Fun day in the aquarium, beautiful place. Mini golf included. Nice day out with a great gift shop. Smaller than expected but not disappointing.

A wide variety of sea life, educative and informative. A lot of nice restaurants all around, great view of the sea with opportunities for organised mini cruises - reasonably priced also! A great place to bring the children to. Also a mini golf facility along side the aquarium.

This is worth a visit. Maybe a little overpriced but it is captivating to see such beautiful sea creatures and appreciate their existence.

We paid like 18€ (can't remember it exactly) each and it took us 15 min fron the entrance to the end... Very poor... No sharks like announced but they have lot of souvenirs to buy and stuff like that... Annouing until the end, I won't come back again...

We got to the Aquarium just as it opened so it was not that busy which meant we were able to see, unhindered, all the fish. I loved the Ray pool which had lots of different ray species. There is a pirate theme throughout. We also did the touch pool where you can touch starfish, sea slugs and anemones. They... More

We went there with our one year old son and he was quite impressed. Of course older children will get even more out of it - and adults of course. We especially liked the places where you can be at the edge of or under the big aquarium. There are many different species of fish and other marine animals to... More

We visited on a rare Costa Del Sol rainy day. It was very busy but the reception staff were very efficient and deal with the queue quickly. It isn't a huge aquarium but it has a good number of exhibits and I was impressed that it had the same high standards as UK aquariums. We spent about an hour and... More
