Beautiful place with great view (the luxury room) and ferry kindly hostess. Pitty that the pool water was to cold. Short distance to the city. Breakfast was fine. Free coffee and cherry on the room...

Thank you for your nice review. We would love to see you back in summer when the pool will be warm so you can have a nice swim. It is heated by solar and in the winter we struggle to keep the water warm.

Good day Kevern. My sincere apologies that you had a bad experience, but you did not stay at Dolphin View Guesthouse. You made a booking through Expedia for a self-catering house at Marina Martinique and you only came to fetch the keys at Dolphin View....More
