Reception staff were brilliant and so helpful as were all staff except housekeeping was hit and miss sometimes we got towels, water, coffee but rarely all at the same time!! We were glad...

The room I had was on the first floor and had a lovely water view from the window. The room was decorated in soothing colors and offered THE most comfortable hotel bed that I have ever slept in and will make you feel like a Princess! The towels were soft and fluffy, the hygiene products had a light and refreshing...

This was our second time staying at the Dolphin and our visit was wonderful. I was a little nervous about our room as the hotel has been under renovation and other reviewers have mentioned they did not have a renovated room. However our room was spectacular. I was most impressed at how spacious the King Room was with resort view....

Recognition of SPG status is always hit or miss depending on property, but in 30 years of travel (and Lifetime Gold on SPG) I've never had quite the experience of our recent visit to the Dolphin. a few months in advance, I requested a high floor room with a view. My assigned room had what I submit to be the...

I was so excited to finally able to go to the famous Swan as I have been to most of the resorts. The lobby was a bit confusing and easy to get twisted around. Carpets in the hall are worn and need updating. Needs were comfortable but housekeeping needs a sharper eye. I found 6 used Kleenexes in a drawer....

Just got back home from a recent stay at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort. Everything about it was more than what we could've asked for. The front desk guy (I forgot his name, but he said he was from Manchester) that checked us in was very personable and accommodating. Our room was even greater. Didn't know we had TWO...

Very pleasant and convinient place especialy for children. Rooms are clean and recently renovated. Location of hotel near to Disney theme parka in walking distance is very helpful for those who are traveling with small children. Food was avaerage but nearby at Disney Boardwalk there are some excellent restaurants.

Next to the boardwalk where you have some good street performers performing in the evening. Your evenings would be great. Walkable distance to Epcot. Convenient bus service to all parks. Late night cafeteria Picabu is good value for money.
