Well laid out, well maintained. Incredible dolphin show, there were at least 8 dolphins and several handlers. The walk through aquariums were an interesting idea, gave you impression of being under the sea. Well worth the time and money to visit.

This needs refreshing; poor signage, poor information about what you are seeing and the outdoor pools are a bit sad. Not a patch on others although the variety is good, but even the fish and birds and other life do look bored. Do not try the greasy burgers and chips! What a waste of such a good location.

I am from Canada and I have seen a lot of aquariums. This aquarium is kind of like all the rest. There are some neat parts to some of the areas though, like walkways are build through the aquariums so the fish can swim around and over top of you. The Arctic exhibit is very sad because the animals are... More

Take the time to make this a stop on your Valencia visit. There are so many exhibits of interest - beautiful displays both indoor and out. The tiniest fish to the largest- all easy to view. There are different sections for each species so if time is limited , pick what you are most interested in. We loved the outdoor... More

This is a half day outing, not cheap, but educational in a number of ways. The fauna are well exhibited in what are well maintained environments, but it does raise the question about zoos - would you like to live in such a confined space - for the entertainment of others. Without facilities like this, most people would never see... More

It was expensive but we're glad we paid. So worth it! There was lot of information about the fish and the tunnels were really cool. As the biggest aquarium in Europe it's a must see.

DO NOT GO! I would give 4 or 5 stars if it wasn´t for the fact they have whales and dolphins there. Horrible. Poor things. When will humans ever learn to respect other animals? Please look on the internet to find out how these beautiful creatures are caught and how they live in captivity before supporting such an industry. I... More
