Well the view was great!

Beautiful walk out to the beach view. Offered no shampoo or conditioner. We asked and they said they didn't have any. I don't I have ever stayed at a hotel that did not have shampoo or conditioner. The shower dripped constantly and you would not want to take a bath in it. You could not lock the sliding glass door to the beach. We were not informed of that . They did send someone to look at it. He said he would send someone but never did. He did show me tha bar to drop to hold it closed. Would have been nice to know beforehand. We ate lunch at the hotel restaurant. I asked about the fish. The waitress told me she had heard good things about it. The fish was limp and soggy. Supposed to be crispy. When the waitress saw I didn't eat the fish, she asked if I didn't like it. I said it was soggy and limp but it was ok. It wasn't, we didn't go back there. She said well I didn't know because I don't eat fish. I spoke to a person at your office who recommended the hotel. It needs updating, it was a shame because we absolutely loved the view.

Second honeymoon

The hotel is a great value. Location is perfect to stroll out onto the beach or walk across the street for grocery store, pharmacy, liqueur store, ice cream, beach shop or Italian restaurant. Also dolphin and sunset cruises take off from the dock across the street. IHOP is in walking distance as well. The hotel is older, but nicely updated. Soft sheets, new mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker. The restaurant is good. The room service is quick and all the prices are affordable. Cute outdoor bar with live music on the weekends. Pool was great. There is no hot tub though :( the staff was all very friendly and helpful.

Lemon Tree spa is amazing (don't be fooled by the exterior) and Madeleine's Cottage Inn restaurant (over by blind pass rd) was great!

Beach Fun at St. Pete!

I enjoyed my stay at the Dolphin Beach Resort. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful in suggesting places for me to dine. I had a room with a view of the pool and St. Pete Beach. I attended the Karaoke night in the restaurant bar and the next afternoon at Flippers bar by the pool. I had a fabulous time.

great beach views

The hotel was just as pictured, it had bright and colorful accents. The pool was great amenity. It was clean and had plenty of chairs but had just a few tables with shade. The rooms were average; they were a bit musty due to excess moisture. Overall we had a good stay.

Fantastic beach getaway

the Hotel hosted the best of both world's pool and beach. Very family oriented and clean. Restaurant food was good and the Tiki lounge outside was a nice way to watch the beach or pool under a covered area.

A Lovely Little Place

This hotel was clean, well maintained and RIGHT ON THE BEACH. The staff was helpful and friendly. There is a strip mall across the street with a grocery store, drug store and places to eat. Check out the Japanese steakhouse and french bakery. My only con is that the rooms were small. If you are looking for a swanky, high end resort, this is not it. If you are looking for a clean, quiet place to relax and enjoy the beach, I highly recommend the Dolphin Beach Resort.
