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.

Last minute deal
We booked this holiday at the last minute. Very reasonable for an all inclusive. The staff were very nice. The hotel and rooms very clean. Transfers on time. It is very much catered for Children which is great if you have a young family. Food was aplenty although they other half is very fussy and not always a great deal for him to eat. I would recommend this hotel if you have children, but as a couple there is not a lot to do. Also as it was the end of the season the surrounding area was virtually shut down. The beach is a definite must though - fabulous.More

I stayed for a week in October at the Marina Parc hotel with my partner and 20 month old baby. I cannot fault the place, it is a lovely hotel, the staff were very friendly, the entertainment was very good, and my little boy loved the junior disco every night. Although he was too young to attend the kids club properly, the entertainment staff always made a big fuss of him. The food at the hotel was good, there was always a variety, including the ever-present chips and chicken nuggets, but i always found something i liked. The resort itself is lovely, I had a one bedroom bungalow opening on to the swimming pool, which was ideal, and having the little kitchenette, which incliuded a fridge, was very helpful when it came to storing milk for the baby. The waterpark was small but well-kept and the pool areas were always immaculate. The beach is about 15-20 minute walk away, and although there are only a couple of small shops and a supermarket locally, there was a bus service that went into the main town if you wanted to use it. I have to say, i felt a little isolated in that there wasn't more around the resort itself - for example, there wasn't anywhere to go to if you fancied an after dinner stroll. Having said that, I enjoyed the fact that it was so quiet there, there was almost no traffic around the hotel, which made it safe for the children. I would recommend the hotel for families, and i would go back there.More

We were in Menorca early October staying at the Tramontana Park, but unfortunately part way through our holiday the hotel was closing so we were booked into the Marina Parc. We arrived about 11am and left the luggage in the car until we were checked in. At reception they didn't have a booking for us, but confirmed that it didn't mean they hadn't as some bookings are held on a different computer but they didn't have access to them???? and could we come back in an hour. We asked while we were waiting could we have a look around and we were told we could and we could use the amenities. We went to their water park which is just across the road, my wife settled down on a sunlounger and my son and myself grabbed an inflatable and started riding the tubes. After our 3rd go, I noticed this man in a red t-shirt storming his way over and I new instantly he was coming to me. He came over to me very aggressively and put his face into mine and started ranting. I pushed him away from my face and I speak a bit of Spanish so I knew he was asking where my band was. I explained that we were waiting to check but we had been told it was OK for us to be there. All the time he was shouting over me while I was trying to explain and the other guests were looking at this point. I told him to shout of the lad that was at the top of the ride, he was Spanish and he could speak good English, so the lad came down and I explained everything to him who in turn explained to this Moron who radioed through to reception to clarify everything. Then he said something to the lad and started walking off. The lad explained that it was Ok for us to be there and reception should have given me either a reciept or wrist band. The guy never even apologised, so I went after him for an apology, but he just ignored me and shut himself in a little office, I can only say it was probably the best thing he could have done because I would have ended up thumping him and I'm not an aggressive person. I went to reception and asked the to change my hotel and explained that there is no way I could stay there as everytime I saw him it would have made my blood boil, they moved us down the road to Aqua Marina and we had a great time. The hotel and amenities did look good and the reception staff tried to be as helpful as they could, it was just the Moron that spoilt it for us and they need to fire him ASAP.More
We booked this holiday for our first years aniversary, we had been told it was quiet and would had booked to stay in an apartment just so we could do our own thing! How wrong this could be! We turned up and our room wasn't ready so we got told to come back at 12 after arriving at 10.30 we were tired from travelling as had been up most of the night travelling to the airport , so me and my husband went back at just after 12 to be told room stil wasn't ready and told it was going to be a little while longer, 2 and a half hours later we finally got out room! And it wasn't the room we had booked! They put us into a small twin bed room round the back of the apartments with a hedge for a view! We weren't happy! The room wasn't big enough to move in and had a adjoining door to the rooms behind us so you could here every word and movement the people in that room made! We decided to go and get a drink and what a disappointment ! If you enjoy drinking out of a child's size plastic party cup for every drink you have fizzy or alcoholic ! The bar also closes at 11 but bar is so small can't even see how they can call it one and you can only have two drinks at a time and in a small party plastic cup it doesn't last long!! Food was rubbish ok If you like cold food , mainly served chicken legs, rice and chicken nuggets !! The only nice thing I can really say about the place is that it is clean and the pool was nice , drinks around the pool are served from 11 am onwards but pool side bar closes when it's snack time so of you want a drink then you have to trapes from the pool across the road into the next complex to get a drink! Again small plastic cups which I can understand being by pool area but not acceptable in bar at night !! Soft drinks by pool are served out of 2 litre bottles where the caps had been left off so not very fizzy at all!! We also went for. Walk to the beach ! Must of been at least 20 to 30 minute walk and is not as close as they say in brochure ! Me and my husband complained to reps after day 2 and we're lucky enough to of been able move to insotel in punta prima which was absolutely amazing to this place and made our holiday !! Other wise we would of been extremely disappointed when we got home and probably would of needed another holiday !! When we left we handed back our keys etc staff didn't even ask why we're leaving or sorry you didn't enjoy stay baring in mind we had booked for 12 days!! Oh well all I can describe this place as being is like the Spanish version of butlins!! I wouldn't go back again if someone paid me!!!! More
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
