The lazy river is much warmer and provides some much needed relaxation. The staff are always friendly and helpful. My only negative is... More

I had not expected to see the wide variety of colorful fish that we got to swim beside! It is expensive for one day, but... More

The park still fails to convince me , yes it is beautifully landscaped and yes it gives you breakfast and lunch but seeing a almost conveyor belt amount of people heading into the dolphin experience (mmm not...
