“Welcoming & Very Clean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2009

Want to say thank you very much to Iris, Dad & Soney (the dog). Had a very lovely time, short 4 minute walk to the main part of 'The Gap' and beach. If looking for a place to just sleep & shower you need to look no further. I had a really, really lovely time see you soon Barbados

Great value is an understatement here. A short walk to one of the most spectacular Caribbean beaches is simply a bonus! Iris, single Swiss mother of two well-mannered, congenial children, gave us much more than we had expected. Spotlessly clean rooms, a well-organized kitchen easily shared with some very nice folks from around the globe, comfortable beds and linens, hot showers, no charge for wi-fi, multi-channel TV and a willingness to share her vast knowledge of the island. Seventeen days of heaven, as far as we're concerned. Hate to leave, and can't wait to come back. A "don't miss"!

I have returned from another visit from the Dolphin and as always found the accommodation marvelous. I stayed in the guest house this time to save some money and it has all been redecorated. The bedrooms are lovely with your own bathroom. You share the kitchen and large dining/sitting room and have all the facilities you need including large fridge and cooker. TV with satelite and a telephone which you can use to make local calls for free. It is idealy situated on the south coast five minutes away from Dover beach and 15 minutes away from my favourite beach "sandy beach" at worthing. Yopu are five minytes away from buses to either Bridgetown, Speightstown or Oistins. In the evening it is a short walk to the gap where the main nightlife on the island is situated. Iris the owner is a lovely person who will help make your stay a pleasurable one.

I stayed in the guest house there are 4 rooms the fridge and cupboard shelves are numbered 1-4 for each guess but who is to say that another guess won't use my stuff or do something foolish with it. There is only one television suppose I want to watch the news and another guess want to watch a movie? The air conditioning is only in the bedrooms and that you have to pay an extra 5bucks a day, the other parts of the house is like a hot-pot. Iris the owner is heard in the house early on mornings while you are in your room. What is she doing? The front door is like a Supermarket door. She lives upstairs the guess house so I think she may have a problem with kids. She may not like kids. Friends visiting is restricted after certain hours. The area is to dark. Not even a blanket is provided. Internet won't work.

I stayed in the Dolphin apartments almost 3 weeks and it was amazing. The location is really good: close to Dover beach (about 150 mt), to supermarket, St Lawrence Gap, restaurants and nightlife.
I stayed in an apartment, not in the guesthouse. They look like single small wooden cottages; inside you have an open space area with a small kitchen (with electric stoves, micro wave, toaster, refrigerator and everything you can need to cook a good meal). Then we had a double bed and also another extra bed. Outside there's a small wooden veranda where you can have your meals and can spread out the washing. There's a small but comfortable bathroom (just a remark for italian people: no bidet in the toilet as it's very common when we are abroad)
Of course it does not have the features and the look of a luxury 5 stars resort but really there's nothing to complain about it. The environment is very pleasant, familiar and clean. Mrs Iris is really very nice and helpful. I would definetly stay there again and I hope I will.

I stayed in the guest house. It is a good location as it is walking distance to Dover Beach and the Gap. I travelled alone but a friend joined me after a day. I only have one warning on staying at the Dolphin Inn, as a woman travelling alone walking at night is VERY dark and secluded. There are 2 roads you can take down to the beach/Gap. One road passes by a cricket field and the other road is residential but there was a dark construction site on one side and a grassy field/empty lot on the other. I did do the walk a couple times but thought the whole time that this was not the safest thing to do. If you take a cab at night (cheap) or if you plan on walking in a group than the location is perfect and it is great for the price!

I stayed in a large room with 2 single beds (there was actually a third less comfortable one too). If you had three people in there it would be SO cheap! The room had a bathroom 'stall' (toilet, sink, shower enclosed by 6 ft walls but not attached to the ceiling, and a curtain door).

If you have a VERY small budget it is perfect! You have everything you need and being close to the beach and the Gap can also cut down on transportation costs.

We stayed for a week and a half and we were very happy with the accomodations. The apt was large, clean, quiet and close to so much we couldn't have asked for more. The beach is a 5 minute walk, as are the supermarket, restaurants, car rental place and bus stop. The owner Iris, is a very easygoing, friendly person. We would most definetly stay at the Blue Dolphin apts again without hesitation.
