Wow what a fabulous holiday. We booked this for our honeymoon, both being well travelled but neither of us having been to Sri Lanka before we took a bit of a chance. If you want the ultimate in relaxation with exceptional service, from the most genial staff ever then don't hesitate. The sea is turbulent but with a fun or... More

This hotel is absolutely outstanding. It is right on the beach with two swimming pools. One very very large for all sorts of fun and one quite pool for peace and quite. The staff are fantastic and very helpful. I cannot recommend this place enough. In short, we will be back ........ regularly.

Only downside was during the departure, where we requested for a slightly late checkout the request was refused even though we knew the hotel had an occupancy of only 45%. Since our package included lunch... More

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.

Club Hotel Dolphin is situated beautifully within feet of the Indian Ocean. The design is open plan and you feel instantly relaxed when you get here. 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
