This was our 5th stay at this hotel although the first for 6 years. We make a point of asking to stay in the Gulf view rooms with downstairs preferred as these open straight onto the the beach. These are great rooms-they are the most expensive, however we find the extra cost worth it.
Common complaints we`ve noticed on this site are:
Rude Staff. We we`re given a warm welcome upon arrival, and front desk staff did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable, especially the guy with stud in his eyebrow. As we had paid out for one of the higher spec rooms we where never in an adversarial situation with the staff so can`t comment on problems other posters suffered.
Decor. Hotel has a kind of garish flower theme throughout. This is traditional Florida (Flora/Florida) style, we have stayed in many villas with the same decor.
Bugs. Found 3 roach like creatures during week. Again have had same problem at villas, particularly downstairs.
Musty Smell. Slight odour in our room, we feel this is inevitable with people stepping in of beach onto the carpet and was hardly noticeable.
Parking. As per earlier poster, strongly recommend on Karaoke nights (Saturday/Sunday) either eating at the hotel or dinning somewhere within walking distance, or you`ll run the risk not being able to park upon return.
Room quality. We paid for best rooms. Most however overlook the car park or the next door condos, as they say you pays your money.
Whilst there are some issues at the hotel we are glad we weren`t swayed by some of the negative posts and would cheerfully recommend the Dolphin providing you`re prepared to pay the bit extra.
