“What a pool!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

We stopped at the hotel because we had seen it listed in one of our travel books--it was clean, bright and very affordable--the pool was big, clean and warm! The owner has been pumping cash back into the place with solar heating, upgrading windows and beautiful landscaping. The rooms are very Mexican-no phone, TV or AC--but it did have ceiling fans, the bed was great, nice warm blankets avialable if needed and fresh drinking water just down the hall.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top two floors have been remodeled and have great views.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

On one of the side streets, so its a little quieter. The rooms are VERY basic. No Phone or TV. No A/C. The bed was kind of hard, and the pillows were worn and stained. Very quiet though. The owners (who livbe there with their family) are very nice. I paid about $550 pesos a night. a little under $53 USD. There are better places in Barra

Room Tip: They all face the street, 3 floors, if you dont like stairs, ask for PLANTO BAJA. (1st floor)

A friendly hotel with a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. Good location. Well cared for, with helpful and friendly staff (English speaking). It's also good to see a hotel taking steps to minimize its footprint. A relaxing stay.

A sweet little Mexican Hotel that is well maintained with garden & pool. Friendly staff, owners. Great location in charming fishing village. No TV or A/C. Go with the ceiling fan!

My husband and I shared one of the apartments with out 2 good friends for 11 days. This was our second visit to the Delphin and as before we were very happy and comfortable there. The family and staff are friendly, helpful and always ready to share information. Barra de Navidad is a lovely little town and the Delphin is perfectly suited for enjoying one's time. Clean and comfortable with a basic but very useable kitchen. The balconies are wonderful for relaxing and the pool is a complete treat - warm and big enough to do laps, is one is so inclined. We will return.

Room Tip: The end of the gallery on the upper floors offer the best views as do the balconies of the 2 apartme...

This our second time in Hotel Delfin in about a couple of years. Nice clean rooms, friendly staff, great central location and very reasonable prices. We couldn't have asked for more. Stefan and his mom were so helpful and charming, we hated to leave.

Room Tip: Lots of stairs

I have just returned from 3 weeks in Barra at the Hotel Delphin. I had reserved a refrigerator for my stay so was able to keep fruits etc on hand. Hosts, Stefan and Claudia, are very helpful with information about day trips, places to see in town, where to shop etc. The view, pool, individual rooms. and rooftop terrace are clean and appealing. At first, I wasn't sure if I would like the balcony running the length of the building but found it an excellent way of meeting the neighbours in the other rooms. There is a gym on the premises but the humidity didn't encourage use, at least not for me. As there is no elevator the walk up 3 flights of stairs several times a day provided a good workout. The only drawback was the restaurant - most found it not to be good value for the money.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with pool and lagoon views on the 3rd or 4th floor.
