Dolphin Beach review
We had a wonderful stay at Dolphin Beach Hotel over Christmas and New Year. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. The Blow Fish Restaurant which is on the hotel complex is great with fresh fish every day. the bar staff were also excellent and introduced us to several new cocktails. The Beach Cabana accommodation was spacious and provided direct access to the sand dunes and beach The hotel gardens were immaculately kept It would be useful to hire a vehicle as the closest other shops and restaurants are approximately 1km away. The larger shopping center is also approximatley 1km away but it is difficult to access by foot due to a busy dual carriageway. Due to the season it was difficult to find taxis for short distances although Uber was available The hotel location is excellent for Kite Surfing, access to the wine region and central Cape Town was a 30-60 minute drive
