The apartments are great with fantastic ocean view. Comfortable bedrooms and spacy living room with foldable sofa bed! All facilities are good. The only issue is the wifi signal in the side apartment is very weak.

Dolphin Apartments are well located, close to shops and restaurants with a very short walk to the beach. Well appointed with comfortable facilities. On site managers were very helpful and happy to assist. Really good.

Apartment was modern inside and out, very comfortable, with beautiful ocean views. Conveniently located, and only a short stroll to beach, cafes, supermarket and more. Managers Emily and Michael were accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. We very much look forward to staying again!

Great location with an unbelievable view over the bay. Easy walk into town or straight across the road to the beach. Mick and Emily were great hosts who were always willing to help. Our two grown up children had a ball and had the privacy of there own room.
