    This September we went on a cruise to Aruba and recommended us this attraction by its "beaches" and a place where you can dive and practice snorkel. We were taken on a bus where they make us sign a document where it exonerates the Centre of any responsibility for possible injuries (known or not) that we can produce ourselves to practice various activities. This bus leaves us on a pier where a boat takes us to the island in 5 minutes. The impression that we gave was disappointing. It is very close to a power station. You can not go snorkeling but in a very specific and small, place where the staff treats visitors as if we were children. The beaches are two areas where water reaches to the waist, the water is dirty and with stones. The included food was buffet style and little varied. To make matters worse visit lasting 4 hours really hard 2, because time has since takes you and brings the bus. Finally a hoax at all levels. Please do not choose this tour if they sell it on a cruise ship.

    Is an island located 5 minutes by boat from aruba. We paid $104 each and for that kind of money we expected much more. The "water park" consists of 3/4 slides mainly for children. You can perform various activities and meals are included in the price and the service bar throughout the day. The lunch buffet is poor and the stuff isn't that great. Only thing we didn't like so much was the snorkling, we saw beautiful fish. Overall I would not recommend it.

    This trip was a meal inclusive day trip with multiple included activities on the island that are included with the price. This is a one stop big fun for the price. It's even better with a coupon. Kids loved it, adults loved the open bar, the food was decent and tasty for breakfast and lunch. The zip line was not crowded. The banana boat ride was tame enough for smaller kids, but still fun for the adults. The snorkeling wasn't that deep that younger or smaller kids were afraid to go into the designated areas. There was plenty of add on items to experience, but there was simple stuff like hair braiding and airbrush tattoos.

    The kids loved it, the teens loved it, and the adults...well...we enjoyed it pretty well. The snorkeling alone was probably worth the price and it has an open bar. If you're coming independently, make taxi plans for leaving because it's >90% tour groups.

    That was good experience. Fun activities for kids on the water playground, snorkeling at no additional court. Tasty burgers and fries also at no additional cost. Zip line adventure and string trampoline jumping. The only what you pay for additionally is kids temporary tattoo and souvenirs in the shop. However we took it half day and for us it has been well enough.

    Just went for a day. Not too busy so we had plenty of time to explore. My personal favorite was the banana boat rides. Must do! Food was great and unlimited frozen cocktails made for a great excursion

    There were loads of activities yet still some privacy if you wanted it. We snorkeled and power snorkeled, and zip lined.
