Calling all kids – big, little, and the ones dressed up as adults. Get your kicks from whizzing down waterslides and diving in at the deep end? Speeding down the big slides has never been so easy with Spain’s selection of hotels with waterparks. There’ll be none of this pack-your-bags-and-panic to beat the crowds when your waterpark is part of the package. And the lazy river lives up to its name when it’s right next door. So, embrace your inner child and get picky with this lowdown of the best waterpark hotels in Spain…
Hotel Livvo Valle Taurito, Gran Canaria
You won’t know where to stretch your swimming muscles first at the Hotel LIVVO Valle Taurito in Gran Canaria . Throw yourself into the Space Bowl, climb aboard The Pirate Ship, or race down the Kamikaze waterslide at the waterpark. And, when you need to take the excitement down a notch, sandy Taurito beach is only 70m away. Plus, back at the hotel, there’s also a kids’ club for ages four to twelve and an outdoor pool separate from the waterpark for some low-key paddling time.
Compostela Beach Golf Apartments and Siam Park, Tenerife
Stay at the Compostela Beach Golf Apartments in Tenerife to be within touching distance of one of the best waterparks in Europe. Siam Park is a five–minute drive or 10-minute walk from the hotel, and it’s got something for everyone. Adrenaline seekers can test their nerve on the Tower of Power, a slide that drops 28m and passes through an aquarium. Or there’s The Volcano, where daredevils are dropped into its heart of darkness. There are plenty of less white-knuckle water-based activities for those on a family holiday, too. The Wave Palace flaunts the biggest artificial waves in the world – you can actually surf in this massive wave pool – or there’s The Lost City, which has the only pool for babies in the Canaries.
Aquasplash Estival Resort, Costa Dorada
You know what they say about things that come in threes. The Aquasplash Estival Resort counts three pools and access to a giant waterpark on the Costa Dorada. Aquopolis comes as part of the package from mid-May to September when you stay here – its lazy river, surf machine and series of slides are only a 10-minute walk away. You got it, favourites like the Kamikaze and Black Hole are regular box tickers at this park for the picky riders. Kids get their own smaller scale splash park too, where everything comes in miniature, from slides to fountains. Back at the resort, pour the rest of your energy into one of La Pineda’s biggest beaches, just a short walk away. The water-filled fun also comes at a slower pace in the form the hotel’s high tech spa. Swim up some lengths in its indoor pools or take a dip in the Turkish bath for a change.
Any of these take your fancy? Pick your spot and dive straight in to these waterpark hotel deals.
