This was my third time staying at this hotel. Honestly I could never have been more happy when I finally arrived! I’m am a 17 year old boy who has traveled a lot to many places such as most islands in the Caribbean, and by far Sri Lanka is my most favorite destination. Once on arrival to the hotel, we... More

WOW..... After meticulous research and long periods of soul searching, we decided to opt for Sri Lanka. We were not to be disappointed! From the arrival at Columbo Airport, a swift 30 min taxi transfer delivered us (couple plus 12yr old son) to the Club Hotel Dolphin. We were greeted in traditional style by friendly and smiling staff, dressed in... More

We were only in Sri Lanka for three nights so had planned a careful itinerary to make the best of our time there, staying at various hotels on our travels exploring this beautiful country. As there were three of us travelling, one aged 13 we had carefully selected hotels that could accommodate us in one room. After a wonderful couple... More

We travelled to Sri Lanka and stayed at the Club Hotel Dolphin in early February 2014. After many satisfying trips to the Maldives, we thought we would try somewhere different. We booked our holiday with 'Virgin' after a long arduous cramped flight, we arrived at the hotel to be told that our Beach Villa that we had booked was unavailable... More

As we were on honeymoon we got upgraded rooms to a sea view villa so we were right on the beach. The staff were very friendly and helpful at all times and the... More

I stayed at the Club Hotel Dolphin in February 2014 with my two sons aged 17 and 15. It met our requirements absolutely perfectly and I would recommend it. I wish we could have stayed longer than1 week. Good points: Our garden room was about 20m from a deserted tropical beach. Every day we swam in the warm Indian Ocean... More

My wife and I have recently returned from Club Hotel Dolphin in Sri Lanka after spending 8 nights in an extraordinary resort on an all-inclusive package. The resort was fabulous, having the largest swimming pool in SL and most probably the largest outdoor pool bar. Our room was a superior sea view that had a 7 foot wide bed and... More

Stayed here for 12 nights in March. The hotel is really lovely 2 very large pool areas, both next to beach. One with activities and the other one very quiet and peaceful. No problem getting sun beds at either. Each has its own snack bar for lunch or you can eat in the main restaurant. Food was varied and to... More
