We reserved a partial ocean view room, for a last minute long weekend getaway. The assigned room turned out to be on the North side of the North building. Not exactly sunny in February. Fortunately, Melissa and her front desk colleague, managed to move us into another room, ground floor, facing west. This made all the difference for our stay, and we very much appreciated the effort. The room was pleasent and comfortable, but is was the staff that really helped our stay be more enjoyable.

Surprised my gf on her birthday here with a two bedroom suite. We've stayed in the one bedroom before but the two bedroom was amazing! I only booked the two bedroom because it has a bathtub and boy was it worth it. The floor plan was incredible so much space and the views are to die for! Everything about this resort is top notch. The staff are great and welcoming, excellent restaurant and the pool and jacuzzi are one of my favorites. I hate cold water and the pool is heated! This is hands down the best hotel on the central coast. Highly recommend!!!

From check in to checkout this hotel is far above the rest. I stayed here a few weekends ago with my wife and 3-1/2 year old and what an experience. We have stayed at several other hotels in the Pismo area and this one is truly the best by far. The room was amazing with what felt like our own private ocean view. The room also had a full kitchen with pots, pans, etc. We were able to make breakfast one morning. We also ate at and ordered room service from the hotel restaurant Lido. The food was very good and the service was excellent. I have stayed all over the world and in my opinion what you get for the price here is a bargain. This is now our favorite hotel!!!!

For the second time, I bought the Dolphin Bay package which included a one night stay and dinner at the Lido at the Cal Poly RPTA Dinner/Auction and again, was not disappointed. We enjoyed a complimentary fruit plate with wine in our room overlooking the ocean. Chef's dinner at the Lido was, as usual, fabulous as was the wait staff. In addition to our stay and dinner, I reserved two 90-minute deep tissue massages at the spa. What a luxury. Steven and Julia, our massage therapists were professional and highly skilled. We recommend them highly. Thank you for your donation to the RPTA fundraiser and for making our stay so enjoyable.

My wife and I traveled up the coast for our Anniversary. We stayed at the Dolphin Bay Resort on our way home and we are so glad that we did. This is an incredibly beautiful resort. Everyone that we came in contact with was so welcoming and professional. Our room was spectacular!! I highly recommend that you reserve the Ocean Front Suites. A very special thank you goes out to the General Manager Erica, who personally made sure that our Anniversary was incredibly special. Erica's attention to detail was absolutely amazing!! Thank you Erica and we will be back soon!!
