Hotel Dolphin
Ranked #18 of 30 Hotels in Altinkum
Reviewed August 6, 2012

We stayed for 2 weeks and it was the best holiday of my life! The staff were great and extremely friendly and went out of their way to help us with any requests we had. The breakfast was good with a selection of fresh fruits and a choice of drinks to have. The rooms were nice with optional air con which is a must have in the heat! At the end of the day you are not spending all day in your room, so why do you need all of the luxuries? A bed is a bed and if there is somewhere to rest your head then you are fine. The beach was a 2 minute walk and the hotel also had a lovely pool in which the boss allowed people who weren't staying at the hotel to come and use it. However the pool was never packed and you got to know all of the people staying at the hotel. It was a lovely, small, family run business that provided a fantastic stay for the 2 weeks. In my opinion if you want 5 star accommodation then pay for it. Don't pay for a 2 star hotel and moan that everything isn't good enough.

This hotel is fairly small, with very friendly staff and in a great location. It was only a couple of minutes from the beach and main promenade. The rooms are clean, roomy and cleaned regularly. We can't speak highly enough about the great staff.Not sure what else to say, other than I would reccomend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the front of the hotel may be beneficial as you dont have the sun beating in, in the mo...

I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the dolphin hotel, I have stayed here for 10 days and every night it has been a pleasure to come back to the rooms are basic but comfy, the showers are hot and there is more than enough wardrobe space, all communal areas has been renovated recently you can tell because the standard of the place is beautiful, pool is a really good size and there is a bar outside, would highly reccomend people to come here, in addition to the hotel being lovely, the staff are so so so nice!! Mehmet is a credit to the hotel anything you could wish for he will provide, he has great banter with the guests and makes you feel really really welcome, a must stay when coming to altinkum :-)

just got back from staying for a week at the dolphin. when we first arrived it was worse than i had expected, the bad points were that the bathroom wasn't very clean and the furniture and decor was very dated. Also air con is charged at £4 a day so we went without. The breakfast consisted of bread, jam, cheese, cucumber, tomatoes and watermelon. they didn't change the towels but when we asked they were happy to do this, the cleaner goes into the room everyday but all she seemed to do was make the bed and open the windows. Also where our room was it was very noisey throughout the day and night with music from next door- it didn't really bother us but would obviously not be suitable for children. On the plus side though the pool was nice and clean (although all th hotels seem to allow anyone into their pools) the manager was very friendly and helpful and the location was perfect, right by the beach and all the shops, restaurants and bus stop etc. I would definitely recommend Altinkum as a lovely place to go on holiday with lots to do for all ages (perhaps abit too hot in august for small kids though?) but i wouldn't recommend staying at this hotel as i wouldn't choose to stay there again....
