We stayed at moon palace. Dolphin cove was right on sight. Great convenience and activity. Second time with dolphins but always a great experience.

We had an awesome time swimming with nurse sharks, playing with spiders, parrots, iguanas and other wild life I recommend it for anyone that enjoys animal interaction. The tour guides are very nice and friendly.

Absolutely fantastic. Best thing I have ever experienced on any holiday. The most clever animals in the sea. Their body feels like silk as they come up and swim past you. Has to be done.More

Loved this experience, the dolphins are so lovely and the few exercises they do it’s awesome. The guys that work at the dolphin cove are really helpful the only thing is that the pics are ridiculously high priced along with the experience.More
