“As good as it can be with caged animals in it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Loro Parque is, within its space and means, a very good place. By that I mean that the animals seem very well cared for and the environments created for the different species (of land animals, that is) are awesome. But let's face it, yards are yards, and for animals that wander miles and miles in a day... Well, that's simply not enough. And when I saw gorillas and chimpanzees in there, I couldn't help seeing myself in there, and did not like it much. Nevertheless they are "safe" and taken care of there, so that's a plus, I suppose.

I specified the re-created environments for LAND ANIMALS are good, because you get to see nothing special when it comes to dolphins, orcas and sea lions... Just the good ol' blue pools.

The shows... Well... Shows they are. The animals get some stimuli, and that keeps their minds busy.

The Orquidario (Orchid Garden) was perhaps the biggest disappointment. With such a perfect climate for orchids, I was expecting something remarkable indeed. If "Mostly Commonplace Phalaenopsis Garden" is what they mean by "Orchid Garden", then they did hit the nail on the head. Little else was to be seen in there, but then again, Loro Parque is not a botanical garden.

The gardens and other areas, though, are meticulously clean and neat. Staff were friendly and the restaurants and bars scattered around the park are by no means as expensive as I thought they would be.

The Thai Village, Katandra Treetops, AquaViva and the several Ficus specimens in the park were the most interesting features to me, yet surely not the most popular.

If you are in Tenerife (Northern Tenerife even better) for several days, it could be a good choice.

“Fun day out away from sun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

A lot of animals to see, the best Dolphins, Seals and Orcas shows i ever seen. U have to check the hours for the shows and make your way there. There is a Parrot show as well, but i found it more for childrens, but again ... something different. Bought the ticket as Twin with Siam and got a good deal!

“Must see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

We enjoyed everything on our visit in Loro Parque. Amazing shows, staff were helpful and friendly. We traveled from west coast so it took us 2hrs to get there but absolutely worth it! We would love to return there!

“Well worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Visited loro park with friends while in tenerife, well worth it! We did the discovery tour also with lunch (26 euro extra) which gave you more of an insight into the treatment of the animals and premium seats at the shows, as well as a 3 course lunch. Daura is excellent, if you get her as your guide you are lucky. So much to do and see here, definitely worth a visit!
