    Local and western breakfast options. Lovely dinner with seafood platter and pizza. Very friendly staff and management. The effort to maintain clean rooms and common spaces is obvious. A little paradise . . . .

    The road from the main road to the resort. Mosquitos, not much but . . . don't forget your reppelent

    Travelling alone I had such a special 2 days at Dolphin Beach- was there early November and had the whole place to myself. What a treat! Easy to communicate with the lovely manager Pat (we hung out a lot and watched England and Wales lose their World Cup matches!) who let me arrive early so I had 2 full days there but it felt like weeks! The staff were so friendly, the food was great and the pool, ambiance and views, sunsets and beach all fabulous :) I honestly had such an amazing time and would thoroughly recommend. We went out to find Dolphins and saw hundreds in huge pod :) Yes there’s a wind turbine nearby that other reviews have mentioned, but it’s really no bother and I didn’t notice it. I had the “Bottlenose” tent which was HUGE- 2 massive double beds with a great walk in shower and outside private chill out area. I was sad to leave - go there! It’s fab!

    I honestly can’t think of anything!

    We had a wonderful and friendly welcome when we arrived to the resort. We came in the dark, but the staff was so active and nice. We got hot towels, a welcome drink, everything explained in the glamping tent. Could still order food late at night.

    We came off season so no chance to see any dolphins as the sea was so rough. Price of the rooms quite overpriced. Otherwise we are very happy.

    What a beautiful spot, a small paradise. Luxury tents with care for detail in design and interior. Good beds. Very nice pool, hang outs and beautiful private sunset. Patt and her team (Sadir and all the others) were really very kind and helpful. And great food! Try the fresh tuna steak, you won’t regret it.

    Maybe a little pricy - but we thought it was worth it :)
