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.

From the moment you arrive, you'll find that this is a fantastic place.
I arrived solo on an unpremeditated trip from Christchurch. Decided I wanted to do a couple of laps in the pools. I rolled up and found out it was in a prime location. Parking was far and wide and easy to access. Massive building with well-kept facilities. The staff were beyond awesome and the main reason that I am leaving this review. Seriously... FABULOUS! As for the pools, they have a large variety including many indoor lanes, an outdoor pool, a couple of kiddie pools and what looked like a hot pool (not too sure about that one, though.) Pricing is very reasonable: 1 adult doing laps is $6.50. One of the cheapest aquatic centre's that I have visited. Everything was clean and maintained. Plenty of lifeguards on alert as they should be. There was a pretty busy gym upstairs that looked well equipped with treadmills etc. All around, fantastic experience and I will definitely be coming back in the future!
Loved it.

Last visited in 2014. Entry price for kids has risen from $3.50 to $4 and still $4 for the slides. Great value!
10 year old had a fantastic time in the pool, on the slides and diving from the platform and springboard - both which were well supervised / managed by staff.

The pools are great, the Cafe is great, it's a Shame about the dusty dated looking disc's hanging from the ceilings as they make it look older than it is.

Stopped in Timaru before heading to Dunedin. Kids needing something to tire them out after a long car journey. Good clean facilities with friendly staff and hot coffee.

Hydroslides were fun but closed a bit early at 5pm.

Water was clean, hydroslides were a lot of fun and the paddle boats and large inflatable was fun for my nephews to play on.
Staff were friendly.
Changing rooms were clean.

This is a great place for kids to enjoy. 3 pools, hydro slide lazy river. Diving board and bombing tower ( not always accessible). Spa and Sauna costs extra. If u do go make sure some of the pools are not booked out as it can ruin a great day

CBay is a great facility for fitness and recreation for all ages. The pool, gym area upstairs also has a range of Les Mills fitness classes and Age fit, Mums and Kids yoga, Pilates etc. There are Aqua fitness programmes and exercises for Stroke and the Water Exercise Programme (WET). Changing rooms and toilets are easily accessible and clean. Make sure you visit the cafe, the coffee is very nice and there is a good selection of goodies too.

very slippery underfoot, Be aware. Very strong smell of chlorine. Hot pool is sometimes not hot. The cost is terrible, pay to swim, pay to use the spa, pay to use the steam room, this can cost upwards of $15 per person if you do all 3. Cafe doesnt offer that much of a variety of foods. Shame really....
