Dolphin Apartments
Ranked #51 of 70 Hotels in Faliraki
Reviewed September 14, 2009

I wanted a relaxing holiday with the choice to do what I wanted and not too close to the nightlife. I also did not want to be where there would be a lot of children, there was only one, who was very well behaved and happy enough not to have other children around. The Dolphin is just the place for this. The owner and her children are very nice and welcoming. It is a nice resort with a great pool, and not too big so everyone gets to know each other with a nice friendly atmospher. The studios have everything you need, bed, shower room, cooker, sink, fridge, enough storage space for clothes and a belcony.

You are close to Faliraki, so a nice walk for a great night out, or just strolling around during the day looking in the shops and a visit to the beach. The locals are very friendly and helpfull.

I went on three excursions and would recomend these, especially the Grand Island Tour, I had a great time and came back a bit tipsy after lunch and then a visit to the local winery. Old Rhodes is not to be missed, a lovely old town. If you book two exscursions you get another one for free.

Would recommend this resort, but remember that it is a two star and self catering, if you want a four/five star hotel will all the trimmings then do not book this one, it is very basic, but you do have the rest of the Island for shoppping and sight seeing.

Overall I had a great holiday.

We booked the Dolphin with Olympic Holidays and after frantically searching for a good word about the hotel I gave up and just left it till we actually seen if for ourselves as i was assured by Olympic that if we were not entirely happy with it we could move to a different location.

On arriving we was tired due to the looong delay at the airport only because the Greek are much more laid back than us English people.

After our shuttle transfer which was 15 minutes we arrived at Dolphin studios and was introduced to the lady who ran the place … First impressions good … nerves of all the bad thoughts were dimmed.

We arrived in our room (number 6) and what can I say, for the £235.00 each that it cost us it was moooore than good. The room smelt of fresh bedding and was very clean. The shower worked, the self catering part was enough for me and my sister.

Being two young girls, my self 25 and my sister 20, we didn’t want to go to sleep as we wanted to go check out how far we were actually from the beach and Bar Street.

We walked onto the front were the highway was and its not too busy and not like the M1 at all … so ignore them comments. It was simply just a small 100 metre dash to pavement which was not dangerous as I just made it sound. The only thing that was trouble was getting used to which side the traffic comes from and weighing up how fast they are actually travelling as the Greeks take no prisoners ha!

The walk down to the centre was about 15 minutes each way and its not that bad, so whoever complains of the walk is just LAZY! It was well worth the walk if you had just had your tea and you was going back to get changed as it worked all them extra calories off, with the food portions being mega large. We walked to the beach and hotel and back again at least 3-4 times a day and never once even in the 42 degree heat was it a bad walk. It was nice to see what was doing the other streets all the small little businesses.

The pool area at the Dolphin is very nice, food looovely and the staff were brilliant. For an extra 20 Euro we kept our room til 9pm the day of leaving. Everything about the hotel was amazing and even as a young gil they were older people there and they loved every minute of their stay too. No one ever comes back from their holiday and writes a GOOD review … but I thought that this place deserved it. I would definitely recommend this to anyone, poss not young children as they like to wonder but defo to the younger age who fancy or don’t mind the walk to the beach and whop want to be out of all the party streets.

Overall I loved Falaraki and it wasn’t as scary as people have made it out to be. I recommend instead of catching taxis here and there go for a walk, more of less every street will lead to the beach if you do get lost. We walked to the water park which was a good 45 minutes walk but it was a nice pleasant walk and we got a cracking tan from all the walking we did.

So I say try Dolphin studios and stop putting you nose up to it … it’s a 2 star place for a cheap price so what do you expect the HILTON?!!

The owners were absolutely awful, argued all the time..... The room was not ready on arrival, it was shabby, small, we had a tree in our balcony. broken machines and furniture for our views. The pool had no water in it and finally, THIS HOTEL IS ON THE M25, not suitable for anyone to stay at!!!
