I nearly drowned at Waingaro hot pools at the bottom of the waterslide, while a supervisor chatted to a friend. The rushing water held me under and it was only a miracle that I eventually bobbed to the surface. I was left gasping for 15 minutes and had an asthma attack because of it. And the prices are outragous. Comments by the owner that criticisms are racially motivated are bullshit and are being used as an excuse for poor hygiene. How disgusting to find those ‘things’ in the rooms! No excuses!
