Loved every minute in this lovely establishment will recommend it to anyone. Our room, which was spacious had a beautiful sea view, loved the access onto the beach. Easy access from the car park to the room. The gardens and outside areas were well maintained. Staff were friendly and helpful. Thank you will visit again soon.

We recently stayed at Dolphin Dunes Guesthouse at the Wilderness for one nite and wished it could have been one week! Received a very warm welcome from Andre, our host, who helped with luggage and explained everything in the unit. We had a garden suite - own private patio, fully equipped kitchen, lounge, big bedroom with separate space for luggage,... More

What a wonderful breakaway our weekend at Dolphin Dunes was!! We also just happened to come across this wonderful gem of a guesthouse whilst planning a short breakaway holiday. We had the most amazing room with wonderfully breathtaking views of the ocean! We are generally very adventurous people, but this place and the setting and the view is so wonderful... More

Dolphin Dunes is the perfect location. The owners take pride in their service and we had a warm welcome. Great breakfast too. We will definitely use Dolphin Dunes again. Great value for money and literally a stones throw from the beach.

My Husband and I happened to stumble across Dolphin Dunes guest house while planning our Holiday. And to say we were blown away is a understatement. Our room and view was breathtaking. Breakfast was always yummy. The staff and owners were all extremely polite and friendly. Our expectations were exceeded and we can't wait to return.

Perfectly situated with a view of the ocean that cannot be beaten. Our room was spacious and well decorated with a feel of utter privacy. I will definitely recommend a stay here! Enough good restaurants around as well.
