The island of Crete is our destination today for the latest in our selection of hotels with waterpark access, with our latest option being one that offers fun for all the family.
Located on a rural hillside overlooking the bay of Elounda, but still only 1km from the nearest beach, the 4* Elounda Waterpark and Residence Hotel is a stylish base from which to enjoy a break in the sun, with the stunning views available being one of the major selling points.
Offering Half Board and All Inclusive breaks, the hotel offers a range of different accommodation options made up of apartments and larger villas that can sleep as many as six people plus an infant.
The most impressive two bedroom villas can also be booked with access to a private pool.
Dining is available at the main buffet restaurant located within the hotel, with a snack bar that also offers quick bites to eat during the day. For those on a Half Board break, it’s only a short trip to the centre of the resort where a number of other restaurants can be found.
The hotel features three outdoor swimming pools, including one for children and another that has a separate children’s section.
In a new addition for the 2017 season, the hotel has added its own small aquapark, which includes a selection of slides that are sure to keep the youngsters entertained.
Alongside an air-conditioned gym, the hotel offers a range of sporting activities such as aerobics and mini-golf, with a spa for those who prefer to relax whilst away in the sun.
Entertainment is provided every evening and includes a mix of options from in-house shows to live music and mini-discos for the kids.
Children also benefit from access to a kid’s club for those aged from 4-14, with a playground also available.
