The hot springs are great

Not crowded. There are warm spots within the pool. Dont freak out if the water seems alive - there are little fish/tadpoles in it. There are showers nearby which is helpful... read more

We loved the warm salt water heated by underground lava tubes. We loved only having to drive about five minutes to the Ahalaunui ponds. We love coming home to the most beautiful home in Kapoho. The Kahonua Hale. If your in the Kapoho region, and, we strongly suggest you visit Kapoho, call the property manager Winston at 8908-960-1926 and book... More

Spectacular! I LOVED it. Warm sea water, only a few feet deep, floating with the fishes, listening to the ocean. Next time I'll schedule a message in the pond. Great afternoon destination before dinner.

We loved this hot volcanic-heated pool! Visited twice---the first time after hiking the incredibly steep road into and out of Waipi.o Valley. We were so sore, but a couple of hours in this toasty pool really helped with our aching leg muscles. It's so warm that we just plopped right into the water and lay back and enjoyed the soothing...

Lifeguards were terrific here! Parkland lawns clean and refreshing! Nice shower to wash off salt. Nice shade areas to picnic. The colors of the surf, pond, trees, surf, ocean were total eye candy! The thermal pond was a fabulous experience. I suggest getting there early in the day...for instance, morning, to enjoy as it gets crowded later on...

Not crowded. There are warm spots within the pool. Dont freak out if the water seems alive - there are little fish/tadpoles in it. There are showers nearby which is helpful because the water leaves brown stuff on you - fish poo?

This was far nicer than some reviews indicated. The water was very warm and shallow, although above my head in the center of the big pond. You don't need water shoes as it is sand on the bottom and there are steps down into the water. This would be a perfect place for children and beginning snorkelers, but I did... More

I love hot springs, this is really not like other hotsprings however, it is more like a natural hot pool as the water temp is more like 95 degrees or so (I had no thermometer). You are oceanside where hotspring waters mingle with ocean water enabling comfortable very nice floating. You could fall asleep but be careful of the black... More

This is a great place to bring the whole family, there are places for barbecues plenty of space for the kids to run around and play and of course the Thermal pond. The pond is such a safe place for the children as well and although it is warm it is enjoyable.

Really enjoyed the warm water pond. Ocean is crashing on the outer rocks but you don't hear them in your "sanctuary" of warm water. My kids enjoyed it and hubby floated on a blow up dingy. Water is between 4-5 feet deep with a one foot submerged rock ledge around the edge to sit on. A couple picnic covered areas... More
