We enjoyed hanging at the beach, it was lovely and very relaxing. One of our children dived with the dolphins and he was very excited. I'm not sure in summer it will be as relaxing as now. The price is a little bit too high for the season.

Dolphin Reef is one of our favorit places. I just love the place. This is perfekt to stay all day with your friends and family. The beach is not so big but it´s safe and calm. We always like to see dolphins and have learned a lot of their behaviors. Our grandchildren loved to take contact with them. We also... More

yes, they are intelligent. Yes, they are curious. Yes they invoke feeling of calm. Seem to prefer sunny days. Don't go for the cheapest tour; tend to employ non dolphin experts. We learnt so much. A lifetime experience

I scuba dived with the dolphins. My instructor (Barak), was great and the scuba diving itself was amazing. However, for a place that is very costly, I would expect better facilities (a restroom that is bigger than the person accommodating it for example...). The beach is very small, I did not attend it. The reef is wonderful and calming. With... More

This is by far the most beautiful pleasant and interesting beach in Eilat. Other than the main attraction of watching the dolphins and swimming with them, You could also enjoy nice wooden terraces built overseeing the beautiful scenery with many indulgences

We only took the basic option of beach. We walked around, place is pretty, saw the dolphins being fed, very moving. Good food and decent price at the beach restaurant. Was in February, the sun was out and it was great, not too many people. Probably in the summer more crowded. Toilets were clean and astethic. Enjoyed it. Entrance a... More

Don't know where to start. Everything in the dolphin reef is top. The place itself, the activities, the staff, the food. I really can't think of anything that was not just top. We have stayed in dolphin reef yesterday and today. Yesterday we went snorkeling with the dolphins. A great experience. They take small groups (I think max. 4 persons)... More

I booked the snorkelling with dolphins for my daughter and myself. We absolutely loved it. The entire compound is a great and relaxed hang out to spend a couple of hours. It doesn't look like much from the road but once you're inside a haven opens up to you. It's a great place for childrn of all ages. I would... More

This beach has kept it's unique character for many years. A quaint oasis with a diving center, small but clean swimming beach, snack bar and gift shopr, and the main attraction, open wharves going out into the water, dolfins swim in freely from the ocean and you can observe or pet them if they choose to swim up to you,...
