Perfect Getaway!

We have going to St Pete Beach since 1996 and usually stay at Ho Jo's. The last few years the vibe there has completely changed and the staff is NOT freindly at all. This year the rates went sky high even though the hotel rooms are falling apart so we decided to try something new. We are so happy we did! Our first impression was great. We arrived around 9:30 am and had no problem parking onsite while waiting for our room. The location was great! You could walk to everything you needed (especially Publix right across the street). The hotel was very quiet at night which made sleeping a pleasure. Seems like mostly couples and families stay here - NO party crowd. Will be returning again soon!

Great Location on the Beach!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel. We booked a beachfront room with a balcony. The view was fantastic and we were able to see dolphins swimming by.

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.

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.

Great Location! Beach and grocery

Had a wonderful stay, location on the beach was perfect. Also the grocery store and pharmacies are a short walk and located right across the street, perfect if no car! Bedding was super comfy, only wish the shower was more powerful. Also, no hot tub is a bummer, but pool was warm and sufficient for ppl quantity.

Great Location!

Found the Dolphin to be in a great location, right on the beach and close proximity to lots of dining. In addition, right across the street from pharmacies and a Publix if any needs should arise and no car. Bedding was the Hilton brand and super comfortable. Only things that didn't impress were the shower head in the bathroom (weak) and no pool towels or pool towel dropoff. I believe this is b/c of it being on the beach and random ppl trying to grab, but perhaps put it inside near the pool with key entry? Or at least a dirty towel drop when using room towels. Overall, great stay and would go back.

Not long enough!

Perfect location! Right on the beach with many beachfront room options available. Staff was great at check-in to help us choose the most perfect room for us. Only downside is not enough time to stay longer! :-)
