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

We stayed at the Dolphin Cove Inn twice and both times we had a cozy and fabulous visit. The views are breathtaking and the staff is so friendly!

This is our fourth visit to the Dolphin Cove Inn and we plan on coming back as often as possible in the future. The rooms are spacious, with colorful wall hangings and furniture.

We fully enjoyed our four week stay at the Dolphin Cove Inn. The weather was fabulous, the apartment spacious and impeccably clean, the grounds were very well taken care of and the view from the balcony was spectacular. The staff was pleasant and helpful when needed. On the whole it was a good value vacation. There were two minor negatives,... More

My girlfriend and I had a great time at Dolphin Cove Inn. Breakfast was included in our reservations. The bus #8 that goes to around town was very helpful to go back and forth from the hotel. All the staff were very helpful. The only thing I did not like was that the internet connection was slow.

This hotel has a great location, next door to the famous Las Hadas resort. The rooms are in need of a little updating but are functional. If you have problems climbing stairs, this is not the place for you. The two pools are comfortable for kids and adults. The breakfast that was included in our rate was more than adequate,... More
