This is a nice place to visit. You can see dolphins and swim among small fishes! We highly recommend this place. Just be aware that there is no kosher dining facility!

We liked the diving part. Loved the dolphins! Good food at their restaurant. Activities for the children. Very nice beach. Clean. But I was disappointed about the non proffessionals pics and films they took. Its was much to expenssiv and not worth the money! Don't pay for the films in advance.

When my kids were 6 I promised them to come back for an intro dive with dolphins at the dolphin reef. I reserved well ahead since it was holiday and we came in around 10 AM. The beach was packed to the point where there was hardly anywhere left to seat but that didn't bother us. We went in for... More

The diving was awsome. The instructors are very good! Nice people. The guy that did the fotos/video was great. The beach itself is not that great. It is worth the diving, everything else was not that good.

As visited this place several times, I was disappointed :-( They changed the concept of feeding the dolphin, I appreciate that, but give me the option to know about it ahead, before I pay and enter the resort. The local staff are unfriendly and impolite, when I ask some info, it seem I am disturbing them. The restaurant is awful,... More

This privte beach is quiet (no music/balls are alwoed). There are floating bridges in the dolphins area, there are 4 dolphins. The staff is great! You can see the friendship with the dolphins and its great. There is nice food and drinks. You can scubadive with the dolphins too.

Watsu massage is a very special experience at dolphin beach. You can also enjoy of a zen place with different pools. Don't miss the terrace and the free wine that generally the team don't speak about ...!
