  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The staff was so polite and went above and beyond to make people happy. They clearly stated the restaurant closed at 700 and a waitress saw mulling around outside looking at 720 and she asked if we wanted anything. We just wanted a couple drinks and she got them for us quickly and was so nice. We did t ask she just wanted to help us! It was great!

Beautiful location. Beautiful rooms. Just wish kitchen counter and kitchenware smelled clean and not like someone just made some eggs and never washed the plates.

Beautiful setting; wonderful food. Room was huge and even though it was not an ocean view room, we really could see the ocean from our balcony. Can't wait to go back.

My experience at Dolphin Bay Resort has been amazing. The “partial” ocean view room is amazing. We have an almost unobstructed view from our bedroom and balcony. The room itself is huge and has all the amenities you could ask for. The property is well maintained and the pool and hot tub were nice and warm.
