Whent there for lunch after reading all the nice reviews. The place is amazing, beautiful setting - must be a nice place to stay. We had a vegatable lasagna - wonderful. And then we had "todays lunch" wich is priced at 450 pesos - very fair for a starter (salad - OK), a main (fish in sweet/sour - VERY bad)... More

Well…. as a restaurant even within a 5 star resort we don’t know what a guest ate before coming to Dolphin House, we don’t know what kind of foods they “secretly” brought in as a “day guest” but we know that none of our guest got sick that day eating the same dish. Going true the reviews on this same... More

We stayed in this resort for 6 nights, and It was lovely. Amazing for snorkelling and lots to see. It is also great as there is a walk way built into the reef so you don't damage the corals. This is a very comfortable place to stay and relax. The only this for us which was not great was the... More

I've been at Dolphin House with my wife and a group of friends. One of the best vacation I had in the last 5 years. The place is really a little paradise, quiet, and clean. Friendly staff full of care and smiles for the whole group. A great diving center. Peter, the chief coordinator and all the boys and girls... More

It was my 3rd overnight stay and the experience keeps on getting better.The snorkeling area is super awesome for someone like me who can't dive. The place was so relaxing with great food and of course pretty and friendly staff. Stay Great Dolphin House.

Stayed at Dolphin House from 07/29/2014 through 08/03/2014 with my two kids. If you are Asian, do not stay at Dolphin House. If you are an underwater photographer, do not stay at Dolphin House. If you want to see whale sharks in Oslob, prepare to pack your stuff because you are not welcome at Dolphin House. Rudy, the owner, came... More

Unfortunately we only stayed there for one night as I would have really enjoyed experiencing more of the things they offer. The snorkeling was fantastic - very few (no other) people and a very interesting and diverse reef with many fish and types of coral. The dinner was excellent and there is a good selection of wine. Breakfast was well... More
