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.
All rooms and the restaurant are having a refresh for summer 2016, so you can expect a fresh look and feel during your stay.

The waterpark is right next to the Marina Parc Hotel. There's a great range of speedy slides, a bowl and even a lazy river. Kids get a section all of their own with slides and fountains. Even better, your All Inclusive can be used here, too. And just so you know, both the dinghy slides here have a height restriction of 140cm.
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.

I can see why families go there - good fun for the kids & feels very safe because of the quiet location. The waterpark was a giggle for us - why should kids have all the fun! We had a laugh in there although does need a bit of updating. Food was surprisingly good especially breakfast. Room was ok nothing special, good tv channels, hotel could do with a bit of TLC. Looked like they had some self contained apartments/villas with private pools which looked good if you are a bigger size family. Beautiful beach about 10-15 min walk - lovely sandy beach & clear blue water. Although we wanted a relaxing week being a couple the hotel entertainment wasn't our cup of tea so it would've been nice if we could've found somewhere with a bit of evening entertainment - the couple of bars down the road didn't have much going on but the staff were very friendly & welcoming - unlike our trip to Farnells one evening for a couple of drinks and change of scenery where we thought there would be a bit more to do. Wrong! - just restaurants so you would be ok if you wanted to eat there but most wouldn't serve us a drink without eating - there didn't seem to be any atmosphere there in the evening - not even any background music in the restaurants - unless we picked the wrong evening to go perhaps! Overall we enjoyed our holiday but purely because of its very quiet location we probably wouldn't go back to this hotel - caters more for families but wouldn't want to put couples off if they do want a quiet holiday as I would say it was reasonably priced & good value for the moneyMore
Marina Parc, Splashworld, Minorca ~ Perfect break
Just returned from a week at Marina Parc, Splashworld, Minorca After reading reviews beforehand was a little wary, but I do try and read between the lines as everyone has different views and expectations of a resort. We stayed in D3 area, we had a ground floor apartment which was comfortable and clean. Usual furniture inside the apartment with fridge and safe (charge for safe and deposit as normal), Seating area outside. We were across the road from the water park and the 'commercial zone'. The commercial zone consisted of a couple of bars, a few shops, a supermarket and hire car shops. La Pirata bar did good cocktails. There is also some little dodgem cars, bouncy castles and entertainment rides for children. The bus stop is also situated here to catch the bus to Mahon (Mao). Bus to Mahon took about 30 minutes, on market day the bus will be rammed so be aware, the day we went they put on another bus directly behind the full one so was lucky and managed to get there seated. 2euro 60 one way. Cheap at half the price, direct into bus station, the same on return. Easy to use this bus service for people with pushchairs too. The water park has slides, pools, wave machine, lazy river etc. Toilets with baby changing area and showers. There is also a little shop should you need pool items. The park opened at 10.30am whilst we were there and the bar opened about 11.00 am and if you were all inclusive all food and drink was included think it closed 5/5.30pm. We spent quite a few mornings here and always got a sunbed but there were not masses of them so can imagine this gets busy in the summer. There are 3 pools in Marina Parc and each day there are games/quizzes etc going on around them, they are rotated around the pools. D3 area and pool was named the sports bar i think games were played here when possible. Outside reception you can catch the little noddy train, think it was 6 euro return or 4 euro one way. Its a nice way to spend a little time and check out the surrounding area. We chose one way, got off at the beach and walked back, not a long walk back but enjoyable on a nice night. Reception area has indoor and outdoor seating area, we chose to sit here in an evening which is slightly quieter area if thats what you want. You can also sit across the way where the family evening entertainment is held. Restaurant is large with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. We found the food to be good with plenty of choice for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The snack bar opened at 11am till 9pm doing burgers/hotdogs/toasted sandwiches and chips etc. Both areas are good and we found there to be plenty of choice. The check in is a slow process unfortunately, the reception is not huge and there are only a few staff on at check in so do be patient and you will be sorted. We found all staff we came into contact with to be very friendly, helpful and polite. Overall we have a fab relaxing holiday and enjoyed every minute.More
Nice enough complex but boring
Stayed for a week and was so ready to leave. Nice enough room and complex but waterpark needs work, food ok for a few days then repetitive and the entertainment was nothing short of terrible. If it wasn't for the beautiful beach we would have been ready to come home after two days. No activities during the day as advertised. Same old entertainment night after night and finished at 10pm?? Place is full of kids machines but never had change for them to give u. Would go back to Menorca but certainly wouldn't entertain going back to marina parc. Never a four star hotel in a million years. Hotel manager had better things to worry about than dealing with complaints we was told by the reps. When the reps complain you know something is wrong. Shame because it has everything to be a lively resort.More
lee bloomfield ,
This was an average all inclusive holiday. Room was clean and basic but the sink in the bathroom did not have any plug, reported this and we did get a plug for the sink within a few hours. Similarly the shower was very loose coming away from the wall on arrival and by day 4 as soon as you turned on the shower it sprayed everywhere flooding the bathroom. We reported it and again it was repaired the same day. Sadly they appeared to be short staffed as we did not have our room cleaned until the 5th day which we did not mind too much as we do not get it dirty. But what we did need is clean towels as they were used to mop up the flooded bathroom. We reported this to reception on 2 separate days but did not get any new ones. Eventually we had clean towels on day 5. The young lad was apologetic and explained that he was extremely busy and there were only 3 of them to do the whole block (D1) including the rooms where guests had gone home. Likewise the pool area did not have the bins emptied every day. It is a shame that guests do not use bins provided leaving their rubbish under their sun beds as this would blow all over the place not giving a good impression for new arrivals. Food was basic but what you would expect from all inclusive. You would not go hungry. Water park was ok but nothing special for adults or late teenagers. The hotel appeared to be very quite and very little in the way of entertainment. Never seen so many people playing cards in an evening. Overall enjoyed the holiday but would not go back.More
After a bad start being given the worst hotel room ever.We booked an apt with bedroom bathroom and sitting room.what we got was small bedroom and bathroom.We complained were told sorry you have been given wrong room we will move you tomorrow.New room was good a bit dated but clean and plenty of room. Overall the Hotel was good staff very helpfull and allways pleasant The food was good plenty of healthy options,the hotel was more like a holiday center rooms were like little bungalows and some two story buildings gave it a different feel. The gardens and grounds were very well kept.Some good entertainment in the outdoor venue and lots of activities during the day along with three pools made this an ideal family holiday.More
