The rooms were really clean and tastefully decorated, service was excellent. Nice big pool, wi fi could have been better and a lift would have good for the less able however there are walk in showers in most rooms and... More

An amazing place, beautiful pool to chill out. Amazing selection of food at meal time. The best is the size of the property giving you ample exercise after that meal. Lots of outdoor activity.Great staff and service. A memorable stay.Thank you.

Every member of staff gives 'service with a smile' - always ready to assist. Animators always put on good shows and the evening entertainment very enjoyable. Singers Warren and his wife were fantastic. We keep returning because it is the people working at Dolphin who really make our holiday.

Our room was on the ground floor with patio doors opening on to the secluded gardens. The room was very clean and spacious with a large modern bathroom although the water presure for the shower was a... More

Food was of... More

After a long drive from Yala, we were delighted to find such a great resort. The room was lovely with the best bed we had in Sri Lanka (some can be very hard). It overlooked the large pool, the area around it can get very busy. At the other end of the site is a much quieter pool and bar,... More
