There´s no question that adult will have a great time relaxing by the beach. It´s a calm atmosphere with no crowds. Just 1000 people per day, and you got to make reservation of... read more

There´s no question that adult will have a great time relaxing by the beach. It´s a calm atmosphere with no crowds. Just 1000 people per day, and you got to make reservation of the day. It´s somewhat expensive at first sight, but when you put all of the advantages in the paper is quite reasonable . Costs 300 U$ /... More

It was paradise, a personal island oasis!! We were greeted at the main entry by very cordial staff who completed our reservation and provided us with a photo identification card and lanyard. The resort limits the number of people allowed in which made the experience feel more personal and intimate, it was about quality not quantity. My boyfriend and I... More

We spent the day with our guide Todd at Discovery Cove. We were able to swim with dolphins and other marine life, visit the bird atrium and even get a special visit from a kinkajou. My eight year olds favorite park in Orlando.

Arrived at 730am and were allocated a 10am dolphin swim. Breakfast was fine. Went to the dolphin swim briefing only to learn that the dolphins weren't keen to meet us today as it is their mating season, come back at 1130am which we did and fortunately had the swim then. One short swim each with the dolphins but a close... More

I booked this trip here as a surprise for my now wife back in 2001. It is a blow you away place and is a must do if you are visiting the area. We swam with dolphins, stingray and all the other fish there. I think the photo pricing is a bit expensive but it may have changed now. Take... More

Great dolphin swim but photo's were $229 which was a complete exploitation of the people of already paid £350 to do the swim.

Loved loved loved Discovery Cove! Why? -Not crowded; I think they purposely keep number of people manageable. -Relaxing- we just sat on the beach chair in the sand, enjoying the sun, watching people in the water and playing in the sand. Again, r-e-l-a-x-i-n-g which I have not experienced at the other Orlando parks. -All inclusive so you don't need to... More

This was by far the highlight of the holiday. Although an expensive day, everything was included (except photos) Breakfast, lunch, snacks, drinks all of which there was a good choice. The frozen pina coladas are a must for adults. The park does not get crowded as there is a limit on guests each day. We spent 30 minutes with the... More

This was on my wife bucket list and it did not disappoint. From the good food and beverage selection, to the many interactive things to do, a great experience. Wife enjoyed the heated areas and her first snorkeling experience. She has a hearing problem and the instructors at the dolphin swim made sure she was involved and understood everything. Although...
