Pool is lovely, wave machine is good. Price has gone up though and there isn't a discounted rate for families which makes it quite expensive. In future will just use a normal swimming pool which doesn't have a wave machine so don't have to pay those ridiculous prices.

The pool was really good and even for young kids and they live the waves every half a hour and the flume was great to try. Pool was clean and warm nice for a good swim

We visited on June 20th between 130PM and 330PM.The pool was lovely, my wife and our baby daughter had a beautiful time. Staff were friendly and helpful, the wave machine was excellent. Just a shame the experience was marred by the shabby attitude displayed by two members of staff in the cafe. We were the only customers in there. We... More

we had been to the swimming pool before and found it to be clean and well staffed we had a shock when we paid to go in as the price had gone up over £4 and they had no offers for a family swim but the facilities are good but expensive?

We went to the Riviera Centre on Thursday of our visit to Devon. The weather had been rubbish all week and we wanted something fun to do indoors, after doing some Google-ing we came across the Riviera Centre which offers "waves pool" within their centre. We decided to take the risk and drive 40 minutes to Torquay to check it... More

I never tire of being amazed at how many places in the UK charge you to park even though you are going to pay to get in as well but it is especially annoying at swimming pools ! They should offer a rebate when you pay for your pool entry. The staff were friendly but the changing rooms were dirty... More

Its such a shame this pool is so cold - we had to leave after 40mins as our 2yr old was shivering with blue lips! It was a shame, as it is a fab pool- a beach type style so gradually gets deeper, wave machine every 30mins, a flume (not open when we were there though - grr), and a... More

My family were down for the Bank Holiday and on the Sunday went to swim, they had a marvellous time. On the Wednesday they called to say they had left some of the little ones things at the centre.
