Not bad at all
by: Cathy

We ve been to this place like every other day, especially when raining, and im thankfull for it! my 3 years old didnt care much about the ice skating so i cant rate that, but i saw people enjoying it. But he loved to go jumping on the ropes and the spiderman slide. Contrary to what the other person wrote, it is marked at the entrance to the spiderman that the time limit is 5 mins, but my son was sliding 20 mins on average so really good value. Never had any problems with the staff either, they were nice to me and my son. He also liked the horses and other smaller slides. They have a divine ice cream especially turron and chocolate in spite of the inconvenience of having to pay for it at the entrance, which i didnt understand why, but its only 2 meters away so i didnt really mind. We didnt go there for shopping and our son liked it so we enjoyed it and hope to return next season.

Ice skating in Marbella
by: Paula

Don't expect too much... Went today (Sunday) with our two girls aged 4.5 and 3 years. The ice started melting, it was not busy at all (which is good), probably due to lack of advertising.

For 6 euros for 45 minutes you get the cheapest ice skaters ever, starting at size 30, which really hurt your feet. But it is good enough if you want your kids to just "try it out" for a while.

Unfortunately the installations are in a terrible state, the toilets were very dirty and smelly (and given the amount of people present that should def not be the case), half of the stalls were closed, the service was very poor if they were open.

We had a peace of cake for 2,50 Euros which you have to first pay at the entrance, only to find out that you paid for the cake you did not want.

Bouncy castles & trampolines are there, again, 2,50 Euros a go. It does not specify time restriction but our kids were pulled off after about 10 minutes, and it was not busy! The staff were not very friendly, it is not signposted or anything, so you have to walk around to find the entrance to it.

All in all, poor organisation and overpriced, but given that there are not many places like this and it is the closest, it is worth a go.
