My fiance and I spent 11 days at Dolphin Inn from Jan 26 to Feb 6/15. This is our second trip together to Barbados, although I was married to a Bajan for 20 years and know the island quite well. The Inn was recommended to us by the owner of the last place we stayed at and then after reading... More

This small guesthouse is a good bit of a walk from the beach. The small cottages out back face a swamp. I was there during an especially rainy season and the mosquitoes made sitting on the little balcony impossible. I found the owner to be aloft and unfriendly with a quick "no" to most requests. During my 10 day stay,... More

I recommend the Dolphin Inn for the location, value for money and hospitality of the owner Iris! The Inn is just a 3 minute walk from Dover Beach, super quaint, clean and has everything you need to enjoy your stay in the lovely Barbados!

“If you choose to stay in one of the four apartments, try to book one either end of the bank of four. Leaves with a neighbor on only one side. Nice when you choose to chill-out on the rear deck.”
