Great staff great view private beach.... try the tamarindo margaritas from the restaurant there in the hotel. The pool was clean very quiet not to noisy. I did see some small lizard inside but they were removed as soon as we called. The food was delicious had aguachilles and the breakfast very healthy exotic fruit and french toast .The campechana...

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....

Beautiful place, great food, friendly people. Just a joy to enjoy authentic Mexico from. Went in the off season, so we were catered too extensively. The ceviche and blackberry Margaritas in the restaurant are excellent. Would definitely recommend Dolphin Cove to friends.

All in all this hotel was awesome, absolutely amazing views and a good price for a 3 bedroom apartment. The problem is that $200 (USD) went missing from one of our suitcases when the maid was cleaning the room. We decided to goto the pool while she was there, and that was a mistake. We reported it to the reception... More

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 The staff was really nice, though the hotel guide/booklet inside the room seemed to be outdated so I would recommend doing your research of what...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

This is our 8th time to Dolphin Cove Inn and it wont be our last. We just keep going back time and time again. I guess what we like about this hotel is that we land and just start "living our life" and the bonus is the weather is always great - WARM WARM WARM. This is a Mexican boutique... 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!
