Reviewed 18 August 2017 via mobile

Book on line in advance for a slightly cheaper price and speedier entry. We arrived at opening time and there was plenty of parking. A brief queue in the shade and we were in. Plenty of shade from umbrellas and sun loungers, 3.50 E. food was fine but hotdog/burger type. You can bring your own food/drink and leave for an hour. Supermarket/Macdonalds nearby. Toilets very clean and showers. We met some friends, our kids ranged from 8 to 12 they loved it. Plenty of slides. Hardly any queues, shade also available whilst queuing. Good wave machine plus other good pools. Very good for younger kids also. We stayed til the end, the day flew by and much to my surprise we all had a great day. Despite being very hot and busy, the park could take the volume well. Staff were very friendly and all felt very safe and well run. I loved the dancing, very entertaining! A must for the kids and adults!! I really felt good value for money.

This was a great water park. We stayed in Nerja, so we has two water parks similar distance to choose from. We chose aquavelis due to it being fresh water pools. Not a big park but some hear slides and we had lots of fun. It wasn't overcrowded and queues for slides were not too bad. Longest waited at any time was approx 20 mins. Very clean and tidy place. Worth getting a locker. Bit disappointed that you pay quite a price for entry and then get charged more for sunbed (more than they charge at most beaches). The staff were ignorant at times and sometimes overzealous on certain silly rules (I'm not talking safety rules). Then if you are Spanish you are ok you seem to get away with chatting to staff and manage to get some queue jumping done. But when I complained they just ignored me, that to be honest let the place down.

We were based very close to this place, so a 15 minute drive for us. its not huge, but when we visited not too crowded either, unlike other water parks in the area. the rides were all fairly decent with no long queues, which is vital considering the heat etc when we visited. the lifeguards are friendly and accommodating (I tried to take my go pro which they said wasn't allowed but they offered to look after it while I did the ride and collect it at the end rather than go to the back of the queue again. the atmosphere was quite chilled, plenty for younger kids to do as well. Didn't feel pressurised to having family photos and nobody trying to upsell you anything, unlike the other water parks. decent value. I would say the rides are not spectacular but then again, not everybody wants the scare-me-to-death ride. if that's for you head down to Torremolinos and queue for an hour for that sort of thing. Highly recommend it. You can take a picnic or use the restaurant which is actually very reasonable. food is mainly burger and chips, hot dogs etc but they do salads. we have 3 kids, 15, 13 and 7 and they all had great fun. much respect to this place. one final quirk is they also have virtual reality booths with a variety of games which are worth a try, but when the sun is out, personally, I'd rather be outside. staff were all very friendly and appreciate an attempt to converse in Spanish, but all speak very good english.

We visited as a two families totalling 8. The price is reasonable. It can be a bit chaotic when you first got to enter but once inside it's great.
Just big enough for the day but small enough to not worry too much about loosing each other.
Plenty of pool guards who are very attentive. The whole place is clean and well decorated. The parasols have been recovered in palm since last year. There are plenty of places to lie and eat your own food. There are lockers for valuables.
There is VR this year but we didn't try it out.
There is fake turf by the slides so you don't burn your feet whilst queuing. This had been replaced from last year.
You can leave for an hour with a pass. We went to Burger King opposite for lunch.
Good changing facilities with showers etc.
Would recommend.

We visited the park whilst at a stop on our cruise at Malaga. It was about a 30 minute taxi ride and cost €55 each way. I read reviews about the park and we decided to go here as our 7 year old daughter would be able to go on all of the rides with the exception of one due to height restrictions - the longest wait for a ride was about 10 minutes. The first thing I noticed was that there were lots of local people there which gave me confidence and also it was immaculately clean including the toilets. We spent 5 hours there and had a great afternoon- you could hire loungers and also there were lots of static wooden umbrellas which you could just put your towels underneath without having to hire. We didn't eat there but you could take your own food and drink or there is a restaurant. I would absolutely recommend it for families with younger children as they can pretty much use all of the facilities and therefore you feel that you are getting value for money.
