Beautiful room with spectacular view of the ocean. 3 ballrooms with large capacity. Pool bar is fun and food is excellent. Staff was very helpful and accommodating.
A very pleasant stay.

Spent 5 nights here in beach front room with balcony. Beautiful view right on the beach. The restaurant was good. It was nice to not have to leave the property and we used room service a couple of times. Ken the bartender was so much fun! Room was large and clean with really comfortable bed. Housekeeping did a great job as well. Nice pool. Walking distance to restaurants. Publix directly across the street. We were very happy with this resort, and if we go back to St. Pete, we will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Beach front rooms have beautiful view.

If you want to stay in a hotel with large clean rooms, a good sized kitchenette, and wake up every morning to sunshine and stunning views then I would recommend you visit The Dolphin.

The hotel sits directly on the beach with stunning views of the white sand and ocean. The ocean facing rooms have sliding doors opening directly onto the beach (or if you are on a higher level onto your balcony) and the views are second to none – especially at sunset . We have stayed at other hotels on St. Pete Beach but done compares to The Dolphin.

If you don’t wish to drive, you don’t have to, there is Publix directly across the road with numerous restaurants to choose from within 20 minutes walk.

We arrived at around 12noon and was not expecting to be able to check in but Nancy on reception was very accommodating and checked us into our room there and then. Thank you Nancy!

I hope to be back again in 2018. I love visiting the USA but I love The Dolphin and St Pete most of all.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms are amazing.

Thank you very much for your detailed review of our property! I am glad to hear that you enjoyed staying in our Deluxe Beachfront rooms, which afford some of the best views around. We are also quite fortunate to be located right across the street from a shopping center and close to dozens of amazing restaurants. While our check in time doesn't technically start until 4 P.M. we do our best to check our guests in as soon as their room is ready and I am glad we were able to do so for you. We look forward to a possible return trip in 2018!

This hotel is a family owned property! All the staff made you feel like you were one of their own! Rooms are spacious, clean and modern! Beach is beautiful, no doubt about that. The pool area is very clean and has a tiki bar on the beach. Across the street is all the shopping you need.. we had so much fun. This is now a favorite place to vacation! We will be going back next year! Highly recommend Dolphin Beach Resort . Ps. Great for money. Doesn’t break the bank!!

Thank you for your review! We are proud to say that we have been a family owned and run property since 1981. This family influence is one of the main reasons we try to remain affordable (at least for a beach property). We want every family to be able to come and stay with us and create lasting memories together in a beautiful setting. If you do decide to book with us for next year, please feel free to send me an email at iman@dolphinbeach.com if you have any questions or requests!

I was expecting nice, but not this awesomeness. From the minute we walked in, Jimmy greeted us, and answered all our questions about the resort, and our best seafood dinner was a place he recommended
Our room (212) had a really nice view, and was super clean.
The restaurant served a hearty breakfast at a very reasonable price. The burgers at lunch were tasty. Thank you Marcy for the wonderful service.
The Knock-out punch is the beach!! wide and expansive, beautiful fine sand, and great to swim I love nice beaches, and this was fabulous.
The pool was also very good, with plenty of loungers and shade.
Overall,this is the only place I will stay in the area.
Worth every dollar.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review! I am glad to hear that you had a positive check in experience and enjoyed a restaurant recommendation made by Jimmy. I am also glad that you dined at our in house restaurant for breakfast and burgers. When the beach is as beautiful as it is, who would want to leave property? We do hope you will decide to return to the area and stay with us again!
