This is a lovely place to visit. Our unit was spotless and very comfortable. We had a 2 bedroom unit which was perfect for our family. Reception staff was very friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. The units have a beautiful view of the bay, great to sit outside and watch the sun rise. Perfect location to feed the dolphins. We'd love...

Clean room, water front apartment and a few minutes drive to shops and close jetty (dolphins watching). Tincan Bay is good place for retirees, there only one grocery store and ideal place for who just wants to relax and doing nothing.

My husband and I stayed here last night. We had a lovely room, and I can imagine spending a week or more very comfortably here. The manager was so lovely, I asked him loads of questions about the area and he was very giving with good information.

Stayed two nights at the dolphin water hotel and would totally go back, the service was amazing and the rooms big enough to fit four people. The hotel manager was super friendly. Thanks for having us.

We stayed here for 4 nights in room 4, I honestly have not got one bad thing to say about it. The room was clean, private, good size for us (2 adult 1 five year old), it was always quite and peaceful. Got to really relax and because it was small we got a lot of time just us in...

My partner, sister in law and my sister in laws mother and myself stayed here overnight on 10/10 so we could feed the dolphins the next morning. We had a 2 bedroom apartment and we were on the ground floor, it has a pool. The apartment was ok but could maybe do with some updating and it needs heavy curtains...

Beautiful water views. A quiet, restful location close to the marina, boat ramps, cafes.... and then there is the dolphins. Oh wow, we fed them, it was just beautiful! The unit was very comfortable. A spacious balcony to look out over the pool and the stunning view! Good beds. Clean!

Even though this was a pit stop on the way home on our road trip, we would seriously consider coming back to stay here for longer. The unit (#5) was very clean, well appointed and had decent views despite being on the ground floor. It was airy, light and comfortable. We loved the clean and organised pool/BBQ area. The succulent...
