They were able to get us in a little earlier than check in, the hotel was clean, the front desk people were friendly, the hotel overall was nicer than I expected, and the beds and rooms were comfortable! We were only there for one night and I would stay there again!

This was our first trip to the St. Pete Beach area and after research on Trip Advisor we chose Dolphin Beach Resort. We requested a room with pool access, first floor walk out if possible several months out and we got our wish. Excellent access to the pool, the lounge and the beach. Couldn't have been better! Room was clean,...

Very pleased with room, location and cleanliness. I would like housekeeping done before 5Pm.I had to call housekeeping because so late in the day. They forgot cups and some toiletries.That would be my only complaint. I am already booked here for January.

The front desk was great, they even printed off my boarding passes for us for the next day. The outside bar was fun, but each night was the same, kareoke. The beach was nice, no peddlers, lots of water rentals available. We didnt use the pool but it looked nice and was busy.

We have just returned from a week long stay at the Dolphin and I really can't understand what all the negative reviews are about. Fair enough, it's not 5 star luxury but they don't charge 5 star luxury prices. The hotel is clean and comfortable and it's in a fantastic location. The staff are all attentive and friendly and the...

I was here recently for a conference. The rooms and hallways smell like mold. We had to continuously take allergy meds just to make it a few days. The front desk staff was rude and some of the rooms were trashed when people checked in (curtains all over the bed, dirty towels etc). My room was clean however it did...

Every inch of our trip was awesome. People friendly, Tika bar was excellent. Food was great and service was nice. No problem with the room and we were on the first floor so we walked out of our room to the pool. My granddaughter and I had a wonderful time. A lot of good memories were made for a life...

Our room at the Dolphin was huge by beach standards- 2 double beds, kitchenette, entertainment area, and spacious bathroom/shower area on the third floor. Ice machine and elevator within a short walk, without hearing them all night. The facility offers a large family pool, cafe, restaurant, shuffleboard, and tiki bar. Located next door to public beach, across the street from...
