It was my first time traveling to Greece in June 2012 with my family and we really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. We were given a room with a balcony from which we could see the Mediterranean Sea. The room was cleaned every day - towels and sheets were changed daily. The restaurant served breakfast, lunch and dinner and... More

Reviewed July 27/07/13 What a wonderful experience and a fabulous place. Wonderful staff who have a passion for what they do and really want you to enjoy your stay, which we certainly did. The room was fantastic and the building/hotel was beautifully. Location was great, 5 minutes walk from the beach and shops on the next street. You can walk... More

Nothing much. Pretty basic hotel, in need of a refurbishment. At least it was clean. Room size is ok. I would not go back. Just a place in the sun...

Hotel room basic, bed the most uncomfortable that I have (attempted to) sleep in. Food very limitted and not much choice. Bar area nice and lobby ok. Family focused and good budget hotel for families on low budget. Drinks expensive. No UK TV (not that you would want to stay in room). Nice view of oil refinery, sea and mountains.... More

Well ,well... after reading on site's hotel, we thought that Dolphin Bay can be a good place to spend 7 beautiful days. Unfortunatelly, we had bad surprises from the beginning, surprises that we had to get used to. 1. The hotel is only 3 ***. The rooms are very small, that's why we accepted the hotel's offer that to replace... More

After reading previous reviews I became very sceptical about this hotel and already thought what I could I do to change it, but im glad that I didnt, because the location of the hotel was just about 7 minute drive from the Heraklion airport and we got into the rooms as soon as we arrived. No waiting at the reception.... More

Crete was the last stop on our Greek adventure and our package deal included this hotel. I was nervous to stay here because of the reviews, but thought most of the bad ones were quite outdated and would see how it goes. Upon arrival, it is clear to see that the place is very outdated and very basic. The room... More

Ok, previous comments complained, that hotel is no way 4 star. Actually i think it is, because of its service. I don't know any 3* hotel, which offers such services like you can get in doplhin bay - self-control air condition, animation service, sports, pool and environment. Everything about this hotel would be perfect, instead of how rooms looks like.... More
