We booked an aprtment that was advertised as having full ocean views for 3 nights. When we checkedin we found out that the views from fhe first floor apartment were partial ocean views. There was a fuel station and trees that obstructed the views. We raised this with the aprtment staff who paid little notice and were on he verge of being rude. There are many other properties with better views and better prices...absolute disappointmnt.

Our 2nd stay here in a little over 12 mths and did not disappoint. Clean and spacious with everything you could need for a short stay away from home. We stayed here with our 2 young children who did not want to leave. They especially loved the 'shower-bath' in the master bedroom! A quick stroll to the beach and the eateries of Apollo Bay. Management is always courteous and informative. Would not hesitate to recommend Dolphin Apartments as a great place to stay in Apollo Bay.

We stayed here for 4 nights in late November as a base for exploring the Great Ocean Road, 12 Apostles and Otway National Park.
Hubby & I had a 2 bedroom apartment on the 2nd floor.
On arrival we were met with a warm welcome and shown promptly up stairs.
We were very pleasantly surprised when entering the apartment as it was so modern, clean & bright with fairly good views towards the ocean. We were in a corner apartment closest to the road, so I can’t vouch for views from the other 2nd floor apartments.
Our room had a king bed and a spa bath with shower over the top and a vanity.
The other bedroom had 2 singles which I'm pretty sure could be zipped together if need be? There was a 2nd bathroom with a large shower, vanity and toilet, plus also a separate toilet.
The laundry facilities were tucked away nicely in a large wall closet next to the kitchen. It consisted of a tub, washer, dryer and iron & board.
The kitchen was well equipped, which we didn't use as we ate out all meals or got take away.
There was a large flat screen TV in the living area and a smaller one in our bedroom. There was also a music system and DVD player.
The sitting area was comfortable, with air conditioning & heating . There was also a dining table which seated 6. And there was an outdoor setting on the balcony.
Location wise, it was just behind the petrol station, which is on the great Ocean Road, opposite the beach. It’s a very short walk to the restaurants and shops of Apollo Bay, and in one of the nicest towns we visited (in our opinion). I don’t think you’d go wrong booking a stay here. It would be hard to find fault with the apartments and I would highly recommend them. (The 3rd level would have the best views) 1st level has none at all.

Room Tip: the higher the floor level, the better the views

Stayed for 5 nights in the first floor apartment. This was our second stay after the first stay in 2006. The apartment was a huge 2 bedroom. My son loved the experiece. The apartment was better than the ones we stayed in Melbourne. It still feels brand new and it is so clean and new. Ample kitchen facilities;very nice toilets; free wifi ; huge TV;good cable channels; ample parking; a few minutes to the beach. Away from the town center but within walking distance. we used the apartment as our base to travel to the 12 apostles (85km) away and the various Otway Waterfalls. love the drive through the otway forests. The service is excellent. Thank you Ari and keep up the great work .
