“Pretty generic”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

Nothing really exciting or new. Not the best aquarium I've been to. Dolphin show was quite cool though so worth going to. Also very expensive....like 40-50€ for two people

“Brilliant - not just for kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

Wonderful aquaria, divided into different geographic areas + wetlan birds, sea lions and flamingoes. The dolphin show was really good though I'm not really keen on keeping them in captivity. Great place to go on a drizzly day.

“Really good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

The underwater tunnel is the best part, and Belive me, is amazing.
The best part after the underwater tunnel, is the undarwater restorant

“Really nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

The show of the dolphins was really fun.
El show de los delfines fue muy divertido.
All the animals looked well and healthy, but we couldn´t see the walrus, it was closed. But the rest of the animals were great!
Todos los animales parecian estar bien y sanos, pero no pudimos ver a las morsas, estaba cerrado. Pero ver el resto de los animales estuvo genial!

“Some pretty sad looking animals”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

Beautiful buildings but there were a couple of areas that the animals looked really depressed and in cramped environments. The penguins were the saddest looking ones we saw behind glass underground and in a quite cramped environment; it was as though they were in a shop front. Having said that there are some areas that are lovely, the under water walk ways where you can watch the fish swimming over you and the bird enclosure. Would I go again no, the Biopark was far more educational and the animals looked a lot happier.
