In this hotel is pleasant and great staff, delicous food, comfortable bed and nice room, very good service, drinks, bar service, swimming pool and also the beach. For me this hotel complex is one of the top hotels in Sri Lanka! Near to the airport. Wifi works great.

Super place to enjoy Sea, Sun and sand with tranquility. Food they served was mouthwatering with an awesome variety. All the members at "Dolphin" were very helpful and great hospitality all around..! Look forward to our next visit.

I arrived late and was greeted with a refreshment and kind hospitality. I had made the booking on booking.com with special request for a balcony and seaview room, however this was not transmitted to... More

It is a 30 years old hotel so it will need a lick of paint. But besides that almost everything is very good. From the moment we arrived we felt very welcome and look after. We were given 333 room which appears to be 10 minutes walk from lobby (it's really far) and you are walking many times a day.... More

Spent 2 nights at Club Dolphin with friends. We were a group on a tour of some places in Sri Lanka. Was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and the amenities available in the resort. Great pool, balconies open up to a great view, the buffet spreads cater to different cuisines. A must visit if you plan to have some great... More
