What an amazing world... Before getting there it may seem pricey but it is worth every single penny. The food is good, the staff are friendly, the place is clean and you can experience stuff here you just otherwise couldn't easily with children. Our little people (and oldies) learnt so much and loved the time we spent here! The reef... More

I loved the relaxing atmosphere. The warm water was great too as it was on a cold day that we went there. All the staff was friendly and very helpful,

We had fun and would want to go back. We enjoyed our time at the aviary feeding the birds. I'm a bit afraid to snorkel in the open water so I was super-fascinated with the Grand Reef. I appreciate being able to snorkel and see a lot of marine life in a more secure, controlled environment. Spent time in all... More

While we were a little upset at the cost, we spent the day continuously surprised and amazed (allowing us to re-think our original misgivings) because it was well worth it! The snorkeling, the lazy river, and my personal favorite, the dolphin swim! We got to swim with C.J. the Dolphin (who played Sandy in the movie Jaws 3D). AMAZING! We... More

Arriving was like going into a pastry shop that had every goodie you like. this was a trip down memory Lane bundled with science and discovery and a trip back in time. Bubble gum for the eyes.

This was a wonderfully well organised day - everything is included, food, drinks, snacks etc. We arrived just before 8am and were able to enjoy breakfast before swimming with the dolphins. After that we were free to enjoy everything else for the rest of the day. We swam in the lazy river, stopping off to enjoy the birds in the... More
