I've stayed at the Dolphin every year for the last few years and now wouldn't think of staying anywhere else on the island. The Dolphin has both rooms and appartments. I've stayed in both and they are both great. Rooms have air conditioning for a small extra charge but we never found the need to use it. The communal kitchen... More

I stayed with a friend at the Blue Dolphin Apts. during Christmas for two weeks. It's a small place, very clean, comfortable, and close to everything: a great beach (Dover Beach), restarurants and bars. It's in a residential neighbourhood, so the walk to the beach is approx. 4 minutes and to the Gap an additional minute. We had a great... More

I stayed at Iris's Blue Dolphin for 7 days in early December. Iris and her son bent over backwards to assist me in every way they could. The room was exactly what I requested, the AC was freezing cold and the internet worked well (the internet price of $10 per week, shocked me, I thought it was $10 per day).... More

I stayed at the Dolphin Inn for 4 nights and was very happy with it. It is a little bit of a walk to the Gap but there are a few other bars and places to eat close by. It seems to be more in a "locals" area rather than a touristy area, which was ok w/ me. The family... More

I stayed here with friends during the week of my birthday and it really made the trip.

I stayed here with some friends in March and couldn't have asked for anything better. Kitchen was spotless, bedrooms well equiped and also very clean and comfortable. Iris is a real life superwoman and does a fantastic job of making everyone's stay memorable. Will def go back and would highly recommend to anyone :-)
