With two students at Cal Poly SLO, we are frequent visitors of the area. Our #1 choice of places to stay Is Dolphin Bay. The service is fabulous, the rooms are beautiful, the views are breathtaking, and the restaurant (Lido) and spa are definite musts. Located 15 minutes from the campus and downtown SLO, and 5 minutes from Avila Beach, it is perfectly located. The rooms are all suites (one or two bedrooms), with full kitchens and living rooms (including a sleeper couch). They are even pet-friendly! If you are planning a special trip to the central coast, this is the place to stay!

We've stayed at DB Resort before and always enjoyed it. Great room (we had a suite), great views of the ocean, fine furnishings and amenities (our coffee maker died and was replaced immediately), good beach access, and very comfortable overall. The staff are attentive and very polite. We haven't dined at the onsite restaurant, but will one of these days. I'm sure we'll be back.

I can't rave enough about our stay at Dolphin Bay! From the seamless check-in to our sad departure. The best consolation was knowing that we would return as soon as possible. Pismo has always been our "go-to" destination for a quick getaway and staying at DB is the best excuse to do just that and enjoy the beautiful central coast. Everyone you'll encounter on your stay will be professional yet friendly. I appreciate that housekeeping checks on a good time to come in, and leaves your rooms immaculate. The server at the pool will keep your glass full and any request will be met with a smile. The Lido restaurant offers top notch, fresh dishes. We know... we ate all of our meals there and never left the resort. The only hiccup was on the Friday night of our stay they hosted a wedding and the restaurant service was very slow, in fact we wondered if we may have been forgotten about several times. This was not the servers fault as she was obviously on overload with so much going on. The F&B manager could have had more help on duty that night. We have 2 small children and our 4 year old fell asleep before getting his meal. One suggestion would be to wait for a table in the front of the restaurant or inside and not in the overflow area on the side. Daytime lunch service was excellent and highly recommended. Our server was Brett and everything was seamless. A meal is always more enjoyable when the service and good and the food even better. Thank you DB for a memorable trip.

This resort is amazing. We stayed in an oceanfront suite and the view and amenities were fantastic. We traveled with our dog and the hotel was so accommodating. We were able to dine with her in the Lido restaurant outside. Every employee from the Valet, Front Desk Receptionist, Cleaning Crew, Restaurant Servers were so friendly and helpful. Everything about our stay was 5 star and we will be back!

We enjoyed an ocean front 1 bedroom suite with a balcony that overlooked the nearby Pacific, close enough to hear the sound of the surf and feel the energy. The facilities are extraordinary, the staff was cordial and welcoming and the room and premises was clean and well taken care of. Room rates are high end. Unlike many hotels, parking can be self done or by valet and at no charge. Taxes and resort fees add significantly to the total charge. The Lido restaurant is well known for fine cuisine although we did not eat there.
