I recently stayed in room #4 with my boyfriend and had a terrific time. I found Iris to be a helpful and welcoming hostess, as well as a very interesting person. I will definitely return, as I enjoyed myself immensely. We had lots of space in the fridge and cupboards to store our goodies from the grocery, the neighborhood was...

This was my second stay in Apartment 4 at the Blue Dolphin Apartments, and like last year,I had an absolutely wonderful time this past February. The apartment is quiet, set back from the street in a little garden, and boasts a huge terrace with a table and a chaise longue under your very own coconut tree! I sometimes spent the...

Our first trip to Barbados for winter warmth and sunshine. Found the Dolphin Inn featured in the Saturday Guardian Travel supplement, our favourite weekly newsread. Stayed in Room 2 and later in Room 2 for three weeks in all and just loved it. Well-equipped large kitchen to share, maintained daily by Iris, our most efficient Swiss hostess. The spacious communal...

I returned to the Dolphin Inn at Christmas with two friends. I've stayed there many times before. I have experienced both sides of a trip to Barbados having previously also stayed in hotels. I think the previous reviewer who talks about proportionality has hit the nail on the head. Much has been said about how lovely and clean the Dolphin...

If you are looking for a cheap, clean place with a good location, dolphin inn is a good choice. I enjoyed the use of the communal kitchen, bed was comfy and firm, and dolphin-themed decor. Some suggestions for simple improvements that would make a big difference: - Replace fluorescent lighting with softer, warmer bulbs. In the kitchen and in Room...
