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 at the restaurant here is at an extra charge, drinks are included. 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.

Great family holiday!
Family of 2 adults and 3 children age 5, 3 and 1 staying mid June 2015. We didn't arrive at the hotel until the early hours of the morning so was pleased to have checkin dealt with very quickly. It was a nice touch that there was a food parcel for each of us left in the room containing a croissant, piece of fruit and bottle of water. We had a family room with sliding doors and were very pleased with this and also to find that the rooms are kept very clean with the cleaner coming in each day to tidy up and make beds etc. The sheets were also changed half way through our week long stay. The restaurant was lovely and provided a great selection of food each day to meet everyones tastes. We were a little apprehnesive about the food having read some other reviews on here but can honestly say we didn't have any problem with anything and really enjoyed breakfast, lunch and dinner. The staff in the restaurant work very hard and are always on hand to help out or answer any questions. The manager in particular was very helpful and took his job very seriously. We used both the hotel pool and the water park and both were great for the children although as a few others have said the water is a little cold but once the sun is out it soon warmed up and the kids all loved it. The downside to the water park is that the all inclusive is not valid when inside. You could take drinks from the hotel in with you though just not any food. Our children who are very shy didn't use the First Choice run kids club but we met others who did and couldn't praise them enough. We met the kids club staff on several occasions and they couldn't have been friendlier making the children feel at ease straight away. We also made use of the hotel shuttle bus into the centre of Sunnybeach on several occasions, this was a great idea on the hotels part. We did also walk there and it only took 10-15mins. If cathcing the bus to return to the hotel then be aware that there does not seem to be a proper queing system and as the bus pulls up it is a 'free for all' and unfortunately some people even though they hadn't been waiting as long as we had barged past us onto the bus! This is not however a hotel issue more a case of people remembering their manners? The evening entertainment started off at 7.45 with the kids entertainment program. this was usually dancing and party games. It was a shame that they didn't try to aim it for at least some of it at the yonger children. The games tended to be things such as musical bumps or statues or hot potatoe. It was only the older children who really understood what was going on at these times despite there being more younger ones than there was older. After this the bingo started arounf 8.45 with really good prizes around 350lev for a line and 800lev for a house. The bingo tickets were sold between 8-8.30 and they are very strict on not selling them after this time as presumably with such high prizes it does take them some time to calculate the prize money etc. After the bingo there was then an adult show (singer, quiz, hypnotist etc) starting around 9.30-10. Overall a brilliant holiday and for the money we paid it was great value for money and we definitely want to go back in the future. Would definitely recommend this hotel to others.More

Not a family hotel
Stayed here for a week paying extra for a family suite with water park view and wish I had not bothered! This hotel is crawling with children not supervised by adults! They run all over hotel up and down lifts! My 2 year olds buggy was jammed in the lift by two small girls no older than 9!although hotel has signs no children under 12 should be without an adult..this is not payed any attention to! Children are left to go to water park alone also! Having requested a family room that's what I got although rooms clean the family rooms are right infront of main entertainment noise went on to 3am most nights had to complain about noise on 2seperate occasions to be told that these ppl were on holiday too. glass smashed in above balcony swept down to mine now I have a 2 year old this is not acceptable! Hotels entertainment is not upto much either they have bingo every night that doesn't begin till 9pm but u can not buy tickets after 8.30 for some reason as me and my partner attempted to one evening well before it was to start but where refused! Told it was too late!i was flabbergasted as the kids entertainment had not finished yet! I would recommend family's with young babies to avoid this hotel!! Kids clubs ran by teenagers with no clue! Really disappointed with this holiday and the service of hotel!More

Lush family holiday
Family of 5 adults and 5 kids arrived at Aqua Nevis 6th June early hours in morning reception staff were very friendly and got us booked in our rooms very quickly. The hotel and rooms were spotless and were cleaned everyday. There was a good selection of food that was well presented and catered for all tastes. The puddings were lovely and there was always fresh fruit with every meal. The water park was really good kids and adults loved it,,, only down side is that the all inclusive does not apply in the water park so it depends on where your sitting as to how far you have to walk back to the hotel for a drink which wasn't to bad for us as we just took turns,,food is not allowed in the water park unless bought from there own bars and restaurants. Your bags are searched on entering the water park to make sure your not taking in food, a bit much I think, this is the only all inclusive holiday where a major place in the holiday is not included in the price. Overall though a brilliant holiday and would definitely recommend it to others and would go back again.More
We arrived early hours in the morning and where met by a porter who took our cases to our room. We had notified the hhotel when booking about 2 birthdays and had a bottle of champagne in each room. Our family room was great the black out curtains where a godsend with us having a 2yer old. Rooms are modern andbed are comfortable. Reception staff where lovely and we'll dressed. We went the 8th June and the resort was great as it was not too busy their was no cues. Their is a great selection of food including a buffet for children that is at the right temperature. Their is a lovely lad called Chris who serves the ice cream he even waives you off and gives you a hug before you leave the hotel. before going into the restaurant they give u hand sanitiser which is great. We had 2 birthdays while we where away for 30 lev they will make a cake fornyou decorate a table and give u champagne. We went all inclusive which includes a wide range of alcohol and cocktails. We went as a party of 6 aduts and 2 kids unfortunately the kids entertainment age was only between 3 to 12 which was unsuitable for our children. The daytime a entertainment was football, water polo and such things as cocktail making for adults. The pool was far too cold so much so my child would not get in.night time entertainment was repetitive for children and they played games such as musical statues and other games that younger children wouldn't understand then it was followed by bingo the prize money was great however it took quite a chunk of the night away when the kids got bored. During the day if u did not want to sit by the pool you can sit round the shaded entertainment end however their is no music played. Their where a couple of acts on a night a singer and a hypnotist their was supposed to be a 60s70s and 80s night however this didn not happen and the reps and entertainers done the entertainment. The entertainers for the hotel where very friendly. However a couple of them where very enthusiastic especially Oliver, deano eva, Anastasia are the only few that stood out their where a couple who were less enthusiastic and looked like they didn't want to be their. Their is a shuttle bus outside the hotel that will take you to sunny beach every hour however every time we turned up the minibus driver he took us straight away. On one occasion we were walking back as we thought we had missed the bus and he recognised us and pickednus up. We where told by staff it was best to get the bus to sunny beach but we found out it is only a 5 minute walk down the road. Their is a supermarket straight opposite that is open late and very cheap Their is a spa attached to the hotel and you can get a sauna, steam room , Turkish bath massage and facemask for Â£35 which is great. The water park attached is amazing and the water is a lovely temperature I would suggest going to the water park is the first thing u do as its mutch better to sit their than around the hotel pool. You can also take drinks from the hotel to the water park. We want to khans tent which was amazing it is a must for couple or families spectacular entertainment make sure you buy the tickets from the booking office along the strip rather than the reps as it 35lev cheaper per person and you can choose what day you want and they pick you up in a private taxi. Their is a swap box in the reception which is meant for people to take things out such as toy and sun cream nappies e.t.c as long as you leave something when you leave. Unfortunately I was very disappointed to see while we were waiting for the bus to the airport the reps where going through it and picking all the things out they wanted and leaving things they didnt. I went into the toilet and one of the reps had all thsun cream and aftersun e.t.c and said to me look at my freebies it saves me money. So I would suggest if you have anything to leave to give them to a family that are staying their. Overall the hotel and staff are great however it was let down by the entertainment.More
We stayed at the Aqua Nevis in June this year. A group of 5 young girls. The hotel was everything we wanted and more! The hotel was clean and the rooms were fantastic and looked after well by the maids. The food in the hotel was delicious and they had something for everyone. The pools were beautiful and the water park was amazing. We had rain one day, so the hotel kindly put on a free trip to a local shopping mall which was nice. The hotel gave us the option for late room checkout on our day of departure for the small cost of 12 lev per hour - brilliant. The free shuttle but was great and very reliable. The only downside was the entertainment - probably the worst we have ever seen, but the kids seemed to enjoy it. The wifi was a bit hit and miss. But, overall, we all had an amazing holiday! Tips: the 'strip' on Sunny Beach was crazy and you get hassled by promoters, ALOT! Also, be careful when ordering drinks out in the local bars; Bulgaria have 'happy hour'. We asked for 2 cocktails and ended up with 4, which they demanded we paid for.More
