We went to the Hydro in December 2017...Peak season. There was a fantastic atmosphere, with a live band. It was full . The pools were quite warm, however the pools with the slides have the water with a cooler temperature. A great getaway !

We went for a family weekend, the hydro was nice, quiet and private from the outside swimming pools, you can go for the massage therapy, or relax in the large pools there is a facility for disabled persons to enjoy the pools.

the Hydro was perfect for the chilly weather, the kids enjoyed it although they were not allowed to really splash. the hot water was great. We couldn't get enough of it and spent the entire weekend at the Hydro.

Started our weekend in BelaBela with couples massage. Although we booked for Healing Water Journey that could not be done due to hot water issue, team offered alternative and we left well-rested and pampered. Good value for money with professional therapists.
