We had some down time and wanted a soak. Reasonable price for our family. Different pools to suit everyone. Active, fun, exercise or relaxing. I loved floating on my back in the warm lazy river. The outside terraced spas are a novelty too.

Visting for waterpolo tournament. Great tournament, shame about the entry fee, wifi didn't work, and lighting was a bit dull. If you are charging entry, perhaps these could work better. Otherwise usual friendly staff and well supervised for children swimming in recreation area.

When travelling in the Uk recently- I was always searching for a decent swimming pool- impossible to find compared with the aquatic centre outdoor pool in Rotorua- this has to be the very best in the world. Great temperature all year round- no crowds, no...More
