What an amazing escape from the craziness that is Orlando. I literally felt like I was in a resort, surrounded by palm trees, lush gardens and water. We swam with stingrays & dolphins, watched otters & marmosets have fun playing and fed birds in the aviary. The staff were awesome (especially when they brought animals out to tell us all... More

This was booked for my 50th birthday, an item off my bucket list. Expensive but well worth it, the experience with the dolphins is excellent and swimming with all the other fish. The resort is lovely and relaxing, limited number entry so plenty of room and loungers. You only do this kind of thing once so well worth the money

Discovery Cove was an amazing day from start to finish. You begin with a breakfast buffet (eggs, bacon, cereal, muffins, fresh fruit, French toast sticks) as early as 7:15a...however we arrived at 7:15a and probably wouldn't come until 7:45a next time as the exhibits don't open until 9am. After breakfast, you are sent to get a locker assignment and a... More

This place is stunning and makes a great day out. Me and my fiancé have been twice. I will say that we have also visited Dolphins Plus in the florida keys and prefer the actual dolphin experience there. That being said, this place is stunning.

All inclusive, for this young family allowed us the freedom to enjoy the park without worrying about food, drinks, and a thousand other things we have to carry around. Swimming with the Dolphins is a memory highlight we still recall fondly; but all the water activities were great - we truly did know where the day went. The kids loved... More

There was the best service of anywhere that I've ever gone ever! The lazy river has waterfalls and rock ledges where you can snorkel around. There are also waterfalls and nooks and crannies where you can just relax in the ridiculously warm water. The Great Reef freaks me out, but that's just me. You swim around fish, coral and stingrays,... More

I dont say this lightly as we loved Universal Studios but this was the best part of our holiday. When you arrive you are given a time slot for your dolphin swim and then you are walked down to the all you can eat breakfast, the food was of a very good quality and as its all you can eat... More

Worth every penny! Kids had a great time. Favorite part was snorkeling with the sting Ray. Can't wait to go back!

The concept of "all inclusive" one price of admission is genius for a theme park! Locker rental, wet suit rental, snorkel gear, food, drinks all included for the price! what a great day and experience without the extra hassles of where to put your things, renting additional gear etc. HIGHLY recommend this day for everyone.
