Owner description: The Waterpark is a perfect family day out whatever the weather, with both indoor and outdoor pools and attractions offering gallons of excitement for kids of all ages. Bursting out of the middle of Splash Landings Hotel the Caribbean lagoon boasts hundreds of fantastic interactive water features, from lazy rivers, bubbly wubbly pools and crazy cannons, to the thrills and spills of our Master Blaster water rollercoaster! There are also facilities for our smaller guests, including the Little Leak - a shallow area with interactive play features, floats and slides for tiny tots. Plus children under 4 years old can access the Waterpark completely free! There is scrumptious food available, including great value sandwich meal deals and delicious smoothies and ice cream served on the pool side. If you fancy something a little more filling we also offer a pizza and pasta buffet menu in Flambo's Exotic Feast Restaurant, offering great views of the wacky Waterpark.

“Crowded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Went on Saturday, which in hindsight was probably a big mistake!
Facilities are lovely once you have been jostled through the mixed sex changing facilities and into the water park itself. Warm water, clean equipment, variety of water experiences for all ages.
Early on it was fine, as it was quieter, but come 11 o clock, it was like being jammed into a Sardine can.
The Volcano springs and Bubbly Wubbly spas clearly had signs saying no children under 5, yet parents were bringing in babies in rubber tubes and lifeguards were turning the other way. There were plenty of pools for kids and the one reprieve from the screaming were these spas, so it was a shame the rules were not enforced.
What a shame there are not ticketed sessions in order to avoid the rugby scrummage!
They have a lovely cafe there with fresh sandwiches, hot drinks etc but long queues and only five or six tables which were all taken by parents watching children.
We only stayed two hours in the end and retreated back to the quiet of the hotel.

“Fun fun fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Great fun. Spent most of the time there on the master blaster screaming like a girl, and trying to soak unsuspecting kids on the Waterworks... definitely want to go back

“Excellent for younger children”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Not much for older people if your big kids like myself, However the water park is excellent for kids and they will love it there.
