I DO NOT recommend coming here if you are visiting PVR! After checking the website & seeing other 1 star reviews that I completely agree with I noticed if you are a foreigner a locker or a room will be double the price than for locals.As the website states;Locales * LOCKER 200 pesos con INE de Banderas Bay* CABINA 350 / no time limit /Meanwhile a locker is 400 pesos and a room is 550 pesos with a 4 hour time limit if you aren’t local!Also NOT a safe space for trans men nor older folk apparently…This equates to inequality of other persons and goes against the acceptance expected across the LGBTQ+ 🏳️‍🌈 community.

If you’re looking for a good time with both locals and visitors this is a must go destination! Friendly staff, good mix of people and totally chill vibe. For best “results” I recommend going midnight or after. 😉 For several years I’d been going after the beach around 6PM because someone had told me it was a good time to go. It was always a mediocre at best experience. On my recent trip someone different told me to go late night so I went at 12:30 AM. Immediately on arrival I was amazed how different and busy it was. The energy was amazing. I had the best time I’ve ever had at any “spa” in my entire life! I will only go after midnight moving forward and I can’t wait to go back on my next visit to Puerto Vallarta. 😈

The place is beautiful and well run. I go to relax on the roof top lounge. The place is very clean. It is a bit pricey at 500.00 nmp. The house music is too loud. I do not like the fact the staff has no filter on the mouth. It seems others know about my travel plans. When you take the money, be silent. 🤔

For best “results” I recommend going midnight or after. 😉 On my recent trip I discovered I had been going at a slower time - 6PM - because someone told me to years ago. I had the best time I’ve ever had in my entire life after midnight ! I will only go at that time moving forward. I can’t wait to go back on my next visit to Puert Vallarta. 🙏

Professionally run by fully accommodating and competent staff. Clean rooms, play area and video lounge. Amenities you won't see at U.S. Club - Rooftop Bar, Rooftop Pool, Rooftop Lounge chairs all Towel optional. Contrary to other review I've been there many times and NEVER over charged. Can get pass to leave and return... like to go eat dinner.

Charging 10 pesos to charge your phone. Charging you to come in because you forgot your glasses, telling you to f off, telling you to stay in Dallas,extra hidden charges, seems they love foreign money but not foreigners one look at these responses from the owner and I definitely would advise all foreigners not to go here don't spend your money where your not wanted

Went through the comments sections just to get an understanding of how this company treats individual and all I could do is laugh at how absolutely unprofessional,ill mannered and egotistical the psychopath responding at the comments is. When tourists stop coming to your establishment and country you'll be the first to complain and wonder tourists are already going to others country so you'd think you'd be a bit more respectful but clearly you aren't too bright I highly suggest you all go somewhere else this business doesn't respect you or your money

Disappointed and hurt that trans men are not welcome; I wish we had been able to stay and enjoy. What a humiliating, mean experience. If you care about dignity and equal rights for LGBTQ individuals, please help me by 1) avoiding this place until they change their policy and 2) telling them you are doing so. Trans men are men.

Good news attractive clients, everything in working order. No one cleaning and opening 4 when ad said 2 issues for me but please even if sandals they give you wrong size or they say they are, wear or you will get baby warning as in baby waving at your bare feet.

Update 2, Pride WeekendSunday check in, May 29th, 2023, and check out Monday morning May 30th, around 3 AM. I declined a gratuity and the 2 guys at the credit card asked me why. I told because I was recently over charged. The shortest guy with a silver necklace asked me why I come back. I said I have always enjoyed this place and he told me to “F off”. Owner needs do address this immediately. You don’t tell customers to “F off” unless you want another bathhouse in town.————-Update, Pride weekend 2023. Saturday morning check out (around 3 AM), May 26th, check out May 27th, 2023. On check out, the person tried to charge me for a water that I did not have. My total bill was 650 for entrance and 440 on exit. After I told the person, I didn’t have a water today, he then told me I will be charged 200 pesos for extra time for the cabana. During this time, his coworker was going thru the signed receipts, none found of course! He said there is a 4 hour limit on rooms Just an fyi in the time limit for rooms. Check your bills!!!!!————Previous reviewWhen I left and checked out in the morning, person(s) tried to charge me over 300 pesos. I explained I only had a water for 40 pesos. Typically, I spend up to up to $100 on a visit on admission, lube, and poppers. I asked what was charged, but no response. Are the employees charging erroneous fees for themselves? Bill was corrected immediately with no dispute, Watch what they are charging you and dispute if necessary. I don’t mind paying more that Chicago steamworks,, but let’s ensure the staff is charging the proper amount in exit.

Very fun place . Lots of hot guys and different rooms to play , the pool is cool and top deck , I have 2 complains. The guy in charge in the front is got mayor attitude, and 550 pesos for a room with broken mirrors and no sheets is too much

I’ve been here more than a time or two over a few years. I love Spartacus! I’m not a twenty something twink or a buff gym rat but I’ve always been treated with respect and a smile by the staff. All the bitter queens need to STFU! Seriously. I have never been overcharged and I think the place is extremely clean given what goes on. Again, nothing I would change. 500 pesos for a locker may be a bit steep but if you can’t afford it then don’t go. Seems simple enough.

I actually liked this place, but not the way they treat the bear community. They love our money tho. Almost doubled the usual weekend price to 500 pesos JUST because it was bear weekend. You’d think they’d at least spring for large towels… but the worst was just closing at 3am on a Saturday night and throwing everyone out just for a separate Bear party. For a business that is just recovering from a fire and Covid, I expected we would ALL be welcomed ALL weekend. Disappointing money grab. No other gay business in PV does this. It was pathetic.

I was at this sauna January 2, 2023. This place is over priced and aimed to robbed the tourist. I pay $29 dollars to get in. They don’t accept credit cards “efectivo “ cash only. I was charge $10 for an extra towel and I was charged 30 pesos for using the wall-electric-outlet to charge my phone!!!.The facility not worth the $29 dollars. I travelled all over the world and I never seen or heard a business charging for charging a cell phone.Doesn’t look to be a clean place either.

Unless if you look like a rich, old, white, man, you don't matter. I went in on my bday for some fun, I guess I'm hideous there. Whatever, I know my worth. They can read, I guess like I said, I guess I'm hated because I can spell.

I was here on a Friday evening around 7. So many men. I wasn't expecting this many people in a small tourist city. I have been to many saunas around the world, this place was definitely something.

No warning of lights going completely off on the 2nd floor at 1:30am for a 2am closing. Manager was unfriendly. Closing time should be listed as 1:30am and not 2am because 2nd floor is unusable when lights are completely off.

This place could make so much more money, considering it's a getaway for rich gay men... it's so huge, that even if theres 1000 people inside, maybe they wont meet each other? Gay guys love the dark places, but its useless when you hace 1000 dark places to explore inside. And yes, you have to pay extra to have a cabin... but wait, will u go back if u paid extra and in the end you didnt meet anyone? Such a waste of good business.

I find it so so.+ staff was nice+ gets nicely crowded+ large enough- the crowd really isn’t that great- the actual action space is a little too separated / odd space to get people together.- the largest part of the darkroom is so dark that you can’t even tell if you’re about to run into someone, yet alone seeing whether you’re attracted to them.

If I could give this place 6 stars out of 5, I would. Huge, beautiful, modern, clean facility with comprehensive amenities, including a bar and a beautiful rooftop patio/pool. Unquestionably the nicest men's sauna I've ever enjoyed. Friendly service and an endless parade of gorgeous guys.

Great place to get away. My only concern is the number of cameras filming throughout the property. I'm talking locker room showers etc... At one point while grabbing a water i got a peek of staff gathering around the screen to watch footage from a shower stall. I hope there's no leaks from this place. Other than that, friendly staff and a good time.

Despite the shady iron gate and narrow stairs up, the reception area and staff greet you with friendly and judgement free customer service that puts you to rest if nervous or discrete. Quick 400 pesos for non locals, you get a sarong, towel, and slippers for that price as well as a locker with key and key band.The facilities smell and appear clean.It's a bit cavernous, which is good, and alot of space is given to the private rooms, but as someone who's not a sauna guy I was impressed and surprised.

First bathhouse experience and it was super accommodating and comfortable. I loved the steam room, roof top pool and the hot tub.

This place is not your average "bathhouse". First of all - it's very clean and doesn't have the sort of sketchy feel you have when you go to other similar places.The hot tub area is very nice and relaxing with ample room to keep your distance from others if you wish. They have a waterfall feature which is a nice touch.They have two wet saunas - when I went one had a nice pore opening essential oil that may have been eucalyptus. The other didn't seem to have that and that one had several guests more focused on socializing. It was good to have two options. They have your standard dry sauna as well.The "dark room" was a scaled down version of your typical gay bathhouse maze with the expected appointments. When I went this area was not very busy but I can imagine it would be at different hours.One thing I found unique about this place is that it has a bar on its rooftop where you can socialize and enjoy cocktails. Some people come here just for that.Price wise this place is extremely inexpensive and this means you don't feel like if you pay to get in that you have to stay for hours. You can pop in check it out relax for a short time and go if you wish.All in all this is one of the best bathhouses I have been to and I would definitely recommend checking it out if you are visiting Puerto Vallarta. Will definitely return again!

Generally, i have enjoyed it in the past. Can't tell this year, because apparently I'm too old. Maybe that should be featured prominently on the website, or at least at the entrance, before going through the health protocol (where my numbers were fine). I get it, but let's not waste each other's time. And get front desk clerks who can read ID. I had to tell him my DOB. Had I known...

Loved the place. I visited it yesterday. However it turned out to be a bad experience. Left my sunglasses in the locker and when i went back to request staff to check the locker, he wanted to charge me 100 pesos to get in. After I insisted, he allowed me to check it and of course the sunglasses were not there. The staff said they did not find anything in the locker. I went back after talking to the manager over the phone. He said there were 2 sunglasses in their lost and found. I went back to check them and sadly they weren't my sunglasses. So just a warning if you are going in here, make sure you don't forget anything because you most likely will not get it back.
