Reviewed 24 November 2013

We went in at 4 pm for the show and did the underground rivers before the show, great time. Show was different, new and fresh - LOVE it and will return again

“Great place for a day out”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

Been here twice now - first time in 1997. It is a great day out and the underground waterways to snorkel in are superb. Stay for the evening entertainment

“huge!!! go for plus ticket!!!”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

we visited Xel-Ha last time and i have to say i preferred it.. this is beautiful and the scenery is fantastic but... it all felt man made, the walking is endless and quite boring in places the eco life and conservation is everywhere to see and we are all grateful to those involved. the animals and wildlife are all beautiful and well cared for but the surroundings are very samey...
what made us a little cross was the length of the day, we were picked up at 730 and arrived here at 830, we left after the evening show at 840pm!!! yet we were only allowed 1 complimentary MEAL at 1 restaurant out of the choice of 5!!! and that doesnt include tea or coffee just soft drinks or beer. thats a long day, especially if you had children you could eat again but you had to pay :( the show was great..but we were taken to the other theatre after the interval for a more musical/dance show this proved difficult for people with babies or wheelchairs,as they had to park these outside ,not great :( was quite a walk in the dark too!!
but id definitely go but be prepared and take some food,maybe your hotel would do lunch boxes? and you can hire strollers so no need to take yours :)

Reviewed 23 November 2013

We spent four trips due to our hotel offering unlimited access. There was so much to see and do and didn't see it all. The sea life was brilliant the beaches were really nice to spend time on for
a quick breather.
The shows were excellent and would recommend seeing them.
Not enough time in one day so make sure you allow more time to appreciate it .
