Although I didn't stay in the hotel itself, I know people who have stayed at this hotel and said it was below average. We visited here to swim with the dolphins and it is way overpriced and dolphins in chlorinated water is cruel. The dolphins look so bored before we went swimming with them. Staff were friendly. Lunch included in... More

Captured Dolphins in Chlorinated Water is not an adventure, hotel looks tired. There are many any other nicer hotels to see the adventures of Dolphins, take a boat ride out to see the precious creatures in there natural habitat Captured to make money out of is shameful

Men m hjælp fra vores balinesiske familie lykkedes det at få det bestilte værelse/ og ikke det skodværelse vi fik i første omgang. Vi så delfinshow og måske levede delfinerne under rimelige forhold.
