Don't let anyone fool you, telling you that this place gets very crowded. It's only crowded for Italians! As many people as this place can pack in, it's not crowded by U.S. standards. It is small though. Not as many rides or pools as you might like, but the lines are relatively short, the water is super comfortable (I went in early July '15) and prices are very reasonable. The weather in southern Italy is great and you'll enjoy a beautiful, sunny, cloudless day in the hot, dry sun. There are lounge chairs all over for you to relax on if you've had enough of the water fun. As you enter, there's a picnic area with picnic benches. Italians come here early and prepared with picnic TRUNKS, not baskets, of food, and just plop their stuff down on a table and place their chairs upside down on the tables. Let's call this their version of "first come-first served" lunch reservations. Then they enter the park not worrying at all that anyone will take or mess with their stuff. It's GREAT! The park rides close down for an hour during lunchtime, which is quite normal everywhere in Italy. Go and Enjoy!

Met friends who were also on holiday in the area for a day at the waterpark. Not my usual choice of attraction but all the kids were keen! Although very busy, the park was clean and tidy and there were plenty of toilet facilities and refreshment kiosks. Luckily we managed to get sun loungers as we arrived before 9am. The kids were a bit disappointed that weren't many slides and the ones they had weren't that great. Very loud music was played constantly which made it difficult to relax on the poolside. The shaded picnic area was very pleasant (and a lot quieter!)

The place looks runned down. Our room was very humid, even the bed linens were humid and unconfortable. The restaurant food was poor and tasteless. On the other hand, the pool area is beautiful and staff very friendly.

I went in this morning promptly at 9:45 and got told there's no more space because people have been queuing up since 8 am! I understand they reached full capacity but why oh why let the cars go through the whole crappy roads leading only to the resort and not set up a member of staff inform the clients? My sister has paid for 3 tickets and we are flying back to London tomorrow, we have wasted a whole day now searching for a suitable beach! Going back n visit again next year ( we used to attend the water park every year)? Pretty much doubt it!

We visited beginning of June, when the waterpark was not yet open. Staff speaks italian only. Guided tour and walk thru the forest where you will see....old fairytale models and some animals kept in small cages. The guides are very friendly and trained primary school teachers...guessing by the way they talk. So we HAD to attend the tour thru the forest and then got taken to the inflatable bouncy castles. No sign of pony rides or quadbikes. Everything seemed old and run down (park opened in 2000). We did not see any of the afternoon theater/attracions as we could not bother hanging around any longer. The Self-Service Restaurant openend with unknown delay and did not look inviting at all, even thou it boosted a tripadvisor recommendationon the door. Barstaff was rather unfriendly. All in all a rather unpleasant experience, would not recommend at all. What a petty, we went there because we thought it was from Al Bano, but this belongs to his brother.
