    Ambiance is nice, pools always get crowded fast. The people who go are pretty diverse, and unfortunately people bring their kids so it kinda kills the relaxing vibe with their constant splashing.

    Great Korean spa. Go on weekdays when children are less likely to be there. Baths are nude. Guys side can get little cruise-y if you are into that but for the most part it's chill. Food is great!

    Tragically, this Queens facility no longer serves hard alcohol on the premises, though you can still score beer and wine at its Acqua Beauty Bar, along with virgin "mocktails" poolside. Read more

    Have to say that I enjoyed myself. The saunas are great, the drinks were worth the money & the pool was relaxing. Could've done without the full frontal nudity and screaming kids though. Will go back!

    You can easily spend a full day at Spa Castle...... A great experience I will surly repeat. That said, bring your own towel or robe ( or get one for $4) the provided 'uniform' is both sad and uncomfy

    2nd floor pools have numerous bubble jets, water sprayers, and fountains. be alert when starting them up the first time - they can be surprisingly forceful

    Look down from the third floor at the pool and it's reminiscent of the iconic Weegee photos of Coney Island but crammed into leisure suit Larry's dream home. It is awesome and an acceptable rip off.
