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.

Facilities are good but front staffs so bloody arrogant and have high attitude! Can’t answer anything on the spot without asking their supervisor or manager. Staff untrained and young. Paid so much money on swimming lesson for my child but don’t get good service.

I visited MARC recently with a disabled relative, and the staff at the check-in desk were obviously poorly trained and/or disorganised causing unnecessary long queues.
The downstairs male shower room changing area was unclean with pools of stagnant water and several areas of mud on the floor for over an hour before I decide to report it on my way out. It had obviously not been inspected by caring staff during that time and the first staff member that I spoke to was uninterested, he told me to find someone else even though he was wearing a radio and other staff that I spoke to were undecided about whose responsibility it was as the cleaners were not on-site at 10:00 am.
I was also very alarmed at the significant buildup of mould on the shower room floor, which is a major health hazard, and has obviously not built up overnight. My relative noted that the warm water pool felt colder than on previous visits, and overall, we were very disappointed with this visit to MARC which is not a cheap experience.
The centre looks very tired and dirty with a lot of young staff running about trying to look busy and either unconcerned or unsure about their duty of care.

Filthy spa and sauna, not cleaned covered with hair, overcrowded with over 10 adults inside the HOT room. The staff do not clean the areas and many people use the steam room and HOTROOMS throughout the day. The Asian cultures do not know why people use the Hot room and Steam room, for relaxation. The Chines do not respect this, as they make up their own rules in Australia. Extremely loudmouth Chines talk and talk inside this HOT 1-meter by 1-meter room, not permitting others to have some peace and quiet. These Untrained communities must be educated, and the center MUST have signs in “ Chines” so these people know what to do. Inside the hot room, the Chines spit, making it uneasy for women to be in this small, confined space… This center has NOT kept up with any NEW modifications very slow to carry out maintenance, AND THEY EMPLOY MORE STAFF THAN NEEDED. Nil security in this center and 80% of the staff are very young, untrained, unprofessional, and very arrogant. Extremely old-fashioned inexperienced people are employed at this center and DO NOT LIKE ANY FEEDBACK !!!! Very badly run the center and major OHS issues and lack of cleaness !!!!!

Been here for almost 10years regular. Realised that the fees gone high. Some facility got upgraded. The most common issues besides being busy, is the etiquette of some members. Gone from worst to being racist and disturbingly rude. Unisex toilet becoming more and more outdated with poor water efficiency with constant broken washers and takes 3 times longer to shower. Shower heads are either clogged with sludge or random hairs. Toilet are rarely flush after use. Hand dryers head are stucked with different color hairs. Water fountain is hardly clean as it get harder to drain. But what makes things worst is that lifeguards get bullied by bullies(patrons) that are regulars that uses phones inside the pool and forcing their ways to use the saunas and steam rooms that required booking. Is a hopeless place for people seeking rehab or to carry out exercises safely this especially in hydrotherapy pool.
Just ensure you have companion to accompany this this centre for safety and possibly as witness incase requiring police assistance if ever get harassed and discriminated. The management hands are tied as they have almost zero power to handle such disgusting incidents. It has becomes a normal thing. Very disappointed. Some Lifeguards are great to have around and helpful though. As for the Cafe, is very expensive for a culpa let alone an attempt for a slice of cakes. Could have gave discount to members that been there for more than 10years or the Cafe but no, price just co times to hike. I guess Monash council doesn't care anymore. Would suggest to try the Oakleigh centre, Ashburton or even Harold holts. People there are more respectful and better toilet etiquette and kind.

Before the lockdown in Victoria, members and guest gets to use the rinsing area before getting into the pool. Now there been no effort to setup temporary zone to rinse off before getting into and out the pools. Imagine the intensity of chlorine use and just an hour use with only 20 percent entry fee reduction. Could have set a timer lcd screen and push button for rinsing off shower area from people that misuse it with shampoo and soaps showering. Don't punishes other user that needs it to be hygiene especially during this covid days. There are people desperately need the pool to rehab from existing injuries and arthritis especially in the hydro pool. Despite having rusty shower heads I have been a member there for 10 years due to close location to home and no improvement done. The staff also can be quite rude to Asian the failed to speaks fluent English. Really hope they will improves their customer feedback and action. So disappointed by their attitudes and management. Switching to Holts aquatic. The staff and management takes in both negative and positive feedbacks and action them accordingly unlike here. Called recently to check and still behaves the same no action taken just the same ol years of excuse of " we will take into consideration your feedback".

I take my family here regularly. The wave pool is the favourite but all the facilities are good.

My only issue about the place is the overuse of chlorine. Sometimes it has been so strong we have to leave and are coughing and itchy for hours.

We are a retired couple, who have lived in the area for over 45 years and since the pool opened we have both been regular visitors. My husband who is very fit is able to do laps whilst after many health issues, I usually head straight to the therapy pool. This has been especially helpful when I have needed rehab after surgery. We have also used the pool with our grandchildren. Our eldest Grandaughter has attended successful birthday celebrations at the pool.
