Hubby and I absolutely love the Dolphin Dunes, been our first stay there, but we felt right at home. All the little details that made us appreciate the place even more, from the staff right up to the management made us feel so at home. We will definitely be back soon and would highly advise it to anyone.

Andre was friendly on arrrival. We booked a garden view room and Andre gave us a sea view room with stunning ocean views. Friendly stuff. Delicious breakfast. The beach you can access from your room. Would love to stay there again.

Had the most incredible stay here. Andre, your Mom is a gem! A lovely comfortable stay with attention to detail. Lovely views, food, linen, location, staff and essence. Room 3 in which i stayed had the most incredible bath. Be sure to take a walk down to the beach. Will be back very soon!

We had a spacial, romantic room with phantastical view over the Indian Ocean. Lying in our bed we could spot the dolphins and whales, due to an overlooking window that started off the floor. We stayed in autumn (beginning of may) but -being water-lovers- we could still swim in the Ocean, right from our rooms. Walking to the village is... More

Seeing other good reviews of this place, I contacted the owner, who was happy to offer a nice room with a sea view. Confirmed this via email several times, however upon arrival, Andre said that he messed up and the room was booked by someone else - so he had to move me to another guest house down the road....

We stayed in a gorgeous and extremely comfortable garden room (that was bigger than most London flats) - with the ocean just steps away. Fantastic service. Excellent breakfast. Highly recommend staying here.

My wife and I have stayed in quite a few places around South Africa and Dolphin Dunes Guesthouse is definitely one of the stand out places we have been to. We most certainly will be going back and staying for longer. From the view from the room over looking the ocean to the breakfast and friendly service, it was all... More

We loved the location - a feeling of being away from it all, close enough to walk on a beautiful beach, yet just up the road from excellent restuarants. Room was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. Owners and staff discrete and professional - made us feel very special. Breakfast well above the norm. Excellent value for money.
