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.
The waterpark is this place’s crowning glory, with pools, ring rides and slides to keep speed demons grinning like Cheshire cats. Watery fun aside, there’s also loads of sports and activities going on.
The hotel’s set in 12 acres of greenery, and is really close to Arenal Beach – you can walk it in less than 10 minutes. The town centre’s really close, too.

First Choice Kids' Club
First Choice Kids’ Club caters for 3 to 11 year olds – so brothers and sisters can join in the fun together. And most of it’s completely free. It runs 5 days a week and – outside of peak season – there are parent and toddler sessions for under 3s, too. For your peace of mind, all First Choice Kids’ Club staff have advance DBS checks and hold NVQ Level 2 childcare qualifications. They’re First Aid trained, and there’ll be at least 2 of them on duty at all times. Plus there’s a strict sign-in and out system.
3 outdoor pools
There are 3 large pools in the hotel, one at each block of apartments. Each pool has a poolside bar which is open from 11am to 5pm.

We had a 1bed apartment with balcony overlooking d3 pool, which we liked the best of 3 pool areas. Spacious clean comfortable accommodation with sea view in distance. Lots of towels delivered every couple of days but sheets only changed on 2 of the beds during our 1 week stay.Had fridge and sink,2 cooking rings with small amount equipment ,tried to find out about what was included in the room before travel without success.Very well laid out facilities for pools/cafes/water park. We found the hotel staff to be exceptionally friendly at all times,impressive as it was v busy. Didn't take part in the organised entertainment, was with teenage boys...used tennis court most days for tennis and football-it is-free to prereserve an hour. Had excellent sea kayak trip with snorkelling, at nearby Fornells,rep booked it for us.Would have been good to have bottles of cold drinking water not just small cups!More

Do not bother
Firstly I have never written a review & I'm not one to moan but this is the worst holiday i have ever been on. I am currently here in the middle of a 2 week family holiday & we are all bored already. The food & apartment are fine but the entertainment is shocking if your kids are over 5 years old. None of the activities advertised are available (archery, football ect). Everything revolves around the pool. Which is ok for a while but does get boring. The bars are very poorly stocked & the drinks are served in tiny plastic cups with a massive piece of ice. The apartment is clean but we did have the cleaner turn up last night at 18:45 while I was in the shower & my partner and kids were getting ready for our evening meal! I hope people find this review helpful.More
We spent 10 days at marina parc hotel. When we arrived we had to wait 4 hours to check in because our room wasn't ready. The food was very poor quality and there wasn't much to choose from, to the point we ate out which we should t of needed to do. Even though all inclusive we were restricted to drinks which were served in tiny plastic cups with a large ice cube, when we asked the bar staff to top drinks up we were told they weren't allowed as managers were watching and they would get into trouble. The holiday certainly wasn't worth the money we paid and the hotel didn't offer all inclusive drinks that we paid for. We even had to go and buy bottles of drinks to make sure we were hydrated with the heat. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Management and hotel staff blamed language barriers for their lack of help. I am very disappointed in the money we've wasted More
Great family holiday for all 11 of us
Stayed here for 1 week AI. Our age group was from 6 years old thru to 63 years old. We had 3 adjacent apartments, next to D2 pool with bar. Sun is on this pool all day, and it is like a warm bath, very clean, very big. Our apartments were each 1 bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette, lounge (with 2 single pull out beds) aircon throughout, patio with table and chairs. We were approx. 500 metres from the hotel splashworld where the rides are exhilarating. Bar/snack bar on site. The snacks were cooked to order, the restaurant food was excellent and always something for everyone, and hot. A local Spar supermarket is approx. 700 metres away, and also 4 bar/restaurants if required are in the square at the Spar. Also gift shops and kids pay for play area. Another 700 metres is the beach, a beautiful cove with bar/restaurant overlooking the sea, with a spectacular sunset. The sea is blue clear, warm, and the beach is all sand.More
Holiday was enjoyed by all
I returned home from a two week holiday in Menorca (15th June to end of June) I had gate crashed my friends family holiday and it only cost me Â£800 for two weeks all inclusive (it was a no brainer!) there were 6 of us in a two bedroom apartment (3 adults and 3 kids) we were there with another family (2 adults and 2 kids) Everything on this holiday was ok - there was nothing I felt that was FANTASTIC! but I really don't have anything to moan about. Food - had a really good selection at breakfast lunch and dinners - there was a snack bar that did hotdogs and burgers and the bar in the water park also did burgers and hotdogs - all the bars also did ice creams that were in pots (like a yogurt pot) that kids could go up and ask for. They also had a kids section in the main buffet hall. Rooms - Our room was ok - not very well equipped and a bit basic, but big enough for all of us, we had two bathrooms which was handy, had a TV in the lounge which was good for the kids with plenty of English channels on. The entertainment - the First Choice reps were amazing! all the kids loved them and they really busted their balls! they were working really long hours as a favour to the hotel. - there was a bit of a 'to do' when we were there and the front man of the entertainment team told the children to shut up one night..... as you can imagine all the parents were booing him off the stage and the First Choice reps saved the day. The guy in question was massively above his station and really thought he was on Broadway! but the rest of his team again were lovely and the children really liked them all. Pools/Water Park - this was all very clean, as Menorca is a very green country there were bits of tree in the pools but this cannot be helped really. In our second week they had placed out all the poolside umbrellas and put up extra shading and there were plenty of sunbeds. We were in block D3 and our kids section of the pool was brilliant for the little children as it was like walking into the sea and not a jump in and only went up to 30cms. Even the deepest part of the deep pool was 150cms or something like that - I could touch the bottom on tippy toes Surroundings - there is a local shopping centre with a few toot shops, bars and restaurants, a supermarket and a local play centre for the kids (bouncy castles, mini golf, go kart type things) these were about a 5 mins walk from the hotel. You could catch the local bus and go in to Mahon, I didn't actually do this, but a few of our party did and they had a good day. Beach - the men of the holiday walked to the beach a few days with a couple of the kids.... probably for a cheeky beer! but we walked down to the beach one night after dinner, it was a pleasant walk and they have a promenade from one side right the way round to the other side which made it really easy to push a buggie - and we stopped at a bar on the other side for some drinks, the kids played on the sand and they also had a whole array of amusements at this bar which kept the kids entertained but they also kept appearing every two seconds saying "can we have a Euro" - bless them. Then a few of us got cabs back and a few of us walked back with the babies in the buggies. Really good evening. Soooooo all in all I had a brilliant holiday, but going all inclusive in Spain is never something I would usually do as a single lady but for families it was brilliant as the kids could help themselves when they pleased. I would recommend Marian Parc to friends and family, but just go with an open mind.More
