“Not a big fan”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

This pool is a fun pool, there are no lanes to swim in, there are waves that come on at set times with warning, 2 water slides, a small toddler pool, a gym and canteen that has seats overlooking the pool that is good for spectators who are not swimming for what ever reason, a bit over priced!

“Excellent childrens party”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

We had our son's 7th birthday party here today. The staff were great, the food OK (typical kids party food without veg), the pool warm, changing rooms and showers all clean. My only suggestion would be that they offer some way of identifying the party children - swim hats, high vis vests etc. The pool is very popular and keeping track of 17 children was pretty tricky. All the children had a great time, so I would still recommend Oasis as a party venue and as a pool.

“Great fun for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Oasis beach pool to many filthy, and not to deny it can not be the most cleanliness places at times but its not the 5 star resort pool your going to, it's a kids pool that is generally a great morning or afternoon trip.

Kids love it, it's hard to pull them away, there's so many different features that are great for all the family. It can get busy at times but if your happy with dropping your kids of and comming back at a certain time or just sitting up in the cafe and watching them have fun then it's easy enough.

I agree that some features maybe do need updating, but kids are definitely not fussed about that and if it's fun you want from a not relatively cheap place then that's what you'll get.

The food not restaurant standard but when kids are hungry order them a plate of chips and a slushy drink and they will scoff them down within 5 minutes.

This pool is not for serious swimmers who want to train or swim lengths but I
definitely suggest this for school kids, and toddlers and baby's on week days when it's less busy.

“Filthy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

The concept is great, warm pool, waves, outside area. But the whole site is dirty, changing rooms are small and absolutely filthy, the venue is crowded and generally needs a lot of updating. It has the potential to be a good family venue, just needs decent managements and a few quid spending on it. Until then avoid.

“Love coming here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Love coming here with the family. Sauna and steam room should be bigger. And showers separately. Always love the waves
