We really enjoyed the park overall. we were there more for the swim with the dolphins but the park had so many other things to do while you waited for your time. Some of the staff was a little pushy and we felt like we were not going to have a minute to ourselves to enjoy it alone. We did... More

The tickets where expensive but where one of the cheaper trips so I took them. The bus does frequently leave the hotels but as previous reviewers has stated after a maximum of 2 hours your day is over but are trapped due to the lack of buses for returning to your resort. The show pool for the dolphins was small... More

We were a little worried as we booked this trip before reading the reviews, however we had a fantastic time. We chose to swim with the dolphins and within 10 minutes of arriving we were in the pool. The dolphins looked for and healthy and not like some previous reviews describe. The swimming was a fabulous experience that I would... More

Snorkeling, shows, and dancing on the catamaran made for a great day in the sun. I would do it all again.

Hi, I went to the park 5/14/2014 at around 8:30am for my swim with the dolphins and show. As soon as I got there, it was depressing. The pool for the dolphins is about half the size of a regular pool. It was tiny for everyone trying to swim with the dolphins. I kept bumping into the other people swimming... More

I had read the reviews prior to coming here, so I knew a little what to expect. Our travel agent booked this excursion for us ... so I felt obligated to go. So after a few days at the resort we decided to go anyway. It was good to get away from the resort, but note that the bus takes... More

I sincerely hope that I read the reviews on this page before signing up for the excursion to go to Manati Park. Basically I concurred what other reviewers mentioned in this page. Before you even entered the main gate, there was a security that told everyone that water and food are not allowed in the park so we had to... More

The package was sold to us for 2 people at the Riu Bambu. $ 350.00 US. No explanation that photographs would have to paid for in addition to the $350.00. On arrival, we were asked to pose for entrance pictures with parrots. Then literally shoved into a souvenir shop to purchase Chinese souvenirs under pressure. A couple of other shops... More
