We stopped at Ahalanui after a drive down the coast, and it was a totally refreshing pick-me-up! The geothermal pool was pleasantly warm in spots, and super easy in/out via steps. Really cool vibe with lots of older folks playing the guitar, jamming on drums, and generally enjoying life. Recommended.

Thgis was a great experience. Very clean and easy to get into and out of. Nice park setting. Pretty busy but quiet at the end of the day.

What a great place to go. Seems like more locals go to this place. It's a large pool with fresh water warmed by springs from the Kileau volcano and ocean waves crashing over a manmade breakwater and inlet to cool it down. It's spectacular!! I love to watch the waves hit the breakwater. Also a nice park with picnic tables,... More

I did not sample the thermal pools, but I spent many hours exploring the coastline and watching the waves crash against the rocks. I recommend water shoes with sturdy tread and a water bottle. Parking is decent, and they re-surfaced the parking lot while I was there, so there is maintenance happening.

We had a nice, relaxing time in the thermal pool here. Found it almost by accident. The water is warm and clear. Small fish swim around in the pool, some people were snorkeling. A word about cleanliness...I had an open wound from a fall onto lava rock a few days earlier. I was nervous about going in because of the... More

The thermally heated tidal pool was a pleasant surprise. The water was always changing. It was like being in a tepid bath. There were a lot of Russian men there in speedos, Yeah!. Interesting stop.

Well marked, parking lot was just okay, and It was easy entry into the thermal pool. There were people of all ages, some were snorkeling, but the water wasn't very clear. The bottom has a lot of huge rocks the closer you get to the ocean side so be aware as to not hurt yourself. I wish I brought a... More

Lovely place to relax and let go of your worries. Remember it is the "warm" pond. NOT a hot spring. Great place to take your parents that may not be able to get in the water in other places where it is too difficult.

I really liked this place. It was warm but not too warm, it was really nice just floating around snorkeling. Also floated on my back while looking up at the swaying palm trees - felt like I was in heaven! If I lived here I would visit often!!!
