Lots of shops & choices. Sales were on everywhere & in most stores. People in shops very nice. One caution is signage; not the best & one ways are a pain!

Excellent, pool is clean, changing facilities and showers clean, hair dryer free, for little ones there is a play pen and mat to use whilst you get changed, very helpful if you have toddlers. Good non slip mats on approach to pool. Wave machine can be a little strong at times. Warning given five mins ahead of it starting though.... More

Kids had great time in this fun pool. There is not many pools like this left too close to where we live anymore. Nice warm water, changing rooms warm too. Great slide and waves. Brilliant confidence builder for little ones. Be warned parking gets busy if not there early and no family/group changing either.

I have just read the previous review on here about 'sleazy staff'???? I would just like to point out that I use this pool regularly and know who Steve is. He is far from sleazy, he is very professional and isn't it his job to look at all people in the pool hall? If he didn't there would be a... More

My family tried this pool while on holiday and we noticed that the staff members looking young kids up and down and girlfriends or wife's that I find very sleazy. As we left we noticed the name of the staff and his name was Steve so be careful people and avoid this place

We regularly enjoy swimming in the Waves pool, both as a couple and also with our grandchildren. Our youngest grandchild recently learned to swim in the summer course, thanks to the fantastic teachers John and Mike. The pool is light and airy, the half-hourly waves give an opportunity to relax and chat. The children's area is well used and enjoyed... More

Riviera Conference Centre has so much to offer, a great fun swimming pool, gym, cafe as well as a conference centre. The staff are friendly and helpful, all my experiences at the centre have been good ones. It helps having on site car parking, I would like to see the cafe open longer in the evenings.
