It was such a fun treat to be able to see dolphins perform, manatees get fed, and sea lions talk to strangers. We were able to walk through the marina and take in the sights for free! When we return to Playa, we will let our kids swim with the dolphins!!

The only draw back was the very high prices for the photo packages and no cameras aloud for individual use. The park was clean and the buffet lunch was good with lots of verierty to choose from.

The marine specialists are very good at their jobs and I believe the dolphins and manatees and sea lions are cared for 1 st class.

The day was very well organized. We arrived and were given the opportunity to have a buffet lunch at the attached restaurant - the food was average and the service provided at the restaurant was very good. We then went on an 1 1/2 hr Catamaran excursion just off the coast and got the chance to swim at this beautiful... More

My family visited the Dolphin Discovery twice! Initially i thought i might be put off seeing Dolphons in captivity but the size of their environment is massive compared to anything else I have seen - Sea World etc. The staff are all Marine life specialists and it is very evident to see that they put the welfare and nurture of...

We stayed at the Dreams & stumbled upon this place by accident. It is within walking distance from the Dreams but from other hotels I'm not sure. We were able to grab a Starbucks there too. Prices were much more reasonable than at the resort. We spent just under $500 CAD for 4 people to swim with the dolphins, Manatee,... More

They tell you one thing and do another...I had some tickets that would good for one year and now they won't honor them. I have this in writing. I even scan it to them stating that. They said sorry. Bad business practice.

An experience of a lifetime! Wonderful to get so close to the dolphins. Amazing creatures. So gentle, yet so powerful. The facility was well organised and the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. It was a great day. We were picked up at the resort and taken back after the experience. We had the Royal Swim plus package - one... More

Our family did the Royal Swim which included 1 hour with the dolphins, 1/2 hour with the sea lions and 1/2 hour with the manatees. It was a fantastic day and was well worth the money spent. HOWEVER, the photos were a complete rip-off. The cost of the photos was almost the same as the cost of all 3 of... More
