Club Hotel Dolphin is the place where fun takes precedence. The lush green gardens and the brilliant blues of the ocean serve as backdrops for action packed days in the tropical sun. At the same time, you could retreat with a book to a cozy alcove that is quiet and secluded, or laze on the beach with a frozen marguerita. In other words, Club Hotel Dolphin offers the best of both worlds within its palm fringed gardens. This sprawling hotel boasts of 96 deluxe main building rooms that are complete with AC, cable TV, DVD player, Tea/Coffee making facilities, hair dryer, piped music and telephone. Club Hotel Dolphin also offers its guests the option of staying in one of its 50 individual cottages that are additionally equipped with a mini bar. The discerning traveler on the other hand could opt to stay in one of the 02 suites at the hotel which additionally have a surround sound system, an in-room safe and a sitting area as well. Club Hotel Dolphin has the longest pool in Sri Lanka, and is the hub of all the action at the hotel. Guests are offered a wide choice of activities ranging from tennis, squash, volleyball and badminton to darts, archery, croquette and mini golf. The animation team keeps guests alive with activities such as water aerobics and a club dance to bingo nights, karaoke evenings, fire limbos and animation shows. For those who prefer something less pulsating, a relaxing spa treatment or a lazy afternoon by the quiet pool sounds perfect. Guests could also take an interesting tour of the Negombo churches that were built during the colonial period, or opt to visit Colombo on a shopping spree.
Spread across acres of palm and beach, close to the airport, the great fun beach hotel in Waikkal offers its guests the perfect holiday filled with fun and frolic. Whether its indulgence in succulent seafood, an action packed morning on the beach or a lazy afternoon by the quiet pool or at the spa, Club Hotel Dolphin is sure to serve your perfect cuppa.

Ok but not great

The hotel is wanting in many areas, some of it is outside of their control. Beach: it is photogenic but not suitable for swimming. There is a steep drop off with a strong undertow. The beach has red flags out to warn swimmers. The hotel does offer two nice pools each with their own bar. Security: the room I had was missing the security chain on the door and I had one of the rooms which opened on to the beach. I asked the managers about it and she said that it was removed because they had old ladies lock themselves in the room by accident! Oh well, not very safe for the rest of us. Room safe : there are no instructions on how to set the code and a member of staff gives you a generic code which works on every safe in the hotel Hotel Bar: a glass of wine was $9 and a local beer $5. The bar staff tried to serve me day old wine from an open bottle.....not cool! They also tried to charge me for a full bottle despite having ordered just a glass, I think this was as a result of poor training and not an attempt to defraud. taxi: a local taxi from the hotel to the airport costs approx 2500 rbs , the hotel staff were trying to push the hotel van at a cost of 5500rbs. Not cool! Food: buffets were excellent Wifi: available throughout the property but slow speed TV: I had a large room with a 30inch TV, it looked very small on the far wall from the bed Sat TV reception : poor, image often froze. Overall: ok but don't come from Europe unless the price is right, employees meant well. Humid and hot during summer months.
