The Reef pools

In our 1,500 sqm aquapark, there’s plenty of activities and fun for the whole family. Filled with palm trees, cliffs and ocean waves, our aquapark is a true Caribbean paradise where you can find adventure along the clifftops or shelter in the caves during a tropical rainstorm.

Wave pool

The huge wave pool, aptly named Thunder Bay, has a 30 degree drop and stretches all the way from the water’s edge down to the waterfall. The waves here roll during tropical storms, while monsoon rains pour down on any guest who dares to defy the thunderstorms to splash around in the waves.

Kid’s pool

The sparkling cave is where you’ll find The Reef’s kid’s pool – beautifully framed in the lush jungle foliage. Kids can play in the shallow water and gaze in fascination at the cave’s sparkling ceiling. The water is heated to 32°C, and there are also toys and other fun activities to entertain the kids, while parents can relax in our wonderful whirlpool and keep a watchful eye on their kids, since the whirlpool provides an excellent view of the entire kid’s area.

Dive tank

Head out to explore and find the diving tank hidden on the mountain in the middle of the aquapark. From the depths of the tank, you can gaze out over Thunder Bay and the other guests can keep an eye on the underwater treasure hunters.

Whirlpools and steam baths

You’ll find no fewer than 5 whirlpools at The Reef in which you can relax and enjoy the wonderfully festive Caribbean atmosphere. Whether you want to enjoy the palm trees as a couple in a cosy corner, or hang out with friends in a bubbly setting, we have a whirlpool that meets your needs. You can also try a steam bath, and truly feel the tropical heat spread through your body.


Experience a monsoon rainfall as soon as the aquapark’s tropical waterfall opens its gates. Find shelter in the pool above the waterfall where you can enjoy a view of the entire lagoon. Enjoy the tropical surroundings, the easy calypso rhythms, and cool down with a cold drink from our aquapark bar.

Climbing wall

On the outskirts of the lagoon, there is a smaller pool where you can unleash your inner adventurer on the climbing wall. Climb up the side of the mountain through the exotic jungle foliage – and fall straight down into the 32°C pool if you lose your grip.

Outdoor swimming pool

Swim through the underground canal and discover the huge outdoor pool at Sundeck, which is heated to 29°C all year round. You can swim a lap around the pool in luxurious surroundings or sip on a wonderfully chilled drink – with or without alcohol. The pool has a bench with integrated nozzles from which you can enjoy the impressive fountain from the water. From the SunDeck, you also have access to our amazing saunas.
