We had a 3 day stay in this property during the month of June 2015 and found out that this property is most suitable for foreign nationals to visit only during the season which starts from November and lasts until April next year. Reason being the south west monsoons make a drastic change of the beach and that's why it's... More

Great place to be.. Enjoyed every bit of it..loved the variety of food in all 3 meals..Loved the Quiet pool rather than main bcoz of noise.. The A/C in the room could have had more cool (powerful)... Plenty of walking space around the hotel too....

I stayed here with my mum in January 2015 for 2 weeks, staying on an all inclusive basis through Thomas Cook Signature. We booked late in December, and though we paid more than we would have liked, this felt worth it as my mum had been unwell for some time and we were looking for a really relaxing break. The... More

We had the opportunity to try out club dolphin hotel. This is an old hotel that has gone through some renovations. They also have one of the biggest swimming pools in the country. Although the room was clean and the linen was clean we noticed a few things that was way below expectation for a hotel of this nature. 1.... More

The hotels staff are so kind and friendly. The rooms we stayed in were the superior rooms and junior suites. We had an amazing relaxed holiday. The... More

Beach is not recommended at this time, as the sea is very rough. we got a very good offer from the hotel and it... More

Our sixth stay. We love the location, the facilities this hotel offers. Nothing is ever too much trouble. The room was spacious comfortable and spotless. There is always a good choice of food at the buffet and if you cannot find something you like the chef will always oblige. It is easy to relax but the animation team provide a... More
