  • Fun family day out. Take a picnic and camp out on the lawn. Slides are definitely a hit - lots of fun but starting to look a little tired. Nice that all the water is heated- indoor and outdoor pool
  • Went for the 50% off in the last 2 hours before closing, they announced the pool was now closing at 9:35pm when they advertise being open until 10pm, felt ripped off even at $12, my fault for arriving at 8:30pm I guess. Changing rooms were grotty, heard from a female in our group there was blood in the female changing room. Maybe a hose out and tidy up of the rubbish in the changing rooms just a couple of times in the day would be good. No lighting in the tower so don't bother going there after dark. General cleanliness of the facility was not too bad overall. Not worth $24, avoid weekends and school holidays if you can (stampedes of kids) . Probably won't go again.
  • On 21 Oct 2017 we went for a soak in the Parakai Springs thermal pools after not visiting for quite a few years and what a disappointment! My partner cut her foot on tiles in the indoor hot pool. I see from recent reviews we are not the only ones. This shows they aren't serious about fixing the problem. If they emptied the pool regularly and inspected the bottom they would see such hazards. The other health hazard is the really unclean pool water. The water is really murky with lots of hair, skin, leaves and various bits and pieces floating in the water. These two issues shows the owners don't care too much about the customers experience or their health. OSH and the health department should close them down until they rectify these hazards. $24 is not value for such a rundown complex. We will never return.
  • If you need somewhere to go for a awesome family day come to parakai springs through the holidays the kids zone is operating an watching my grand daughter go through the new obstacle course (bouncy castle type thing) was really awesome she had a fantastic time an did not want to get of. The pools here are beautiful and the staff are really wonderful so come see for yourselves your children will love you for the treat.
  • Very expensive because u only have full access options. U used to be able to pay for slides as option. Also lockers are $5 each. With no option to rent for short term if u want to use slide. $24 plus $5 to hire locker is just too damn much. Not recommended if u dont use slide. For 2 adults and a locker over $50 is just a ripoff
