WHAT TO DO AT NICKELODEON RESORT PUNTA CANA
So many great options on site for families to take part in and create memories.
Nickelodeon Resort Beach & Pool
There’s a nice, sandy beach for those that want to walk along the ocean. If you love ocean sports, Nexus tours has a beach hut on site for water sport rentals. Another feature at the Nickelodeon Resort beach are the balinese beds. These are plentiful and beautiful, and free for guests to reserve. Next to the beach is also a lovely infinity pool with lounge chairs.
Aqua Nick Waterpark
Families will most likely be spending a lot of time at the Aqua Nick Waterpark. This area features a large splash play zone with slides and the large tipping water bucket. There’s also a lazy river that circles around the splash play zone.
This is also the spot where you can get slimed! There is a mass sliming that occurs daily (3 pm during our visit) where the large water bucket fills with green water that is tipped down upon all the guests. It even turns the water green for a short time. The coloring is environmentally safe according to the resort, and rinses right off your body and swimsuit.
For families that want a more personal sliming, you can pay and book a private slime. It costs $50 USD and is for up to 4 people. After a coreographed dance number, your family will be called up to sit along a bench that is next to the waterpark. A short countdown is given and then the door is pulled and down drops the dark green slime. This slime is slightly different than the waterpark mass sliming water, but still safe and easily rinsed off. They encourage you to rinse off in the pool!
This is actually the separated area of the resort that houses most of the “kids” activities. Here you’ll find the Just Kiddin’ Kids Club, one of Mia’s favorite spots at the Nickelodeon Resort. Here parents and drop off their kids ages 4 to 12 for fun activities. There’s a slide and ball pit, plus numerous play areas. But each day also features structured craft and cooking (snack) times.
Character Central is another area at Nickelodeon Place. Here is where many of the character meet n’ greet opportunities occur. However, I will say that we never saw caracters in the Character Central building. Instead the meet n’ greets occured outside around the Nickelodeon Place main entrance area.
Nickelodeon Place also features the Aqua Nick dining spot, and a shopping store called Knick Knacks. One word of warning, you have to walk through Knick Knacks to get in and out of Nickelodeon Place.
The sports hub is probably the area that Nickelodeon put together for teens who have aged out of the kids club. It’s the farthest building away from the beach, so at the complete end of the resort. The inside building features couches with games on tv, and an Xbox gaming console, plus a pool table, ping pong table, and snack fridge.
Outside are multiple sports courts, and equipment can be borrowed from the Sports Hub attendant. Mia and I enjoyed spending some bonding time here playing pool and a terrible game of tennis. She wanted to do some archery, but we learned that’s only offered as part of the daily class.
If you’re looking for some relaxation, or a way to pamper your kids, Vassa Spa is ready for you. They offer a full menu of spa services, including some great day spa facility amenities (for adults only). I booked Mia a massage for a birthday gift, and she loved it. After checking in you’re escorted to a relaxation room where a heat pack is place on your shoulders while you rest on a lounger. Then you’re escorted to your room and after your treatment back to the relaxation room to finish out your time.
Adults have access to a sauna, steam room, whirlpool, and bubble baths. There are many package options, including special services for kids and teens, as well as some couples treatments in case you decide to drop the kids off at Just Kiddin’ while the grown ups spend some time relaxing.
Daily Activities Guide
One thing to note are the activity guide sheets that are available for guests. These are given to you at check in, but also are placed inside wall holders at a few places around the resort. There are three activity sheets, and they are the full weekly schedule.
One sheet is the Just Kiddin’ activities, showing what times certain things will be happening at the kids club, as well as open/closed times. Another sheet features all the great Nick Entertainment family fun activities, like Mass Slimings and Character Meet and Greets. And the final sheet features more of the fitness and group play activities, like Tai Ci and dance lessons.
Finally let’s look at what to pack for your vacation to the Nickelodeon Resort Punta Cana, and some travel tips for your trip.
