From the moment you arrive you'll feel like your enjoying the Cali lifestyle-the staff are excellent and accommodating. The food regardless of the menu (breakfast lunch or dinner) never disappoints. Something for everyone. Rooms were condominium size not hotel sized so are called suites but much larger. Lovely walking strolls with flowers and gorgeous ocean vistas. The around is area is quaint and nostalgic with beach town shops just a short stroll away.

We just checked out from a 2 night stop off here and All I can say is wow. The room was enormous. View was incredible. The grounds were clean. Our ocean view suite was so amazing we did not want to leave. Thank you for the gorgeous 2 nights in paradise. The restaurant Lido was very good as well. My children were as well impressed with the food. The beach and pool were wonderful and clean. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Complimentary valet was a nice feature too. The fully equipped kitchen in our room allowed us to make some snacks and breakfast one morning. If you have kids, and want some extra space to not feel crammed in a hotel this is the place for you. It's also romantic, quiet and just beautiful. Shopping in downtown San Luis Obispo is close and nice as well.

Construction workers renovating the room directly above us working until 10PM and woke us up at 5AM again each morning. Lousy night sleep considering we had to drive seven hours upon checkout. We complained to front desk after the first night, the crew seemed a little quieter upstairs the next day, but the construction continued until 10PM and again woke us up at 5AM. Considering I was paying over $700 per night I'm surprised they would put us in a room below the room under renovation project. Beautiful ocean view, very quaint, nice kitchen supplies, but overall value for Dollar was poor.

From the day I called the hotel to make a reservation, the staff was welcoming and inviting, as well as professional. We had a two bedroom Penthouse Suite that was over 2000 square feet with excellent accommodations: bed comfortable, top of the line kitchen with eat in area as well as a patio overlooking the beautiful water. The Valet Parking was nice perk and always timely! The bedrooms and den all had great HD TV's and bathrooms tub and shower in one and master had full jacuzzi updated tub for two and beautiful Italian marble shower. I am a big critique, hotel snob as some say, and I was most pleased in every way! The cleaning was impeccable and twice daily. Worth every penny for family, friends, and solo. There were activities, yoga and workout offerings as well as a 50% off wine night at Lido Restaurant but we did not have time to do it all. Heard the spa was great but missed out on that. The workout room was small but definitely acceptable in every way. The pool was gorgeous and inviting! This is a well kept property and my only complaint is that there was a heat wave and no air conditioning but opening the windows sufficed. Lastly, the wedding next door which kept made noise Friday morning as they set up a big tent for the Friday night wedding. Taking it down on Saturday was much more quiet. It was amazing place to stay so much so that I did not want to leave to go out! Coffee provided twice a day and amenities readily available and did I mention the washer and dryer with detergent pods to wash clothes?! LOVED THIS LUXURIOUS HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

From the moment we drove up the Dolphin Bay Resort and Spa, I knew it would be a wonderful stay. Upon entering the lobby there is a gorgeous view of the pool and ocean. We were warmly greeted by every staff member and had an easy check in. We began the stay with our family for the day and then stayed on as a couple overnight and the next day. In both respects, the Dolphin Bay and the Lido restaurant delivered. The property is the perfect blend for family fun and a romantic getaway. Our suite was stunning from the decor to our balcony overlooking the ocean. The bathtub in the master suite is by far the best I have ever experienced with room for two and plenty of bubbles! After spending the afternoon enjoying the pool we made an easy transition to the Lido restaurant for dinner. Our server Chris was excellent and attentive, the whole staff followed suit making sure we were comfortable and taken care of. The next day we relaxed poolside and was served lunch by a friendly staff member. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to receive spa services but were given a tour of the beautiful spa- next time we will make it a priority! If you are looking for a place to stay in the Pismo/Avila area, I cannot recommend the Dolphin Bay more highly. Kudos to the staff and management for making our short trip unforgettable, we can't wait to return!
