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)
