The park itself is wonderful. I could spend all day relaxing in the lazy river...I could, but instead I'm fighting off unattended children. Jumping, yelling, screaming, throwing things etc. Maybe a specific time or specific day for adults only?

From the gate coming in.the security was very rude and condescending..i feel the staff needs to be retrained in customer relations! Other than that, the park was very nice..

Nice and warm. But expensive and crowded. Make sure to get there very early; otherwise every single sunbed will be taken by locals (if I were a local, I'd do the same). You are not allowed to bring your own lunch to the park, so...More

I'm not sure what you mean by free days. Floaties are ok, outside food is not allowed. (According to their website) I've seen people bring food for little kids inside the park. Perhaps being discreet about it.
