My partner, sister in law and my sister in laws mother and myself stayed here overnight on 10/10 so we could feed the dolphins the next morning. We had a 2 bedroom apartment and we were on the ground floor, it has a pool. The apartment was ok but could maybe do with some updating and it needs heavy curtains... More

Beautiful water views. A quiet, restful location close to the marina, boat ramps, cafes.... and then there is the dolphins. Oh wow, we fed them, it was just beautiful! The unit was very comfortable. A spacious balcony to look out over the pool and the stunning view! Good beds. Clean!

Even though this was a pit stop on the way home on our road trip, we would seriously consider coming back to stay here for longer. The unit (#5) was very clean, well appointed and had decent views despite being on the ground floor. It was airy, light and comfortable. We loved the clean and organised pool/BBQ area. The succulent... More

We stayed at Dolphin Waters for one week and really enjoyed our stay. Our apartment was roomy, comfortable and spotless, with a nice balcony facing the Bay. We had a dishwasher and washer and dryer. There was also a beautiful salt water pool. The 500MB free WiFi allowance per day was more than enough. If you have 2 phones and... More

Beautiful views, clean, extremely well equipped. Deluxe doesn't do it justice. Felt like royalty. Setting on the waterfront is very special. May never make it back, but will always remember it. Staff went out of their way for us.
