“Water slides for everyone!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

We visited with a group of family, 8 adults and 4 kids 5-13 yrs old. There are water slides for everyone, there are height restrictions so younger kids might not be allowed to go everywhere they want. In the section for small kids there is a reversed height restriction to keep older kids from playing too rough around the small ones, strictly enforced by the life guards. Speaking of which, there are life guards pretty much everywhere around the pools!

Some of the slides are for the more adventurous, but some are for all and even my 70-year old mum, worried about her back, enjoyed going down the easier ones along with her children and grandkids!

There is a fee to rent the sunbeds and I would advise that you do if you go as a group, to have a place to leave all your stuff - though that means leaving someone there to watch it, too.

“Good slides - horrible walking surface”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

Not a bad water park at all, so why the low score? Because of the walking surface! This is surely a pretty important component of a water park, and this one fails badly. It's pretty much all concrete, and there's grit around, so walking to the [mainly really good] slides can be a very painful experience!
In fact, by the end of the day my feet were red raw. It was agony to carry on walking - I would have loved to go on the slides more but my feet just couldn't take it. Surely this is one of the basics of building a water park.
What a shame. If this place had a pleasant walking surface I would recommend it highly.

“tired and over expensive”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

we visited the water park whilst on holiday in playa del ingles,
compared to water parts in other resorts around the world this park was old and dated, the rides were old fashioned and worn, there is lots of uncomfatable wasted space and everything you want was extra.
There was some sea loins but other than paying expensive costs for a photo with them did not add any advantage to the park.
