I didn’t understand why I paid a resort fee but had to pay to sit in chairs on the private beach. That was ridiculous. My room 201 was in the worst place and should never be as booked room. Sits right over the valet and that’s all you hear all night

We had such a great experience at the Dolphin! The staff was so friendly and allowed us to check in very early. The pool, bar and beach access was perfect. We will definitely stay here again.

Easy and clean for family, I love when a hotel room has hard floors instead of carpet. Felt very comfortable with my young children (ok they were a bit loud) while still feeling we were in a decent and clean place. Loud music Saturday evening on the beach, we loved it and it ended by sunset. would return
