We have been here to do the royal swim with the dolphins. It has been a great experience. They give you the possibility to swim with the dolphins and play with them. Obviously it's not cheap but it's a good value for money

The resort is clean, tidy and exceeded my expectations. We did the ‘royal swim’ and thought it was worth every penny! The whole experience was amazing from induction to purchasing the photos at the end. Would recommend to everyone I know!

We did the Dolphin encounter as a family and this experience is going to stay with me all my life. The smile on my little one face says it all. I would recommend this anyone who loves Dolphin.
