We love to visit the Hydro during winter as a break away from the miserable cold. One feels free to swim in the gorgeous warm pools and relax all your tense muscles, aches and pains. The rheumatism pool is heated to the extreme and is worth a short dip to give the feeling of deep calmness.

This place is not far away from GP but it offers the feeling of being far away from the hussle of the big city. The Hydro is such a nice place to lie, relax and distress. The warm water has a healing effect I cannot explain to me. It is also suitable for the young and old with different pools... More

Relaxing in the nice warm water. It also has an outside section if inside is to warm for you but just right to completely relax before going to bed.

Fun in the hydro. It's always topfun. Nice warm water. Love the sprinkling waters. Plunge pool could of been a little more deeper. The two showers is also not enough. Outside part of hydro is super cool, specially in winter.

Our 5 & 8 year boys had an absolute blast at the Forever Resorts pools and slides. The water was nice and warm and the boys spent a couple of hours in the water. Great place for a day out with your family.

We were 3 brothers all over 60 and mum over 80. We stayed overnight at the resort and had two spells in the hydro. It was very relaxing and soothing and mum felt a big relief of her arthritis a day later. Maybe it was the combination of R & R and the Hydro. Would definitely recommend.
