“Lovely hotel just outside Lovina”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

We stayed for three nights at Dolphin Beach. Our room faced the garden not the sea and at first I thought it might be noisy because of the road in front of the hotel. However, that was nog the case. The room itself is very comfortable and quiet (and huge!)

The staff are extremely friendly, best I've experienced so far! They can arrange all kinds of trips, we went on a snorkeling day trip, but they also offer trips to visit the rice fields near the mountains and, obviously, to see the dolphins in the morning.

We also really enjoyed the australian breakfast, with cereal, bacon, eggs, toast, fruit... Certainly enough to keep you going untill lunch :-)

If you are in Lovina and looking for a reasonably priced, clean and friendly hotel, I definitely recommend Dolphin Beach!

After a 3 hour drive we arrived around 3pm to this lovely location. There are only 5 apartments and we had the one we considered the best, No 5 Kura Kura. It was on the ground floor and had doors and full length windows looking straight out onto the lush gardens and small pool and then just 10 steps to the ocean. A most relaxing setting.

Inside it was extremely spacious, nicely decorated and had a beautiful fragrance wafting throughout. With books and DVDs supplied along with many TV and movie channels there were plenty of options to fill the time. There was also a free shuttle up to Lovina Village if you wanted to do some shopping, eating or just to enjoy the peaceful surrounds. Note that you can walk along the beach to the village as well. There are no taxis as such but the staff are happy to take you up there for a small charge if it is outside the regular free shuttle times. You can also book various tours, including the early morning boat ride to see the dolphins (highly recommended) all at very competitive prices. You can swim out to the snorkelling or go out in one of the traditional boats.

On the beach at front there are a small number of people selling sarongs, jewellery and wooden ornaments. Having been to Bali a number of times we are quite happy to chat with them and soon they get to know you So if you don't want to buy and say so pleasantly you can still have some interesting chats. They are very friendly

Attached to the apartments is Darcy's Beachside Restaurant. This is very handy and you can sit at tables undercover, on the lawn area around the pool or on your own verandah or in your apartment. All at very reasonable prices. Breakfast was included and we had the choice of Australian, Continental or Indonesian breakfast. Our apartment had a full kitchen which we did not need to use. Tea and coffee is provided as well as a pay as you go mini bar with drinks, chips and chocolates. All at very good prices.

The staff are very friendly and even made kites for a young family staying there. The apartments and premises are kept in excellent condition. Would definitely recommend.

My husband and I spent a couple of nights here in June 2014. Our room was amazing...huge in fact...really nice decor...good location right on the beach...clean...friendly staff and enjoyed the couple of meals we had there. They have transport to take you into town which is only 5mins down the road. Yes...we would stay there again.

We booked this hotel last minute on our way to Bali from the taxi in Java It is a very nice hotel with a friendly staff. The hotel is located direct at the beach and has a beautiful garden and view on the ocean. There are only 5 rooms and our room was very nice and beautiful decorated.

Spent two nights here as part of a longer Bali trip. Loved our room, could have thrown a party, it was that big! Loved the infinity pool. Ate in the hotel restaurant and the food was excellent and good prices. After seeing a TV show in Australia on Balanese made wine, we chose a white the first night and a red the next. Enjoyable, but have tried better $17.00 $AUD wines. Thought the locally made wine would be cheaper than imported. Enjoyed the dolphin trip. Good to be out on the water early. Could see the island and coastline.

Room Tip: The doors of room one opened up to the garden and the beach beyond.

Spent two nights here as part of a longer Bali trip. This was definitely a highlight. A fantastic room in a small complex and looked after by a wonderful staff. Just a few minutes by "tuk tuk" to downtown Lovina or Darcy's restaurant on site. Enjoyed every minute here, and will definitely be heading back again.

Room Tip: Penthouses are upstairs with private balconies and ocean views.

First visit was 2 1/2 yrs ago for 2 nites, and said next time to Bali we will stay longer, well we are home now from an amazing 10 day stay. Just to get away from the hustle and bustle of Kuta is great, and DBA in Lovina was the best holiday ever. The staff are amazing and so friendly, the food...beaky, lunch and dinner was more than adequate in size and so cheap, as was the drinks, including bottles of wine. We had Penthouse #2, so big, comfortable and with everything you need. Nothing was a bother to the staff, just ask and you got it. Big thanks go to David and Moira, Sussee, Mega and Putu ( driver) and of course (Louie, "go Liverpool"). Big thanxs to all, see you again real soon. Regards Suzie and John, from Tasmania
