Had an amazing time! The Dolphin Encounter was an incredible time and a memory that will last a lifetime. The water slides and pool were a lot of fun and the kids had a blast! The staff were very friendly and it was a very good time. The one thing that was a little off was the water in the... More

The dolphin experience was excellent and informative. While the kids loved it, the waterpark needs updated and painted.

The gift shop is ridiculously expensive and the pictures they take at the dolphin activities. ($25 dollars per picture or $99 dollars for about 10-15 pictures) they also don't... More

Loved meeting the Dolphin Dewet... it was a bit short for the cost however. We got to hang with the gigantic Iguana's outside for free for longer than we spent with the Dolphin. That being said however, I would do it again... Dolphins are amazing. AND... at this Dolphin place, the dolphins are bred and raised there, not stolen from... More

This was a once in a lifetime experience. The sea lions cracked us all up. The sea lions hug and kiss you and take you on a ride around the pool

My wife and I had done this before so we treated our daughter and grandson. They loved it! Quite a lot of interaction with the dolphins and when they were given rides by holding onto the dolphin fins, there smiles were priceless.

A very unique experience. You get a dolphin ride, you pet the dolphins, you can even train them a bit and then you get to put on a snorkeling mask and submerge in the pool up to 15 feet with the dolphin. It is a lot of fun. The group we were with was only a total of 5 people.... More

You can stay in this resort for one whole day. Didn't expect that it was a water park. Stayed all day with my kids, watched the dolphin and sea lion show. Encountered with the dolphin , their instructors were very helpful, friendly and attentive. Then stayed in the resort for couple of more hours. Had an awesome day!
