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.
Evening entertainment programme
The hotel's entertainment team offers shows on the oudoor stage.

Nice hotel for families
We went to this hotel in early sept. It was my first experience of Bulgaria and I can easily say I would not return. The resort & hotel are not for us. We knew this was a family hotel before we booked but we didn't want a hotel in the middle of the sunny beach madness and this had good reviews. If you have children or like a lot of noise then this is a place for you. We arrived late at night and had some snacks in our room - lovely touch. Rooms are modern and very clean. Plenty of space - we had a family room so had the nice little extras like a kettle. We over looked the waterpark and entertainment stage which was fine for us. Food - overall not bad. Typical AL. There is only one restaurant and a pool snack bar. It could benefit from another restaurant but we could always get a table. Now personally I found the common areas to be messy. This happens when there are lots of kids running around ie things like chips under the tables, plastic glasses floating about near the pool. This isn't the hotel's fault more people not cleaning up after themselves. Drinks - plenty of choice and not bad for AL. As you always see with AL some people were clearly loving the drink more than others. Not a problem we are all on holiday - more so when you are ridiculously drunk and leaving your kids to run around the place.. Entertainment - always something going on. We found the reps to be nice enough and if you got involved then could be fun. Not my normal type of stuff but did keep you entertained for a couple of hours. Also bingo was for a fair old bit of pennies - 700lev when we were there. Waterpark was nice enough. Resort: the hotel is non-tourist area - next to a cash and carry. Its about 5 min walk to shops, restaurants and bars. The main area of Sunny beach is well not nice - I would say it is a mix of Blackpool with the not nice bits of Amsterdam. Seeing a kids play area next to a live sex show bar isn't great. We did hit the clubs once and it was a good night out but I would question the type of sprits they use as I was very ill (not the normal hangover ;-)) for days afterwards. We did eat out a few rimes and the food was lovely every time - large portions, good quality. We also caught the bus to nessabar ( a experience) which was very nice. We also went to khan tent - which was meant to be a las vegas stylie show - hmmmmmm it was okay and kept you busy for a night. My feedback for the hotel would be to look at plastic glasses for children - we saw numerous smashed glasses. Overall a nice enough hotel however this is the first time I have ever been glad to go home. Bulgaria and a family hotel are not for us. I was ill for the last 5 days of the holiday as something kept upsetting my stomach - once home perfectly fine. If you want a nice hotel and like this type of resort then this hotel was defiantly one of the best we saw.More

Not Mediterranean weather. Horrible Resort.
Stayed at the Aqua Nevis from end of May 2014 for 10 days. Positives: The Aqua Park was good when the weather was ok and it was open (Appeared to close whenever it rained). The staff seemed nice and friendly and the hotel porter was very good. Negitives: Worst holiday ever. Don't believe any hotel responses to the posts placed on Tripadvisor. Weather was terrible. Only had one day of complete sunshine and a couple of half days. Most days were wet and cold. Apparently it has been like this at this time of year on several occasions. Relations staying in Spain at the same time has nice weather and arround 30 degrees. Ours was wet and cold in the evenings and occasionally during the day. Sunny Beach itself is horrible. Brash, somewhat crude and unattractive. Hotel was fair to moderate. Typical 3 star all inclusive. You get what you pay for. Advise: Don't bother with Bulgaria. Go to the Med or somewhere else instead.More

loved this place water park is fantastic staff very friendly good very good plenty of choice rooms spot on Kids loved it and can't wait to come back in July I don't thing there is anything bad I could say about this hotelMore
Fantastic holiday in August 2014. This place is brilliant! Food is excellent, beer is nice (and cold) and there is so much to do! The hotel is very clean, (cleaners were there all the time), the staff are amazing and can not do enough for you. Rooms are a decent size and well maintained. Shower was lovely! I can not recommend highly enough for a family holiday - we all had an amazing time and look forward to going there again. The kids loved the pools, the food and the entertainment.More
We stayed there the last week of the season and everything was perfect (except the weather), Hotel is beautiful and very clean, staff are very helpful and friendly, pools and water park very clean and great for kids. The food was very good, I am a fussy eater but I never went hungry so don't pay any notice of other reviews. My husband is in a wheelchair and the hotel was very wheelchair friendly. Holiday was worth every penny. The area is run down but the shops and stalls are very cheap.More
