Very small, took us maybe an hour to go right through the place. Many exhibits didn't have a sign on to say what we were looking at. Disappointing and very overpriced.

We all had a great day here it was my son's 8th Birthday and my nearly 3 year old had just as much fun! We brought our tickets from an exchange place as they were nearly 8 euro cheaper per ticket than buying direct, under 3 are free entry. This place is a little on the small side but we... More

Really it is not so large and maybe overpriced. But meanwhile it was not borrowing for our 3 years old child to see it all. The otters were not exhibited :) but we fed the skates, touched the stars and saw lots of different fishes very closely. You can look at the sharks, sharks can look at you :)

Have been to the aquarium quite a few times over the past 10 years or so as the kids find it interesting. It is quite small though they do cram in quite alot of exhibits. Since our last visit they have added a couple of new areas upstairs including otters as well as a crustacean display. There is probably enough... More

We visited this in July and it cost €54 for 2 adults and 2 children. While it was a fairly enjoyable visit it was overpriced for that you saw and the facilities provided. There was a good range of fis on display but the place was very dark, drab and gloomy.

Found this attraction whilst around in the Benalmadena area and decided to check it out. Cost around €15.00 to get in to the place which a tad on the pricey side but still continued as planned. Not a bad Sea Life aquarium, it features a fair share of fish and exhibits, including rays, a touch pool where you can feel... More

The sea life aquarium is quite small and even with a discount we paid 60 euros for a family of four adults. However the exhibits that are there are good, if it was larger with a few more interactive exhibits I think it would be much better! Still an enjoyable hour however just don't rush through!

I was once and that's enough. It's nice place, but i think that entry is too expensive. Fajne miejsce, ale cena jest za wysoka w stosunku do tego co mozna zobaczyć.
