yes i am a 13 year old girl writing this!!
me, my family and best friend and our family friends came back from a two week stay at aquashow a few months ago in july (2013) and i must say, this was the BEST holiday i have ever been on!! our hotel room was stunning, clean, comfy and very spacious. we had a fridge in the room which was very handy. the cleaners where very kind and polite. every bit of the hotel was amazing! the pool at the hotel was a good size and was cleaned every other day. there was also a little kiddie pool which was around 15cm deep! the water park was sooo fun!!! it was very tidy, considering it was quite busy. if you like roller coasters well you will LOVE the roller coasters here... we had our auntie with us with a 4 year old, and we where worried if there weren't going to be any kiddie things, but we didn't need to be worried in the end, there was a little helicopter ride which was fun, and a few little play areas which was great!! he wouldn't come off them!:))
at night time there is awesome entertainment on every day for all ages, these include: different types of quizzes, karaoke, magic shows, pajama parties, sleep overs and more.. there is also a games room and a playstation which looked good, and a gym which was fab!
the buffet was yummy, but it was the same everyday, there was also a menu which is nice, but a limited selection, and no kids menu. also, the prices of the food and drink was a lot. (keep reading)
there wasn't many places to walk from aquashow apart from two restaurants across from each other that where both quite cheap. i would really recommend 'Os a Gostin hos' about a 3 min walk to the right.
when we go on holiday we love to walk around at night and go out, but here, we had to get a taxi to everywhere... but its worth it, Vilamoura is stunning, very posh, the marina is beautiful and the restaurants are delicious!-but quite expensive:/ Quarteira is a good place to get the bus to because it is a bit cheaper and there are a few supermarkets there which are VERY cheap. - at aquashow a 1ltr bottle of water is €3 and a little supermarket in Quarteira a 1ltr bottle of water is 20cent:O
there is one coach in the morning from aquashow, to Quarteira that takes you to the beach for free. it comes at 9:00am. another later bus would have been handy but there isnt. ask at the reception there for more information!! the beach is really good, if your like me and hate beaches this beach isn't like that... the waves are massive, and great to jump over!! the only thing is, is that you have to pay for a sun bed, but there is lots of space to put you towel on the sand though which is alright. another good thing about the beach is that across from it, is a cheap shop which you can get a bucket and spade from, lilos, food, drink, ice lollys and lots more!!
hope this helped for anyone who is going here!! me and my family had an amazing holiday here. i would definitely recommend this hotel for a family with children!!
i will definitely take my kids here when I'm older. x
