1. TUI MAGIC LIFE Waterworld
This hotel’s snapped up a spot in Antalya’s Belek, which boasts a Blue Flag-waving beach and a bevy of golf courses. Meanwhile, the TUI MAGIC LIFE Waterworld is right next to its own beach, so the waves are just footsteps away. Plus, in the hotel’s grounds you’ll find a line-up of seven pools that’ll have you blowing up your inflatables in record time. And, if that wasn’t enough, there’s also an aquapark that comes complete with seven slick slides. When you’ve had your fill of slipping and sliding, you can take a seat on one of the hotel’s 2,000 sunloungers.
2. Ali Bey Club
The action-packed Ali Bey Club makes its home in Antalya. If it’s a larger-than-life escape that you’re after, this place delivers. How? Well, its waterpark stretches over a mind-melting 25,000 square metres, featuring loads of themed slides including a kamikaze, a space bowl and a black hole. Little ones are covered, too, with the mini beach area which comes complete with pint-sized slides. All that splashing got you feeling peckish? No worries, the restaurant in the waterpark is part of your All Inclusive package. Plus, because this hotel’s part of our SplashWorld collection, you’ll get to ride the slides as many times as you like during your stay.
3. Aqua Fantasy Aquapark Hotel & Spa
This hotel’s pitched up in Kusadasi, but if you’re all about the slides you probably won’t want to leave the grounds to explore. In classic SplashWorld style, your stay comes with unlimited access to the hotel’s squad of 31 slides, its lazy river and its wave pool. Plus, kids can make the most of the mini slides – there’s a pocket-sized treasure island for little Long John Silvers, too. The splashes don’t stop outside the waterpark, either. You’ve got a trio of family-friendly pools, a grown ups-only spot, plus a couple just for kids.
4. TUI MAGIC LIFE Masmavi
The TUI MAGIC LIFE Masmavi, in Belek, is a winner when it comes to watery fun. This hotel clocks up a grand total of 10 pools, as well as an aquapark accessorised with slides. We’re talking whizz-worthy tunnel slides and multi-lane racers where you can compete against your fellow sliders. Plus, the TUI MAGIC LIFE team host fun-filled daytime pool parties, and you can get stuck into beach volleyball on the hotel’s stretch of caramel-coloured sand. For tots, there’s a baby splash pool, too.
