we stayed in a deluxe room which was cleaned daily , the staff were extremely pleasant, always a smile nothing was too much trouble and everyone friendly, the rooms were spacious and bright,the food tasty and always replaced when empty the only moan about the food was the a la carte meals not included which would prove to be quite expensive, drinks plentiful overall a lovely hotel a word of warning the cottages are very dated and very tired they are going to be revamped later in the year which they are in desperate need.we take away lots of good memories and thoroughly enjoyed our stay,

We stayed at the Club Hotel Dolphin for 2 weeks and the accomodation we had was one of the beach side bungalows and although a little tired the location could not have been better especially as we were near the quiter of the 2 on-site pools with its own bar.
The food was quite varied with different menu's every day so there was something for everyone and was of a good standard and one evening we even had locally caught fresh lobster so no complaints and if you like curry's there is also a range of them at all meal times as well as the other foods.
The entertainment is put on by the staff but is of a good standard.
We also went on a 2 day trip booked through our local agent Asian Adventures and we had a personal tour with just the 2 of us in an air condition car which was good value at

We stayed for ten nights at this hotel after doing a five day of Sri Lanka. As soon as we arrived the staff couldn't have been more helpful, we filled in our arrival forms & within 15 minutes our suitcases were being taken to our rooms.The rooms in the hotel were very clean and spacious and we had a lovely view from the 1st floor.

The food was rather repetitive but always looked & tasted good.

The entertainment during the day was well organised but the evenings were rather poor.Had we not been exhausted from our first five days we would have been bored!

Although the hotel is a bit remote the staff really make up for this.

We stayed in the bungalows, ours was right on the beach. It was very basic but clean. Our friends stayed in the main hotel, which was nicer, but our view could not be beaten.

The food was ok if you like anything, if your a fussy eater then I don't think this is for you. The desserts are really gorgeous too many to choose from.

We had the most wonderful fortnight at the Club Hotel Dolphin. We were three generations together, and all of us found our place with the activities, food and facilities, which were creative, friendly and fun.

Even the 'oldies' in our group found themselves playing minigolf and bowls! The kids became 'best friends' with most of the animation team, and we scarcely saw them. The hotel also served as a good base from which to see more of this wonderful island.

We shunned the larger organized tours and traveled with Benedict, proprietor of the ASDA store along the beach, in an air-conditioned minivan. For
