Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The place have potential to be good but it was terrible.
Nice staffs in the reception.
My family and I extended our trip only to visit X2O to take out kids and spend couple of hours in there but we could handle how cold the water was.
My 8 months baby that loves water didn’t e joy and my 8 year old enjoy the sliders.
What a dream if you could have a nice warm swimming pools to relax and a good cafe.
The coffee was disgusting 🤮
My partner finished drinking his coffee and he notice dirt at the bottom of his cup.
Why to own a cafe if you have no idea how to make ans serve one?
Extremely hot and filled to the top that she dropped all over herself when serving to me.
You don’t have to fill the cup to the end and it’s doesn’t have to be lava.
We spent maximum 1 hour and when to have some proper coffee and food afterwards.

Cant believe the good ratings for this place. While the staff were friendly, their communication around 'sessions' was severely lacking. These pools are run on 2 hour sessions whereby every 2 hours everyone has to get out of the pools for about 40 minutes so they can be cleaned. This is regardless of what time you started swimming. We could only swim for 50 minutes and worse another family could only swim for 15 minutes. We were both charged full price. Who cleans their pool during the middle of the afternoon especially during summer school holidays. You did have the option to go in again after the 40 minutes but who could be bothered with that. They seem to be taking the Extreme part of their name quite literally.

Water could have been a bit warmer, but family had fun. The slides were great for the older kids. but also a great pool for the little ones.

We came here for a friends party and it was the first time we've been to this pool. The space given for the parties was pretty awful. You get a table and a few chairs squashed next to another party. The slides were good fun, but the queues were really long and often you got cold waiting to go down the slides. The little kiddies pool was great until the wave machine kicks in. It normally pretty hot / comfortable, but when the waves are going it pumps freezing cold water into the area dropping the temperature a good a few degrees. A number of water sprays were broken on the side of the pool and when we were there the lazy river was broken as well.

On the whole if you're over 8 and can swim reasonably well you're likely to have some fun. For the little ones, there is very limited things and when the waves are going even the far end of the pool is sloshing about quite a lot.

Lastly when we got changed back we noticed the change rooms aren't cleaned. We found feces in the room on the chairs which wasn't a fun experience.

May return but there are nicer pools for young kids in the Wellington region we're likely to go to next time.

My son and I treat ourselves to go here on Saturdays after work

The spa is usually our first stop, followed by steam room and sauna, before going onto the 3 slides. After that, the swimming and aqua-jogging area are calming, and there are plenty of lane pools too. Then there's the wave pool, which is great for adults and kids alike. They even had a concert here recently!

I haven't tried the food, although they do have a cafe on site

At the moment, H2O Xtream is closed for refurbishment. Before it closed it rated 4 stars, so I'm pretty sure it will reopen (in a few weeks time) as a 5

Can't wait!

This centre is pretty good with friendly staff. The kids can run around doing the slides while grownups do laps or lounge in the spa. The staff told me the pool has UV treatment which was why I went in the spa as they are often a bit dodgy with smelly water.

A great value family activity, especially the slides and wave pool. The place is looking a bit tired these days, but the planned refurbishment, due in Jul 18, will make a big difference.
