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.

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.

Good solid honest review
Firstly, if you have never been to Menorca, it's a beautiful island with fantastic scenery and beaches. The people are friendly and almost every area is accessible within 30/45 mins as it's not a big island. The flight times are comfortable at 2hrs 10mins and a 30 mins transfer is good. First impressions of hotel on arrival were a bit if a let down. The reception area is small and appears dated and has a small bar area. The furniture is also dated and not the most comfortable. You are greeted by the entertainment teams ( both first choice & hotel ) who I must add work tirelessly day and night to make the holiday enjoyable. The hotel staff at reception including the manager are very welcoming and helpful. The room we stayed in (d block) was at the quieter end of the complex which had sea views. The room was basic but clean and tidy and spacious. My only gripe would be the beds we're not the comfiest but no different than what I've encountered at other hotels. Overall very satisfied. There are 3 large pools on site at each of the residential areas plus a large waterpark, all of which are in a few minutes walk of each other. Each pool is well maintained and well stocked with sun loungers etc and has a bar/snack facility at each. Very good. The beach is a maximum 10min walk at normal speed and I must point out is beautiful. It is a bay and the water is crystal clear ideal for snorkelling, bathing etc. the sun loungers are/were â¬5 each per day. Excellent. Food & Drink unfortunately this in my opinion is what really lets this hotel down. The restaurant is not asfetically the most appealing. Bamboo style seating is most uncomfortable and if it's busy then a plastic patio set awaits you in the outer facility. This area is no more than 2* standard and needs a total uplift. The food is of low quality and I was very dissapointed with this being an avid food fan. Some if the meat being served was just awful.The drinks were as expected at AI hotel so all good except slush drinks would be an added bonus at the waterpark. My star ratings Hotel staff - 5* Hotel entertainment team - 5* First choice team - 4* Room - 3*+ Food - 2* Location - 3* + In summary - this hotel is great for families with young children with the on site waterpark and fantastic beach close by. Take advantage of the excursions to experience the rest if the island as everywhere is accessible within 30/40 mins. Also note that this hotel is purely geared toward the children so do not expect any adult entertainment. The only real reason I would not return to this hotel would be due to the poor quality of the food. Oh and the wifi is not great.More

family holiday hotel ideal for younger children.
Just returned from Marina parc 29/10/14, read the reviews prior to going and was a little concerned, but no need to be. To be honest our room 300 was a little tired and could have benefited from a little tlc, fresh paint etc but to be fair it was the last week of the season. Maids came around every other day changed towels and sheets. food was a little repetitive and not always to our taste but always fresh and plenty of choice the kids had no complaints. Ideally suited to younger children or adults who just want to relax as there is no adult entertainment and very little to do within walking distance of the hotel, that said the beach is great (as long as the jelly fish are not in the bay) and the water parc kept the kids entertained as did the pools around the hotel complex. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Would we go again? YES we would, were booking up again next year. Take the trip to Mahon worth the time but would recommend catching the bus from outside the commercial area costs 2.60 euros per person each way. p.s . don't expect supper fast Wi-Fi it's free but slow and mainly available around the reception and pool areas. PPS if you are a smoker there are very few places to buy cigarettes so go prepared, tobacco shop is a twenty minute walk but it is competitively priced.More

Sons first holiday abroad
First time taking my son abroad age 6. What a fantastic time we had.. After we had booked I looked on here (and wished I didn't) was thinking the worst!! BUT been away last 2 years all inclusive... but never with my son so a family holiday not a couples one! This was perfect hotel food staff pools great for kids and people who don't mind staying in the massive complex. There is a beach near (10 mins walk) 2 gift shops and a supermarket but that's it! So if u are looking for nights out or pubs this isn't the one! Staff worked so hard to make it special and reps were alway there to help! Reception was open 24/7 so yes sometimes they did seem a bit stressed but don't we all.. Just make sure you book A APARTMENT NOT A TWIN ROOM, if you want a kitchen sink dinning table cups and big fridge!as you will get 2 single beds and a pull out bed and a tiny fridge in the wardrobe! Not good if more than 2 people (no where to move or get ready) ! Overall great place but will look at going to the splash work in Tenerife next year ;)))) Diane 29 Chris 26 Liam 6 milton keynesMore
Love this hotel- would stay again!
We have just returned home from Marina Park and the whole family loved every minute. We were greeted on arrival and shown to our room which had everything we needed as we didn't spend much time there. I travelled with my partner and 2 girls aged 5 and 7. The splash world was great and we went there every day as the girls loved Stacey the splash host and the slides. All the lifeguards were lovely and when my little girl cut her foot on a rock the main lifeguard rushed to her aid and made a big fuss of her. But what made this place fabulous were the animation team, my girls fell in love with Jose and Ianhoa and Reuben, Judith and Andrea. Every night we looked forward to the entertainment and I thought they did a fantastic job. My advice to the manager would be get them all back next year and we would definitely go again! The food was also good and yes the drinks were strong but I just asked for not so much and the bartender was happy to oblige. We were waved off when we left by entertainers and hotel staff and I would definitely book again! More
Lovely holiday wonderful staff
We returned home yesterday from marina parc, spent a week there with my husband and daughter aged 14. Loved the hotel and the service from the first choice staff and hotel staff could not be faulted. We were greeted outside the hotel with a drink , only a small thing but a really nice thing to do. Our room was ready , though we wre expecting to wait until 2pm, room was spacious and had kitchen area an seperate bedroom. Everywhere was clean and well maintained. Pools lovely , plenty of sun beds. The water slide park was my favourite place to sunbathe , with lots of activities going on organised by the first choice staff and animation team. Food was varied and plentiful , always hot and there were microwaves if you wanted to heat it up. The staff in the restaurant and snack bar were helpful and friendly. Variety of drinks on offer . We had a lovely time here , and would highly recommend this hotel.although we didn't have small children with us the first choice staff were amazing with the small children and there always seemed to be activities going on even for under threes. The restaurant had a Chinese themed night and a Spanish one which was a nice change. Thursday night was fiesta party night with bouncy castles and activities for the children. Can't fault this hotel at all and it's staff, spent a lovely week there. Close to bus stop. Only ten minutes from the beach.More
