We got to Tinapa after our retreat and it was like a ghost town. Tinapa is full of potential and needs the right attention from the government.

It has a lovely view and beauty all over it. It's just so shallow cos you 'll be the only one there if you ever visit.

Visited the water park with friends and our children as part of our holidays and had a good time. The kids did have a swell time using the facilities to swim, from the lazy river, to the slides and wave pool. Refreshments were a bit pricy. Fun place to unwind and relax in Calabar

Tinapa is one of the most beautiful thing that has happened to Calabar in the last 10 years! Lovely African textile shops at affordable prices.

The only places that are still in fiction is the hotel and the pool. There's nothing that you can really see. It's good if you like quiet places.

I commend the vision to develop the Tinapa. It is an ideal place to go with family to have a deserved rest from the hustle and bustle of Lagos. I hope the Government can drive human traffic to the place.
