“Shopping with leisure activities in same vacinity”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

Spacious and airy shopping experience with good variety of clothes, etc at very good prices. Very pleasant environment. A variety of outlets and shops were in the process of being opened. Huge swimming pools - nice place to hang out with family and friends. Need better transport connections as seem to be a bit out of the way. Nice day trip though if you want to shop with a bit of leisure activities thrown in.

“Best waterpark in Nigeria”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

The atmosphere at Tinapa waterpark is vibrant and even though it is usually quite busy, everyone is clearly having fun and this makes for a really good day out. Join in a game of beach volley ball, have diving competitions with complete strangers or just glide along in the lazy river. Some issues with indiscipline on the slides as this could do with some staff making sure people do not climb up the slides. Also, the food on offer is quite poor however most people pack a huge picnic anyway.

“The prefered locations.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2012

I will rather say, this is the best Leisure and tourism location in Nigeria. It’s about 15 minutes from the City of Calabar, which makes it the best for a meeting and preferred event destination. It is also the best and most peaceful destination in the Country of Nigeria. One can walk on the streets without fear of attack. The staff and people of this Resort are very friendly and nice.
If you want a quite location where you could reconnect with your family and love ones, then Tinapa is where to go. You have everything you need in one location. I was surprised, throughout my stay, there was not power blink. I use to hear there is power issues in the resort, but i discovered there run their own power supply different from the major greed.
The internet hotspot in almost every location was very helpful. It is my preferred location in all of Nigeria for events, meetings and leisure.

“empty mall”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2012

This is a so called mall, well built, but in the middle of the bush, without electricity most of the time ( except X-mas) and a few shops and banks ( many, this is Nigeria!) not worthwile the ride.
It seems to be a real White Elephant
