    Very good

    Very friendly staff. Great pool. Great access to the beach!!!

    Hotel rooms were kind of musty. But then most beach hotels are probably that way.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    We really enjoyed the location and thought the Gulf front view was awesome. My wife and I felt that this would be a nice place to have a multiple family vacation. We booked the stay over for the Rays/Yankees game. We plan to book again for a vacation or more overnights for Rays/Yankee Series. Your staff was efficient...and not rude....just not much on the friendly side.

    No complaints.....maybe updated bed comforters...afraid to think of the history on them!!

    On the beach

    I did not like the fact that because I met a friend and we both had to travel by car, we were charged an extra $20 for the second car...on a week night in an almost empty parking lot.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The hotel was very reasonably priced, the rooms clean and comfortable, and well placed for a variety of restaurants and other shops.

    The decor was somewhat dated and unattractive, the staff did not seem particularly interested in the guests. However, if you only wanted somewhere to sleep and as a base for the beach etc, this was not a major drawback. Beach/pool towels were not available.

    The location is great - close by to restaurants, Publix across the street in a decent shopping plaza

    They placed us in the room overlooking the parking lot, air conditioning rumbling was very loud, and beds sucked - very old and uncomfortable

    Exceptional

    Dolphin Beach Resort offered a great view of the Gulf, a large swimming pool with poolside bar, a competively priced restaurant with delicious food and a helpful, friendly staff. Entertainment in the hotel over the weekend. Shopping within walking distance or within a short drive. From Dolphin Beach Resort. We look forward to our next visit.

    Fabulous

    Nikki and Joe at the front desk were first class. They made us feel like we were their most important customers.

    Beach bar drinks were a little pricey. I booked a "double room" which in standard English means two rooms (like a suite) but it was only a single room. Which is okay because that's all we ended up needing, but the title would be misleading to anyone needing more room.

    Superb

    The only real dislike we had was that the air conditioning was very loud. It was controlled by a thermostat so it didn't run constantly.When it would turn on , it was Very loud and at bedtime was quite hard to get used to and go to sleep. Other than that , we had a great time and plan on returning with our family! Btw ,we had the King room w/ ocean view not the Queen room w/ 2 queen beds and ocean view.

    Very good

    Great location, close to grocery, restaurants, shopping.

    They do not allow drinks in or around the pool......at all! Staff rather nasty. Have stayed here at least five times in the past but won't stay again.

    Very good

    The location and our beachfront view room.

    Rooms were a little out dated for the price of the rooms.

    I loved the layout of the hotel. Your steps away from front desk, bar, restaurant, pool, and most important the beach. Nice staff and comfortable rooms.
