Our local Beefsteak & Burgundy Club decided to have a meeting here following some good reports by locals that Salt Restaurant is really kicking goals. We weren't disappointed. The food was exceptional. We were the only group in the restaurant itself (14 of us) and had our own waitress, Indi (who was great) so we were well looked after. We...

Had a couple of things wrong with the room which when we checked out I told the lady at reception I just wish the people before us did the same....all in all we...

Fresh Fish of the Day was cooked to perfection. It melted in my mouth and the serving size was generous. The BEST hot chips I have had in my life. Salad isn't just your usual side dish either - it's amazing. Would highly recommend 😄

Had the most wonderful New Years Eve at Dolphin Heads Resort. The setting with the fairy lights and finger-food by the water was magic, the staff were so friendly, the musicain and his choice of songs was terrific and our kids loved the dancers with the fire! Recommend this gorgeous resort to everyone!

We have just had our family reunion Christmas at Dolphin Heads. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with family members staying from one night to four nights. Our room was ocean fronting and had been recently renovated as was most of the others. Yes, some of the rooms are a bit tired, but that goes back to the individual unit owners...
