Amazing Resort Right besides the beach . Just take top end category rooms only . Has ample space to roam around and you can sit and party along with your friends in the open area provided . Would book in advance due to non availability

To get to Havelock is a tiring journey, especially is you're travelling on the Govt. Ferry, however, as soon as you enter Dolphin Resorts, the view is just "soothingly mind blowing". I had booked a semi-deluxe sea facing cottage, almost 2 months in advance and for the Govt. rates they offer, its actually worth twice the price. The semi-deluxe cottage... More

Pathetic attitude. Room not clean once you reach and you have to wait for two to three hours to get into the room. No water available and they do not display this information at reception. No room service. If god forbid AC not functioning then god help you as they do not accommodate you in any other room, and if... More

Amazing location. The sunrise at their beach was simply wondrous. Book in advance to get a sea facing deluxe room. Very affordable. The food is good by andaman standards. All that said, the service is slow and that's just something you'd have to put up with, because it is government run.

I was trying to book the Super deluxe room for last several mails months through emails but these idiots only gave me a semi-deluxe room without any justification. Even then I was quite happy with whatever I got. I stayed in room... More

I stayed in Dolphin Resorts for three nights on a family trip with my wife and child. And I was happy about my choice! Dolphin Resorts has the best location on Havelock island. You are as good as on the Vijayanagar beach with high tide waves actually reaching just a few metres from your cottage fronts depositing shells and coral... More

Situated in Vijaya Nagar Beach. Dolphin Resort has its private beach. The beach is full of corals. So while taking bath in sea one need to be very careful. While booking I asked for VIP Cottage. Its Very hard to get a deluxe room even. There is a Restaurant. Decent food with a reasonable price. Only Buffet available. As this... More

We had such a good time in Dolphin resort! Our cottage was spacious and very comfortable. The sunrise from the beach - one minute walk away was a very special moment for us. We hired a motorbike from the people on the lane to the hotel who were so helpful and it was very convenient and 400 rupees a day.... More
