Take one massive waterpark. Throw in a stack of knuckle-whiteners. Sprinkle with a couple of relaxing rides. And voilà – you’ve got the Aqua Nevis Clubhotel.
Set over 24,000 square metres, the brilliant Aqua Nevis Clubhotel has waterslides that range from pulse-racers – stand up Kamikaze and Twister – to more sedate affairs, like the Crazy River.
You’re within walking distance of the town centre and beach, but the hotel puts on a free shuttle bus to zip you there even quicker.

Alongside family-friendly numbers such as the lazy river and wave pool, smaller visitors are looked after here too. Adventure Island is packed with mini slides and water sprays just for the little ones, and the pool is nice and shallow. Bigger slides like the Boomerango half-pipe and the speedy multi-lane chutes are on hand for thrillseekers to enjoy as well.
Just so you know, you need to be at least 130cm tall for the bigger slides here. There’s no height restriction for the Lazy River or Wave Pool. Food and drink at the restaurant here are at an extra charge. Although the waterpark is onsite, it is open to the public too.
First Choice Kids' Club
First Choice Kids’ Club caters for 3 to 11 year olds – so brothers and sisters can join in the fun together. And most of it’s completely free. It runs 5 days a week and – outside of peak season – there are parent and toddler sessions for under 3s, too. For your peace of mind, all First Choice Kids’ Club staff have advance DBS checks and hold NVQ Level 2 childcare qualifications. They’re First Aid trained, and there’ll be at least 2 of them on duty at all times. Plus there’s a strict sign-in and out system.
With a kids' section.

My family have just been to the hotel for 2 weeks the hotel is very clean and modern the bedrooms were lovely the air con was fab the waterpark is fantastic some of the food was not to my liking but I managed to find something to eat most of the staff were very nice although there was a rude barman who was full of himself which I reported to the manager who was brilliant my family loved it there the cleaners worked very hard and our room was always spotless we will Defo be booking up again to come back as we all loved itMore
Definitely not four star.
Food average. Entertainment, there was no distinction between adult and children's entertainment although the animation team worked hard it was abysmal. There were a number of unpleasant incidents which the management did nothing to alleviate, children were allowed to run absolute riot. The hotel is in dire need of an adult bar where children should not be allowed even parents need a break. All in all a very disappointing holiday. Would not recommend it.More
Very Mixed Review.
Having had this holiday booked for over a year....we read reviews when we were booking it to make sure we were going to a nice hotel that both myself and my partner would enjoy. It was a 21st birthday present for him which meant we wanted something really special.....unfortunately what we got did not match the review which we had previously read. I shall start at the beginning so that I can give you a full understanding of how we came to only consider the hotel as average. I have been to many all inclusive hotels and expect something great for the prices you pay for all inclusive. On arrival to the hotel, the hotel looked really nice from the outside it had a modern view and looked clean. Check in: Check in was very smooth and very quick although we felt this was a bit too quick as we had to go back and ask lost of questions as to where things were etc. There was someone there that would take you bags to the room but like everyone who checked in with us we did not use this service as the block did not look the best dressed and looked very confused what people were saying to him. Room: Now this was one of the best bits of the holiday, the room was lovely....great choice of colours in the room and the bed was massive....my partner and i could both starfish the bed without touching. The room was very clean along with the bath room. The only let down of the room was that the bed sheets were not changed for the whole week which was not great when using suncreams etc....The bathroom towels were changed everyday which we felt was also not needed and could have been used for 2 days before changing, we hung them up in hope that is what they would do. The hotel is very strict on marks on the towel from make-up etc and they do supply you with a make-up towel but whatever you do dont get anything on the sheets or towels. The rooms to have a safe in them but you have to go to the reception and pay for the key to access the safe which is 36lev for the week. There is also a mini fridge in the room which was great for keeping your water cold but we had only been there 1 night and used the fridge to put some of our stuff in and had a note left for us about not using it correctly as we had bought our own stuff and not used what was in the fridge. Another aspect we did not appreciate was the note keft by the chambermaid requesting a tip for her services we felt this was begging...I normally leave a tip for the cleaning staff at the end of my holiday but under principal i did not on this occassion. Food: Now where to start......Breakfast Breakfast:- Bacon, eggs, sausage....oh yeah very british was the word i was looking for....when i do on holiday I like to try different things and i felt the breakfast was what you could get in your local weatherspoons....although weatherspoons would be far better as the breakfast at the hotel was cold....the only thing you could get that was very hot was freshly made pancakes or fried eggs but you had to wait in a queue of people for 15mins. The continental breakfast which is all you can get after 10am was shocking....no croissants, pancakes, pan au chocolate like you expect...pretty much toast, cereal and fruit. The fruit juice that you could get at breakfast was squash at best....tea was dreadful but tbh i never expect the best tea on holiday and always look forward to a PG tips on my return home. The coffee was ok if you only wanted half a cup as this was all the machine would give you. Lunch:- We ate in the resturant a couple of times for lunch....it was OK once again very british food (chicken nuggets, pizza, potato smilies, onion rings, chicken in different sauces) There seemed to be all the same food all week and the salad bar was a bit of a let down with the majority of the salad looking a bit stale. Dont get me wrong you could generally find something to eat but by day 3 you were a bit bored. Our Thomson Rep told us about the pizza at the pool bar which was amazing.....very small slices but u could have as many as you want and it would easily compete with Domino's a must try if staying here. Dinner:- Once again a bit of a disappointment....if you went all the way to the back where they did pasta in a variety of different sauces and chicken curry etc you weree on to a winner but after day 3 once again it got a bit samey....nothing different and a bit boring. Again a very british and nothing exciting. They did do 2 themed nights when we were there a mexican night which was very nice but missing a few dishes that you would expect and obviously they still did chicken nuggets, potato smilies etc. Bulgarian night which we were really looking forward to was a bit of a let down....were were expecting something a bit different but once again seemed very british with maybe one or 2 bulgarian meats and cheese thrown in for good measure. Pudding:- The puddings were very british also...they were nice well most of them anyway but also so a repeat begin to happen by day 3. Overall if your taking fussy children away on holiday this place would be perfect as they do all very child like foods....you could get chips with every meal. Due to the repetativeness of the food in the resturant my partner and I ate out on 3 occassions to get something different. For an all inclusive i was very disappointed with the food....unfortunately this hotel also does not offer different resturants to eat at like many of Thomson hotels this means the resturant can get very busy with lots of children wandering round with plates in there hands without parental supervision. Drinks:- The only positive of the drinks in the whole hotel was the beer.....spent most the week drinking it due to the rest of the drinks being shocking. My idea of a good all inclusive hotel is making my way through the cocktail menu and liking the majority....dont get me wrong i tried every cocktail on the menu but did not really like any of them and I think this could be due to the measure of spirit they were putting in them.....dont get me wrong if you enjoy half a glass of spirit mixed with a quater mixer then this is the place that you need too come.....I on the other hand do not so did not enjoy them at all. Dont get too excited if you a wine drinker either....really not a fan of any of the wines there....Overall we went out for drinks on most nights onto Sunny Beach strip and they were delightful and not too expensive either which was welcomed seen as we did not bring much money what with being all inclusive. Pool:- The pool at the hotel is very small but i believe that was due to the fact the hotel sits on the waterpark and you get unlimted entry into the waterpark. There were lots of sunbeds around the hotel pool so you never struggled to get a sunbed but they were very close together which is not the best unless you like sitting on top of people. We liked sitting on the terrace as it was much quieter and you could move the sunbeds where you wanted the only problem was that by 2pm if you wanted to sit in the sun you need to go down to round by the pool. Unfortunately there were lots of wasps around which did not always make it comfortable sitting around as you were always swatting wasps away. Waterpark:- What can we say...this was one of the reasons that we booked the hotel as we reallyed like the idea of being able to use the waterpark whenever we wanted. We went into the water park on 4 occassions thought the holiday and it did not disappoint. The water slides were amazing and althoughwe were getting towards end of season they were all open and manned by lifeguards. Throughout the waterpark there are people taking professional picturtes when you come down the slides which are great lasting memories and only 5lev each so very cheap. Our favourites were the twister slides, wavepool, boomerang and blue rubber ring slide.....many happy hours spent at the waterpark. The only downside was that you had to walk all the way back to the hotel for drinks, its great the waterpark let you bring them in but a shame they have not done a deal with the hotel so you can get drinks in the waterpark save all the endless walking around. Overall we were very disappointed with the hotel, they did do a free shuttle bus into the town which was great but very small.....can imagine at peak season this would be very cramped and due to it not running regularly many people would have to walk...which is only 10 mins. We would not return to this hotel as we were disappointed and felt that we have been to many better all inclusive hotels. From experience this felt very similar to a Butlins....they were very good with the kiddies and if you are a family i fell this hotel would be ok for you. Not a good couple hotel but really enjoyed Sunny Beach.More

COULD BE GOOD.....
Stayed in hotel for the last week of the season. Waterpark was fantastic for kids and adults. If the water park was not there, this hotel would be a great disappointment. In the evening after water park is closed there is really nothing to do. The entertainment was awful. Our kids are 10 and have outgrown kiddie dances and musical statues every night. Then came the bingo(not a fan) and then whatever act was on that night. Couldn't bare to stay and watch that long. But no matter how much we tried, we had no option but to hear it all. We spent most nights in the room with kids watching Cartoon Network until 11pm. This was when the entertainment stopped and it was eventually quiet enough for kids to get to sleep. If you have kids that go to bed earlier I strongly suggest a room on the other side from entertainment, which also means no water park view. We were in room 107. Rooms are great. Plenty of room for the 4 of us. Food was ok ish. Not very hot. If only parents would read the signs about kids under 12 being supervised as well. Lots of kids picking up with hands. Food dropped on floors and just left for someone else to clean. There is a shuttle bus into main strip in Sunny beach. 5 minute drive away. Very nice during the day. Bought trinkets for gifts. Great for fake goods (handbags, trainers, watches, clothing. All designer). Not so good at night if you have kids. The main thing I think that lets this hotel down are the guests. Some people think that because they are on holiday they don't need to watch, or, discipline their children. They also need to learn how to speak normally and not bellow across the room to each other. I would not return to Aqua Nevis or Sunny Beach. Visited Sunny Beach 12 years ago and not much has changed quality wise. Just much busier now.More
