Great little bungalows set in a pretty jungly garden right on the best beach in Ko Phangan-a little slice of heaven. Bungalows are basic but well built and have everything you need. Restaurant serves great food and staff are really friendly and helpful and go above and beyond to ensure a comfortable stay. If you're looking for somewhere to come...

Big thumbs up on the location, staff and awesome food. Bungalow is perfect. Price is right. Hammock on the lanai included. If you are looking to stay away from the craziness of Haad Rin or Thong Sala, this side of the island has it all. You step right on the sand from your bungalows and the beach is a few...

We stayed in a family bungalow with a fan. It was set quite far back from the beach but nice and peaceful. Room was really clean and well kept and big enough for 4 of us. Bungalows are set in lovely gardens, the restaurant is really good and staff were really friendly and very helpful. They made our onward travel...

This was the first place I stayed when I arrived in Koh Phangan. I've now been to Phi Phi, Koh Lanta, Chiang Mai and Pai and I still list after the perfectly still beach of Thong Pan Yai. Dolphin Bungalows provided the perfect retreat in an idyllic setting and the beach is still may fav in Thailand so far. I'd...

We stayed here for three nights over the NewYears period and really enjoyed our stay! Bit out of the way of Haad Rin and Thong Sala (We had to pay 400B to get here which was a ripoff, can get it for 250B each) The beach was beautiful but was pretty quiet with mostly couples and families. Highly recommend the...

We just stayed 2 Nights there and we really liked the beach and the bungalow. The bungalow was clean, had a cold shower and a mosquito net. Everything you need. The food is a bit overpriced in comparison to other destinations in Thailand. But you can have a very good dinner at the mini bus bar and the prices a...

A collection of thirty or so bungalows scattered around paths that weave through a lush garden of bamboo trees, ponds, banana plants, roosters and animals. You walk down to the beach and the pleasantly decked out restaurant and lounge is there for you. The bungalows are cheap and clean. An superb place to relax for a few days.

Stayed at Dolphin for several days over the holidays 2014. It was an amazing tranquil resort very small but nice and quiet. The town does not have much to offer but the next beach over (30 minute walk or short 5-10 minute drive has many restaurants and bars and more upscale resorts. We loved the quaint beach bungalows at Dolphin...

Right by the beach, all you have to do is wake up and hope the corals haven't beat up the ocean during the night. The location is great, you can spend all day drinking coffee / beer and appreciating the different sunlight effects on the postcard-like sea view (not from your room window though, ok, relax). People working in Dolphin...

It is true that the management recently changed. We didn't come here when it was the old management, so can't compare. But, compared to other accommodation on the same beach, Dolphin Bungalows has the prettiest bungalows, the most relaxed and unpretentious atmosphere, the friendliest staff, and (perhaps) the best food on the beach. It has a tranquility that the other...
