Had the most amazing weekend away, enjoyed the pools quite a few times, but absolutely loved the Spa. Had pedicure, manicure, facial and massage and the service was amazing. The massage was by far the best thing, I felt amazing afterwards. I would recommend leaving...More

Although the prices are a bit steep, this remains a unique experience. The pools and slides are great and the cafe is pleasant too. Recommended.

We bought a day pass return, which allowed us one swim then to return later. We loved the pools, great variety in warmth. Everything was really clean and great! Would recommend, it is a must do.

The pools are awesome but the antiquated process of lining up to get in was painful. Seaworld, wet and wild etc get thousand of people through the gates efficiently. We stood for at least 30 mins and only about 12 people in each row moved...More
