Stayed here for 2 nights. Best food on the island. I had a pasta with cream sauce and it was delicious! Good prices as well. The accommodations in the older bungalows are older and minimal but the staff are very friendly and laid back. In 3 weeks this was the first time I felt fully relaxed! Love this place. Would...

11 years on after our stay in 2006 we came back to Dolphin to see what, if anything, had changed. To our absolute delight it hadn't. Despite changing owners since then, its kept the cool, calm and chilled vibe to it. Waking up each morning to the sound of the jungle too was wonderful. We stayed in room p.12, and...

Aggressive dogs on the property, terrible beach view with fishing boats, sand bags, and trash. Unfriendly staff, terrible wifi that only worked in the restaurant area. Staff wouldn't allow hanging around without purchase of overpriced items, so using the wifi wasn't free.

Came here for a couple of days, ended up staying for two weeks! We stayed at one of the simple, fan bungalows. Got it for a great price since we stayed for such a long time. Simple, but very clean and comfortable. Great budget place!

After 11 years I've come back,with two children this time... no delusion for sure...this place is special, children are welcome and adults can relax in paradise. I had the deluxe bungalow but the standard ones are excellent as well. The usual problems with the low tide on the beach but...i would come here over and over again
