It's a small Boutique hotel I agree and the same way it is beautiful. It has a small pool with a beautiful statue of a dolphin. Service is up to the mark. My kids enjoyed the place and We loved It. What a place. We are going to come back.

I arrived at the Dolphin Suites late in the evening, tired from a long flight, so I really didn't get a chance to view what turned out to be a beautiful hotel once daylight arrived. Upon checking in all went smooth and the manager/clerk went the extra mile to assure I received a power converter for U.S. electrical current. I'm... More

Dolphin is a quiet hotel located in a quiet area. Service and food are excellent. There is a good Health Club with sauna and small but very well maintained swimming pool. Staff is well trained and customer focused. Food is excellent, including Indian dishes.

This hotel is set around a small swimming pool with garden. Rooms are clean (although small) and have well-functioning A/C, DSTV, wi-fi and hot water service. The food at the restaurant is very good. The location is ok as the hotel is in a quiet residential area on the top of a hill - not in the city centre though.
