Good for the price

KakiBW (Ellicott City, Maryland) on Jan 29, 2023

I liked this hotel. We had a beautiful room with a very comfortable bed. The choice of restaurants on site was nice. Only negatives were we did not have our room serviced one day, and valet parking took a long time every time we retrieved our car.

Great Location, but Noisy Afternoons

Christraveller10 (Oldham, United Kingdom) on Jan 29, 2023

Location/Transport The Dolphin Hotel was an ideal location for visiting the Disney Word parks: - Epcot (15-20 mins walk/boat ride - every 15mins) - Hollywood Studios (20 mins walk/boat ride - every 15mins) - Magic Kingdom (bus to Ticket & Transportation centre every 15 mins from hotel) - Animal Kingdom (bus - every 15mins) In addition to the above, we also took advantage of buses to/from the parks to/from the neighbouring Disney hotels (Boardwalk/Yacht club). Food and Drink The hotel provided 2 bottles of water per day, which was really convenient. A fridge was available in the room for water, milk etc. The shop at the hotel sold provisions, but we used the General Store on the Boardwalk for milk (for tea/cereals). A number of restaurants on site, but we only used the Fountain restaurant, which was relatively good value. The Boardwalk deli is close by, and we used this to share a bagel/sandwich between us. Facilities/Mini-Golf The pool facilities and beach chairs are shared with the Swan hotel. Nice and relaxing. Also, across the road by the Swan Reserve is the Miniature Golf, which is free for Disney park ticket holders. Great fun! There is also a small arcade but we didn't use this. Housekeeping Generally good, but one day they arrived at 10:30pm when we were in bed! I've never known anything like it! Noise/Sleep I have to knock a star off as there was constant loud noises outside our room for the duration of our stay as cranes were used to refurbish balconies. We had treated ourselves to a balcony to relax after busy mornings, but we couldn't take advantage of this. Very disappointing. We were even left waiting on arrival for our room as they wanted to make sure we had the quietest room available! However generally quiet at night and we slept well. Room The room had two small 'double' beds and only 1 bedside table between them, which was inconvenient. The safe was big enough for documents and small items only. The small fridge was useful.
