Tekapo Springs Reviews
The pools here are lovely in winter and have a view of the mountains. The kids loved the ice rink. It would have been better if the outdoor heaters were on too for those just watching . It’s a shame..... more »
Relaxing day and evening! Loved going to the hot springs during the middle of winter, the view was gorgeous with snow all around. They have 3 pools of different temperatures, not many jets around, so.... more »
A decent place but quite a disappointment this time. The water was hardly warm, people kept asking at the reception to crank up the temperature (even though it was mid-summer and still warm outside). The lifeguard did not let our 9 and 7 year old children to play in the kids area without one of the adults freezing nearby to watch them. Not to mention a crowd of Chinese tourists always getting in the way anywhere we went. But have to admit the views are outstanding nonetheless.
Wasn't what we were hoping for. The waters were warm but not hot, I think the hottest pool was 39°C. And I personally couldn't get very comfortable sitting or laying in the waters. We left after only 30 minutes. I wish they would add more comfortable laying\sitting possibilities in the water and have a pool 41°C+ and an ice plunge pool with -10°C water.
