We have stayed here several times in the past couple of years while visiting family. The location is convenient to them and there is also a grocery store just a couple blocks away...a nice morning walk. I went there to pick up yogurt and fruit and water and kept it in the refrigerator provided in the room. The room and...

My husband and I made the trip down to Cape Coral and loved our stay at Dolphin Key. The rooms were recently remodeled and are in excellent shape for the cost. The pool and tiki bar are awesome and so great to have on site. There's no need to even leave the hotel with a tiki bar that close, but...

We only stayed one night on our way south. It was good for that and walking distance to many bars & restaurants. The pool is nice and they offer free breakfast which was pretty good. The rooms were recently updated so that was nice however the beds were not great! Also we do not like the air conditioners in the...

This particular night we sat at the bar with friends from out of town and watched the filthiest drink service in town. Bartenders/barbacks didn't wash their hands in the two hours we were there. If you can even get them to do it, they wipe the bar with a dirty rag that leaves more dirt than it picks up. They...

We had a great time hanging out at the pool and tiki bar. If you like live bands and music it is a good time. If you go to bed early and want it to be quiet this may not be the place for you to stay. I have already made our next reservations cant wait to stay again. The...

I enjoyed a one-night stay at the Dolphin Key Resort during a business trip. My room was simple and clean, all tile floor overlooking the pool. My internet connection was good, tv worked fine, shower was nice - all good. Downstairs is a Tiki Bar adjacent to the pool. The bartender had a bit of an attitude but that's no...

Our room was big, clean and comfortable. Bed was very cozy. They have a great tiki bar. This was a goof place to join family and friends! The location is very convenient! The pool was also clean. The receptionist was very friendly. We highly recommend Dolphin Key Resort.

Room has been renovated - felt brand new and clean. Beautifully landscaped courtyard and nice pool. Tiki Bar was really fun - wonderful servers and good food. Free breakfast was awful - go down the street to Perkins instead for an amazing morning meal. It is noisy in the room when the band is playing, but they don't play very...

Hi, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Our weekend entertainment can be loud, I agree, so if you would like peace and quiet next time book your room street side through the hotel. Breakfast is only omelette, ham, turkey, bagels, toast, danishes, cereal and yogurt, so if you would like a big breakfast order a a carte at...
