The best pool we have been to. The price was okay. And they had different pools (different temperatures). Even big waterslides for kids.

Two large hot pools and one cool. Excellent to relax for a day. Water slides are surprisingly fast!

For $15 it's worthwhile, several different pools at different temperatures. The waterslide was very good fun especially the bendy part at the end.

We were slightly disappointed there wasn't more pools..... until we discovered the private spa pools, no extra cost just leave a deposit (e.g. keys) and you have your own spa pool at your choice of temperature (38-42c) - I think most people miss the private pools so well worth checking them out.

A great experience, pools of different temperatures, nicely laid out with attractive shrubs and trees, - a simple place for excellent enjoyment. And a discount if you stay at the motor home site.

We love this place and come whenever we can. Don't be put off by the negative below - we've always found it spotless. We know the pools are emptied and scrubbed every night because we've been asked to pull the plug out on them at the end of an evening! There are several pools and they are all of differing temperatures so you can find one to suit, the private pools have their temperatures written on the door so you can choose the one that best suits. So that's that out of the way. The accommodation is great - new and modern and well cleaned. The staff are friendly and really keen to make your stay a pleasant one. It's just a great place. We'll be coming back a lot!

After reading the reviews thought this would be great, v.v disappointed, the whole place seemed quite grubby and in need of a good clean, expensive too. We have a 3 and 6 year old and the pools were just too hot for them, we only lasted 30mins! For us a waste of time and money!

This place was superb. Genuine hot pools not like the tepid baths heated by LPG at Franz Josef. If you care about your planet go to genuine hot pools like this. Well done and your staff are so nice!!! We will come again in 2013.

These are always lovely to visit, friendly staff gave us discounted towels after hearing we got stuck on the desert road in the snow. Will definitely go back.

We always stay at Taupo De Bretts when in Taupo. My kids love the dragon slide and pool complex, and I love the massages :-) Our units have always been extremely clean and attractively decorated to boot. Highly recommended.

Popular hot pools with water slide and fun times for kids. Good for the family, not so good if you are looking for a quiet soak. I agree with Paulonline - great on a frosty night when the stars are out.

There is no place better on a cold Taupo night. Two big pools, one hotter than the other, they always seem to be the right temperature. I lived in Taupo and went about once a week.
