  • I think it's more a reptilarium than an aquarium. The visit is super nice! We see caimans, iguanas, snakes, the aligators and fish... After fish of rivers are less exciting than saltwater fish. But it's really interesting to see all these different species!

  • We went there with our one year old daughter and despite her young age she marvel at all those fish including swordfish and CARP. It is therefore an ideal place for a family especially outside the holiday period visit because the tour is so peaceful and we can enjoy and enrich the entertainment on offer. We can even feed the carp! Good alternative to the biggest and best-known aquariums, we can spend all day because other attractions are offered nearby.

  • Excellent tour. A lot of changes for 10 years... very large complex with the prehistoric labyrinth.

  • Good day out with lots to see and lots of eateries. Animation and interactive displays great too but could do with a good tidy up generally!
  • Nice afternoon out but the labyrinth next door was too scary for my children.
  • Pretty poor value for money. We visited the aquarium on a pretty quiet August day. It cost €48 for 2 adults, 2 children and an infant which doesn't sound too bad, except we really took our time walking round (we read every information board) and we had done the lot in an hour. A lot of the fish exhibits looked pretty tired and not as clean as they should be. The alligator and reptile part however was ok, and looked a lot newer, but most of the alligators were pretty small. The place is geared up to try and make you do all the four activities on site (mini golf, a go-ape type thing and a prehistoric labyrinth), but this would have cost over €150 and looking at the size of the place, it would have still only filled half a day. I would say definitely one to avoid.
  • The queue is almost as long as the time spent in the aquarium. Very overpriced and very busy. Don't really understand the good reviews-maybe people who haven't been to a an aquarium before. It's mildly interesting-pretty small. Would be ok for a first visit but the photos in brochures make it look really big. It isn't. Not sure how this claims to be the largest in Europe?. Ok for little kids.
  • Excellent day out for all the family good facilities.
