We had a good time both watching other people with the various mammals and then also swimming with the dolphins ourselves. It was a windy day at the beach and so we had to find something else to do. Ended up here on a whim and was able to get a reservation for only a bit later that day. There was enough going on and good food available in the town to spend 2 hours while the time came around. My only complaint was that too much of the swim time was spent posing for the camera people who then wanted way too much for the photos. We felt somewhat pushed to pay for those, although did not in the end.

Did this for my daughters 6th birthday. It was our second time with dolphin discovery. We've done the encounter and now the adventure (?) the one with the boogie board push and belly ride. Our whole family loved it, we lucked out and were the only 4 in this time slot so we got lots of time with the dolphins. Only complaint is the price for the digital pics. Keep bargaining, they'll come down a little on the price!

When we drove into the area where this Dreams hotel and dolphin discovery were located im afraid i wasnt impressed,as others have said i didnt like the green water either and i feel the photos didnt come out that well as it was so dark you couldnt get a good shot of the dolphins under the water.

The staff are what make the experience very very good you spend alot of time with the dolphins doing different tricks etc,i didnt think the kayaking was worth it though.


We then had to walk past the adult pool at the hotel only to see some sexal act being proforming in the pool (they were all drunk and very loud) we were two families with young children i thought it was really bad !!)
The Dreams hotel looked awful like a prison complex what ever you do dont book this hotel !!!
We walked into room to be given the big sale like others have said its expensive and they dont even print you photos they are just on a disc.

Staff were good but i wouldnt recommed i think there are better places to swim with dolphins in mexico.

Awesome value even at entry level pricing. Mammals are outstanding. Smaller groups so you get more one on one time. Our daughter couldn't attend because of a leg Injury and yet after our time with the dolphins was over they took her stuffed animal and got photos not only of the dolphins but sea lions too!!! Your staff made our adventure one to remember for a life time!!! Thank you!! You guys are incredible, and our daughter LOVED the photos.

with many pens in a natural setting, this was awesome to "watch", we enjoyed the "after the show" experience of the dolphins playing with one another.
