Dar Luuvybunny, Thank you for your review. Is was nice to meet you. The free continental breakfast with coldcuts, vehetables,eggs various spreads and pastry is a little too European, so we are adding some things, but you can buy a full american break fast for $7.95. I am glad you enjoyed your room. We were done remodelling them this January.... More

Dear Miriam, I am sorry to hear that you felt the entertainment at the Tiki, was too loud. We have instituted a cut of at 11 pm(23.00), to accommodate guests who wish to go to bed early on Saturday night. How ever we do also wish to accommodate all the guests who enjoy the live entertainment. The new cut off... More

I stayed March 14 - 22 That they STILL get an average was due to the fact that the rooms BREATHE. Good place to relax. By the way - this is not a place for kids - there is a lot of bar and beer drinking, which is ok for me - but not for families with young kids. Dolphin... More

Dear Donald, Thank you for your advise. When it comes to beds, it is hard to please everybody, people with sensitive backs would prefer them to be harder, and some like yourself would prefer softer. We hear both. As far as breakfast goes, we are about to change it up a little. We only say that we offer a Continental... More

I didn't have much time to plan for a hotel in Cape Coral but was more than pleasantly surprised with Dolphin Key. The room was large and well maintained. The personnel were all very friendly. I particularly liked the Tiki bar being onsite, which they claim is the largest in the country. The food was good and there was live... More

This was a great find for us. The location was good to get to Sanibel, Ft Myers, and area restaurants. The rooms are spacious and clean, no carpet, all tile. We were fortunate enough to have an inside room overlooking the pool and Tiki Bar. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony for our morning coffee. All the employees were very... More

Very nice pool area with pretty landscaping. Rooms were clean and comfortable and good sized. Location was great. We walked to Brew Babies for jazz and dinner. There is a tiki bar on site that it was good sized and had good music. We would return.

Really wanted to let people know what a nice resort this is! Don't judge by the outside which looks a little 'retro'. This place has been completely renovated and the rooms were so clean and pretty. Nice clean tile floors and comfortable beds and the shower... wow! New 'rainfall' showerhead and plenty of water pressure made it lovely! The pool... More

Just got home from 3 night stay at Dolphin Key and couldn't wait to leave a review. The desk staff was always very helpful answering questions, giving directions, and recommending places to eat or visit. The location was ideal for traveling to "touristy" spots, but at the end of a busy day enjoyed returning to peacefulness of this hotel. Plenty... More
