We came here for a day out and it was great, a really fun packed day for all the family. Prices are really reasonable from the entry fee to drinks and food, so much to do for everyone from water slides to aqua aerobics. Great day, very good value for money, will be returning next year.

Brilliant water park, good price and enough rides to keep kids entertained. We caught the bus to Almunecar, but it was a 30 minute walk from the bus station to the park. Afterwards we learnt that we could have caught a free bus which takes you straight to the park. Next time we will book free bus!

Spent a whole day there... Advisable to pay extra on arrival to hire your own ring.. About 7€ for two person one.. As queues get really long in afternoon.

Bring your own food and drink, no restrictions as long as there's no glass..

Parking available on site.. 5€ and get 2€ back on departure..

Slides are all good and queues manageable even for August

Boom online for a discount

Visited this park for the day with our grandkids ages 2 to 11, the park was very clean, food not too expensive, rides were good, we managed to download discount vouchers for entry and sunbeds. Upon leaving we were handed further discounts for return visits. As others have stated the salt water does take its toll, its the next day when you realise just how much your chaffed around the thigh region. Height restrictions apply & are rigidly applied.

We were inland of Malaga and a long way from the coast (and any water park) so we picked one away from the crowds and really close to the sea, in the hope to have sea water and less chlorine. It paid off! While the kids used to complain about the eyes in our pool, here it was no problem at all. This was definitely a plus for us.
They do a family (2 adults and 2 children) ticket for €53 (additional kids have to pay), and huge discounts after 3pm - not an option for us. The second day is half price... this if your skin can take it - our could not.
They have lockers (€6) and a car park (€3). The latter is cheaper than on the street parking if you stay more then 5 hours, which is easy!
Being on the coast it is breezy... good for comfort, but this makes it easy to get burn, and sun cream does not seem to survive salted water very well.
The rides are like any other water-park around - 13 advertised, but 2 are for little children only and 1 is a Jacuzzi... no really a ride, but welcome to relax bruised muscles. It's a bit weird being so close to apartment blocks, the zig-zag stars right in front of the fifth (or sixth?) floor terrace of one... luckily there were not many spectators around. The day we went there was some queuing but nothing to complain, it was a Monday. A few rides need either donuts or mats, these are free... queuing a little while for those coming off.
The kids liked the "toilet" (torbellino - where you carry on going round and round in a ~7m diameter pool until gravity takes over and you land in the hole) and the kamikaze, the water-pipe and the parallel slides (because of the shear speed). I was more of a twist tube type, and they have 4 different ones plus the torbellino. I was a bit disappointed by the wave machine because our local does it better! (and keeps it for longer and there are less people around and they do not allow floats/donuts... ). The real surprise was the "waterfall island": it is deep to get there, the water hurts, but you can also swim all the way around (about 50m, 1.6m deep) and it is peaceful. I think this is where the kids have swam the most in whole holiday (the eye problem elsewhere).
