I stayed at Dolphins in early April, with my husband and parents. We did not have a reservation, but the resort staff could not have been more accommodating. They showed us two cabins to choose from. We stayed in cabin 7, and were impressed with how spotlessly clean it was. Comfortable beds, lots of wood for the fire, excellent water... More

Great smaller resort on the beach, large rustic cabins, all with hotubs surrounded by trees and nature. Fantastic garden settings,great for weddings. Has amble size lodge with river rock fireplace, high ceilings all natural wood facing ocean with magnificent view. Has restaurant that serves excellent meals at reasonable cost, it is well know in area and always busy,good reputation.

Quaint property with rustic cabins (log walls, knotty pine ceilings, wood grained flooring). Place was spotless and well equipped. We had cabin seven which had four separate rooms with a gaggle of beds. The bedding was great as were the beds. Place had three bathrooms. Great price for what we got as it included a breakfast at the Anglers restaurant.... More

We have stayed at the Dolphins on many occasions and can't say enough about this little piece of heaven. Historic converted sport fishing lodges have all the creature comforts you can ask for. Lovely park like grounds with stunning oceanfront views of Quadra Island and Straits of Georgia. Fine dining will bewitch your culinary senses. Pets are more then welcome.... More

Excellent time! It has been a few years since we stayed here and went with the 2 nights, 2 breakfasts and 1 dinner. Food was awesome, no complaints. We stayed in the beach front cabin. Very private, great hot tub and view. We will definitely be back.

So impressed with the staff at this resort on the front desk, housekeeping and in the restaurant. Each time we were met by a staff member, they asked if everything was fine and then bent over backwards to immediately remedy any of the little concerns we had. The accomdation is cozy and well equipped, the scenery is breathtaking and the... More

This us the third time that I have stayed at the resort in the last two years! It is such a charming spot tucked away in the pines adjacent to the passage!

Stayed for hubby's birthday and decided to take him on a surprise getaway. Stumbled across this resort on Lind and thought it would be a quaint romantic alternate to a fancy resort.
