      Rooms were roomy.

      I loved this hotel, the room was plenty big enough and very clean. I loved the pool and the outdoor bar on beach front. My room had a small kitchenette that was nice.

      The beach has sand-mowers!

      Choosing a 5-hour flight from Seattle, having opted for Puerto Vallarta too many times with dirty beaches, roving hawkers, crappy tequila, and a sense of get none of that at St. Pete's Beach. Staying at Dolphin Resort Hotel was inspiring with great sunrises & sunsets. The beds were cozy. Air conditioning works wonders. The beach bar is very reasonable. We enjoyed the presence of CVS, Publix, Dollar Tree, and a nice bakery across the street. We also enjoyed catching the Central Avenue Trolley (just a bus) across the street for trips into St. Pete's! Standard adult fare is $2.25 per ride or $5 for a day pass. My only complaint is that this hotel lacks ample towel racks for drying beach wear. Otherwise...the best location on the whole beach.

      If you want to waiste a lot of money to have the ugliest view, this is the place. It is loud, very old, pillow had stains. Room was uncomfortable, shampoo and soaps were never replaced, not a nice place at all. Resistant food is owful. I would never stay here again
