The decor is amazing especially in the luxury tents, which really are luxurious, the whole resort is stylish and well thought out. The staff, especially Dean the host, make your stay relaxing and effortless. We spent a week relaxing by the pool and eating the most superb fresh food. Will definitely be going back.

I was staying in Dolphin Beach Resort with a friend for about 5 nights and we had an amazing time. The accommodation are acutally tents, but these tents are realy luxury tents with lots of space and your own terrace and everything is extremely clean as they clean your "room" every day (by the way the open bathroom is incredible)....

We chose to stay at Dolphin Beach resort so that we could enjoy both kitesurfing and luxurious accommodation at the same location. The difference between this resort and others we've stay at was the limitless attention given to us by the Manager Dean. Every request we had he made happen, every extra touch-he had already thought of. The rooms are... More

The "Glamping" phenomenon has just had it bar raised a little higher by this beautiful resort. Romantic tents imported from Rajasthan in India create a wonderfully cosy atmosphere for you to come to rest. I am definitely not a camping enthusiast but my head has certainly been turned by this place. I didn't realize camping could be so enjoyable! Dean,... More

The place is very original. Every room is a detached "hut"so privacy is one of its must. Inside is like a arab tend ; the decoration is refined and elegant but simply at the same time. The bath is a dream . Clean in every moment no only the room but the whole area. There is a nice chill out... More

Three nights here after easy transfer from airport. We loved our stylish family tent. Dean have us a wonderful welcome and all the staff were helpful; food was fresh. Once you get used to the wind turbines next door we could think of a better place to start our SL holiday.
