All staff was warm and friendly..so was the house cat. The cat's daily visit was just as nice.

This was exactly our type of place: exceptionally clean, quiet (except for the coqui frogs singing at night--which we loved), thoughtful and friendly staff, and not too fancy. It was EXCEPTIONALLY clean for an older property and the bathroom was HUGE. We loved the extensive, natural garden out back. The location was super convenient. The neighborhood was residential and real--some might find it too much so, but we love being in a place where we get full, local flavor, and that is what we got at Dolphin Bay.

A throwback in time, spacious and clean with a nice little kitchen. My kids enjoyed the surrounding property looking for frogs and petting the cat, Opi. Yummy banana bread and coffee in the morning.
