We booked our family holiday with another family at dolphin Dunes for a week over the Christmas period . They were happy to take our booking and had the nerve to insist on 100 percent payment prior to arrival. if we didn't have to make full payment prior to arrival we would have left on the first day because of the facilitys and the owners attitude didnt meet expectations.
Dolphin dunes is not family friendly in anyway.In fact I must state that if you have children of any age this is simply not the place to go ever . AT the time of making the booking it was clearly explained to the The owner that we were two family's with two children each . After taking our money a month prior to arrival the owner had the audacity on arrival to tell us that they were not a children friendly resort.
The rooms didn't live up to expectation either . We took a self catering unit and there wasn't even a oven to cook in .There was no television in the lounge , no sports channels on the television .a number of the power plugs didnt work and the jacuzzi bath didn't work .
This is simply not something that is fitting or acceptable for any four star establishment .
Being a regular visitor to the area Dolphine dunes is simply not a place I'd ever visit or want to visit again.
