  • I hadn't been here since I was a kid and recently visited with my partner. Having talked it up, I have to admit it was a bit of an anticlimax. I don't think it's had a makeover since I was a kid, chan...  more »
  • As a teen I remember going to Parakai and running up that slide tower over and over again. As a parent I've just relived my youth as I raced up the tower time and time again after my kids. They had an...  more »

  • Nostalgic atmosphere in a lovely setting. We're here on a busy Easter Holiday Weekend. We arrived late Friday afternoon and by the time we were set up in the equally nice adjacent campground and walked across to the springs it was evening. One might expect a bit of wear and tear at the end of a busy day but the friendly and courteous staff had obviously been diligent in their housekeeping. If you are looking for a flash new place you'll probably be disappointed but if you're looking for a charming setting at modest prices you'll love it!
  • Was not happy with our booking. We booked for two nights & our second night we left a cone in the drive of our powered site like we were told to do & they gave it to someone else. So when we came back at 10.30pm from the wedding our site had someone else in it. We were told not to go on the grass but we had too. Not happy the grass was very wet & long. The manager didn't seem to fussed about it all. We will not be going back there unless they give site numbers when you book.
  • Fantastic place for a group outings with family and friends. They have kid pools, warm pool, two slides just an amazing experience. But small but still have everything you need. You can organise a party, birthday celebration and many other events too.
  • Its a nice pool for family and kids. If your looking for a hot pool spa type experience this isnt really it. There is a hot pool included in the general admission price. If you want the spa like pool one you must pay extra for that and its per 30 mins. Overall i enjoyed my time here but have had a better time at other pools. I felt it was a bit overpriced for what it was. The waiwera hot pools near by i felt were better. Clean facilities. Friendly staff.
  • It was a memorable experience coming here with my Nephew and Sister. Awesome pools. This place accommodates you with tables if you pre-book a spot. I slipped on a wet mat that we use for sliding down the huge slide and was very disorientated but I still slid down the slide, they have a first aid centre which I didn't use, but that's my fault.
