My husband and I visited the Club Hotel Dolphin in August 2016 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. From the very first moment we were treated with the greatest respect and care - which was appreciated after a 14 hour overnight flight! The reception staff and everyone throughout the hotel were only too happy to be of help, giving a friendly... More

We had a great time and we'll come back! We had a pool access room, which was perfect: an amazing overview over the huge pool! The stuff is very friendly, also the animation team! Housekeeping was done well. The food in the main restaurant was always in good choice and quality. Even the snack restaurant offered nice things.

We booked a superior garden room which turned out to overlook a stage a big tree and a tennis court. The room however was very nice and comfortable. The food was splendid and plenty of it. My gripe is my version of all inclusive. Cocktails of the day was extra, peanuts were extra along with wine? Apparently I should have... More

The hotel is well spread out on a large parcel of land overlooking the beach. The location is great and has good potential. The hotel is several years old and need refurbishment and I am sure the management must be seriously considering it. Good opportunity if the changes are effected without delay. Staff was good and courteous.

Some of the friendliest staff I've had the pleasure of meeting during my holidays over the years, always smiling and helpful, nothing is too much for them. Ruwan looked after our rooms and took great care to learn our habits to make sure our enjoyment wasn't disrupted by room servicing. Buildings were a little tired, in room air-conditioning wasn't very... More

Been there on a day package with a group of 10 celebrating my brothers birthday. The place is very nice and the staff was quite friendly. The lunch buffet didn't have a huge verity (probably because it was a week day) but what they had was really good. One thing that got me concerned was they claim to have a... More
