“Family fun time”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

We stayed in unit 605 for a week in mid-August and found Dolphin Run and the unit to be great family accommodations. The location at the south end of the boardwalk/beach was great for walking out to the beach, walking to restaurants and activities, yet far enough from the bars and attractions for quiet nights. Our unit was clean, spacious, and provided dolphin sightings from the unit balcony and the beach as advertised! Parking was convenient & safe. We used the hot tub, but not the pool as we found the beach and day/evening activities sufficient for our high school and college aged kids. Renting linens, chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards from Ocean Rentals was also a good deal & convenient. We rented bikes for a 2 hour ride one day & found that allowed plenty of time for exploring the length of the boardwalk and the Rudee's Inlet area to check out the boat tour options too. I definitely recommend this to families with kids of all ages. Only benefit that would have been great was an outdoor pool, but that is a rarity for the majority of condos on the boardwalk. This was a good value, fun, and memorable for our family.

Stayed there with my wife this past late May. This is our third visit overall. Great location on the south end of the boardwalk. Away from the crowds but within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Beach area is also less crowded because of location. Most of the restaurants we like are very close to hotel. (Rockefellers/Mahi Mahs/Planet Pizza/Tap House/Watermans). We just park our car upon arrival and don't get back in it until time to leave. Rooms are all unique depending on condo owners tastes. The rooms we have chosen are clean and well decorated. We like the two bedroom two bathroom condos for roominess and a nice buffer zone. Really nice lobby area. Security is great since you can't get in without a key of for someone at the desk to buzz you in. Nice indoor pool with hot tub area. Private reserved parking space assigned. Only downsides are having to supply linens and balconies are not very wide but not a biggie. We will be back again next year.

We stayed in unit 1100 and I was scared of what I'd find after reading a review saying the unit had cockroaches--no bugs --very clean and nice. It's a great corner unit with three balconies and the condo rooms are large and comfortable--definitely stay there again.

We stayed in unit 907 on 7/21-7/28 and it was wonderful! The unit was clean and the furnishings were very nice, exactly as the photos shown online. The views from the balconies were incredible. We were pleasantly surprised to find the unit was on the end, beautiful views from all windows. The staff was nice, check in was very quick. The condo offered everything we needed for a great vacation. We will definately be back!!

I visited Dolphin Run last weekend (7/12) Room 1100. It was nasty. There were roaches behind the table,dead ones in the fridge and freezer. We complained to the front desk and they looked suprised LIKE THEY KNEW NOTHING ABOUT IT,, but I saw a roach motel on the floor. I woke up out of he bed to see a roach crawling on the wall.This did not live up to my expectations considering this room was recommended by the staff and we paid a lot of money. The pool looked nasty.The shower does not drain properly. I was just very disappointed. The balcony table was broken. I don't mind paying a lot of money for a good quality room.

Room Tip: STAY AWAY! Try the marriot.

I recently stayed in room 907 with my husband, daughter, son in law, and two grandsons. Overall our experience was very positive. The owner of this condo unit supplied linens and towels and they were a cut above the usual rental items. The layout was nice and the bedrooms and living room were large and comfortable. There were balconies off two of the bedrooms and a large balcony off the livingroom. The views were absolutely fantastic from every room! The kitchen was small and could have used upgraded appliances but it was serviceable. Cons that prevent me from giving this condo 5 stars: No in unit laundry facilities (coin laundry down the hall), no outdoor pool, small kitchen and bathrooms, $100.00 fee for an extra parking spot located across the street. The condo boasts free wi fi but the signal was too weak to pick up on the 9th floor.

We stayed in unit 1401 May 11 - 17, 2012 and were very pleased with our experience. The Condo was clean and very accessible to the Boardwalk, restaurants, entertainment, and the beach. We arrived to the Monster Truck Bash and were able to view the whole thing from our balcony. The staff was very helpful and the security was great. The Condo was very adequate with two bedrooms and two baths which was perfect for our family. I would highly recommend this property for a good Va Beach experience.
