About Dolphin Beach Resort

The Dolphin Beach Resort treats guests to beachfront accommodations on St. Pete Beach.

All of the spacious 173 rooms offer convenient amenities like air-conditioning, satellite TV, a microwave, coffee maker, a fridge, an iron and a hair dryer, and some are equipped with a balcony.

The hotel features a pool with a sundeck and lounges, daily housekeeping, a safe at the front desk, laundry facilities, limited free parking, a shuffle board court and select water activities.

Guests may enjoy a hearty breakfast buffet at Boca Sands Grille as well as traditional American meals, tasty snacks at Flipper’s Beach Bar and drinks at the Lobby Lounge.

Positive Reviews

Great location.

Guests liked the fact that the hotel is situated right on the white-sand beach with ample restaurants nearby and a grocery store opposite the hotel.

Decent amenities.

Guests liked the fact that even though the hotel is located right on the beach, there is a decent-sized pool on the premises. Every room gets one free parking pass, and the on-site restaurant and bar offer affordable and tasty meals.

Comfortable rooms.

The rooms are spacious and equipped with convenient amenities like ample pillows, a microwave, a small fridge and even some balconies.

Negative Reviews

Starting to age

As guests reported, the property could use some updating with the first impression of the hallways not being the best, since they have a rather musty odor. The rooms also aren't as modern and bright as guests had hoped, because the walls, floors and bathrooms should be renovated. Apparently there are permanent stains on the walls, bedding and curtains as well.

Staff hit or miss

While a few staff members were said to be professional, a lot of guests reported the front-desk staff to be lacking in customer-service skills. They pointed out that the employees hardly ever smiled or appeared approachable and were even rude in declining requests or unwilling to answer questions.

Sleep might be disturbed.

Several guests commented on the fact that they were woken up by the rather noisy air-conditioners every time they started up. Moreover, some noted that it was impossible to sleep in on the weekends due to the lawn maintenance starting very early in the morning.
