Good service and really nice hotel with great views of the bay. Since it is located on a hill there are a lot of steps, but it gives you a nice workout after breakfast, LOL! The staff was really nice, though the hotel guide/booklet inside the room seemed to be outdated so I would recommend doing your research of what... More

We spent seven nights here and we would definitely return to Dolphin Cove. Nice, clean and operated under good management. It is centrally located in an upscale community right next to Las Hadas and Karmina Barcelo. Short distance to playa la Audiencia (we walked) which is one of the points of interest in Manzanillo and a convenient store "Kiosco" well... More

We are never disappointed when we visit Dolphin Cove Inn! Great food and service with a smile. There are many things to do in the area, and we also enjoy doing nothing at all by the pool or on the beach! Bougainvillea covered terraces offer lovely views of the sunset. Can't wait to go back!

I had one of the most restful, stress free and fantastic vacations that I have ever had. My sister and I stayed for 16 idyllic days at the beautiful Dolphin Cove. Our room had such an amazing view of flowers (bougainvillea's in the richest of red colors), sailboats, the bay and of course the sparkling ocean beyond. Quite a romantic... More
