Both facilities are located in the Pirates’ Paradise Water Park with 2 giant slides, Blackbeard’s Lazy River and more. While the kids are enjoying themselves, you can sneak off to the spa for a relaxing treatment. You might also like to learn the secrets of spicy Jamaican cooking offered in a free weekly class.
