“Surprisingly good, but....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2014 via mobile

This place was a real surprise considering the cost! We took our children including our 3 year old daughter who just loved it. There is plenty of shade and feeding the monkeys, giant tortoise and Guinea pigs were the highlight. It only takes an hour or so to get around and is a great experience, except for the chimpanzees. They just seem too big and not happy enough in their enclosure. Left us with a bit of a sad feeling over what was an otherwise great time. Also beware the toilet, really dark, certainly needs an upgrade.

“The best 10 euros you will spend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

Everyone at the hotel were recommending a visit here and we were not disappointed. It cost 5 euros in a taxi to get there from Los Cristianos and 10 euros entry fee for adults and 5 euros for kids and was well worth it.
You can get up close to the animals and feed them, 3 euros for a pack of fruit and veg and they take the food gently from you or throw away what they dont want!
Well worth a visit.

“Great Day Out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

This little known off the beaten-track park was brilliant. My wife and I are in our mid 50's but we we're like big kids when we arrived being able to have 'hands-on' with the monkeys and parrots. A trip well worth doing.
