Palatinus Strandfurdo - Review
Palatinus Strand is easily one of the oldest water recreational options available in Budapest. It opened as a beach in the year 1919 on the banks of Danube. Soon after that it was converted into an open bath in the year 1921 and till date continues to function as one. It became so popular with people, that it had to be extended in 1937 and today its popularity has grown almost three fold. Palatinus Bath is no more only an open air bath. It has a supply of thermal springs from the Margit Island. It also has playgrounds, parks and slides for kids to play on. You will also come across a large wave pool which is another highlight of this place. It is a great place to come across Hungarians as well as tourists- as it is popular between both the groups.

Palatinus Strandfurdo, Budapest Reviews
Oh my God! An interesting cultural experience but a horrifying pool experience. Avoid it all costs on a hot weekend day. Might be better on a weekday. I wanted to speak to the manager about a problem, the cashier said "let's not make him upset, he is already having a hard day". So I couldn't speak to him/her. As I said interesting "cultural experience ".
We have only been here for three hours in the afternoon (4.30-7.30pm) but we found that three hrs were actually good enough for what we needed. It was not as crowded at these hours as in early afternoons. They offer a 3 hours ticket for 2300 HUF (plus you have to pay a deposit). We have used the outside lockers to put our belongings in it (it works with the watch you are given). There are many pools to chose from and it is suitable for children as well. There is even an indoor swimming pool with some fun things for the littlest ones. Outside there is a swimming pool for swimmers, a wave swimming pool which is so much fun and many other different pools with streams of water and some circulation which have us a lot of fun-filled moments. I think it is well worth the money!
This place was confusing and not at all as good as I expected. The showers in our locker room was out of order, so people just walked in without washing first, that seemed a little unpleasant. It was crowded too, but to be fair we did go there on a hot Saturday afternoon. Okay cleanliness and fine toilets, but no toilet paper which I thought was strange. Good pools, lots of room for everybody. Nice staff. I wouldn't go there again to be honest. But I think it would be a nice family location - bring food and drinks.
Great place to bring the family for a few hours or most of a day. Entrance fees are reasonable and there are many food options inside. The Mexican place makes the best salsa we've tasted in Europe. There's a pool tile missing here and there but that did not take away from our enjoyment.
This was a pleasant afternoon out. There are numerous pools all close together, with varying temperatures. There were quite a few people there, but there was more than enough room for everyone. They also offer food and drinks if you’re after them. The prices are a bit high, but there are plenty of food places outside, so it’s not like you don’t have other options.
