We went here two days after going to Siam park, we shouldn't have bothered. We should just have gone back to Siam. The rides were uncomfortable and what looked like rust on them and some didn't even have enough wAter in them! Food and drinks were a rip off! Only good thing is the dolphin show! The changing area floor was filthy and there was an awful strong smell of chemicals. Wave pool complete load of crap! Also ants everywhere!

We visited here rather than Siam as we had a 2 year old and an 8 year old and thought it would be more suitable. Water slides are average but more than adequate for what small kids need, have to say tho I think they forgot to heat the pools the day we went, apart from the pool where the waves come (although we never actually managed to catch the pool when the waves went off)' rest of the pools are FREEZING... There is a fair amount of building work going on which I assume means they are making new additions to the park, but this did leave lots of little stones all over the floor which were very uncomfortable for walking on. Couldn't believe you actually have to hire a sun bed!! 2 euros, complete waste of time.. Just add it on to the entrance fee! Food... Oh my days, make sure you have an overdraft, 5.50 euros for the smallest plate of chips you've ever seen!! We on,he had 3 drinks, 1 pizza and 1 kebab and chips and the total was 47euros!! Make sure you check your receipt as well as we were charged for a beer that we didn't even order. Didn't realise you could take your own food as we certainly would have done. But the best thing and worth the fee alone is the dolphin show... We have seen all the usual ones in America etc and think this was much better, they had loads of kids picked out of the audience to do different things with the dolphins which was great, our son was made up that he got picked and got to kiss the dolphin as well.
So defo worth a trip with small kids but really for under 12s

We have seen dolphin shows in Loro Parque, San Diego Sea World and disney show and can say this was the best show we ever saw. The keepers looked happy and so did the dolphins. There is only one show a day at 3.30 pm so make sure you dont miss it.
Besides the dolphin show, the park is just average in terms of slides. The artificial wave beach or wave pool is fun but waves are generated for a very short time which is disappointing.
We visited on a weekday when it was quiet. We managed to complete all slides in 3 hours and then had a long wait for the dolphin show. Biggest let down were the food options. Only one shop selling pizzas, kebabs and burgers was open and was ridiculously expensive.
You can hire a locker at the entrance shop for €6 of which €4 is refundble.
Toilets were clean but the floors were wet and slippery. The park is good for young kids but the water bucket in water castle that overflows and turns can be scary for very young kids.
There are staff present around every slide and activity area except the lava river. My husband took our 3year old on a floating ring round the river but when it came to the end he struggled to come out as the floating ring did not stop. There was no one to pull the ring out and my husband couldnt jump out to stop it because of our son on his lap. Another person who was on a twin ring jumped out to stop theirs and also helped my husband.
The jaccuzi and spa area was a bit of fun but the sharp edges caused a scratch on my husband's ankle. We also saw a few other children crying because of getting a rash or bruise. The parents of these children were left to deal with it as no medical help was offered. Also as advertised, we didnt find this area heated up to 25 degrees.
As i have said in my title, the only saving grace is the dolphinarium, do not miss it.

Nice local water park to Playas but needs some updating and renovating. Good rides, plenty of space to wander about. Sunbeds cheap to rent (2 euros each). Brilliant dolphin show!!
But park looks a little tired and scruffy. Definitely needs some painting and resurfacing of slides done. There was some building work going on when we visited so think they are going to do some upgrades this winter. Good value for money and a good day out.
Ideal park instead of Siam park, if you have little kids or prefer less scary rides!!!

Would recommend! We had a 3 year old, two 4 year olds a 6 year old and two 11 year olds with us and every one of them enjoyed it!! Take a picnic though as the food is pricey and not very good!! Lots for younger kids and adults! The reviews on here say it's bad but it's basically aimed at families in my opinion. If you want thrill then I agree go to Siam park!! But I would return!! As for the no lifeguards comments there was one on every slide and lots walking round so I disagree!
