Rooms were fairly clean. Need updating, only a small table with 1 chair in the room and no closets. Our TV did not work. Some rooms had wifi, we had Dish Network and apparently there are problems with Dish at this location. I booked 4 rooms for 8 buddies on a golf trip. Just a bit disappointed. Expected more of a resort. Tiki Bar was good. Good music and good prices on the food.

We were a little skeptical when we arrived. We stayed for 4 nights and would definitely stay again. It’s not fancy but it’s also a fraction of the cost of other hotels. The rooms are clean and bed was comfortable. We enjoyed the pool during the day and the tiki bar at night. The live music was great and brought in a crowd. The staff were all friendly and worked hard. The only thing I wouldn’t recommend on the menu is the tuna tips. It was two wonton chips with a little amount of tuna for $10. Everything else we had there was good and good servings!

Thank you for your review! The staff work hard and will be happy to know that it's apricated. (And thank you for your tuna comment. That's suppose to be the four wontons and 3 oz of tuna. I know, I wrote the recipe)

We have stayed at DKR for 15 years while visiting family for celebrations. The rooms were average, but beds WERE comfortable. Now, the beds have been replaced with a very uncomfortable mattress sitting very close to the floor (similar to a blow up mattress). Neither of us slept for more than an hour. Three outlets in our room were so loose, the chargers kept falling out of the outlet. One sink was full of bugs but ran up under sink ledge. Tile floor was so dirty. We didn’t go barefoot
This saddens us.

We had a nice stay at the Dolphin Key Resort. We have been here once before so we were aware of the layout with the Tiki Hut. This is an older hotel but is well kept and the rooms are clean. Not a loarge pool but, again, well kept and large enough for us to sit by and enjoy the sun. The Tiki Hut is a nice place to grab a drink or meal. The stay included breakfast at the Tiki hut which was scrambled eggs, a hash brown pattie, sausage and a drink. Not a lot but it was sufficient and fresh. The Tiki hut has a variety of entertaniment which is a nice touch as well. Our room was onm the second floor and faced the pool but we were never bothered by any noise from the Hut or the pool.
The staff was always helpful from the cleaning ladies to the front desk. The hotel is located close to alot of bars and restuarants as well.
All in all a nice stay and we will stay here again when in the area.

My wife and I arrived in town a night before a full week vacation with family. The room was extra clean and large. They’re philosophy on no carpets or comforters to keep the rooms extra clean is definitely noticeable. My wife wore white socks for an hour and a half in the room when we first arrived and they were still white afterwards! Massive tiki bar and restaurant is an added bonus. Anyone that gave this hotel less than a “Very Good” totally forgot how much they were paying for the room! Don’t get me wrong it’s not a $350 a night hotel but they far exceeded our expectations.

Upon check-in we were handed a stapled piece of paper with our key inside. When we got to our room we heard the loud band coming from the restaurant on the other side of the pool. We asked the front desk lady to switch us to an outside room but she told us to check with the morning staff. We were planning to be out all day and, as we discovered that the front desk was only open from 9am-5pm (unheard of), that wasn't an option for us. There were no luggage carts, shower didn't work (even after we asked housekeeping to fix it), no shower curtain, no microwave and no top sheet on the bed. The owner of this hotel needs to learn some things about HOSPITALITY.

I am sorry that we have been through Covid-19 and every hotel and restaurant are looking for staff to the point where many have had to shut down. The shower did work it's just as modern as duvet covers are instead of unsanitary flat sheets, so it can be difficult for some to understand and we are all here to help you explain if needed. Microwaves are not something better hotels have and certainly not with a restaurant in house. For guests who read and are not so used to staying in hotels, I recommend that you look at the information in regards to what a hotel offers, where it is located so you can make an informed decision as to where you would like to stay. Don't just look at the price.

The Dolphin Key Resort could be a reasonably priced, Florida throwback alternative to the boring hotel chains. Instead, guests can expect a laissez-faire attitude, and a too-cozy relationship with the noisy bar next door. Consider these check in disclosures:

"I understand the lobby hours of operation are from 9:00am to 5:00pm daily. There are no personnel on site from 10:00pm to 9:00am for room lock outs or maintenance."

"I am aware only food and beverages purchased from the Tiki Hut Bar & Grill are allowed in the pool area and must be 12 feet away from the pool. I further understand these are Florida State regulations and failure to abide by them will impose a $200 charge added to my room."

And finally (even though the lobby is probably closed) there is a "$5 charge for unreturned key".

Hi Keith, So sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay. There is a man on the property 24 hours a day if you loose your key. The number is on the lobby door. When you check-out you can of course leave your key in the room, drop it in the key box by the lobby, or after 9 am give it to the lobby staff. The Tiki is part of the resort and offers live entertainment every night. Full bands during the weekend and lighter bands on the weekdays. The pool area is also part of the resort and many guests enjoy their meal and drinks in the garden by the pool We are sorry that we couldn't allow bottles by the pool. many people are bare footed there, so it is too much of a risk.

Our room was disgusting. Bugs in the shower, bathroom, and coming out of our sink. I really wish I took pictures because they hotel is denying these issues. Room service came in to clean TWICE while we were sleeping two hours before checkout. They also don't let you bring anything along with you to the pool unless its purchased from them or their own tap water. The tiki bar was fun and the band was great but the hotel attached to it will not be seeing our business again.
Their management team has also begun responding reviews claiming that disgruntled customers are leaving fake reviews.

Sorry Brianna for your bad experience. I know you were upset when we informed you that you can't bring glass bottles and your own alcoholic beverages to the bar and pool area. If you are reading this review, it is good for you to know that we do not allow you to bring glass bottles or your own alcoholic beverages to the pool area or bar. (you actually sign it upon check-in). If you don't want your room cleaned during the day please put up the "Do not disturb -sign", so house keeping knows. They do clean the rooms daily between 9.30 am and 3 pm.

From the moment you walk in, you feel welcome. The front desk is accommodating and friendly. There is a water station to fill water bottles and a commercial ice machine to fill coolers.

The hotel is centrally located and there are lots of restaurants within walking distance. However, if you want to go nowhere, you can sit at the pool or tiki bar and order food and drinks.

The tiki bar is loud at night so if you don’t want noise, get a room that is not near the pool. Or just stay up a little later and go listen to a wonderful band. That’s what I did and I was pleasantly surprised. Also, they were done by around 9:30 or 10 so whoever wrote the review about the loud music is just plain crabby

The best thing about the hotel was the room. I am super picky about hotels and I would definitely stay here again. The room was super clean and one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on. Plus it had tons of super squishy delightful pillows! On top of that, the room was the perfect temperature, something I feel is never right when you go to a hotel.

In conclusion, don’t let the bad reviews scare you. The dolphin is a hidden gem.

I highly recommend this lovely resort.
We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful resort in January 2020. Very sweet and professional staff, modern beautiful rooms, clean and tidy, lovely decorated, beautiful park by the pool area, Tiki-bar and restaurant where there was live entertainment. This resort is in a quiet area with restaurants and shops in the immediate area. The hotel is also very suitable to stay in if you want to make excursions in the area; Fort Myers, Pine island, Sanibel, Captiva and much more.

Is there a public beach that is within walking distance from the hotel?
Answer from Ann R
Luleå, Sweden4 contributions1 helpful vote
Hello. Not that I know of. I believe the staff at the Hotel can answer that question. I am from Sweden and most beaches in Sweden are public and quite easy to reach. I think that your question is very good as we found out that there are few beaches that are as public as we are used to. But I can say that this Hotel has a really lovely poolarea. We took the car to Captiva, up in the very North on Captiva you can find a lovely public beach and public parking. (Go early) On sunibel island in the South near the lighthouse there is also a public parking and lovely public beach. There was a public toilet but no shops as I can recall so remember to bring drinks, perhaps sunchair and perhaps umbrella. I wish you a wonderful stay if you go. Mabe Sweden sometime? /Ann Christine

Only if its through the week but that is ify in itself. Weekends consist of loud music and partying that can be heard even in the furthest rooms. Dont bother with the free breakfast, it consists of day old bagels, stale bread and quartered oranges.
