“Really relaxing.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

The pools were fantastic, very easy to relax and unwind with so many choices and temperatures! The only negative is that I believe the ladies changing room could have been cleaner. I had treatments in the Spa and it was fantastic from start to finish.The staff in the spa were professional and friendly and the lady providing my treatments was very knowledgeable. I really enjoyed my time in the spa all parts of the spa were excellent.

“Worth Visiting for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Many pools option and each one of them is clean.
It was man made, because originally i thought the pool was natural, but beautifully arranged.

“Very good, even in the rain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

An excellent range of pools of varying temperatures and mineral content/aroma is on offer at quite a reasonable price. Although when we were there the weather was poor (cool, overcast and raining) the pools remained enjoyable even so, and you're wet anyway. Just don't stand around out of the water for too long.

“Will keep coming back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

Third time of visiting and love it. Okay not the fanciest of places but for the price you pay a very relaxing way to spend 3hrs of my weekend. Plus love the slides. Even though blowing a serious north wester resulting in you freezing every time you got out a pool or waiting for a slide. Still loved it. Thanks to all the staff for running a well run ship, I hope the improvement to the changing room results in warm water in the showers for my next visit.

“Not all pools open”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

My family went to pools twice in 24 hours ($85) and we noticed that not all of the pools were open, it was not such a issue during the evening visit but the following day during peak hour the pools that were open were jam packed with the closed pools just sitting there with signs saying "pools closed to save the environment". This is wrong in my opinion, if you pay top dollar for a experience you expect everything open regardless of what month/time it is.
