“a nice place but”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

a nice place to visit when its hot but the prices are very high close to 20 eur for adult and you need to buy food from inside wich bring the bill per person to 30 eur so if you are a family of 4 you must expect a 120 eur to have fun in water...

“The worst water park ever”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

We came here with some reservations following mediocre reviews but needed to cool down and thought it cant be that bad. It was.
We arrived at 11am to find only a few slides open. The 'big' slides did not open until 1 and we got completely bored and fed up waiting in the meantime. If we had only been there for half a day we would have been completely ripped off.
Our excitement when the slides opened didn't last long. The kamikazee was below average and the rubber ring slide next to it did not have enough water to get us down. I got stuck on every even plane with the staff having to jump in and give me a push!
The number of slides is low, even when they are all open. Excluding the three children's slides there were only 4 slides. There was a wave pool and lazy rapids in addition to these but they were unremarkable. The point being dont plan on making a day of it!
On the point of getting home, be careful here. The park is not on a main road so dont expect to flag down a taxi. There is a free shuttle bus from the city centre so it would be worth finding out the times for this before you go.
The facilities are clean but primitive. Unlike some theme parks there is no wrist band money option or even lockers for that matter. Instead you leave your possessions with the man in the shop for a fee. Whilst nothing was stolen the issue for us was the inconvenience of having to trudge back to the shop dropping wet, asking the man for our stuff, digging out our money, going to get a drink and then having to go and put the change back.
The other huge issue for us was the poorly designed walkways. For some unknown reason they had wooden walkways. This made walking unbearably hot to the point of us feeling we had third degree burns on our feet.
Despite all this the park is clean, but very unremarkable.

Messaoudi A, Responsable relations publiques at Oasiria Water Park, responded to this review, November 11, 2012
First of all, we would like to thank all the customers who took some time to review our park. More than 82% of them had a positive appreciation of our facilities.
Here is a recap of our rides, slides, operating hours and security policy.
Oasiria waterpark operates 7 pools (including 2 pools heated all year long, one is an indoor) spread on a 25 acres landscaped park. This large size combined to a high density of trees and other plants may sometimes make it difficult for guests to discover the entirety of the park.
The pools run a total of more than 9,000,000 liters of water. 17 slides are installed within or around the pools. Our tallest slide, called Kamikaze, provides a 25 meters fall - the height of a 6 story building!
All slides are operational from the park opening at 10am until its closing time at 6pm. Guests are free to stay within the park until our last complimentary shuttle at 7pm (when entering the park, guests are given a map with facilities and outlets details, shuttles schedule).
In addition to the 25,000 sq.ft. waves pool (operating waves for 7 minutes every 15 minutes from 11am to 6pm) and the 500 yard rubber ring-ride, a new fast rubber ring river has been introduced this season. For technical purpose, this new attraction is operated daily from 1pm to 6pm.
As the first amusement park in Morocoo and the largest pools concentration in Africa, security is our first concern: our staff includes a team of 30 professional life guards, all the facilities (including the walkways) are consistently maintained and water quality tested 3 times per day, belongings are kept in a locker room which is guarded.
Above all, most of our energy is invested into guest satisfaction. This is probably why since its the opening in 2005 Oasiria has welcomed over 700,000 people.

“A good day but expensive!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

We visited Oasiria twice as we did not have a pool and needed to cool down from the 47 degree August heat.

The water park was almost empty - we would often be the only 2 people in the main wave pool or in the lazy river. The park tended to get a little bit busier after 2pm when the entrance fee dropped a bit... but this was mainly an influx of locals.

The shuttle bus from the Koutoubia mosque was handy - it runs every 45 minutes (ish). The thing to watch out for at the pick-up point is that independent taxi firms wait at the bus stop and try to get you onto their bus... The Oasiria bus cannot be missed - only get on the bright blue buss that is covered in 'OASIRIA'... not one of the other taxi's who are looking to charge!

The water park was very expensive. For a couple it was costing us 440Dh a day to enter, and the food was more expensive than in the rest of Marrakech... This is to be expected though as the park is isolated - you cannot bring your own food in!

We enjoyed the wave pool, and spent many hours on the lazy river - although watch out for the tiny frogs! We also enjoyed the crazy river slide and the rest of the slides too! There is also a bar selling drinks and crepes/waffles that you can swim up to within the main pool.

We would recommend a visit to the Oasiria water park, but if you have a large pool/swimming complex as part of your hotel you can probably give it a miss...

“An enjoyable day with 3 kids!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

We went to Oasiria twice during our recent visit to Marrakech. We used the free transfer which on the whole was fine except for the mad scramble to get on the bus for the return journey, however in fairness on our second trip the park had laid on two buses which was a relief. Not everyone likes to queue like us English!

The children loved the slides and the pool. We found it a relatively expensive day out but it was so hot it was lovely to be out of the heat of the city. The park was spotlessly clean and although most of the staff spoke little English this did not cause us any problems. The lifeguards were quite strict but again this did not cause us any problems. The park was not busy and we enjoyed both of our visits.

We hired a private lodge on both occasions which provided us with shade all day and you could order drinks and food from the restaurant without having to move!

We did take bottles of water in with us the staff did search bags but did not seem concerned that we had these on us.

Would go back if we were ever in Marrakech again.

“Relaxing In Luxery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012 via mobile

Very nice waterpark, very clean and well maintained. Relaxing, with a quiet area for adults. Great place for adults wantingto relax. Even comes with private booths you can hire to relax in.
There is not many slides and can be slightly painfull on the way down, but they do the job. There is a also a fantastic lazy river and wave pull to relax in.
Little pricey for food and difficult to find somewhere open. Took me 45mins to find an open food bar as the park was deserted and it was mid July. So i get the impression it's not a very busy waterpark. Be warned, you can not take your own food inside.
