Water park is great and if you buy your ticket at the hotel you can go as many times as you want. Do go early though as it gets very busy! <br /> <br /> Lots of places to eat and drink and lots of shops, not expensive either. <br /> <br /> The beach is great, you can hire sunbeds for the day for less than €10. Lots of water sports too.<br /> <br /> Palma is a bus ride away which is nice town to visit too.

Resort was pleasant, we found a few cafe bars and restaurants where they had lovely food and nice people, the beach was lovely and safe but overcrowded with young people being loud, we went to the beach to sleep as we didn't in the hotel and only managed to get peace until about 2pm when everyone decided to come out and party again. I am all for letting your hair down but this is not the place for couples looking for a relaxing time or families. Maybe out of season it would be more peaceful.

El Arenal is not a resort for children. It is clearly a 'Magaluf' for German youngsters. The Palma Aquarium is recommended. The land train on the seafront is good fun.

Hotel very short walk down the hill about 250 meters to beach front, beach and walk lovely, great view of sunset. Disappointed in the shops and restaurants on front; shops selling same old clutter and tightly squeezed together, a bit stuck back in time. Lots of discarded alcohol bottles and cans littering the promenade, all times of the day and night. Resort for young revellers or all day partiers, who love to drink - a lot! Area not for our age group 50+, maybe 30 years ago.

10 minutes away from airport around €20. Clean beaches all the way through. 15 minutes walk to Aquapark, which was quiet for end of May. Weather there was brilliant (always check a week before as not quite true what net is showing). Everything in one package. Only problem that not many English people there, if you are ok with it. €1 can of lager, 2-3€ for bottle of red wine or sangria. €4 for a kebab or pizza. Around £7 for large plate of paella or €10 day menu with a drink in. Went there last year as well. Will consider to go back again.

Beach not far away along with good restaurants and bars, lots of hen and stag parties in the resort. Busses are frequent into Palma, if you like fast food it was quite cheap but good food was either mid to high price. Spirits and mixers expensive, cocktails around 5.5 to 7.5 euros.

The beach

The Arenal beach is wide with fine white sand which gently slopes into the sea. It's just 200-metres in length though it's actually a continuation from the neighbouring resort of Playa de Palma where the beach stretches for over 4 km. This whole length of beach has 15 Balnearios, which are small beach huts featuring a kiosk, toilets and showers.

Facilities are good with areas to hire sun-loungers and parasols, and there's a wide range of watersports at hand with pedalos, paragliding and banana-boat rides. The promenade behind the beach is traffic free and lined with a good selection of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants.

Things to do

Aqualand water park situated on the outskirts of El Arenal offers a variety of water attractions with adrenaline chutes, children's play-areas and a relaxing lazy river, ensuring a fun-day out for all ages.

The resort also features a Jurassic Park themed crazy golf course and with 54-holes to try out it's definitely worth visiting more than once.

The city of Palma is a must-see with winding streets, historical sites, museums, pavement cafes and chic boutique shops Palma has plenty of places to explore and relax. Some of its major attractions include the gothic La Seu Cathedral, the Palace de L'Almudaina and the Castell de Bellver.

Out and about

A long promenade links the neighbouring resorts of Playa de Palma and Ca'n Pastilla, a pleasant walk with palm trees providing a respite from the sun, alternatively a tourist mini-train runs between these resorts during the summer months.

For exploring beyond the resort, transport links from Arenal to Palma are good, there are regular buses and plenty of taxis available.

Nearby attractions

The Palma Aquarium is found just outside Palma between Ca'n Pastilla and Playa de Palma, combining education and fun it's suitable for all ages and is a great place to learn all about marine life and more. There are 25 aquariums home to a wide variety of Mediterranean species, a further 24 with tropical fish, and the deepest shark tank in Europe. Outside there's a play-area for children, Mediterranean and jungle gardens.

The Marineland which is located in the resort of Portal Nous around 16 km away is a popular attraction for families with young children, the park features an aquarium with rays and sharks, and the shows include performing sea lions, parrots and dolphins.

For an enjoyable day out take the train from Palma to picturesque Soller and enjoy the scenic journey while seated in vintage carriages, a pleasurable and popular tourist attraction. Once in Soller you can extend your trip onto Port de Soller, where a vintage tram connects with the arrival of the train.
