This was a great day out with the whole family, there are so many slides to choose from and we stayed the whole day. There are places to eat and drink at a reasonable price and there are plenty of things for small children to enjoy. There are so many sun loungers to choose from. As we went in September,... More

Visited in mid October and the place was very quiet. This was good as there was no queues to deal with. It was a tiny bit chilly in the pool tho! Busses to Agia Napa all the time direct from the front of the park. Worth a visit.

Been coming here with my family for years now. It's a nice waterpark to relax while the kids have fun. Food is OK and prices are average. Only downside is the entrance fee which I found quite expensive compared to other waterparks we've visited in Cyprus and Europe.

Waterworld water park is great for all ages. It's a couple of minutes drive out of ayia Napa. It gets very hot and very busy also the floor gets hot so make sure you bring your flip flops our your feet will burn. Also there is a go kart track next door which is fun.

We all had a great day out here, from my mum to my niece who was just 3 at the time of our visit. Plenty of sun loungers for this not interested in the pools and loads for those who love slides and inflatables!

Great Grecian themed water park a few minutes drive out of Ayia Napa. This place is great for all ages. Second time I have been with grandparents and teens. Water is cool. It's not very busy and the slides are fun. Ground can be hot so take flip flops. Make sure you don't forget to visit the go kart track... More

We visited the waterpark with the family whilst there for my wedding in May 2014. There were 9 adults and 8 children. There is a great variety of slides to suit all ages, as well as pools for the much younger children. Our party ranged from 8 months to 68 years and all of us had a great time. The... More
