Very nice setting and great for kids. The food was very expensive and took a long time, great staff at the pool counter.

Everything you could want, $32 a person and the option to leave and come back. Great location, good facilities, offer a steam room and sauna too.

After hiking around Mt Cook during the day, we had a wonderful time relaxing in the springs. There are pools for kids as well as an adults only pool that stayed peaceful. They give you a wristband for the day and you can go back as many times as you like.

Three big pools, good price for the day and the mountains as a backdrop. I wished I was there while it was snowing.

Nice place to chill for one to two hours max. We only had basic entry so maybe could have spent longer. Nice, friendly staff, clean pools and facilities. $25 - maybe slightly overpriced.

Well worth the $25! Soaked in the hot water for almost two hours. Three different pools with increasing temperature. So relaxing and quiet. There is an adult pool.

The hot spring was so relaxing and a ticket buys you access for the whole day (until they close at 9pm). They have free showers as well and it is great to do after the Mt John Walkway.

Before I came here, I thought here is natural hot springs but it was not. It is just a hot pool and not 'hot' for Japanese people who expected 'onsen'.

Pools could have done with a vacum (not clean). To experience all attractions - pools, plunge pool, sauna and slide is overpriced in my opinion. Poor design, cannot see view while in the pools!! Amazing views if you stand up!!

Nice hot pools by Lake Tekapo. Only went swimming but there are plenty of other activities- not as enjoyable if really busy depending on the season.

Didn't visit any others so can't compare but we loved these. No charge for 2yrs and under but you have to have a swim nappy ($3). The price stated $20 per adult but we were charged $20 for 2 adults not sure if this was an offer or a mistake?! Can buy combined tickets with the ice rink but after a 3 hour walk the ice skating got forgotten very quickly! Water was lovely, powerful massage jets, everything was clean and our little one actually could put her head under the water as it didn't sting her eyes.
Useless hair dryer in the ladies, used the hand dryer instead!

We really loved these pools. Were managed about 3 hrs.
The pools are all salt water so you can put your head under and open your eyes safely. This made a big difference for us with kids who had a ball.
If only they had a Hydro slide I would give it a 10 out of 10.
Definitely recommend to all. Only gripe is that the lockers take a $2 coin and you can open it up to get any thing out like sunscreen or a towel with out payning another $2 coin to relock. We spent $6 on locker fee's for this. FIX THIS STAFF!

Just had a second visit here because we love it so much. Fantastic way to revive tired muscles after day skiing or to relax after day on the road. Views from pools across the lake to the mountains are stunning. The front desk was training a new recruit when we checked in and kept us waiting a long time. Could have been handled better.

Tekapo Springs responds:

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Fantastic to hear you found the Hot Pools relaxing with the stunning views. We are about to launch New Zealand's first Summer Tube ride this summer that will make Tubing a year round attraction at Alpine Springs. We have recently undergone a recruiting process taking on several new staff, sorry for the inconvenience of the delay at reception. This issue has been raised and more efficient procedures have been put in place to avoid this in the future. I look forward to your return to Lake Tekapo in the near future.

Great at sunset, 3 different temp pools high up with view of lake, other facilities available but pools about $15 a person - reasonable.

We preferred the Alpine Spings to the Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools. They are smaller and not as commercial, for example no slides.
