Having lived in Marbella for the last 7 years and making regular trips to Aqua Land in both Mijas and Torromolinos, why oh why have we never been to this little Gem!

We arrived with another family with ages from 4 to 12 at 11am. No queues what so ever and this remained throughout the day with no more than 4-5 people waiting. What a breath of fresh air.

This park is so much smaller than the other 2 here but as previously said by another poster we probably did 4 times as many rides in the day with the lack of queues and at €53 for the 4 of us, €11 cheaper than Mijas and dare I say it, better rides, especially "Niagara" which is a jaw dropping ride on a single or double Ringo. This ride had a 150cm height restriction and the rest were 120cm. There are enough rides here to keep little ones happy and teenagers as well as adults.

A great day out in a very clean environment, well worth taking your own drinks and food and I couldn't grumble at €5 for 2 sunbeds and an umbrella.

This is hard to find but take exit 106 on the N340 (Primark exit) and you will see it.

This park is simply one of the best in 'its class' and don't be mistaken - it is not the Dubai Wild Wadi nor the Atlantis at the Palm . These 2 are in a different class altogether.

We arrived at 1pm on Thur Aug 15th with our 3 kids (7, 10 & 15) and their 2 cousins (5 & 9) and their parents. Paid Euro 72 and they paid 52.

This park is small but very well designed and very well managed. Very friendly, helpful, and cheerful staff, yet when it comes to safety, very assertive and firm. They were present everywhere and all the rides, slides and pools were properly supervised - very safety conscious indeed. AND most of them spoke a bit of English!

Unless you are really adventurous there are plenty of rides, pools, play fountains, children's paddling pools and even stage entertainment for everyone. If I can remember correctly there are 7 water slides with varying degree of speed, length, slope and scariness + a big pool with waves operating at various intervals + little slides for the little ones and other little pools.

The grassed terraced picnic area was great - plenty of tree shading and even some privacy!
Alternatively, one can eat at the bottom of the terraces with benches and tables fully shaded.

On stage , facing the wave's big pool , there were character performers (Dora the Explorer & Tweety Pie ) with a DJ dancing & singing and leading the dancing crowds in the pool. Entertaining party like music was played all day - carnival a la fiesta all over!.

Tips & info:
1. The park is great for everyone but mainly aimed and suited for children and perhaps teenagers up to the age of 16 - they can spend all day without being bored. Still very much enjoyable for older children and adults alike but I would say for a max of 4-5 hours.

2. Parking is free and plenty of it.

3. Food quality & pricing (4 , 6 and 8 euros for diff sizes) is reasonable and pretty decent but mostly burgers, Kebabs and chips.

4. Slashes cost around Euro 3.70 but you can refill for 2.70 and ice creams cost Euro 3.50.

5. You are allowed to take your own drinks and food and there are great grassed picnic areas + benches.

6. Went in midweek and the park was almost full - hence try to avoid weekends to avoid queuing for the slides.

7. There are lockers - but pretty small.

8. As for the inflatables (donuts) used for the slides you can either wait for 5 to 10 minutes until you get one or you can rent one all day for 5 Euro. Better rent!.

9. For 2 sun loungers + an umbrella it will cost you 5 Euros.

Room for improvement - inside the park I would say the floor tiles around the areas where the 7 slides start is a bit slippery with algae developing and I saw a couple of kids falling - this needs thorough regular cleaning to avoid any nasty accidents. Outside the park - since the park is in Algeciras city itself but surrounded by several A7 / N340 interchanges it's not that easy to find as there are no signs on the road - a few billboard signs would be a great help within a radius of 1km.

As we were leaving the park I had already decided to give a rating of 4 out 5 but saw something that changed my mind. This gentleman in front of me was struggling to walk and his family were trying to help him. Next an attendant appeared from nowhere and told the man to wait! I decided to wait and see what happened! A few minutes later the attendant returned with a Golf Buggy and gave the man a ride up to the car park! This was truly moving.

All of us thoroughly enjoyed our day and the kids in particular can't wait to go back again.

Full marks to the designers - full marks to the management - and above all full marks to staff. Keep going and keep improving!.

As they say 'Small can be beautiful after all!' .

Clean, reasonably priced, not too busy, easy to get to, food was not expensive but of a high standard, great day out. My 3 and 6 year olds loved it.

A great park for families. Children under 95cm do not have to pay & entry fee is reduced after 3.30pm. However i would recommend getting there when it opens as it makes it easier to find beds (for which you pay €5 for the day). A good variety of slides for adults and children. A great wave pool, massive jacuzzi and little pool for the children. Food is expensive so i would recommend taking lunch with you. After 4.30 there were a few dance/ sing alongs (in the wave pool) which were great fun!
