3young teenagers, thoroughly enjoyed. Something for everyone, I love how parents can sit pool side and have a coffee while children play but can join if wish to. Cafe slightly expensive but food reasonable.

Took my grandchildren to the pool for a swimming session, on their summer holidays. They loved it and would definitely go back. They enjoyed the flume and the wave pool.It was very reasonably priced for a great afternoon out. Worth the trip from Edinburgh.
