Although this is a nice day out it def needs some work. The toilets are disgusting, most of them the holes in the ground the French seem to favour (although all the French people were queuing to use the one proper toilet!). Also the tiles on the bathroom floor are lethal especially after they've just hosed down the floor! Not a wet floor sign to be seen!
The pool area and water slides were good and clean and the children had fun. The water was very cold though and torturous for the adults even on a hot day!
The park side of it is very tired and needs a bit of a revamp, we've been for the last couple of years and it hasn't changed at all. Still the children don't notice these things!
The funniest thing was the ridiculous health and safety rules. They made the children wear life jackets in the paddle boats in 6 inches of water, while had no net around the trampolines and let the lifeguard perch on the railings one leg each side at the top of the 100foot flume tower! When the flumes first opened there was only one lifeguard who whistled, from the top of one of the flume towers, at anyone doing any wrong doing anywhere on the water slide section leaving them to guess what they'd done wrong!
Can't comment on the food as we brought our own picnic, but didn't think 9 euros per person was too much to get in as you could spend the day there.

Water is freezing. They could do with having a lot more shade. Price of €9 per person is reasonable. It's only two or three pounds more than a municipal swimming pool in England. We normally go in the afternoon after the midday sun. But They run out of lockers when busy. Toilets are shocking.
Chips are good. And the slides are fun. The new steep kamikaze slide needs to be overhauled or redesigned as everyone's backs are red / bruised / grazed by the end of it. Lots of people get stuck on the other rides as the slide surfaces need to be replaced.
The equipment in the dry area is well past it's sell by date. Go karts are a great idea but they don't have proper supervision or a queue ing system so you end up waiting for ages and older kids push past the little ones.
We still go every year as the kids love it. I just wish the management took a few tips on quality and customer service from water parks in America.

We have just spent the day here and on balance thought it was fun, good value and pleasant.

Take in your own lunch & drinks. We took towels & rugs to sit on, but you can hire sunbeds for 2 euros.

Plenty to do, especially for under 10s. My kids liked all the bouncy castles and the (free) go-karts. Food WASN'T expensive.

The only downsides were (a) none of the pools or slides are heated, so the water is cold and (b) the loos (except for the disabled one) are the hole in ground type which we couldn't bring ourselves to use.

Get there for opening (11am) or just after.

A fun and reasonable family day out.

We visit every year and the park is always crowded, expensive but fun too.
Food is fine especially pizzas but a tad expensive. Time your order to miss the huge lunch queues too!

As a young adult couple we went to Quercyland during our 3 week trip around Europe. Firstly be aware, this business does not accept debit cards so you need to locate a cash machine before queuing up to get in. It was advertised in a leaflet at €7 each and we got there to find the brochure (from tourist information) was outdated and the price had gone up to €9 each. Not the worst increase but an increase none the less. There is no smoking in the park and any exit from the park is definite and without paying again you cant get back in. Strange. The slides were good but busy. To be expected really during July. Food was terribly expensive,limited selection and took ages. My partner ordered a pizza and we were told it would be 10 mins. 25 minutes later he asked about his pizza and the chef had lost the ticket for it and therefore hadn't processed his order so we waited a further 10 mins for it to finally arrive. It arrived and was absolutely Tastess! The staff in the café were miserable and looked terribly bored - I probably would have sacked them (being a business owner in the hospitality industry myself). Overall a very average day out.
