Very nice location and surrounding. Plenty of space to play. Amazing pool with a big space. Very nice for the kids. Fantastic beach. The staff was very friendly and energetic. The buffet spread was great.

The travel agent said we might get a couple of showers but they clear quick and its much more Sun. Is this the case? Dont mind a few showers here... More

The 5-day stay at the Dolphin for four of us was the perfect culmination to a 2-week trip to and around Sri Lanka. The hotel complex is great as a place to relax, and the all-inclusive package is high-quality and very good value for money. We had a cabana with partial sea view - wonderful! comfortable beds, electric insect repellent,... More

Our chalet was gorgeous, the food was very good and very varied, and the staff, all of them, from reception, bar, restaurant to housekeeping, were... More

If you look for a hotel close to airport for the first days of your vacation to get accustomed to the climate, get over your stress and the jetlag, get used to Sri Lanka food – look no further – this is perfect for that. The hotel is situated on the beach – however it was very windy when we... More

We have just recently returned from our second time at this hotel. It was even better than the first. Check in was simple and were shown to our villa. Having taken a look at it we asked if we could have one closer to the quiet pool, and within half an hour, we were in one just by the bar... More

This is great hotel and provides excellent value for money. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The food is excellent with great variety of Sri Lankan, Western and multi cultural food. The buffet system works well and the waiting staff are efficient. Both pools are immaculately clean, and the pool towels can be changed frequently. We did trips via... More

We stayed in the hotel for two weeks, a double bed room with sea / pool view, all inclusive. The area of the hotel is big, there is always enough room for everyone, always a sun lounger in the shadow or sun when ever you go to the pool etc. The food was more than sufficient, always big choice, clean,...

We ended our 19 day tour of Sri Lanka at Club Hotel Dolphin and it was the perfect end to a perfect holiday! Our sea view villa was amazing, clean and homely. The views of the sunset over the sea was beautiful. Hotel was always nice and clean and all the staff was friendly!!

This was our first trip to Sri Lanka and we loved the hotel and staff as they ensured that we had a stay to remember. Will book again in the near future. The food was good and the pool areas were very clean and well maintained.
