“Lovely posada, wonderful people.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2010

We chose Rancho Delfin after reading tripadvisor reviews and after 5 wonderful days there we fully agree with all the accolades. The posada is exactly as described on their website, stylish rooms with peaceful and tranquil ambience. But it's the warmth and friendliness of Aura and Zully that makes your stay here so special. Aura met us with a warm welcome at the airport, fantastic after a long flight to have someone meet and greet you. She was a constant help to us throughout our stay. It’s thanks to Zully’s attention to detail that the posada is kept in such pristine condition.
It’s a short walk to the beach, not a problem even with our kite gear on our backs.
Breakfast is special with a different surprise every day.
Staying here was a wonderful experience and a great start to our holiday. We highly recommend a stay here and hope to return real soon.

After a busy working period in Amsterdam we decided to relax a week in the Caribbean. As my girlfriend is a fanatic kite surfer we decided to combine relaxing with a top spot for kite surfing. I have to admit i felt a bit hesitant about spending my holidays at a kiting spot, as I was used to the typical relaxing atmosphere of other Caribbean resorts. Arriving at Rancho Delfin I was astonished: this place offers exactly the relaxing/luxurious atmosphere you would expect from a Caribbean resort, the design of the place is amazing, no comparison to the other posadas and hotels in El Yaque (which in general appear a bit grungy)
The service from the resort staff is great and very personalized, they arrange everything from airport transfer, diving trips, to relaxing massages on a lazy afternoon
We spend a lovely relaxing period at rancho Delfin, and would recommend this place for anybody willing to relax and/or enjoy the great winds for kite surfing in el yaque.
A lot of st Martin’s luxurious resorts we have visited before, could take Rancho Delfin as an example!

I have spent 2 weeks in Rancho Delfin chilling out and relaxing on the beach. Even without being a kiter it was very enjoyable. The place is quite special as compared to other posada's in El Yaque with a very good service, comfortable rooms and beautiful surrounding. If you plan to stay in El Yaque or nearby I would definitely recommend this place!

Arrived with lost baggage, we met the warmest and most assisting service in Rancho Delfin. Every step was assisted by three kindest person Zully, Aura and Nena - baggage problem solving, delivery from/to airport and other destinations, rental of a car (which is problematic there on busy X-mass period), recommendations of sightseeing with the map of the island provided. Always available someone in posada. Kids of 9 and 6 years old could stay during the hottest hours inside theposada with no parents eye as it was safe place always secured by a watchman. No problems in communication, (we are not Spanish speaking (yet). Limited number of rooms give perfect silence effect at nights which is good for those who come after surfing the whole day. Beach nightlife does not bother guests. No swimming pool on the territory which is safe for kids. Distance to the beach is about 10 mins walking with kids slowly. Room and territory comfort is on the highest level. Water supply (hot/cold) was perfect. No probs with the air conditioning or ventilation. Safe box is available. Every morning different breakfast with the fresh juices.
Perfect place to go for holidays.

If you want to forget your stress and you are looking for a peaceful place in a cosy environment, Rancho Delfin is without any doubt the place to go.
Very comfortable rooms, nicely decorated with a direct access to a nice deck where you could take refreshments or looking to the stars at night.
Difficult to describe the breakfast time but believe me it will be one of your best moment of your day.
Thank you to Zully, Taty and Emile for their warm presences and for all the good times that I already had in Rancho Delfin.
