“great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

We stayed in a studio room, which had a fantastic view of the ocean. The room had everything we could have wanted and although it was rather dated when we left they were putting down new flooring in many of the rooms. We had called ahead to find out whether there were wine glasses and a kettle in the room and they made sure we got them for our stay. The front desk staff were extremely helpful. The studios seemed to be in a much better location than the 1 bedrooms. The pool and the hot tub were great. Didn't use the bbq's but saw many people who did. Just had to walk down a few stairs and the beach was right there. Oh yes like the name of the hotel, we did see dolphins jumping in the ocean. I would definitely go back to this place, but probably not during bike week.

This is our 4th stay at The Dolphin Beach Club at Daytona. Keep coming back for the small friendly resort. This is not a fancy place so don't come expecting all the bells and whistles but everything you need is provided. Small kitchen but I cooked every day with no problem, just adapt to your surroundings. After all you are here for the beach not the room. Room was clean, pleasantly decorated with a pull across room divider if you want, but we never use it. Just three of us and no problems with space, etc. Pool and Spa always clean and well attended to every morning by staff. Of course the best part is you are just steps away from the great beach!. Housekeeping helpful with clean towels and extra supplies for room when needed. Free WIFI too. Met a lot of friendly folks once again, many are owners who come the same week each year so there are genuine friendships formed but they were more than willing to include "newcomers" into their conversations at poolside. Coffee every am and free donuts on Monday, kids love that! To me the resort being small is definitely a plus, can feel safe with your kids at the pool and can leave your towel, return to your room for lunch and come back to poolside without any worries about your items being messed with, etc. General safe feeling for the kids too. The studios are all oceanfront, definitely a plus, the 1 bed units are not ocean front. I would definitely sacrifice the space to have the ocean views in the studios. Next time when we return to Daytona Beach, it will be at the Dolphin for sure.

Room Tip: Ask for Studio unit, ocean front. The 1 bed units are not and face the parking street areas.

We have stayed here several times. The view is incredible as well as the location. The pool is nice. The kids enjoyed every minute here. My only complaint is that only two burners worked on the stove in the kitchenette, but who wants to cook on vacation anyway. This is a great place to stay at a good price. Close to all the fun Daytona has to offer.

My husband and I just returned from our stay at the Dolphin Beach Club Daytona. I must say, when we pulled up, it wasnt love at first sight, but once we walked into our room it was love. The VIEWS were AMAZING!!!! The room didnt even matter at that point!!! We stayed on the bottom floor so we literaly opened up our back door and stepped onto our patio, then pool area then to the beach. EXACTLY what I wanted!!!! The rooms were out-dated, but it served its purpose. We grilled out by the pool a few nights, which was awesome!! The staff was very nice and friendly. I cannot wait to come back and I dont think I'd want to stay anywhere else but here!!!

Great view and clean beach condo. Value was super and would stay again and again. The amenities were wonderful. We cooked out, close to good restaurants to go out also. It was surprising to see a property that was so well kept so close to the beach. Only negative was the public access. Pool got very busy because of it along with the grills and tables on Memorial Day.

I have been staying at the dolphin beach club for 28 years, and I'm 28... It is a great small place that is surrounded by high rises and I hope it never changes. Very personal. Staff is great! Room is small but who goes on vacation to sit in the room??? Full kitchen with dishwasher. Right on the ocean, large pool and great BBQ area. Location is great! Everything is close by. If your looking for fancy.... This is not your place, But if your looking for a great vacation spot for a great deal, dolphin beach club is where it's at :)

We stay at the Dolphin for the month of February. We go to the Daytona 500 and the location of the hotel from the track is perfect. The view from the room is perfect lay in bed have coffee and watch the Dolphins play right outside your window.

Room Tip: Studio have the best views.
