  • Good place and tasty food. And also very good for kids. Blue ocean restaurant price is good. Aquarium price 55 SR from 2 years. Dolphin show 55 SR from 9 month. Recommended to take your food in open area with sea view.
  • Horrible. Please do not go to dolphin shows, it's animal abuse. Torture. Dolphins are supposed to be out at sea with their family. The chlorine in the water damages the eyes of the dolphin causing them to be blind sometimes. They do not get the amount of food they need and get beaten to do tricks just to get a small piece of fish. If you attend this, you support animal abuse. You are torturing animals just for the pleasure of your happiness. I would rate this zero stars but it won't let me post.
