Sunny Benidorm is our port of call today as we head for the Costa Blanca to continue our journey through some of the top hotels that offer waterpark access as part of the deal.
The Magic Aqua Rock hotel is a 4* offering that sits close to Levante Beach in the popular resort of Benidorm.
Offering All Inclusive holidays for the whole family, the hotel has been designed with a unique African theme, which is reflected throughout.
Accommodation at the hotel is made up of a range of traditional double rooms and then larger standard rooms; the latter including a separate living area.
Rooms can sleep anything from a single person wanting to enjoy some time away from home alone, through to a family of five.
Dining is available across three buffet restaurants that offer a range of different cuisines, with a wide selection of facilities that will provide entertainment for all ages.
That includes two outdoor pools – one of which is for children – as well as a large sunbathing area, with a range of activities being based around the water on a daily basis.
Evening entertainment includes special in-house shows as well as live music and quizzes. There is also a children’s club for those aged from 4-12, and an indoor play area.
When it comes to the waterpark element, guests have access to a selection of slides that are available onsite, and which only serve to increase the levels of fun.
As an added bonus, guests who book on an All Inclusive Plus basis will receive one entry per person to the nearby Aqua Natura Waterpark, where there is a range of different slides and activities for all ages.
