Are you wondering what are the best hotels for waterpark holidays? Whether you fancy floating your way down the lazy river or riding the rapids, here’s where to find the best hotels with waterparks in Mainland Spain, Canary Islands and Balearic Islands.
1. Magic Natura Animal Waterpark – Costa Blanca
Magic Natura Animal Waterpark and Polynesian Lodge Resort in Costa Blanca
When it comes to waterpark hotels in Benidorm it doesn’t get much better than the Magic Natura Animal Waterpark. Looking to book a cheap holiday to Benidorm? This place caters for both sliders and safari-goers at the same time — its onsite waterpark gives you slides, chutes and a ginormous wave pool, whilst its wildlife location gives you over 200 different kinds of animals to get up-close to.
Asif that’s not enough to keep you occupied, there’s also three swimming pools choose from — one of which has an infinity-edge that overlooks the wildlife park. If you’re lucky you might spot an elephant or two during your swim.
2. Globales Playa Estepona – Costa Del Sol
Globales Playa Estepona in Estepona, Costa Del Sol
Along with its recent makeover, the Globales Playa Estepona hotel now proudly presents its very own waterpark. Revamped just before the pandemic, expect to find hair-raisers from the kamikaze to a slippery space bowl.
Although some of the slides here might be a little too big for the kids, that doesn’t mean that they have to miss out on all of the fun. In fact, they’ve got their own mini slides in a dedicated pirate-themed splash area to enjoy instead.
3. Aquasplash Estival Resort – Costa Dorada
Aquasplash Estival Resort in La Pineda, Costa Dorada
With the word splash in its name you can expect to do exactly that at the Aquasplash Estival. This splash park resort is kitted out specifically with water babies in mind. Along with its trio of pools, waterfalls and hot tubs, there’s a waterpark right on the doorstep.
Just a 10-minute walk along the seafront will take you to the Aquopolis where you’ll be given unlimited access as part of your holiday package. Catering for everyone of all ages, under 10s get their own section all to themselves, families can ride in dinghy’s of four whilst the thrill-seekers can fly across the pool on a zip wire.
1. Villa Mandi – Tenerife
Villa Mandi in Los Cristianos, Tenerife
Did someone say free access to one of the world’s BEST waterparks?! That’s right, a sunny getaway to Villa Mandi grants you every day access to the award-winning Siam Park. In just a 10-minutes’ drive from the hotel you’ll arrive at the 46-acre site, ready for the ultimate all-you-can-slide experience.
From dropping down the 28-metre high Tower or Power through a shark-filled aquarium to riding the fastest water roller-coaster ever to be seen, slides here are some of the most diverse in the world. It’s not just about the thrill, there’s plenty of family-friendly options too including the Jungle Snake lazy river and Sea Lion island.
2. Paradise Island – Lanzarote
Paradise Island in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote
If you fancy splashing your way around a slide-packed waterpark and four pools, Paradise Island has you covered. The waterpark, Dino Park, is home to seven waterslides and an exciting splash zone for kids, plus, there’s a little go-karting track, soft play, and four pools to pick from.
The hotel is only 1.5km from the beach and there’s a free shuttle service to Playa Dorada several times a day.
3. Paradise Lago Taurito – Gran Canaria
Paradie Lago Taurito in Playa Taurito, Gran Canaria
Waterpark? Check. Beachfront location? Check. The Hotel Paradiso Lago Taurito is the perfect place to head if you’re looking for a waterpark hotel on the beach. Whether you want to spend your morning riding speedy slides before an afternoon stretching out on the sand, or vice versa — this hotel puts everything at your fingertips.
1. Club Mac – Majorca
Club Mac in Alcudia, Majorca
The Club Mac has eight pools on its doorstep and a waterpark just across the road. This place is the biggest of three hotels in a palm-filled holiday complex, complete with an ornamental lake. The hotels have eight pools between them.
Of the eight pools, five are for adults – there’s a pair connected by a lazy river so you can pool-hop without having to leave the water. Kids get three pools to themselves, including a sea monster-themed splash park. The big-seller here, though, is the waterpark just outside. Here, you’ve got a wave pool, corkscrew flumes and multi-lane slides.
2. Holiday Village Ibiza
Holiday Village Ibiza in Port Des Torrent, Ibiza
The Holiday Village Ibiza offers the ultimate action-packed getaway. Along with a sky-high Aerial adventure course, a day-long sports programme and the choice of three different pools to jump in, there’s an onsite waterpark. Here you’ll find loads of slides, plus a splash area exclusively for the little ones.
While its Sirenis Aquagames waterpark caters to the adrenaline junkies of the group, those who would rather kick-back on the sand with a cocktail in hand can do just that since the beach is only a few minutes’ walk away. Sounds like the ideal All Inclusive waterpark holiday to us!
3. Globales Los Delfines – Cala N Blanes, Menorca
Globales Les Delfines in Cala N Blanes, Menorca
A figure-of-eight-shaped pool takes centre stage in the grounds of Los Delfines! Right next to the hotel you’ll find this water park, it’s packed with a variety of different slides and there’s a chill out area to relax. If you’re staying All Inclusive from May 2022 you’ll have unlimited access to the waterpark.
They’ve got giant slides, water tunnels, the black hole and kamikaze slides. And there’s plenty on dry land, too, like go karts, a play area and snack bars. There’s also a water castle and splash area for the little’uns, which is a tower with lots of water sprays and a little slide.
*Just a heads up, some of the slides at these hotels are too big for little ones to ride and have height restrictions in place for safety reasons. More information can be found on each hotel page.
