    A bit tired but great location and good option for Disney

    The Dolphin is located a stones throw from all the Disney parks with easy access by bus or boat - this is unquestionably THE big win when staying here… location, location, location…. The hotel itself is ‘fine’ - it’s clean and has great facilities (pools, Wi-Fi, restaurants) etc. It is a bit tired and the rooms and hallways could do with a bit of sprucing up, but you spend so little time in the room it wasn’t an issue for us. One watch out to be aware of is the surprise “resort fee” which annoyed me to find on our bill upon checkout. An unexpected $40/day charge for….just being there….When questioned I was told this was to cover things like wi-fi, gym, park transportation….(I thought that’s what we had paid to stay in the hotel for!) If you’re on vacation to Disney this is a really convenient option.

    Comfortable but dated

    Rooms need to be updated but the bed was comfortable and the a/c really worked well. Didn’t get the room that I requested and they didn’t follow up on my request for a change. Shula’s was outstanding. Steak was perfect and the bartender, Jeff, was very knowledgeable about the menu and his recommendations were spot on.

    Bravo Dolphin 🐬

    The Dolphin resort is an awesome place to center your vacation. It is beautiful, contemporary, spacious and offers a variety of dining and activity options. We had the pleasure of celebrating my son’s sixteenth birthday and totally enjoyed our stay. From administration to front desk to valet to housekeeping to servers, we were treated with kindness, professionalism and personable. Dolphin resort team members who made our stay so very special included Margot , Ashley S, Brandon, Abby, Mouhsinne, Dalberto and Sydney. Thank you and we look forward to returning in July.

    Older but Convenient Hotel

    This is a nice but dated hotel. The rooms are average but a little dated. The carpeting is badly worn but the room was clean. The hotel is convenient to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. There is a boat with good service and also walking to the parks is a possibility. When there is a thunder storm in the area they do not run the boats. Bus service to the parks is very spotty and poor. After the first day of no boat service because of a thunder storm we decided to drive to the parks. Waiting for the bus took over an hour which convinced us to drive the other times service was down. The hotel is lower priced than the adjacent Disney yacht club but beware, there is a $40 per night resort fee which is a rip-off and a $32 per night parking fee. In summary, we enjoyed our stay despite transportation problems.

    Just checked in the hotel

    Beautiful hotel. Can’t speak to anything yet as we just checked in the hotel. We are eating at Blue Zoo restaurant in this hotel. We ordered the angus beef and it was very good. The grandsons ordered pizza and fish and chips. Daughter ordered Butler steak. Her steak was over cooked, as she wanted medium done but she ate it anyways.
