Having stayed at Dolphin Bay Resort many times, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing spot to get away. The area is calm and uncrowded, except for the weekends when party buses may cruise by, but overall a peaceful place for families with kids. The beach is not a party area, it's pretty clean and safe. The hotel grounds certainly caters to families with young kids. There's an open lawn with a playground area and a huge kids' pool.
The restaurant is open and spacious, next to the pool and opens toward the beach. The food is pretty good and recently the menu had a 'face-lift' with some nice international additions. Breakfast buffet is very good. The staff is friendly and helpful- a definite high point! I've found the staff very accommodating and hospitable. I'd recommend the Thai massage at the hotel. The beach is directly across the street and the pool is nice. Rooms are pretty standard and basic, and the wifi is a bit spotty, but it's free.
I'll definitely be returning to this spot as long as I travel to Thailand.
