This is an absolutly beautiful resort with amazing views of the ocean. Our family has stayed at several places in Pismo Beach and in Avila Beach with this experiance being the best. The rooms do not have air conditioning and the particular week of our visit the area had a little heat wave. In addition to that there was a slight maintenance issue with our first room but the staff was amazing about the situation and handeled it 100% to our satisfaction. Erika, the manager at the time, was absolutly awsome and went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our stay there. Thank you and we look forward to our next seaside vacation.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet with great views but the best views are in the middle higher up.

We stay at this hotel whenever we come to SLO to visit family. We arrived on Friday to a gorgeous ocean sunset which made us so happy after a long crowded drive from the Bay Area. The rooms are so nice and spacious that our family wants to come have dinner on our deck!

We wanted to get away for a couple of days and it was last minute trip not to far of a drive from Santa Barbara. We booked 2 nights and although one was a bit over proced due to Cal poly parents weekend activities we had a great stay on a part ocean view suite .
Great location nice rooms and indoor parking and very friendly staff starting with Jacob at the front desk. We will be back some other time for sure.

Room Tip: watch for Cal poly activties because suite prices become double the regular rate

We were at Dolphin Bay recently for our fourth year in a row on Labor Day Weekend. While it wasn't a perfect stay--mostly due to it being the hottest weekend of the year--the staff did everything they could to make our stay the best it could be.

As always, the rooms, pool and facilities were 5 star, and we'll definitely be back for next year. Thank you Dolphin Bay!

Top notch resort with incredible, helpful staff in every dept. Customer service is unsurpassed. Rooms/Suites very large, beautiful décor, full kitchen with top of the line appliances. Ocean views from room balcony are magnificent and the food from Lido Restaurant is definitely 5 star quality. Try the Menu Tasting paired with wines for dinner for an extra special treat.

Room Tip: Ask for room 322. it is a one bedroom suite on the corner of the building and is fabulous!
