“Great”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Went to the Marina Parc last May (2012) - bit late, I know for a review, but better late than never. Had a fabulous time. Food was good, staff very friendly and helpful. The waterpark wasn't open at the time but nevertheless has a great time. My sister and her family are going to stay there in May this year on my recommendation. I'm going back in September - can't wait.

Better late than never to write a review, after reading all the negative reviews myself and my partner were a little nervous about staying at this place, all as we can say is DONT BELIEVE everything you read. This complex is a superb place to relax free in the knowledge that your kids are safe, the food is of a good standard, the animation team do a wonderful job entertaining everyone. We heard people complaining about ants, the food, the entertainment! Why? If you don't want ants about you DONT SPILL YOUR DRINKS! The food is spot on, the entertainment team work tirelessly, if you want a 7* holiday pay 7* prices it simple! We as a family of 3 will definitely be returning.

Hi we travelled to this hotel a couple of months ago stayed in a double room and it was really small at first we coudnt find the second bed Lol! pool was really good especially the one up at the restaurant as it was quieter! The restaurant was really good their was different things on offer each night from barbeque nights to spannish nights! The garden areas were really clean and well looked after. We would like to give the barman Xavi a big shout out as he always had a smile on his face and he always had a few jokes to tell. The water park what can I say about it well it was great down the slides every two minutes and the boomerang like falling of a two story building haha! The local beach about 5 to 10 minutes away was the most beautiful beach i had been at in years overall we had a great holiday and would recommend it to anyone!

Me and my family spent 2 weeks in Menorca and had the best time ever there! The Anamation team were fantastic, always made us laugh. My 2 children really enjoyed the kids club with King Olly, Little Miss my 5 year old loved Olly! He was fantastic! The staff were brilliant, the food was really nice, always something to eat. The water park was amence! The kids were really landed! My son who was only 5 m at the time didn't like the pool as it was too cold (well what do u expect in Oct) my 16 year old nephew was really happy with the activities and it kept him occupied for the 2 weeks! The evening entertainment was excellent, had my 8 year old son in stitches! The kids really enjoyed the kids disco too, especially the songs (veo veo) this holiday was the best so far, I couldn't have asked for anything better! Our villa was absolutly out of this world, we didn't know we were staying at a villa, so was a big suprise! The maid bought us clean towels every other day, and cleaned the villa regulary! We had a problem with ants, but as soon as I asked a member of staff, they sorted it out straight away. 3 months on and my children are still talking about the holiday, we would defo go back! Had the best time ever! Bar staff were really hard workers especially Oscar, he should defo have a pay rise, chavi was also hard working. Please don't listen to the bad reviews as we all had a fantastic time! S.Jones North Wales

We travelled here in October with our 5 year old and 3 month old. We were pleasantly suprised upon our arrival, having read some bad reviews we were a little worried but shouldn't have been!

Rooms- Our room was in the middle block right on the end and we thought this was a great location, central but not noisey and close to the waterpark. We had requested a cot from the hotel via email and this was ready for us. The one bedroom apartment we had was fresh looking and very clean, the bedroom had two single beds and the sofa in the living room converts into a further single bed.Kitchen area has a hob, microwave, various crockery and a whistling kettle (we took a travel kettle to prepare baby milk!) and a table and chairs. Not much wardrobe space but we made do! We had to request plugs for the bath and sink in order to bath the children but once requested the super ninja maids bought them within minutes!. There was also a huge T.V in the living area, not sure it was all that necessary but it does have a good few channels- handy to catch up on the news.

Food
Food in the restaurant was very nice, good variety although I think I would get a bit repetitive after a week. I actually preferred the food at lunch time rather than at dinner. The grilled meats were lovley especially the pork. There was always a soup at Lunch time and dinner which I enjoyed. There is also fresh bread available as well as a drink selection- Estrella taps, wine, post mix drinks, juice, water, tea and not so nice coffee. A good tip is to see whats cooking in the snack bar! Each morning fried eggs are cooked to order (we didn't find this out until the last day!) there are pancakes in evening too. This area is also where theme night food is served, there was paella one night which I have to say wasn't the nicest i've ever had! There was also BBQ food one night and Pinchita's another night.

Staff
The staff are great! The same people who work in the restaurant at breakfast are serving drinks in the bar late at night, still smiling and full of fun! All of the staff are great with children and helpful, I seriously don't know how they do it.

Entertainment
At first I thought the entertainment was a bit naff- typical holiday caberet but I was wrong, it was great fun! The childrens mini disco was a highlight each night for our daughter, (we had to download all of the songs when we got home!) and the team work hard to ensure everyone has a good time. Like the hotel staff, they are always smiling and talk to you as though you are the only guests at the hotel.

Kids Club/First choice reps
Our daughter went to the kids club a few times (especiallly when the weather was bad) and loved it the kids reps are very good still full of energy even at the end of the season. We didnt have much interation with the first choice reps, other than at the "going home" meeting. One of the kids reps escorted us on our transfers which ran smoothly.

Pools/Waterpark
There are 3 pools, all of them different, the one nearest to our apartment was big, kept clean and had a pool bar. We loved the waterpark, great choice of slides as well as the lazy river, there is also a bar here which despite what some have said does have sandwiches available if you ask! Yes there are wasps but the hotel does it's best to keep them away but keeping areas clean and regulaly empiting bins.

Beach
One of the nicest unspoilt beaches I have been to. Worth the few minutes walk to get there! I'm not usually a beach lover but this one is great, lovley clear water and clean sand- take a snorkel to see lots of different little fish near the rocks!

Tips
You will probably want water for your room, get it from the supermarket just down from the hotel its about 2 euro for a gallon! There is also a good few restaurants to choose from too although most had closed for the season when we were there. If you have children it's also worth taking them to the childrens play park next to the restaurants. I think it's 5 Euro for 30 mins and is so much fun- adults aren't allowed on unfortunatley :( !!
We visited Mahon on the Saturday (market day) via bus which stops a few minutes walk away by the supermarket. It cost around 2 euro for a ticket and stops at the bus station in the centre of mahon- do check for the return bus times though before you go wandering around the town!
If you have the time, hire a car and see the rest of Menorca, it's only small and it's apparently impossible to get lost!

All in all we had a fab time and would reccomend this hotel to any family/older couple looking for a fun relaxing holiday!

Room Tip: All down to personal prefrence but if you want an early night stay away from the ampitheatre!

This huge complex packs in a triple helping of pools, plus an impressive waterpark. It’s only a short walk from Arenal’s centre and sandy beach, too.

Watery fun aside, there’s also loads of sports and activities going on. All rooms and the restaurant had a refresh for summer 2016, so you can expect a fresh look and feel during your stay. The buffet restaurant lines up spreads of international dishes fresh-made pancakes at breakfast. There’s a kid-friendly section, too, with stuff like nuggets and fish fingers. There's a poolside bar dishing up drinks and snacks throughout the day. ... more   less
