Everything was excellent, except one of receptionist guys (very "busy", unfriendly and not willing to answer your questions). Plus room service was not so good. And beach could be more cleaner. In any case we loved the hotel, beach (next to hotel), dishes, entertainment and distance from Heraklion (20 minutes by bus)!

We stayed at the Dessole Dolphin Bay hotel in the middle of July. And it was one of our best holidays so far. The location is wonderful. Very close to the airport of Iraklion, but not noisy at all. The premises of the hotel are well maintained. The rooms are clean. But above of all the food was really fantastic....

We stayed at this hotel with our two sons aged 11 and 8 and we all loved it. The grounds were large, well kept, spotlessly clean and our family bungalow was beautiful with both a terrace and balcony. The hotel was great for our sons as they loved the large slides plus the main pool and a playground and a...

Don't confuse the newly renovated Dolphin Bay Hotel/Dessole with the old Dolphin Bay. It has been recently renovated. Driving down the entrance you will be greeted by gardens, palm trees with bungalows hidden in the trees. Smiling, happy faces. At first my mother and I booked two separate rooms with a sea view, then changed to the Bungalow, so my...

The room was spacious and the view from our room great. The staff was friendly and helpful. However the resort seems to not cater to ALL visitors even though it's an international hotel. We seemed to be the only English speaking American couple during our entire stay there, as most of the other visitors were Russian, and none of the...
