Horrible and sad. Don't go don't support captivity of dolphins. Take a boat ride to see them in the wild instead. This place is dirty and you can tell the dolphins are depressed.

Although I didn't stay in the hotel itself, I know people who have stayed at this hotel and said it was below average. We visited here to swim with the dolphins and it is way overpriced and dolphins in chlorinated water is cruel. The dolphins...More
