As a veteran visitor of 20 years, Dolphin is always one of the first places I visit on my twice yearly vacations. Wonderful friendly atmosphere, great food and service, and amazing cocktails! The location offers perfect scenery, a beautiful beach and a friendly welcome. You are guaranteed to want to spend at least a part of every day here. Whether you want a place to chill out, or have lots of fun, it's the perfect setting which appeals to all ages. You will definitely want to come back.

This beach bar is the one of the best beach bars , if not the best, in Malia. The food and drinks are brilliant and not really expensive. The staff is friendly and helpful. And always good for a chat. See you next year :-)

Location of this bar is the key thing. We had a few drinks here and some quick snacks which were perfectly good for a beach side bar - you're never going to get fantastic food given they really only serve snacks. However it was a pleasant environment, the sunbeds were only a couple of euro's and very comfy and its a cracking view and nice bit of beach with a sand floor seabed. Oh worth mentioning they also have a box of lilo's, toys and games for the kids and its a safe area for them to swim as its not too deep. Definitely worth a visit.

I've been to Malia three times this year and always come to visit this bar! The staff are always so welcoming and polite, kind and helpful. I've only had the food once and it was spot on. My friends have tried the cocktails and said they were excellent. My personal favourite is the Chocolate Milkshake (with ice cream, cream and chocolate sauce and sprinkles!) .... Got to the stage I'd have them twice a day, they are that amazing! It's in a perfect location, has brilliant music, you can sit in the sun or the shade, free WiFi, and still you can hear the sounds of the sea! Definitely worth a visit, and definitely my favourite place to go! Thank you very much to all of the staff :-)

Visited on an overcast day so not that many people in the place and the beach was quiet too.
Great friendly service, good choice and more than happy to make something not actually on the menu, we enjoyed our visit and the free wi-fi.
The location is exceptional. The place is right on a sandy beach where they have sunbeds so you can sun yourself and pop in for drinks and snacks. We were not impressed with Malia town but this place has to be one of, if not the best place there.
