Hi Patricia,

We are ecstatic we surpassed your expectations. There is no better way to admire our beautiful country than from your hotel room balcony which is only a few metres from the beach, or relaxing at our restaurant (Blowfish) overlooking the bay and majestic Table Mountain.

Our staff pride themselves on being professional and friendly at all times - they will be informed of your positive feedback, thank you.

We hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Cape Town and look forward to welcoming you back at Dolphin Beach Hotel in the future.

Keep well, and travel safely,

Stayed at the Dolphin Beach Hotel 10 days ago. The room was clean and comfortable and nice and big. Was great having the option of a small kitchen in the room.

The staff were friendly and welcoming.

Beautiful sea and mountain views.
Would highly recommend the hotel to anyone visiting Cape Town.

The reception and welcoming was excellent. The rooms was clean and properly stocked. Maintenance reasponse was not at an acceptable levels. However, good foresight by the reception saved what could have been an embarrasment.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the beach are nicer and quiter.

We recently chose Dolphin Beach cabanas as our accommodation for a few days in Cape Town. Having 3 kids between the ages of 1 and a half and 9 always makes travelling quite stressful. We are always mindful to find a place that is child friendly and proofed enough for our toddler and exciting enough for our 9 year old. Dolphin Beach has everything we could need for our home away from home. The cabanas are spacious and functionally appointed. With great rolling grass areas a jungle gym and secure access to the beach we felt safe enough for the kids to roam and have fun. The staff were helpful and friendly and the gardens are beautifully kept, for the first time we felt like we could actually relax and enjoy a break. We will be making Dolphin Beach Hotel and Spa our home away from home everytime we stay in Cape Town

For the past years that we have been travelling with my husband we had never received such a good and prompt service from the staff of Dolphin Beach. It was our anniversary and as we walked in we were well welcome by well presented receptionist. We walked into our room and we receive some romantic turn down rose petals on the bed, bottle of wine and gowns on our bed.
The service of this hotel is extremely to the tee, location is of good value.
the service that we got at the beauty was out of this world after a 45 minutes back massage we felt refreshed and rejuvenated and top of it my wife received a free pedicure, I will really recommend this hotel and we will be back!!!

Room Tip: Book room 03 lovely spacious apartment with the view of table mountain and the smell of good breeze

During the past July Holidays we had the privilege of staying at the Dolphin Beach Cabanas for the weekend.
We had such an awesome weekend!
One thing i noticed when i stepped into the foyer of the hotel, 3 staff members were ready and waiting for guests arrival. I was much impressed with the promptness and the professional manner in which the staff checked me into the Hotel.
The beach cabana, takes you out to rolling lawns, great for the kids and quite near the play area.
The Cabana was very neat and tidy and spacious enough for our family of 5.
Wait......... and those yummy Tomes chocs.... THE BEST, I know they are sold at the V&A :) they were thoroughly enjoyed!!!
Ok now extras.... the stunning views of Table mountain and Signal Hill, have to admit that #lotsa Pics were taken of natures best... and the stunning weather made the stay even better.

Checkout service was professionally done, ... the Ladies I commend them on their excellence to service!! Well Done!! And i've been to many hotels ... even the best in Sandton and some of them fail dismally when it comes to Client Service. You can be Proud of your Hotel, Staff and Excellent Service rendered to your guest.

Thanks for an excellent weekend, will recommend your establishment to others.
Regards
Gill America

In July 2013 i stayed at Dolphin Beach hotel, as i walked to the front desk to check in i was warmly greeted by the 2 well presented receptionist. this already made me feel so welcome. My Room H13 was really such a beautiful sea facing room, spacious, clean and well maintained. Dolphin Beach Hotel is very central there are many shops and restaurants to chose from that is within walking distance from the hotel. the housekeeping staff are also very helpful definitely superior service with a smile! I wont stay anywhere else at Dolphin Beach Hotel when i have a business trip again.
