  • I visited here about 6/7 years ago and have always told everyone since "its the best aquarium I've ever been to!" It was huge and I easily spent over an hour in it. This time I was excited to take my young children to it and expected to see the same thing. Except.....it's now about half the size. Where has it all gone? A little disappointed given it's over-inflated admission price. The kids enjoyed it but we struggled to pad out 30 minutes. A very expensive half hour! I won't be going again and it's definitely lost the best aquarium title for me. Shame.
  • This is a massive aquarium that is include the the Atlantis The Palm hotel. There are beautiful displays with very nice colour effects. The centrepiece is the huge fish tank which is about 8 metres deep and which is filled with an extensive selection of fish including several types of sharks. The attraction is included for hotel guests and take about 45 minutes to go through. If you have time, it is nice and relaxing to just sit in front of the fish tank for a much longer period.
  • I am going to write this review as a person who visited the aquarium 7 years ago and once again today. Unfortunately, this is now no longer the aquarium experience that is used to be (where is the absolutely ginormous grouper with one eye gone?). The aquarium was approximately twice the size 7 years ago and this is the first time that I have ever experienced an attraction get smaller and worse. There is now a halving of the overall number of tanks and the signature 'massive glass wall' is behind a secondary area that you have to pay to get into on top of the aquarium entry price. To say that I am disappointed at the overt commercialism on display here is an understatement. What was a great attraction has been turned mediocre by the short sighted powers that be. Whoever made this decision should think hard about it as rather than 'wow' it is now merely 'meh'. When I visited last time it took me about am hour and a half to walk around and this time I as in and out within a half hour! (So is it now actually 1/3rd the size it was??) Would I go again? No. Would I recommend it to anybody? Probably not. If you want a distinctly average experience then give it a go, but there are better ways to spend your £25 entry.
  • Lost chambers visit is a great experience for kids and adults alike. It show cases a vast array of sea life in a great ambience. Atlantis itself is a gem in Dubai and lost chambers is a unique part of this destination. Good to recommend for all.
  • Sea will be live here. You will feel lost in beauty of this. Very nice place to visit if you are coming to AQUAVENTURE. Varied fishes and sea creatures will be here for your curiosity. You feel you are near them. It's totally on you how much time you want to spend here with marine life live.
