“Great for kids”
Reviewed 19 February 2013

Went with the family for a short trip, and was pleasantly suprised.

The staff were extremely friendly and so nice it put you in a good mood. We used the bikes and took the kids out along the beach as it feels as though you are on an island as it is not overly developed like Hua Hin.

The room was what you expect, nice & quaint. Restaurant staff friendly and good food.

For a kids hotel was hoping for more shaded areas the kids could play in or some part of the pool as it gets really hot.

Overall very good though

I agree with what most people say about this being a great place for families. My kids (ages 4 and 15 months) had an amazing time. It's the pool with really shallow end, slide and lots of space. There is a lot of nice space for adults to hang out. My biggest gripe with the place was that our bed was terrible. I could feel every spring in it. Also as kid friendly as the hotel is I felt that our room (we rented a 3 bedroom villa) was not kid friendly at all. There was no bath mat so my 15 month old was constantly falling while showering. Not one plastic cup or plate in the kitchen. Everything glass including the water bottles. Also there was a large knife on a shelf toddler height. Attention needs to be shown for the rooms as well as the grounds when it comes to kids. The hotel recently went with free wifi but it is so hit or miss. We didn't get anything in our villa. It would also go really slow at night when most parents have time to check it. Besides these few annoyances, we had a great time and would go back. The beach is awesome and the town is sleepy and low key.

Dear Ann, thank you very much for your review. I’m glad your children got a good time and I’m sorry it wasn’t totally comfortable for you. We just took the resort over a month ago and the bedding are definitely on our list of improvement. Internet connection are really a problem in our area but at least now it’s free and available in the pool, restaurant, lounge and garden area and we are working on the quality. Thank you for the plastic cup remark, as a mother of young children I totally agree with you and If you have more suggestion please send me an email : agathe@dolphinbayresort.com. I will be very happy to meet you next time you are visit us. Agathe
