My kids had a great time here. We spent time in 4 different water pools on our hike. We took one of the shorter versions given the mix of ages in our group.
The kids saw desert animals like the hyrax which they usually don't get to see.
Standing under a cool waterfall on a hot day is quite relaxing, in particular when compared to sitting in the dead sea which felt hotter than the outside air.
I should point out that your experience will be affected by the crowds. We had a couple of the waterfalls / pools to ourselves for a bit which was nice. When they were crowded it was a different experience.
I debated making this a 4 or a 5 rating - as it really doesn't compare with places like Lake Powell in Utah. But i decided that the fact that it is natural and a place to cool down outdoors in such a dramatic desert setting warranted the higher ranking.
You should bring watershoes with backing to walk and go in the pools with (ie keens rather than crocs for example). There were several slippery rocks.
Also- they have closed the final waterfall (David's) on the hike due to falling rocks.
We had 5 year olds with us who had no problem with the walk and really enjoyed the pools/waterfalls.
This is not a good hike/trip for people who don't like the heat or can't walk on slippery rocks.
Leave yourself time to enjoy the water.
