Stayed for a week in early September. About 15 minute taxi ride away from ferry port at Ermopoulis, approx 15-20 euros, cost seems to vary between these points. The hotel is built into a rock and if you are unlucky to be allocated one of the further away rooms, it is two separate elevators to get there. We originally were assigned almost one of the further rooms away from the main hotel and pool area, and the management kindly relocated us to a much more convenient room on the first day with no problem. This room (located in L block) had a good view of the pool area and the beach, from the balcony. The balcony is in the shade from mid-morning onwards. The room itself was large and clean, but felt a little dated. However, it was very clean and the bathroom had a bath with over-shower, which was clean and good hot water. The room was well equipped with fridge, tv and tea and coffee making facilities. The pool is very pleasant, a large pool, great for swimming in, with a small area to one side for a children's water slide. You can get pool towels as often as you want from the poolside area. The big plus for the hotel is you are literally on the beach (right by the pool area) and the waters are very shallow for many metres out. At first we thought the town of Galissas would be quiet, but there was a good choice of bars and restaurants, including on the beach, to choose from, plus minimarkets and a pharmacy. We had a day out in the next bay round, called Kini, which is a worth a visit. We did not eat in the hotel restaurant except for breakfast, but only because we wanted to explore a bit. The breakfast was adequate, perhaps more for continental than British taste, but here was plenty of choice and some cooked options. The staff were friendly and helpful.

We loved our stay at the Dolphin Bay Hotel. We stayed in the two bedroom suite which was so clean, fresh, cool and comfortable. It was very spacious with two separate bedrooms and a living room. It had a smaller balcony connected to one of the bedrooms and a huge balcony with a full patio set connected to the other bedroom and living room. Both balconies looked out over the beautiful beach and out to sea. Rooms had everything you could need like aircon, tea and coffee making facilities, mini fridge and lots of storage space for clothes.
We went half board and although the meals are served buffet style, the food was so good and fresh. There was lots of variety and the staff are constantly refilling everything. The half board option was not much more than bed and breakfast and it was worth it.
The pool area is lovely, very clean with plenty of beds for everyone, we only made it to the pool at gone 10am some days and still managed to get enough space and beds for four of us. You can order drinks and food from the waiters at the pool and have them served or you can go and sit at a table in the pool side restaurant. Again the food here was lovely and huge portions - we learnt after the first day to order a few dishes to share are they were too big for one each.
All the staff are friendly and helpful and thankfully spoke very good English. Nothing was too much trouble.
We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday on the beautiful island of Syros.

Nice views , polite staff, good breakfast, sandy beach. Cleanliness is satisfactory .Those who need to use a car inside the hotel grounds will face a challenge. Completely inappropriate for handicapped visitors. Rooms on the ground floor are not quiet. A lot of very young children and infants.

We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Dolphin Bay Hotel and found it to be very disappointing. We travelled as a group of 3 adults and 5 teenagers. The bedrooms were not clean and all 4 rooms had issues with leaks in the bathrooms. We had to ask numerous times for the issues to be resolved. Daily cleaning fo the rooms is not standard due to COVID unless you ask. The week previous we stayed at another hotel on the island and the rooms were cleaned daily and everything was kept santised and immaculate so not sure why this hotel could not follow the same rules. The lifeguard at the pool constantly blew her whistle at the slightest thing, making this a very frustrating experience for all. No balls or inflatable allowed in the pool! The staff were not overly helpful and was never once greeted by the hotel manager despite her having a daily presence. I will not be returning.

The hotel was great and tottaly recommended. It overlooks the Galissas beach and bay. The rooms are very big, with lots of light and (the majority) with great view as it is amphitheatrically built. It offers a lot of amenities especially for families (kids pool, water slide, kids movies and free children entertainment on daily basis). The stuff is very friendly and efficient and the breakfast very good. The only two things I didn't t like were the absence of fly screen in the French doors (there is one in the bathroom window) and the absence of a baby changing table in the hotel shared toilets (in the main building and in the swimming pool). Especially in the toilets below the reception, there is certainly enough space to add a small changing table). Everything else was fantastic.

This is a perfect holiday resort if you want to be away from hectic life. Lovely pool area within seconds of the beautiful beach. There is a bar in the hotel but also several within a few hundred yards. I would stay again as the rooms where spotless and the staff mainly very pleasant. Breakfast not exciting and after one week you realized the food rota which was not brimming with variety. Sadly the senior breakfast staff limited their charm and conversations to 'only a selected few' !!

We stayed at Dolphin hotel for almost 10 days during August 2020.
Everything was great.
The service is amazing and the hotel rooms just perfect.
The hotel has a big swimming pool great for kids.

My son loved the place , it is totally recommended for family holidays.

The beach nearby (Galissas) is breathtaking and you can watch amazing sunsets. The capital of Syros (Ermoupolis) is only 15 mins by car.

Overall, a great and fantastic hotel in the beautiful island of Syros. Totally recommended

First time in Syros and we chose this hotel!
Its location right overlooking Galissa Beach was excellent - nice pool deck and sun deck area had a short flight of stairs and a hip across a quiet road and you are in the sea !

Our room was very generous size , including the bathroom -
We were in highest building - however they had staff take our luggage to room and we simply had a few short walks to taking two elevators . Our room
Had an amazing view and huge deck .
Bed was comfy . Included breakfast buffet was average to good .

We absolutely would stay again and hope to next year.

Only negative was poor wifi to non existent wifi everywhere on grounds and none in your room .

I have been working in travel industry for the last 20 years. This summer I had to find a hotel for Canadian school kids in Syros (3 groups of 30 to 80 kids) and I contacted Dolphin Bay. We have 4 islands in the program and Syros with Dolphin Bay was the best choice ! Kids loved the huge swiming pool, the food and the beach which is just in front of the hotel. I loved the amazing collaboration I had with this hotel. They made my life much easier. Whatever we needed for the groups we had it. The service was exceptional and the staff were always helpful and smiley 😃. I highly recommend Syros as destination and Dolphin Bay as the best place to stay. Thank You all for the excellent collaboration.

Not as a matter of course. But I believe they would do so if there was sufficient demand. The taxi from the port to hotel only takes about 20 mins and is not expensive.
