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.

All are included except where indicated.
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 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.
These double rooms decorated in soft tones giving them an inviting feel. They come with air-conditioning and satellite TV and sleep 3 with 1 extra bed in a double bedroom. There's also a balcony offering a bit of outside space.
We stayed in June at the hotel with our two year old. Overall I would recommend the hotel for families or those who like water parks. The free access to the water park next door is brilliant and there was a toddler area with slides which was perfect. That was all she could really use but my husband tried some of the bigger slides out and enjoyed them. I would say it's ideal for kids age 5 plus who can use more of the water park facilities. The hotel pools are also great for little ones with two smaller pools and one big one which our little girl had hours of fun in. The all inclusive was great, we liked the food and compliments to Chris the ice cream man - our daughters favourite person. Snacks at the pool bar were a nice alternative to sat down meals. And all you can drink slushys in 35 degree heat very popular! The rooms are clean and modern and housekeeping keep on top of this daily. Cleanliness is something we highly rated here with people constantly going round mopping and cleaning so the place is spotless. Sunny beach itself is a fifteen minute (hot) walk and not particularly picturesque. The free shuttle bus from the hotel was 5 minutes (hot) but quick and right to the centre. A day trip to nesebar from the water taxi on sunny beach was a lovely outing and a nice place to visit. Our only main criticism is the noise in your room from the night time entertainment because our daughter wanted to go to bed at a "normal" time and the night entertainment goes on till 11-11:30 pm, it is audible from all the rooms and we were further away from the stage but could still hear it word for word each night. Perhaps it could move to the sports bar which is further away and seemingly empty. As for the entertainment itself the kids hour is great fun we only stayed one night to watch the entertainment and it was the magician - we left not long after it started. Altogether the climate is perfect and hotel location great for a family getaway!More
We just returned on Saturday from an 11 night stay at the aqua Nevis and the hotel was brilliant the rooms are spacious and cleaned on a daily basis. The pool is great with a pool bar and snack bar that serve really nice pizza. Never any trouble getting sun beds. The action waterpark next door is amazing for adults and children there is so much to do the only gripe we had is that we were told the all inclusive drinks were included in the water park but they are not. You can take drinks in from the hotel if u want to walk back and forth all day. The evening entertainment could do with improving with a few more outside acts coming in. The kids club is great and my 2 girls really enjoyed it. The reps Shannon and Craig are always there if you need them. There is a shuttle bus right outside the hotel on the hour that takes u into sunny beach which is handy but if u miss it then it is only a short walk down that takes about ten minutes. Sunny beach strip is really good with plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from if u are getting a bit sick of the all inclusive. Everything is really cheap too. Please don't take any notice of the snobby reviews on here if your thinking of booking this hotel then go for it coz u will not be disappointed More
Stayed here for a week with husband and 10 year old daughter. Got upgraded to corner suite - loads of space. Hotel staff were all pleasant, entertainment staff were great with the kids. Kids club (British run) was excellent. Food was OK as is buffet style so could always find something to eat. Spa was good and would highly recommend the Turkish bath. Best part is the water park, without that it would just be a mediocre hotel.More
really enjoyed my time at this hotel only downside was the entertainment was a bit lame only a few outside acts in the fortnight I was there, the rest of the time the entertainment team provided it,the waterpark was good but downside u couldn't take food or drink bottles in only the plastic 1s from the hotel,we bought a bottle of coke from the waterpark and the boy didn't open it so when we went the next day they wouldn't let us take it in even tho we told them it was bought the previous day,didnt like them delving into my handbag which wasn't big so obv couldn't sneak things in there,dreaded going in2 the spa 2 pick up the pool towels as ude get harassed about massages etc so was sending the 8 year old in instead lol! food was fine couldn't complain, bar staff stan and pepa were excellent when you got 2 know them ur drinks would be topped up without asking when they were working the sports bar where we spent a lot of evenings as the son loved the football pitch, euro 16 started when we were there so they did screen the games. wi fi was a hit or miss but tended 2 be top notch at the sports bar,pool area was fairly small but hey we had the waterpark aswell so cant moan.room was lovely with a kettle yay!! am in the process of booking 2 go back next yr.More

Hotel is very modern and clean, never dirty floors/spillages etc and the cleaners are always busy working. The rooms were spotless and comfy beds meant a good nights sleep, with a great view in the morning over the water park from a family room. The pool area is clean but not very big, the whole hotel isn't very large and the music played throughout is loud and terrible - often too explicit for families. The all inclusive is good, alcoholic drinks are strong but there is a poor choice of variety, no ciders or ales and only one choice of lager. The food is the main problem with the hotel, by the end of the 4th day it had become repetitive and the quality is poor. Themed nights set in the restaurant were not adhered to and once we got to the second week of the stay we were put off eating dinner there any more. Furthermore, the food is no longer served after 9pm, forcing you to walk to the nearby supermarket for snacks (at 9pm I would go and get a chip butty to save that hunger a bit longer!) The aqua park is great, especially for families and drinks can be taken through as often as you want (no food however). The park is literally on the doorstep of the hotel, a very short and accessible walk in. The staff are kind and helpful at the hotel, including the entertainers but there was insufficient entertainment during the day (especially for kids) and the entertainment during the evening is the worst entertainment I've ever seen. It all appears very budget, with the majority of the nights entertainments done by some talentless members of the entertainment staff who attempt to sing/entertain but unfortunately fail miserably. This is the biggest problem of the hotel, it ruins evenings and causes you to leave the premises and buy drinks elsewhere in an effort to seek better entertainment. This needs improving, quickly! Check out of the hotel is midday, but prices are steep if you want to delay this due to a late flight. You can use all the facilities until you fly which was good though. Overall the hotel was very average, but I feel for similar prices there is better alternatives. I've enjoyed the stay, but I wouldn't recommend the place. Don't get excited about the free wifi either, it's terrible and unusable! More
