“Dolphin Inn Stay - fabulous”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

I stayed at the Dolphin in for 4 nights in mid-July. It was really really lovely. Iris is great and the place had just been re-decorated so looked new. It was very clean and the rates are good too. The Inn is also very conveniently located to beaches and shops. I will be staying here again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a clean place to stay that is good value. I can't wait to go back. Thanks Iris!!!

Room Tip: think they are all lovely. Didn't see them all, nor the apartments which were brand new.

We found Dolphin Inn via this link from The Guardian http://www.guardian.co.uk/travel/2010/dec/06/caribbean-budget-places-to-stay?INTCMP=SRCH. We arrived with a view to staying for a week and moving on, but everything you want on holiday in Barbados is provided by the Dolphin Inn and its surrounds. We stayed three weeks in all in one of the lovely self-contained apartments which offer excellent value for money, being cleaned regularly, with satellite TV and wireless. The beach is less than five minutes walk away, and its easy to get around and use Dolphin Inn as a base. We hired a car for four days which was more than enough to see the island. Iris the owner runs a really lovely and friendly place. If you're going to Barbados on a budget go to the Dolphin Inn. We couldn't rate it more highly.

Room Tip: We stayed in apartment 4 which was on the end so you only had neighbours one side (although we didn...

I stayed at Dolphin Inn for 10 days at the end of May. That was my second time staying with Iris. She was very accommodating and everything was spotless. Great location!!! Dover Beach is only a 3 minute walk away. In close proximity to St. Lawrence Gap, where there are many bars and restaurants to choose from. Amazing stay and would definately visit a third time! Thank you for your hospitality Iris:-)

I stayed at the Dolphin Inn for 2 weeks and enjoyed it so much i decided to stay longer for an extra week . My time at the Dolphin Inn was amazing , the owner Iris is so friendly and it surprised me to see that she does everything her self , from managing to cleaning to receptionist to secretary ... she is quite the all rounded woman , now i read some reviews about how she is mean and loud and a whole bunch of other crap , but none of that is really true , yes she is loud , but in the most friendly and fun way ever , Iris always tried her best to meet my needs and even, arranged a taxi for me when i needed transportation , she called places for me to book tours and even offered advice when i sat and had personal conversation with her while she was cleaning my room ..... I was impressed by the cleanliness of this place .... and if anyone is looking to stay in Barbados at an affordable price , located near to night life ,beach and food ... yet still have a great night's rest because this place is always extremely quite , then i recommend staying at the Dolphin Inn .... BTW there are also apartments in the back under the name of the Blue Dolphin Apartments .. i am goign to try these out next time i visit Barbados :)

On the south coast of Barbados is a lovely little guesthouse called Dolphin Inn, run by a helpful Austrian woman called Iris. It is light, welcoming, roomy and, best of all, great value for money on an expensive island. An en suite double costs £45 per night, and there's also a kitchen, dining area, living room with TV and verandah. It is just a stroll away from beautiful, secluded beaches and the bars and restaurants of St Lawrence Gap. Using the "reggae" buses helps to reduce the costs further. Make sure you visit the small beach near the Graeme Hall nature sanctuary; we watched two turtles swimming in the sea there.
