Check out my top waterpark holidays for 2019 and give the kids a Summer holiday to remember!
I’m guessing if you asked your children to name one thing they love about Summer holidays, they will say the swimming pool. Don’t get me wrong, kids clubs and organised entertainment are great too, but most kids want to be in the water the whole time! SplashWorld or waterpark holidays guarantee lots of pool time and are the perfect choice for a family holiday. When you book a SplashWorld holiday you will enjoy the advantages of an all inclusive resort with all meals and drinks included in the price, as well as having free access to a waterpark throughout your stay. Some of the resorts have waterparks on site, others are close by. I have teamed up with TUI, the family holiday specialists, to bring you my top ten waterpark holidays for 2019.
Whether you want to relax on a lazy river, jump over the waves in a wave pool, or race your family members on speed slides, I have something here to suit kids of all ages! TUI have 18 SplashWorld resorts for 2019 but I have hand-picked my favourites. All of my picks below have a minimum 4 star rating on tripadvisor, free WiFi zones and are ideal for family holidays. Another added bonus is that there are no hidden extras. All TUI holidays include flights, accommodation, transfers and checked baggage. And that’s not all, you only need a deposit of €75 to secure a booking, with the balance payable ten weeks before departure. I have priced these holidays with two or three children for seven nights in July, but you can change dates, durations, or number of people travelling, by selecting ‘Edit Search’, once you click on the links below.
