Guests Say It Best

Special Place

We stumbled upon Dolphin Bay Resort over ten years and it's become an annual pilgrimage. Amazing rooms with full kitchens, a great pool, secluded beaches, and a top-notch restaurant. The staff is amazing and they always go out of their way to make your trip special. During these unsettling times, it's always nice to see the diligence the staff puts in to make the guests feel safe! See you next year Dolphin Bay!

Gorgeous Resort Right Above the Pacific

Book an oceanfront unit on the third or fourth floor; it's worth every penny! Our two-bedroom, two-bath unit was very large, beautifully furnished and impeccably maintained… The Lido Restaurant is outstanding! Room service has a huge menu. Staff at this resort are very friendly and more than competent. Absolutely the best place to stay in the Pismo Beach area.
- Dennis H.

Fabulous Small Spa

I am a neighbor to the Dolphin Spa and I love it. It is like being on vacation when I walk in there. Lovely waiting area that smells "spa" wonderful. Cute boutique with unique items to buy. I have had four different massage therapists and have also done a facial. All treatments were excellent and the greeting staff could not be nicer. It is a local gem and if you are on vacation, it is a must do.
- Elaine S.

Very Nice Resort, Worth the Stay

We spent three nights in a large ocean-view one-bedroom suite with incredible resort amenities and beautiful views. From the moment we arrived, the staff was very friendly and accommodating and went out of their way to make sure our every need was being met. We truly enjoyed our stay and will certainly visit this resort again in the future
