          Overall, everything worked in dolphin. Food was absolutely fantastic and the staff was accommodating. Slightly pushy with the tours but overall a great place to stay! I'd say definitely keep it as an option during your visit

          Challets are very small and not good equipment. Nice view from the tarace only but beach under dirty and a lot stones. For that money you can find a lot nice places on the north part of Vilanculos. Don't use dolphin show safarii. Terrible experience!More
