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.

My wife and I spent 10 nights at this hotel from 14th Oct. to 24 Oct. We were lucky to have chosen an apartment close to a nice pool. As for everything else, if you don't have children , do not go there. We thought it would be nice and quiet late October, wrong, children everywhere. This hotel only caters for children. The food was good only it was never kept hot unless you got your food as it came out, it was always warm. The drinks are an insult, we have travelled the world on all inclusive but have never been given small plastic water cups to drink out of, I understand the need for plastic around the pool but not in the lounge bar and restaurant. I could not give this hotel anything above 2 star.More

Marina Parc - Menorca
Stayed at Marina Parc in August 2015, really nice apartments, breakfasts same every day but pretty good, lunch same. Main evening meals were different everyday ( themed ) and pretty good. Drinks in plastic cups which I can understand for round pool areas. Water parc was really good both kids ( 17 and 12 ) really enjoyed it and food available. Walk to beach not too far and some nice restaurants and bars within walking distance. Only 1 complaint is towels reservingMore

Save your self from a nightmare
Well upon arriving at 11:30 am we was told our room was not ready and was told to put our bag in a safe room with a code nearly 6 an half hours later after asking a few times we got into our dam smelling room the reception staff don't seem interested one bit the resort is so outdated felt like going back to the early 90 s they need to spend some serious money doing it up also after a 3 days I had to go and ask for our room to be cleaned and asked for blanket ma for my children as they where cold at night they took 2 days and me asking almost 10 times I had to go see a rep to sort it for me who was very helpful I think his name was Martin nice bloke he was and a valued member of there team.The food well I don't know where to start it was that bad most nights I had to eat out I'm a qualified chef and I would not feed some of that food to my dog but there was 2 nights where the food was ok but abit repetitive and if your kids like chicken nuggets everyday you've cracked it I expected abit more than what was on offer one good thing the restaurant front of house staff work very hard indeed some of the hardest workers I have seen I would have anyone of them come to work for me back home I was impressed.onto the water park it's not big at all around 6 slides very basic and very outdated again from the early 90 s I would of thought also the floors not jet washed and very dirty also the barman was more interested in his phone then serving customers who have paid a lot to come here I was told that the resort was a nice family place with lots to do well that's a total lie there is nothing at all and the hotel entertainment was ok but nothing to shout about the kids disco lasted around 20 mins then done.also there was a few fights where police where called in and a man was arrested not good for a FAMILY resort at all magaluff is the next island m8 I could go on all day about how bad this place is so all I recommend is that u please do not book here and waist your money and have a holiday from hell until they spend a lot of cash doing it up and sack there chefs butlins would of been a better choice.More

The good was great and the bad was awful
We had a 3 bed apartment which was roomy and suited our needs perfectly. Clean and tidy with regular towel and bedding changes. However we could have lived without the black mould in the wardrobe and the almost rotten with damp bathroom window. The beds were very uncomfortable and need replacing, which they may do now they are closed for the winter. The shower ran at normal temp, then boiling, then freezing cold on a seemingly never ending loop. We were also over the restaurant, so we lived with the smell of chips constantly and it was quite noisy. Meals were varied and very tasty, especially the freshly made breakfast pancakes and cooked to order eggs. However the restaurant was noisy and overfull. Wouldn't fancy being there peak season. Coffee was out of a machine and bloody awful, but they did have sachets and teabags you could make your own with hot water. Biggest let down in that area was the UHT milk. Had to get mine from the supermarket down the road, so good job we had the kitchenet. The soft drinks machine were temperamental, but the staff quick to put issues right. Speaking of the staff, very friendly, very helpful, Awesome. The absolute worst thing about this holiday was the degrading feeling you get being forced to drink out of tiny plastic cups bearly strong enough to hold their own weight never mind the weight of a drink. Come on Thomson..I understand the need to be safe in the pool areas but treat your clientele to some posh plastic would you. Overall we had a good holiday, but we won't be returning. There were a couple of lovely families we met and chatted to, but there were more that took too great an advantage of the free bar. One family we met summed it up by saying that he thought they needed to start paying more for their holidays....More
