I am severely disappointed to be writing a negative review. Me and my Wife were in los cabo in February and one of the activities that we missed was swimming with the dolphin at dolphin discovery. We had a few other excursion that were planned were we had to meet at the dolphin discovery before going out on the excursion. The employee at that location were very friendly, the facilities were well kept and it was a very well organized outfit. Fast forward to March me and the wife were in Punta Cana and since we missed the opportunity to swim with the dolphins in Cabo we thought we would have the same positive experience in Punta Cana and booked the excursion. However that couldn't be further from the truth. The dolphin discovery that is operated in Punta Cana is a very poorly run and very disorganized with employees that do not enjoy their line of work so their frustration is misguided upon the guests that attended there.

The dolphin encounter was really amazing. The staff is very knowledgeable and accommodating. They went out of their way to ensure that we enjoyed ourselves, even though my daughter was very nervous and shy.
