“So relaxing”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

We went there twice over an 8 day period. The staff were friendly, for the price we thought the use of the sauna, steam room, swimming pool, spa, showers was good value. Both of us had a few aches and pains and the use of the hot areas fixed us up a treat. Very relaxing and totally enjoyable.

“Very good swimming complex, nice walks/bike rides nearby”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

Excellent outdoor 50m pool, indoor kids pool and fun pool and dive pool and teaching pool and 25m lap pool. Could be forgiven for going there and not even noting the 50m and 25m pools - need to walk around and past fun pools to find.
Bonus proximity to Botanical gardens with bush and river walks (good running tracks) and sealed bike path (Palmerston North is amazing for cycling with cycle lanes everywhere, very courteous drivers, and nearby hills for a good workout)

“Thoughts on Lido”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

This is a lovely complex it has a wonderful inside pool. then a hydro slide for the kids. Then there is the lovely spa pool with the strong jets good temperature and really relaxing. They have a sauna and steam room. there is the well used gym there which is equipped with a lot. there is a very small paddling pool for young babies and another pool which is not so deep as big one. There is a coffee shop inside but leaves a bit to desire i do not use it been twice and thought to expensive and not worth it. But i love the pool and spa a pool which goes round like a bend is good to use. there is an outside pool with all things needed diving board for those who like to to that.. They have a pool where they give swimming lessons for children . then a pool for those enthusiasts who do heaps of laps. There is a nice changing room with showers for women and men and then the family one. It is a nice place to spend time. on a Friday night they have a special night for the children where they have a lot of fun. There is special chair lift for a person from a wheel chair to go into spa. You may get passes saving you money like for 50 visits 20 visits etc.

“Lido”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

The Lido is situated next to the amazing Esplanade so you can do both at the same time. There are Indoor pools and slides and for the more serious swimmer the outdoor pools and diving boards are for enjoyment or training and are not as crowded as the indoor ones. I suggest that you visit during the week as the weekends can sometimes be a bit crowded with all the children enjoying themselves. There is lots of car parking and the facilities are good but I thought the prices were a bit high for families
