“Great place to chill after the climb of the mount!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Lovely pools of varying temps and filled with salt water so floating is fun! Clean and not too expensive. Car parking next to it in which we managed to park a campervan. Great for a relaxing time after a walk up the mount.

“Delightful evening activity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

We spent two very happy evenings luxuriating in the deliciously hot waters of these outdoor pools. I have limited mobility at present and walk with crutches and was delighted to be able to access the pools with ease. Plenty of parking, reasonable entrance cost. We highly recommend this activity.

“Something to do in the rain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We were going to walk around Mount Maunganui, but it was pouring with rain. Off we went. it was alot of fun sitting around in the rain while sitting in the lovely warm pools. the rain was drifting across the Mount as we sat chatting.

“A must do Mount experience ....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Great facility with easy parking, friendly staff and lovely position. Three outdoor hot salt water pools - all heated to different temps. First pool is a perfect temperature for the little ones. We always enjoy a family visit to the pools on an overcast day (find it too uncomfortable on a hot day) but our favourite is getting the babysitter in and heading down ourselves for a quiet soak and relax under the stars - a real treat.

Think there is more opportunity to be kiddy-friendly in the way of water games / toys. The office do have inflatable bands and toys available but it's a local secret we only recently discovered ....just ask at the window pool side and and they'll offer you a selection.

Otherwise a consistently good experience.

“Always on our to do list”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Pro's - Clean, Relaxing - hardly ever crowded. A great wind down after climbing the Mount. Location - foot of the Mount, short stroll to main beach. Pools of varying temperature's - something for everyone... even the little ones with a small basic slide pool. Lots of places in the pools to sit and relax - and the pools are open air... : ) You can book a massage if you wish to complete the therapy..

Con's - None
