We stayed here 9 - 23 June and would not return. We have stayed in Calis 5 times before and would happily return to our previous hotels, Club E, Oykun, Mutlu (twice) and Gunes.
All others but the Gunes were 3 star with prices to match. But after having stayed at the Gunes last year we were very impressed with this 2 star so thought we would try the Dolphin. The difference between the two is amazing. But this year the Gunes were only available for half board and as we know Calis and Fethiye quite well we much prefer B & B so went with the Dolphin.
It is reminiscent of a youth hostel, basic but has everything you need. Our room was a bit knocked about, gaps in the window and door but the bed was comfortable and everything in the bathroom worked. The towels were awful but pretty good if you want to exfoliate your skin on a daily basis.
I was not impressed to see one of the staff sleeping on the sofa outside every night then wake up rub his face,scratch his head and then go to prepare breakfast - yuck!
It is a difficult review for us as we paid so little £3.50 a night but would still not recommend to anyone. I would rather pay £5 and stay at the Mendos or Remer Hotel. If your budget is tight then go for it but if you can afford just a bit more you will have a much more comfortable stay. We feel there is cheap and too cheap and unfortunately for us the Dolphin was too cheap.
On a positive note the location is great, it's at the quieter end of Calis (although Calis if far from roudy!) and Calis is a great resort, good restaurants, friendly locals, easy to get around on the dolmous and we would still return.
