Great place to stay and feel like really special.

Pros: Beautiful!
Cons: Up to date tv's that you can order movies on.
Location: great location for hiking, walking, beach; wish more shops nearby walking distance.
Went with no particular expectations since everyone's idea of wonderful is different. However, this surpassed whatever you can imagine in the way of a beautiful and ideal vacation room. Great place, great vacation!

Great location! Great Staff!

Pros: The staff and the room size and amenities.
We decided last minute to book at this hotel and they front staff was so accommodating. We had a partial view of the ocean and it was still wonderful. The pool is nice and is has easy access down to the beach and is not far from other things in the area like Pismo State Beach, horse back riding, etc.

Great location and resort with a personal touch

Posted Apr 15, 2017
Our family absolutely loved our time here. To a person the staff was always available and affable. They do a lot of little things that aren't mandatory but make the experience that much nicer. And by the way, this is my first review ever as I rarrly take the time, but Dolphin Bay deserves it.

Amazing!!

This was another amazing trip to the Dolphin Bay for us. This hotel really has no equal in the area, whether it be room size, amenities, food quality, service, or overall feel nothing can equal what Dolphin Bay has to offer. Of course all of this has a price, but if you're looking for a place worth the extra splurge you won't be disappointed

Very relaxing

We had a beautiful stay. If I had one complaint it would be that there was no air conditioning. I understand it has the ocean breeze however this week it was in the high 80's & very warm & @ times too warm where it was uncomfortable. Other than that our stay was perfect. We will come back for sure.

Thank you for posting your comments regarding your recent stay at Dolphin Bay. I am thrilled to hear you enjoyed your overall stay. As you mentioned, the weather was unseasonably warm the week of your stay. Typically, the cool ocean breeze and the ceiling fans in our suites adequately cool the room. I apologize if you experienced any discomfort due to us not offering air conditioning. We sincerely look forward to welcoming you back to the resort in the near future. Kind Regards, Lisa Carnes Guest Services Manager
