Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Our stay at the Dolphin Apartments was very enjoyable. The apartment was clean and spacious and the location is excellent, being right on a very nice part of the beach. Our only concern was that the 'Partial Ocean View' was very partial. Staff were welcoming, helpful and polite and the cost was reasonable for the time and location. Thanks for an enjoyable stay. We'll be back again for sure.
