We couldn't of asked for a more perfect place to stay for our honeymoon. We only wished we would of spent our entire time in new smyrna rather than the first 6 days in orlando. Now we know better. Where do I start the hotel is absolutely beautiful and in the perfect little town with the best food we've had the pleasure to eat (breakers and the garlic). The service was amazing and staff was second to none. Taylor helped me get onto some fish right off the dock and Brett and Shelia pointed us into the right direction as to where to eat. Andrew was also great and made us a wonderful breakfast. It was a joy waking up to such a good meal and happy faces. The honeymoon suite is where we stayed and we loved it (especially the tub). And yes you will see dolphins at the black dolphin inn. We saw them all 4 days. Once again we would like to thank everyone at the Black Dolphin Inn for such a wonderful stay and truly 5 star service. We hope to make the trip down to New Smyrna for many years to come.
