We went to the Hydro in December 2017...Peak season. There was a fantastic atmosphere, with a live band. It was full . The pools were quite warm, however the pools with the slides have the water with a cooler temperature. A great getaway !

We went for a family weekend, the hydro was nice, quiet and private from the outside swimming pools, you can go for the massage therapy, or relax in the large pools there is a facility for disabled persons to enjoy the pools.
