  • What a beautiful area to relax. We got to see the Dolphin show. It was only about 15 minutes long. It kept you from sitting too long. The people were very friendly. Going into the love bird cage is an experience. They give you some bird seeds and then prepare to be swarmed by birds. There were at least 8 on my hand and 2-3 on my hat. Make sure you wear a hat. They have a pool which is beautiful. It was a little cool outside so my daughter didn't venture very far into those waters. There were waterfalls and crystal blue waters. The shark show isn't really much of a show. There are nurse sharks. The guys get into the water. Be reminded that you are in the Dominican Republic because their English is not that great and often times they switch to Spanish and if you're not bilingual, you will not know what they are saying. The shark show is where they talk about the sharks and then let people who have paid get in the water and take pictures. The sea lion show is so cute. Once again the people are speaking mostly in Spanish but you can truly have a good laugh at the actions of the sea lions. There are shops and good and drinks that you can purchase while you're there. They have a beach and you can go swimming there if you like. They also have two big water slides. Overall, it is a beautiful place to be tucked inside of a resort.
  • Great shows! Great interaction! Fun for all ages! The staff are very enthusiastic about making sure everyone is enjoying themselves! Reasonably priced for what you get. Do the encounters, you'll regret it if you don't.....we did.....so we went back!
