“Totally Amazing”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

We went to the Bravisimo Show at this site. The dinner was absolutely amazing, and that itself was worth the price we paid. The show was terrific.The only complaint I had that the bus returned us to the hotel either immediately following the show at 10:30 or at midnight. We chose the early one, but would liked to have had an opportunity to check out the Casino and stay a little longer, but not until midnight.

“Good for Toddlers and Teenagers”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

This was a great day out. Very expensive though. The dolphin swim was about $200 per person. But food is included (not drinks). And you can't bring drinks or food into the place. They check your bag.
They have a beach, which is a great break from walking around.
We were lucky during our visit as it was cloudy. Otherwise, be prepared that it's going to be a rough sunny day; very little shade.
Not to miss: The bird sanctuary. Amazing!!! I can't say enough about it. The parakeets come up to you, and eat out of your hand. You can pet the Parrots and toucans as well.
The sea lion show. Again amazing and really funny.

Be warned, they want you to buy their pictures. When my daughter and I did the dolphin encounter, there were no cameras allowed, just the Ocean World photographers. And their pictures are expensive.
All dolphin experiences include the slide. It was OK. I wouldn't pay extra to go on it if it wasn't included in your ticket.
Husband and friends did the shark swim, which includes the stingray petting and swimming. They said that part was OK. But they would have wanted more encounter with the shark (and it's a sand shark, very small teeth.)

Overall, it was fun and it was a nice distraction from sitting by the pool at our hotel.

“dread lock dolphin trainer rude and ruined experience”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

the shows are very well done but the rudeness of many of the dolphin crew was unbelievable they may be good with dolphins but are deverly lacking with people.it was my daughters dream to have the dolphin experience the dolphins were great but the staff were rude and openly made fun of older people or anyone who may be a few pounds overweight or too old or a bit nervous etc i can honestly say i never was treated with such rotten customer service in my life and we had the same view from many people on the bus .the one thing i can say their advertisement of once in a lifetime experience is true because i will never return.it is too bad they have excellent shows but their trainers suck and need to know they are not ;all that ..Save your money
