Dolphin Cove Inn has simply the best restaurant we visited this year. The view of Manzanillo Bay is sweeping and magnificent. The service is fast and it is obvious that they care. The food is fresh and flavorful and is elegantly prepared and presented. The Tampiquena steak is tender and perfectly grilled. The shrimp fajitas are another standout with grilled... More

The view was absolutely beautiful. However the rooms were very disappointing . The beds were like sleeping on a slab of concrete. I didn't sleep for two nights. My kids were in the second bedroom and were killing ants , they didn't sleep very well either. We told the man at the reception desk about the ants and they sprayed... More

The ocean views at Dolphin Cove inn are spectacular. The views are stunning facing either Manzanillo bay or facing Las Hadas penninsula. We stayed at Dolphin Cove inn Dec 11-16 and it was a great place to stay and not very busy. Dolphin Cove inn is very peacefull and although we could hear a little noise coming from neighbouring hotels... More

I usually stay at major chains so my review on the cleanliness for this 'beach' hotel won't be too picky. Generally clean. Towels and linen were clean. AC works. View was very nice The only reason I couldn't rate it higher is because when I checked in at 6pm on a Thursday the restaurant was closed. The bar was closed.... More

Very clean rooms. Staff is very friendly, food is good. Beach is fantastic. Cabs are very cheap and reliable with very friendly drivers that will let you know the best places to eat and drink. Had no problems at all.

We booked a unit with a king bed for 3 nights. The room was clean, the paintwork in the bathroom is looking a little worst for wear. I asked for 2 additional pillows and they were brought to the room. The bed is very comfortable. There was no hot water when we arrived and this has been fixed! Thank you!... More

I'm not sure how many years, we have been going to the Dolphin Cove (maybe 8 or 9) but we are never disappointed with our stay at this facility mostly because of the STAFF and the SERVICE that they provide.

Let me preface this with a note: My wife and I have made 30 winter trips to Mexico over 35 years. We have essentially covered the west coast and some of central Mexico. We booked late this year and could not get into our normal spots in Manzanillo. So I booked a month at the Dolphin Cove Inn. We had... More

A gem of a place - sparkling white with lush flowers and palm trees and an abundance of bougainvilleas. The rooms are beautiful and the service is excellent. The small palapa restaurant attached to the hotel serves delicious food and their breakfasts are awesome. Try their blackberry jam and Margaritas. I love this place and can't wait to visit again....
