“Fascinating palce, great shows”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

You can easily spend a day here. We actually had only half a day since we had come in a school tour with our child. They have a lot of shows, many coral fish (of courser - it is the Phiippines, diba?). There is a nice show int he evening - do not miss it - it does not have much fish, but a lot of laser lights and is very entertaining. They also have the usual sea lion sow (try to sit in front), an area where Antartica is recreated (very very cold - with snow!).

Ocean park also has a high priced hotel - we did not stay here, but we heard good reviews about it.

There are a lot of eating places - so you can even have dinner after the park closes. I suggest you come here early, and try to avoid weekend crowds

Great experience and much better than the one in Singapore or in Hongkong. Looking forward to more exciting additions.

“very fun experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

First of all it is very expensive when you buy in the ocean park entrance. It's better to buy in groupon websites so that you can have discounts. It was very fun especially with your family or friends. we went there in the morning and we got out at exactly 7 pm. A must try attraction in manila :) great for kids by the way.

“Head for The Beach Instead & Do Snorkeling”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

The building exterior looking from the distance look like some cockpit arena. Some serious design and aesthetic issues and definitely you would not appreciate if you had been to Singapore and Bangkok version. Why do we always have to settle for less and inferior version?So I say forget about this instant under the sea attraction and head to the beach instead and some snorkeling.

“Nothing Special”

It may be novel for the Philippines, but not for the rest of us. OK if you have kids I suppose. I wont be returning as there are better tings to do around Manila.
