If for your children a beach or pool is not enough on vacation, and you spend the days that should be for relaxing looking for activities to distract them, then look no further: All About Portugal has made a selection of the best hotels with water parks in Portugal. Depending on the age of your children, or the existence of animators in some of these hotels, you can even let them have fun while you relax by the pool, with a cocktail and a book in hand. But if you also like adrenaline, we recommend some hotels with water parks also for adults, with slides, a wave pool and water roller coasters, for a day of adrenaline with the family. We have not forgotten about the younger children, and we highlight some places with mini water parks in the pool area, something that will allow you to combine the best of both worlds and have an absolutely unforgettable holiday with children, full of laughter and entertainment. The difficult thing will be to convince the younger ones to return home…
