“Excellent value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

I visited the pools on a hot summer Sunday. The place was pretty packed in the afternoon, but my kids (9 and 6) loved everything, especially those slides. The place is great value for the money, and a lot of fun on a hot day. The overall experience was positive, but the changing rooms could be cleaner, and it is unbelievable that there are staff members in a place like this, who really do not speak a word any other language but Hungarian.

“good idea for a hot summer day”

... but staff are rude and smoke the cigarretes all over the place.
A coffee served in plastic cups.. come on guys. Not too many time tickets options and a little too expensive

“Enjoyable for everybody.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

We were at Palatinus the last day of the season -13. It was still sunny and warm but not overcrowded so our family could really enjoy the bath. The wave-pool that functions once every hour is really cool, never seen so large waves. The kidspool with small slides was very much apprechiated by our 3 and 5 year old, but also the other "leisure-pools" were very appreciated by us. For older kids and teens there are two (?) larger slides.

Don't miss the funny yoghurt ice cream. Ask for a family price, we paid next to nothing for the whole family. And tip the person in the changingarea. It is a bit complicated, the changingarea, but ask and they will show you. You have one key and the hostess has one, you need both to open. One minus is the bathrooms and showers, they are not so fresh.

“Huge treat for the kids and therefore the parents!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

Huge clean swimming pool complex with slides and wave machine (where surfing lessons are held- very bizarre). A bit old and architecturally undistinguished but GREAT FUN! Perfect reward for good behaviour during less kid friendly sightseeing.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

Comprising about 7 large pools, side-by-side, with dancing fountains or water spouts or slides, or a wave machine or hot thermal water and one pool just for swimming in, this is a great place to cool down on a hot day. Suitable for all ages with clean changing areas and cafes it is a place that local families go to spend the day. Kept us cool when the temperature rose over 41 degrees.
