. But as we don't know local language we could not ask the lady to explain if we were right. We entered aqua park and noticed inside the brochure where it was written that the ticket had to be really free according to the rules of go pass system. We came back to the information desk on the way back after swimming where we found new young English speaking girl. We explained the problem to her and she called another woman that immediately started to blame us, telling that this is our problem that we payed twice instead of having passed for free as per go pass system. We showed a ticket and told they can check the timing of payment, ticket details and even check the cameras to prove that we payed cash but the answer of Besenova representative was "we are not going to play detectives and we will not give you back your money, this is your fault". The behavior of staff was very rude and impolite, nobody even told us "sorry", they were just blaming and blaming us not caring that we are foreign clients who payed them extra money by mistake. After this case there is no desire to come back to this aqua park. Never again. I strongly recommend future tourists not to visit Besenova aqua park if you don't want to be cheated and disrespected.

As native slovakian, I regularly and since years visit this & other thermal baths.
The only issue is that although the whole place is definitely better looking than years ago, and has more attractions and procedures, the communist spirit is still present.
A acqua- day without sauna and jacuzzi access is pretty expensive (36€) for what it offers. Outside thermal pools (with the smelly curative water) are great and come with different temperatures, shapes and massage jets that alternate so that everybody can have their own turn. The new Cosmopolitan bar in the middle of one hot thermal pool is a good idea and have bigger choice of alcohol then any average supermarket. If you are abstinent, u better bring ur own drinks from home:)))
Food is good and generous, thai masseuses professional and great. Procedures have the same price as the luxury ones in the center of Milan, which is surprising, given that it’s more a wholesale- place than a specialized beauty saloon.
What this place misses more is the staff’s enthusiasm and professionalism: it looks like they are forced to work and won’t do anything that is not specifically written on their contract.
A cleaning lady won’t advise u where to find water cuz it’s not her job. Girls at the caffè bar would chat on phones and won’t clean their tables because it’s a “self service place so if u wish to have ur table clean, do it by yourself.”
There is a small shop at the entrance which rent and sells towels, flipflops or anything u may need. Note that if u rent a towel or bathrobe, u will have to bring it back before 5pm because the shops closes and doesn’t care that u paid for a 1 day rent, as the thermal park closes at 9pm.
On some days the park instead of being a relaxing spot becomes a mix of pic nic and although food is prohibited in pool areas, u will witness entire families bringing their own baskets of food, biting on enormous sandwiches, cutting steaks and drinking soups from glass jars. Then they occupy all the long chairs available with their pillows and blankets and SLEEP and snore. Only a travel pocket TV next to their foot is needed to complete this surreal habit. There is not a common sense of sharing, caring, empathy or anything altruistic in this place, and even if this is surely not only the waterpark’s fault, the employees should collaborate on helping to keep this place what it was meant to be: clean relaxing corner of the world.
The music may result loud a bit, and especially on holidays it’s a new-born spot so forget to relax, children are screaming and running in all directions and u stumble on strollers.
I loved the procedures but again: slovakia isn’t famous for carrying about other’s well being and details. We want to be “modern” so we hire thai girls, and then we do not provide such a simply things like privacy or choice. Expect ur massage to be in a small room with clear glass door , people passing, noises and talks, and sun from the rooftop window in ur eyes. Now try to relax lol.
Also the cosmetic pretty expensive procedures use any random cheap product I won’t mention but those famous for parabens, animal testing, microplastics and so on. That’s not very logical for a “natural thermal bath” place.
The sauna world has a beautifully furnished sauna with funny and healthy rituals, waterfalls, jacuzzis and so on. The interior designer did his best here and it’s a pleasant place (from 16y up). Do not forget u will have to relax, bath, sit and walk completely NAKED here, as we, Slovakians, appreciate the nature and a direct contact with it. Or maybe we just do not like surprises and want to see what the opposite sex has to offer :)))

Been there twice and it was great. There are pools and slides for all ages, hot mineral pools outside, petting zoo, waves pool, and many water slides. There are multiple activities for kids as well. The food there is OK at most though.
