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. The three people in the office who deserve a big bouquet for making our vacation great would be Lorene, Cynthia... More

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....

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!
