Limited number of visitors allows the park to stay very peaceful and chairs everywhere. Unlimited food and beverages while in the park. Water and pools are so clear and have a natural feel. Came away totally relaxed which never happens at the big theme parks.

We absolutely loved the whole Discovery Cove experience. Yes it's expensive, particularly for a family of four but we knew it was a once in a lifetime opportunity to swim with Dolphins in beautiful surroundings. The whole day was a lovely getaway from the hustle & bustle of the busy parks and a chance to relax & recharge our batteries.... More

Great day but expensive. We did get SeaWorld, Busch Gdns and Aquatica in the price though! Breakfast bit basic, lunch good. Snacks could do with something a bit more exciting.

Liked the fact that it was all inclusive whilst we were there. And you get sea world, aquatica and Busch gardens tickets for 2 weeks included in the price!

Drink, Swim, Eat, Play all day!!! AMAZING!!!!! Relaxing....do it. No parking fee either - it's like an all inclusive resort with the perks of being able to go to their other parks for the rest of the year.

Got there at 0730, left at 1830 but could have stayed longer! Did sea venture which was fascinating...but quite cold! Did with teenagers (16 and 14) who loved it but I don't think it would suit pre teens as the helmet is quite heavy. Quality of breakfast food not great (gristly sausage and hard waffles - left under lights for... More

To the all inclusive breakfast, lunch, snacks, drinks, and swimming how do you go wrong?? The fish in the reef with the huge rays... More
