Lovely room with amazing views. We found Andre to be very welcoming and helpful. The breakfast was delicious with a wide variety to choose from, not just the run of the mill bacon and eggs one comes to expect from a B&B. The kitchen staff were also very friendly. Pity we could only stay for one night - will definitely...

Loved every minute in this lovely establishment will recommend it to anyone. Our room, which was spacious had a beautiful sea view, loved the access onto the beach. Easy access from the car park to the room. The gardens and outside areas were well maintained. Staff were friendly and helpful. Thank you will visit again soon.

Received a very warm welcome from Andre, our host, who helped with luggage and explained everything in the unit. We had a garden suite - own private patio, fully equipped kitchen, lounge, big bedroom with separate space for luggage,...

We only stayed here for one night, but wished we could have stayed longer. The garden cottage we had was much larger than expected and very clean & comfortable and fully equipped for self-catering if needed. The views from the deck in the main house are spectacular at anytime of day. The hosts were also very friendly and accommodating. We...

Dolphin Dunes is the perfect location. The owners take pride in their service and we had a warm welcome. Great breakfast too. We will definitely use Dolphin Dunes again. Great value for money and literally a stones throw from the beach.

My Husband and I happened to stumble across Dolphin Dunes guest house while planning our Holiday. And to say we were blown away is a understatement. Our room and view was breathtaking. Breakfast was always yummy. The staff and owners were all extremely polite and friendly. Our expectations were exceeded and we can't wait to return.
