Best Family Hotels with Waterparks

waterpark holidays with On the Beach

Our favourite waterpark hotels

Asking the difference between a standard pool and a waterpark is like asking the difference between plain and stuffed-crust pizza. One’s just better. Sure, you can (try to) elegantly climb down the steps, or even dive-bomb into the water if you fancy, which Sandra on her sunbed might not be too thrilled about. But wouldn’t you rather make a more exciting entrance, in a place where regular swimmers are the ones getting the funny looks? A place where the bigger the splash, the better? Yeah, there are usually splash parks and lazy rivers for the little ones, yadda yadda, but let’s get to what you really care about. The massive, twisting tube slides and water rides that make your stomach turn - because waterparks aren’t just for kids. We’ve got plenty of hotels with waterparks, and they all get a big thumbs up from us and the guy at the top of the corkscrew who tells you when to go.
