Last minute search for a hotel in the beach and booked the dolphin. Easy access to the beach and a water rinse off hose readily available right off the beach. The pool was clean and the staff very friendly.

Great place!
We had a great experience! Perfect for the price! Of course the facility was older, but it is well kept, very clean,and the staff were super friendly and helpful. The only issue we had was the pillows were kind of hard, but hey, some people like hard pillows! We would definitely stay afain!
