Dolphin Beach Resort
- What's Included
This hotel is definitely not luxury but middle-of-the-road accommodations. However: there are many things that make this place a great place for a getaway. The pool is warm and large. The property is right ON the beach. Located across from Publix and CVS make it easy to grab provisions for your room. Good dining options nearby. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.
Plan to be very tired you sleep through the night. The only thing that was a problem during our stay was that the hotel AC kept turning on and off, even when changing the settings to stay on. It was cold/got the whole time - night. Nice bar opening out to the beach. We also had breakfast there and it was great. Hope to visit again soon and the AC situation is better.
Recently spent another Spring Break in St. Pete Beach at the Dolphin Beach Resort and had a very nice stay. I was glad to see they have done some renovations to the rooms. We had an ocean front room on the 3rd floor and really enjoyed the room and the view. The balcony is small but large enough for 2 to 4 people to enjoy the view and their favorite beverage. They have upgraded the counter tops and cabinets in the room and bathroom and installed new tile in the entry way and bathroom. It all looks very nice. I'm not wild about the carpet color / pattern but it looked new as well. The color scheme in the room was still mostly blue and orange (not my favorite) but the same as before.The Flippers Beach bar was nice as always and Ken (one of the bartenders) is always enjoyable and does a good job as did the other bartenders. The Bocca Sands restaurant was good for breakfast the two days we ate there. There are just so many restaurants in the area that we didn't eat at the resort. The beach is huge and the pool area is nice. The weather was a bit windy for most of trip and it was blowing sand on the beach so we didn't get as much beach time as we would have liked.The resort is an old classic "beach hotel" and it shows it's age some, but they keep it very clean and the owners are investing back into the property with room renovations. So we will return next year if our plans allow. I hope we are able to get a 1st floor ocean front room that opens out onto the beach next year. We have requested one of those for the last two years, but we haven't gotten one. Maybe we can learn the secret next year.
Nice resort... clean rooms with great amenities! The beach was gorgeous... staff was all very nice and helpful. It was very quiet... we didn't eat there but there was a nice eating area. We took advantage of the bar outside and the drinks were pretty good... the pool was fantastic. Would go again!
Our room was a double/standard and we thought we were getting a deluxe /double, the pictures that cancelon showed on their website were of beachfront and poolside veiws. When we got there our room was on the 1st floor in the back corner with no veiw. We were very disappointed with our booking but we love the hotel and have gone there since 2008.
