Palmitos Park, Gran Canaria Reviews
Lovely day out. The park is well laid out and the animals appear to be well cared for and happy. My highlight was the dolphin show ... it was amazing - so well done and entertaining. The grounds of the park are spectacular, well kept & beautifully presented. I also enjoyed the parrot show .. again very entertaining. Buying food and drink at Palmitos Park is a bit of an expense ....nothing is cheap in this type of environment, so I took plenty of water and a few snacks - enough to tide us over until we got back to our hotel for evening meal (we didn't have any little ones with us - thank goodness ) My best tip, if you have young children with you,take lots of drinks and snacks - they will love it -lots of stuff to engage them.
Excellent park with several daily shows. We saw the parrot and dolphin shows. While the park is certainly smaller than Sea World, the dolphins are no less impressive. The show also educates and emphasizes that some exercises may not be perfectly executed by young dolphins still under training. I like the fact that you do not seek perfection but rather show that these animals really like to play and perform. The park is located in a mountainous terrain and the road there is a bit "interesting" if you haven't driven on narrow mountain roads before. It isn't a long road and the speed limit is 40 km/h. So it is not nearly as nasty as some roads in the Alps or Andes. There are public bus services to the park in case you don't want to drive yourself. The food next to the Dolphinarium is excellent. Our young kids loved the pizza and lasagna, respectively and the steak with fries is fantastic. The waiter even asks you to try to the steak to see if you are happy with how it has been cooked. All this comes at a price which is a bit high but certainly well worth it - the park is huge and has a lot of animals, not to mention a lot of beautiful trees and plants which require watering. You can save a few Euros by purchasing tickets on the Internet. That also allows you to skip the queue. Curiously, tickets are based on children's "age and/or height". So a "Mini" child is 3-4 years old OR 90-110 cm tall, while a "Child" is 5-10 years old OR 110-140 cm. Older or taller children are adults. You can purchase additional dolphin privileges such as "close contact" (€60-90) and photos with the dolphins (€10-30). We did not do this - the show itself was fine for us. Do note that the park is built on the side of a mountain. Some of the paths are very steep. It is possible to avoid the steepest paths and still be able to see the main attractions but it will of course limit what you are able to see in the park. All in all, a bit costly but very much worth the money.
Poor customer service. Rude staff members. purchased tickets online but was told I couldn't use them on that day, my options were either purchase new ones or come back another day. They then questioned how old my son was as I'd bought a child's ticket. My son is 8 years old and tall. They wouldn't believe and said because he's 1.4m tall he is 11 years old and we have to pay more for him. Unbelievable.
Was pleasantly surprised, as were the kids. Great variety of animals, and several shows throughout the day, from birds of prey, parrots, exotic birds and a dolphin arena. I've never seem dolphins in captivity and was a bit apprehensive, but they seemed to push the "conservation" angle so took their word for it. Show was really good - although lacked shade, so take sunscreen. The kids (5 years old) loved the variety of animals and seeing the dolphin show, so were entertained from the moment we walked in to the moment we walked out. Also, if you go here you can get discount tickets for the Aqualand water park just down the road, which is also pretty good fun, even for younger kids.
Very nice park. Logical route and a various amount of animals. The animals also seem to be taken well care of. The shows are a must see, especially the dolphin show. The food, however, is terrible and overpriced as well. Make sure you bring your own food (and drinks).
