The greatest family highlights are the hydromassage pool (especially interesting for the parents as you will find 4 hot tubs there for relaxation while you pay attention to your kids), and the wave pool (it is the largest wave pool in the Mediterranean with different wave sizes you will definitively enjoy).

Families will also like Crazy hills and Family rafting as you can use these attractions together. Namely on Crazy hills, you will slide down together as there are six parallel sliding tracks. While on Family rafting 4 members can raft together in a rubber boat down the open slide. Sounds like fun doesn't it?
