myself and my 2 daughters went marineland june 2010,we went for half a day,because we went as part of a day trip with our hotel,as soon as you get in there they take pictures of you stood with a dressed up dolphin,the pic was good but overpriced at 20 euros! so we didn't get it,then we went to watch the parrot show,was ok but nothing really special but the kids liked it,we then went to watch the sealion and dolphin show,we loved it,as it's the first time we have seen a dolphin show,they were selling kids long cup drinks for 6 euros,before leaving we went to get something to eat,we got a margareta pizza between us which cost about 8 euros and it was the worst pizza i've ever had,it wasn't even edible,it was burnt to a crisp,me and my kids did try to eat it but was discusting,when we took it back they wouldn't give us another one or refund,the only thing we did enjoy was the sealion and dolphin show

Compared to say, Sea World in San Diego, this is a worn out third rate marine park. Only highlight was a decent dolphin show. Folks that gave this place positive reviews have obviously not been the larger better parks in the US.

This is a fun day out but the entrance fee is pricey in comparison to a zoo with many more animals. Additionally, the food is expensive e.g. 4.4 euros for a sandwich and 6 euros for a funky shaped bottle of Slush. We had a bottle of water stolen!

There are lots of photo opportunities but all expensive.

The shows were good - there is a parrot show, a sea lion show and a dolphin show.

We visited the park in October time so it was substantially quiter than during peak time.
We bought the tickets online before the visit and saved a little bit on the entry price. The park is well kept and has a number of attractions, although its certainly not a full day visit, more a half day visit. The shows are well done and the kids love them. The best is the dolphin show, the worst by a mile is the parrot show, loads of talk and very little action, and very staged!! Again though the kids liked it. There is a nice small pool for the kids to play in and take a rest and plenty of palces to take your money.
We received 5 free 5E vouchers to spend on food or in the shop. At the food outlet this got us 5 drinks and 2 plates of chips!!! Yes thats right!!! So its very very expensive, so just go early have your half day then haed into Palma Nova for a cheap late lunch!
Decent day out, a little bit expensive for what you actually get and very touristy in terms of prices, but the kids will enjoy, and try and go on a quiet day or time!

We visited Marineland on the hottest day of our holiday but the sun made it perfect. On arrival we were kind of forced to have a picture taken with a man in a dolphin suit. Later my husband brought it for 8 euros! It said it's cute! We went straight into the dolphins and sea lion show which was wonderful. Those animals are so clever. The sea lions were funny and sweet and we just love Dolphins anyways. We later paid to touch a dolphins and have a picture taken which at 25 euros was expensive but we liked it.
The cafe was clean, efficient and the food was basic but nice. I'd eat there again no trouble. The parrot show was funny. I loved the girls doing it and the birds are lovely.
We really liked the ray tank where you can touch the little creatures and interact. There were several types of ray including a shark ray and they were lovely. We spent ages there.
There was a very cute and funny pelican who would let you touch him if he liked you! and he was selective. He hated this little Irish child and tried to bite him when he got close.
The walk through birds and turtles were colourful and cute, and we saw a baby sea lion feeding from his mum in another enclosure.
We were upset that people were allowed to smoke in Marineland. In Britain we don't have as much smoking in public places, esp indoors. I do not believe people should smoke in the presence of animals. It's not fair.
Tips, get to the dolphins show early and sit at the front, in the shade if possible!
Get your own bus to the place. The bus fare was 1.90 euros from Palma on the 104 106 107 and it was a nice ride. Lovely buses very comfortable. Much cheaper than those excursions.
Marineland has it's own beach so take a towel and costume if you fancy a dip in the sea. I was so hot, I'd have loved one!
I agree the place is trying to get more and more money out of you but if the cash goes towards further development or the animals we don't mind.
