“This hotel and resort is spectacular! There is so much to do with your family including Dolphins multiple swimming pools activities ocean viewing. The kids love the fact that you can get on a boat or a train to get from one end to the other of the resort. There are multiple sections of artwork and displayed artifacts throughout the resort which are nice to view as you walk through the resort. Service overall has been great the few times that we have stayed there. The on-site dining is very expensive in my opinion so if you are on a budget I would suggest that you stop by Queens Marketplace for your dinner or for buying groceries. There are many gorgeous beaches around the resort and close by.” – Kyler B. 9/17
“The place was fantastic. I loved the dolphins and the ocean fed lagoon. Sea turtles actually came in and socialized with the people. They seemed to be checking out the people as much as the people were observing them. The place is so large that it has a tram and boat to get you between the three separate hotel buildings. The negative is the extremely overpriced food.” – Tom S. 9/17
“We are staying in Ocean Tower and it’s great. The people who work here are very friendly and welcoming. The place is so big and there is so much to do, you could spend all week at the hotel and not get bored, if you wanted to. Highly recommend the dolphin encounter.” – Gretchen C. 9/17
