Had a couple of hours to spare whilst waiting for someone at Malaga airport so my daughter and I went here. There were only 3 hours till the park closed and we were charged 1/2 Price. That was great but, to be honest, 3 hours was long enough to see everything and take in all the shows.

My 2 year old was being very difficult on the last day so decided to take him here! What a lovely day we had. We watched the dolphin show which for me was amazing as I love these creatures, we saw the sea lion show and the tropical bird show which again was great. Was a lovely park and just perfect for my 2 year old. We had the chance to have photos taken with the sea lion and dolphins too. This was my only downfall and why I am not giving an excellent rating. For most of us it is rare that we get the chance to go near dolphins and it is an amazing experience but for them it is a get rich quick so kind of spoils the moment. You are more or less treated like cattle and then have orders barked at you in and out. I appreciate that there is a group but feel this could be done in a nicer way, maybe sit everyone down together and do a little talk and explain things a bit rather than "glasses off! "do this" "do that" "no no" but other than that really pleased I got a photo with the dolphins .

Myself, my husband and 2 year old son visited here whilst on holiday. The highlight is the dolphins, we were able to watch the Dolphins swim before the show and we took some great pictures. The Dolphin show was brilliant, Alfie the sea lion was brilliant. We got to the show early so we had great seats. Apart from the show, visiting the penguins was fun but the Alligators and the Amazon attractions were the best! Look up and see the Bat/foxes brilliant! I think to be realistic you couldn't spend all day here but a great way to spend a morning or afternoon.

One of the hghlights of my trip. €18 entry price can seem pricey however, it is well worth it. Dolphin show and sea lion show are fantastic. The penguins and the amazon house are amazing as well. Got photos taken with the Dolphins which was one of the experiences of my lifetime. Could easily spend half of your day in here, a must visit!!
