    This is a great zoo with a lot of animals to see, food areas including proper restaurants and Picknick areas where you can eat your own food. It is good to come in August as there won't be as much people there but due to the heat, the animals won't be that active. The metro stops around 900 meters away from the zoo. Great experience

    The Dolphin show actually made me cry it was so beautiful! A total must see for anyone who is planning to go! The animals are extremely awesome and there are so many, it's gonna takę a few long hours to see everything, so its a full fun day. Also the restaurant!! I was super surprise by how fresh and large the meal portions are! U choose a drink, a dessert, a first plate and a second plate! Its so great!!!

    Enjoyed this zoo with our three year old. We had an umbrella stroller we brought. If you don't have one, they do offer cute car/strollers to rent. Baby elephants we're adorable and very active both in the water and running around. Spent an entire day here and wore out our kiddo.

    It was an amazing experience for my 3.5 year old. Animals were very well taken care of and the whole area was very clean. We have enjoyed a 3 hrs tour and loved exploring all the animals

    Very disappointing visit. Last time I went, probably 10 years ago, it was far better: more animals, better looked after, better and cheaper services. This time no cafes opened before 13h and most of the vending machines were out of order. The animals are still in the mostly concrete enclosures of the 1970s with very little apparently being done to bring the zoo up to current European standards. The aquarium was good.

    Most of the animals have rather wide areas and the place is pretty clean. Some of the areas don't really seem adatped to the animal needs, but overall seems nicely done. Food is kind of expensive, but good quality. They have several animal shows during the day and the kids did enjoy them.

    Great place. Be ready to walk and enjoy. By the way. You can bring your own food and drinks they don’t mind. Lots of fun for the kids Just let them roam around and chill.

    Great place to spend the full day together with the kids and the whole family or with your schoolmates and teachers. The Madrid Zoo gives an incredibly opportunity to see from very close animals like Elephants, monkeys, giraffes, rhinos, hippopotamus, lions, tigers but also Pandas, sharks, dolphins, Sea Turtles and SeaLions. You can’t really miss it!

    One of the best places I have visited. The animals are well looked after and the staff are so very helpful. They did as best they could to help me navigate wuthout my knowing Spanish. I was able to experience all the shows and visit all enclosures. The layout works well and compliments the animals. The food establishments are good too but a little pricey, even though that is expected.

    Nice place, the bad side is seeing so many people throwing peanuts and fruits at some of the animals with no security or control whatsoever. Very long queues in some kiosks with slow and unfriendly staff. The people factor really brings down the experience of the place. The reptile area has been closed for ages now and some facilities really need an upgrade. It's a shame because the place has great potential. Someone really should upgrade the staff training too.
