22Sept18. We loved this place when we came in 2014 and think we will always come back when we visit from UK. Make sure you go up to the somewhat scary stream outlet. Water coming out of the ground at 98degrees c!
Various pools and popular with the locals by the look of it and not surprising.

This was recommended to us by our rental company. Being able to stay in a powered site in a wonderful location was a real treat, but the pools were great. Staff were friendly enough and the pools are class. Even in winter it was amazing. Went dark early so great for stargazing and doing some reading. Bit annoying you have to pay for lockers. $4 for washing and $4 for dryer. Nice kitchenette area, and the pools are much nicer than the nearby Rotorua due to the lack of sulphur smell!

Great for our ten month old - not too crowded. Somewhat outdated changing facilities.
