Well there's nothing too special about the Dolphin, but if you want a place with a bed and a kitchen and you plan on spending most of your time at the beach, the Dolphin could be a good fit, but if you're looking for anything romantic, or a place you'd like to spend time indoors, this might not be the right spot for you. The whole place could really use an update, especially for the price. Bedding is super old and ugly, mismatched and stained, bring your own stuff if you want sleep comfortably. This place could actually be decent if they bothered to touch things up and buy some new bedding (it was pretty gross). The location is excellent, but I think I'd rather stay a bit further away and avoid this place again in the future. The owner was pretty nice, but she also came bursting into our room once or twice uninvited, which I didn't like. The front desk office smells so strongly of dead fish I would pre-pay over the internet to avoid having to go in there. I did like the kitchen and the table, we were able to easily cook our own food and were able to find the right dishes and cutlery to do so, even if it was a bit ghetto. Overall, it just is what it is and it's definitely in the "motel" category. Next time we'll spend a bit more and go somewhere else though to make the trip a bit more special.
