      The Mount hot pools are great but they sure get overcrowded at times! Bring a water bottle to put on the side because the salt water really makes you parched. Three essential experiences when visiting the Mount: a walk on the beach, a Copenhagen cone and a swim at the hot pools.

      I hope you sort it out before i visit. I remember going to the hot pools eight years ago and having really enjoyable experiences but it sounds as though you have dropped the temp and your customer service standards!? Reading these reviews is almost enough to put me off but i'll give you the benefit of the doubt

      My family and I visited the pools on Saturday while holidaying at the Mt for the weekend. My husband is in a wheelchair, and I thought (based on what is written on your website) that he would get in free. When I asked about this, the girl at the desk didn't know what I was talking about, so spoke to, who I assume was a supervisor/manager. He was very rude when I asked him about it and stated 'no one gets in free!' I mentioned what I had read on the website, and he then acknowledged that there were circumstances where you could get in free with a disability and very rudely said that we had to apply for this and it involved more than just turning up and needing a carer to be with you. The fact we had to pay for my husband was fine, but the rudeness of this staff member was not! I didn't get his name, but he was there on Saturday morning, and I think he was in charge that day. I was not impressed at all with the way we were talked to which put an instant downer on the morning. All other staff members were polite and friendly, bar this one guy. The facilities were clean, and the range of temperatures for the pools was great. We ended up having a fun morning. However, when getting changed, the showers were cold! Skipping the shower normally wouldn't bother me, but with the pools being salt water, we really did need to rinse the salt off, but I couldn't put my kids into cold showers during winter, so we just had to get changed and have showers when we got back to our accommodation. I was meant to mention this to staff as we were leaving, but I completely forgot. I think you need to put up more information on your website regarding the free entry for disabled people as the wording is quite deceiving! Our visit overall was a mixed bag! The actual pool facilities were great, but I cannot get past the rudeness of this staff member!

      @Mike. Good Afternoon Michael, I would like to apologise for your unpleasant visit. The Mount Hot Pools are ultimately owned by the city and therefore the ratepayers. To thank locals for their support, we offer local residents a discounted rate, however some form of local ID is required whether it be a letter with your address, Library card or TECT card. We have over 200,000 visitors per year and unfortunately we cannot take everyone’s word as we often have a number of non residents attempting to get the discounted rate. We don’t believe this is “penalising” locals but a fair and simple way to determine who is a resident. Once we have viewed one form of ID we can issue you with one of our Hot pools local ID cards. On your next visit, if you would also like to bring in your local ID and your receipt from this weekends swim, we will be more than happy to refund the difference, as we do this with all locals who bring receipts back with proof of residency. In regards to the lifeguard referring you to the shower to flush your eyes out. We do have an eye wash that we use for chemical spills however stinging eyes from the salt does occur often and it is common practice for the staff to recommend customers rinse them under the tap or shower. Thank You for your feedback and we hope to see you back soon. Regards Kent (Centre Manager)

      I love these pools but had a really poor experience this weekend. As a local ratepayer not having any utility bill on me I paid $26 for myself and my 2 sons to go to our local pool. the girl at the front counter was not interested after I was unable to produce any local authentication. My so and I did something silly we swam the length of the pool under water. Yes we opened our eyes and yes they were stinging. I asked the lifeguard for first aide. Did not expect her to say just wash them out under the shower. I would have thought that they would carry a bottle of fresh water to assist? anyway off to teh shower and find after hitter the button that I now have hotter water coming out of teh shower so off to teh basin same again. Getting relly peeved by now. I would expect that if I requested first aide I would get more then a fob off. Also why does th epool penalise locals without ID please take our word for it. Is the price a deterent to visitors? pretty expensive if you camp there for a week and have to fork out money to that level?? Like I said I love the pools but a more proactive approach would be nice

      My wife and I just spent a week in Tauranga on holiday and the hot pools were an attraction we wanted to visit before going home. I'm so glad we took the time to go. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the facilities were nothing short of awesome. We will definately return and bring friends with us.

      The pools are great. It's so nice to see that while th rest of The Mount has become exploited and developed the Pools have stayed essentially the same. I am ex pat kiwi but fortunately Mum and Dad still live at Papamoa so I get there every year. A walk up the Mount (alt 232m) is a must do. The view up there is breathtaking. The only negative about the pools is the proudly displayed difference between the cost for residents of the area and visitors. If you are local and can prove it (Drivers license etc) your swim costs less. Now obviously this is partly due to a ratepayers discount but the fact that visitors are paying more is kinda offensive. (Resident family 2 adults and 2 kids = $10.00 while visting family =$20.00)

      We decided to give it a go as its only up the road but we were a bit dubious as it has mixed ratings well we we were greeted by a very pleasant lady who was most helpfull, and we found the pools lovely the first we treid was really hot and had lovely shaded areas out of the sun the massage jets were good and strong the next pool we tried was cooler but still had enough warmth not to be a shock i walked round and tried the temp in the small was good to we spent a very pleasant 2hrs plus in the private showers the water was tepid and was fine after the heat of the pools cooled me down without freezing me.

      My husband and I visited the hot pools last night for the first time in a number of years. I have to say I was disappointed at the warmth of the pools, the two small pools and the larger one all seemed to be the same temperature which was not quite warm enough. On our last visit there were three small pools which I remember to be way warmer than the main pool. We sat in the smallest pool which seemed to be the hottest and lots of people that came in were also looking for something warmer. We were also disappointed to see all the water jets in the big pool had gone. Also the service on reception was very poor, the girl 'serving' us seemed more interested in her conversation with her work mate than serving us. The complex did seem clean which was good to see. If the pools were at their normal temperature I doubt we will visit again.

      As a frequent user of the pools for many years the recent improvements to the decor (and screens cutting out the wind tunnel) have made it most attractive. Have travelled extensively and cruise ship passengers and locals alike have a facility here which is unique, attractive, and one of the Bay's true icons. Don't commercialise it to the extent that you destroy its unique character

      @Chris. Thanks for your feedback Chris. We are really sorry to hear your experience was not an enjoyable one. We do our very best to ensure our front line staff are friendly and welcoming to all customers. We will be addressing this with the staff member on at the time and also holding additional customer service training for all front line staff. The changing ammenities are not the best currently and we do apologise for this but the only other option was to close the facility so we felt this was the better option for our customers. The contractors are doing their very best to finish as quickly as possible. In recent years our hot water bore consent levels have decreased. This has meant we are having to use less hot water to try and heat the pools and unfortunately, on the really windy, cold days, the system can sometimes struggle to keep up. We are currently working through the process to have the consent updated and espect next winter to be much better. once again, apologies for your experience and we do hope you will visit again some time.

      Incredibly disappointed, basic facilities unavailable. Arrived on a cold, wet and windy July looking forward to a nice long hot soak. Firstly, the reception staff almost seemed inconvenienced by the arrival of customers, which wasn’t the warmest of welcomes. Secondly, during the renovations there are no male changing facilities available. Tucked at the back of the complex was a dirty portable toilet block with no heating or lighting. Outside was a small wooden bench and a singular strip of Astroturf, and that was the extent of the male facilities, certainly not an acceptable temporary solution. One of the pools was surrounded by junk, chairs and other builders materials. So completely unavailable, yet this wasn’t explained nor was the price reduced to reflect availability. Most of the lockers were battered and faulty, hopefully this will be rectified during the ‘refurbishment’. None of the pools were particularly warm, in fact most could only be described as tepid. We took friend from overseas to visit and found ourselves apologising and left feeling toughly disappointed. Refurbishment is most welcome, however, the price should reflect the absence of essential facilities. Much better hot pool options are available.

      Loved our first day at Mt Mounganui hot pools and will go back more often. Kids were dissapointed when we had to go home. Guards were on alert at all times especialy with the kiddy pool. Only thing that i didnt like there is only one family/disable in a changing room so had to take my kids (4-6yr boys) in womens bathroom. Besides that was a very good experience and great customer service.

      Mount hot pools just reopened and we thought it would be a big revamp, but just plumbing by the looks. Also none of the cracked tiles, esp in the baby pool, have been replaced! We've already had an incident of a cut foot! Maybe there is more going to happen but I think it is now worse, if you have kids anyway. Loads of the benches to sit and watch the kids are gone, shade sail is gone and that was a great one for the glare, sun or rain. Family shower is ice cold, so no washing off the very strong salt or chlorine, whatever it is. This was a great place to take the Family but in the future back to Fernland Spa

Are they ever going to be open again?!?! I am guessing there are alot of dissapointed people out there as these hot pools are amazing for a nice relaxing time away, where the kids can go off and play and the parents can just relax.

      Dissapointed once again. Very fond memories as a child and wanted to share this with my children. Checked the website for pricing and drove on a horrible day (perfect for hotpools) from Hamilton to the Mt. Let the kids get wet and cold at the beach then walked to the pools. Sorry closed until further notice. I'm gutted. But found that Fernland spa on Cambridge Rd. was cheaper and on the way home. Thanks Fernland.

      We love the Mount Maunganui Hot Salt Water Pools. We use them pretty regularly in the early mornings and swim our 20 laps. We would love to have the temperature kept at 33 or 34 + degrees - sometimes it gets quite cool. This and hot showers would mean we could use the facility for longer into winter. The showers, particularly the womens', are usually cool to almost cold and only very occasionally really warm. But we don't need a huge upscaling of the pools. Little things like new stainless steel handbasins and some cleaning up wouldn't cost a lot, but a Maori Culture Centre and bigger pools and other large expenditure items would probably not make the pools any more attractive, and may make the entry price increase, which obviously we would not like to see. At present they are an affordable, value-for-money, enjoyable outing and means of exercise, and one of the reasons we live in the area.

      Loved these pools in 1998 when my husband and I started going at $2.50 a visit, not quite so in love now that it costs $9 and nothing has changed in 10 years. We would rather go somewhere that is doing something to earn the money. Shame though.

      Went to these fairly recently and had a great time. Yes, take a waterbottle because the salt can dehydrate you and remember not to shave your legs before you go! Waited 10 minutes before the salt stopped stinging hahaha! But had a lovely time. Will definitely be back...WITH HAIRY LEGS! :P

      A hot pool we just keep going back to again and again. It's a must for your day at the mount especially if it's cold. Suitable for all ages and constantly hot water. Charges have gone up though now $7.00 per adult from $5.00. Recommend a visit if your in the area.

      What a fantastic establishment we absolutely loved it especially my little girl (19 months) the padling pool even had a slide which she absolutly loved. Our group comprised of 8 adults, 5 teens and one todler, we even had my elderly mum with us as well who absolutely loved it - it helped with her aching joints. The wonderful staff were helpful & friendly, The facilities were fantastic and clean, we cannot recommend this place even more. We will definitely be back. It was a long day trip from Auckland - especially with such a young child - so next time we might stay a night in Mt Maunganui.

      These pools are great for bathing in no matter what kind of weather consumes BOP as there is a pool with a temperature to suit everybody with the just over luke warm pool then the perfect hot pool with a sial so if your there during the day you don't get sun burnt! Great kids pool with a simple but fun slide that children are always enjoying :) The atmosphere is lovely to with dim lights and the beautiful mountain as a back drop. Always alert lifesavers.Well worth it!

      I remember going here when I was little with my mum, dad, two brothers and two sisters. It was really cool although one time I slipped a step but a blonde stranger saved me! My sister nearly drowned aswell but my dad and 'pool-workers' (don't know what you're called, sorry!(: ) saved her. She got chocolates! I didn't, no fair. Well thanks, this was like 8-10years ago, it was good then and probably now. I soooo have to go back. I used to live in Mt. Maunganui.

      used the hot pools on our last visit to NZ, we found the complex to be of a good standard at a reasonable cost, and the best place to be when it is raining. Will be there again next February.

      On Saturday the main pool was closed for a while due to "something" in the water. So everyone was packed into the other pools. Of course we were still charged full price. I was very dissappointed that the change rooms were very unclean and smelly.

      Commercial and busy but still one of the great places in New Zealand. Social but friendly, warm to hot water, the great stress-busting hoses and its all clean, well organised, and efficient - this place still rocks! A cold surf, a hot soak and an orange milkshake! Memories are made of this!

      Nice pools but the price has gone up AGAIN to $9 for one adult.. this is starting to get rather pricey considering what is on offer and that locals can enter at $5.

      don't mind the drive over to such lovely hot pools but just wondering why it was not open when we arrived on the 5th of june. Very disappointed after driving over just for this reason. I noticed your hours yet no saying about not being open on this day.
