This is my second time staying at Dolphin Beach Resort. Good value in an excellent location right on the beach. Nice rooms. Ken at the bar is extremely nice and helpful. Would stay here again. Definitely recommend it.

We reserved a one night stay. 5 days prior to our visit the money was deducted from our bank account. Upon check-in (Saturday afternoon) the staff tried to charge us again. We showed proof via mobile device, that the money was deducted form our account. Monday morning we were notified that the room charge was AGAIN deducted from our bank...

This hotel is great for the location and how the quaint pool area is just steps from the beach. The rooms are outdated but clean. There is a fun tiki bar right on site with Live music on weekends. No outdoor bathrooms though so try to get a room close to the bar/ pool area. The lobby bathrooms were kept...

I've now waited 20 mins for a server to acknowledge me for breakfast. She's waited on others but ignored me. That's the half of it. The front desk folks don't smile or are pleasant at all. The inside dining room is very dated and the service is questionable there too . The room has an outdated bath area, very nice....
