Dolphin Resort

Posted 28-Jun-2017
Pros: Small...not over populated
Location: Everything in walking distance
It was perfect for my family. Right on the beach.....the pool was large and well maintained. The Tiki bar had live music. The sunsets were breath taking.

Nice pool, on the beach, food nearby

Posted 13-May-2017
Pros: Location, pool, food, cleanliness
Cons: My only complaint about the room is that the pillows were too puffy for us to use.
Location: Across the street is Publix, CVS, Dollar Tree, Chick-Fil-A and Italian restaurant and more. Within walking distance of Crabby Bills seafood restauran
This hotel is a bit dated but our room had been renovated since the previous year. It was clean and everything worked well. The pool is nice! And you're right on the beach! The indoor and outdoor restaurants have good food. I asked for a lower level room near the pool so my elderly mom didn't have to do a lot of walking. Across the street is Publix, CVS, Dollar Tree, Chick-Fil-A and Italian restaurant and more. Within walking distance of Crabby Bills seafood restaurant. I've stayed there twice and will go back. 30 minute drive from St. Pete International Airport.

Pleasant hotel in a convenient location

Posted 25-Apr-2017
A clean, "homey" hotel with basic amenities. The hotel is located across from a shopping center which has a grocery store (Publix), CVS and a Dollar Store. This was VERY convenient because I didn't have a personal means of transportation. The hotel's pool area was very clean and had ample seating. The hotel's free Wi-Fi was AWFUL. Plan on using a lot of your cellular data. The Dolphin advertises itself as a "hotel and conference center" which is definitely false advertising considering the lack of internet connection.

Even though I had a first floor room by the pool, it was still quiet. All the staff were friendly and helpful😍🌴

satisfactory hotel on the beach. food acceptable.

Posted 30-Mar-2017
Pros: location,right on the beach, access to a restaurant with room service and a beach bar
Cons: Cleanliness, customer service, trash removal
Location: great location with lots to do within walking distance
Hotel badly needs updates - very dated and not very clean. Some staff nice and friendly and some very rude. The trash outside near the dumpsters looked like it hadn't been emptied for more than a week and had a very strong odor. Pool was nice and clean. Liked having a beach bar, but was very difficult to get served unless you were young and wearing a bikini. Felt like the price was high for what you get in return. .

Nice hotel right on the beach. Excellent location

Posted 29-Mar-2017
Pros: Location, staff, room, pool.
Cons: Wi fi signal was not strong. Had difficulty using the internet from our room.
Location: Beach is beautiful. Downtown St. Pete nearby. Easy walk to Don Cesar where a "spa" day only costs $30 @ the Spa Oceana. Charlotte = best stylist!
Friendly staff, spacious & clean room. Mostly quiet, great beds. Pool was well maintained. Direct access to beach.

It was okay except a black racer (snake) almost hit me in the head while I was laying by the pool. I told the front desk, who said they would get someone to remove the snake, but I never saw anyone come to take care of the situation. Decided not to sit by the pool the rest of my stay.
