Dolphin Bay Hotel

Recent guest reviews

We have been here for 2 weeks in August 2018. The resort is the most family oriented. Our Superior room was with sea view, large with nice decoration. The resort offers great swimming pool with water side for adults and children with free ice cream all day. The sandy beach in front of the hotel is impressive large and clean. The main restaurant offers excellent buffet for breakfast and dinner with free drinks. Staff is very helpful and polite ready to help you any time. See you all next year.

If you visit Syros, you should stay there. It feels like you where there some days before. The hospitality, the kind stuff, the excellent breakfast, the very clean areas and rooms and bathrooms. For family’s with children between 3-10 years it’s a must go destination. O wonder why the word “family” on the title of the hotel! It worth it

The hotel itself continues to be excellent, largely because of its location overlooking Galissas beach. Until last year when we last visited it, its seaside restaurant by the beach was also very good. This year, sadly, its seaside restaurant was terrible despite its good location. Its management appears to have changed and it was not for the better. Many of the staple items in the menu (such as taramosalata or even plain old french fries) had been removed. When we asked for a side of mayonnaise, we were given a snow-white fluffy concoction that had nothing to do with mayonnaise and resembled whipped cream. When we complained, an irate middle age man who said he was the manager told us that "this is how we make it here". One of us then got up and went to the nearby market and brought a jar of mayonnaise. That manager then became even more rude and told us not to use it. He then went inside and came back with some real mayonnaise that he said he had just made and that was fine. The experience made us vow never to go back. This is sad because, for many years, that same restaurant had been consistently good and had consistently served excellent food.

generally a good hotel in a reasonable price which is ideal for families with children. big clean rooms with nice hotel facilities such us pool, etc i book a room with half board so in package lunch was included. food even if it wasn't bad needs improvement. if u book superior room with sea view then you are going to enjoy a spacious balcony with great view.

We had a blast during our stay in dolphin bay. There are so many different things to do in this resort. We are tennis lovers and finding a hotel in Syros with a tennis court has unreal. Everyone is very kind especially at the restaurant and at the reception. Highly recommended

Wonderful hotel, rooms pretty simple, clean, with spacious balkony. The pool is great with a fast water slide, free popcorn and ice cream for the kids all day, they couldn't get enough! About the staff, very very nice and helpful, I didn't feel well on the second day of the vacation, the hotel's manager, drove me to see a doctor in the city, I don't believe there are allot of others who would do the same. Also, the front desk staff always was kind and informative. The wifi sucks! Overall we had a great time

We visited the hotel for 10 days during August.The room had a perfect view and was clean and spacious. Food was delicious but with a small variety.Especially breakfast was a bit repetitive.Hotel staff was really polite especially in the restaurant! Swimming pool was clean but very difficult to find sunbed.The worst part was that we were obliged to pay for sunbed in the sea of Gallissas even though the hotel owns these sunbeds.From my side this is unacceptable for the guests of the hotel. Thank you

We visited Dolphin Bay in July with family. This hotel is an excellent choice for families with kids. There's a large swimming pool with a small waterslide for kids and a lifeguard. The swimming pool area is usually busy but we never had problems finding lounge chairs. The staff at the bar were very friendly and helpful, and the prices for food and drinks were relatively reasonable. Also of note that all kids could have unlimited ice cream and popcorn throughout the day (and until the pool bar's closing time). The staff, in general, are the highlight of this hotel. They were all excellent, in all areas, pool bar, reception, restaurant, bar, cleaning staff, everyone was extremely polite and made our vacation very enjoyable. On top of this, in our case, we were a bit unhappy with our room when we arrived and the staff at the reception made arrangements immediately and moved us to a different room (which gave us a great view of the Galissas Bay). A+ for service! The rooms are fairly large for a couple or for a family of 3. They're rather tight for a family of 4, so if your kids are a bit bigger you may want to look at the option to reserve 2 rooms if you want to be more comfortable. The beds are super comfortable, especially for Greek standards. We've been to many 4 and 5-star hotels in Greece and the beds in this hotels were amongst the best we've slept on. The rooms are very clean (and they're thoroughly cleaned every day), and even though we did notice some scuffs on some furniture, and some rust in the bathroom, overall the room was in good condition. The food at the restaurant (breakfast and dinner in our case) is probably mediocre and rather repetitive - which is to be expected in this type of hotels - but the restaurant staff were very attentive and friendly. Overall there is enough variety for anyone to find something decent to eat, and for the price we paid for our rooms and half-board option we had no complaints whatsoever. The overall value was excellent. One thing noted by other guests too is the issue with the Wi-Fi. The quality was very poor and in most areas it was impossible to even get a reception at all. This is something that can be easily fixed and I'm sure the management is on top of this. Overall, this hotel is an excellent choice and great value for families and couples alike. It's very close to the very nice sandy beach of Galissas (just a few steps away), it offers a nice swimming pool, decent food options and an overall great value. What makes this hotel stand out is its staff, each one of them offered excellent services while we were there. Also of note that several of the staff were University students working at the hotel during their summer vacations. Kudos to the hotel management for giving opportunities to young kids to earn some money and also some much-needed experience in the field.

We spend on this summer at the dolphin bay hotel a pleasant and exciting family vacation. The hotel location was wonderful, the room was comfortable and very clean with a magnificent and breathtaking view!!! The restaurant staff was always very kind and polite, they took care of everything to make our meals very pleasant. Generally all of the hotel staff have a great attitude of professionalism and are all the time there for your convenience. But we had various problems with the WiFi connection, truly the wasn’t any connection at all! At the end the stay at dolphin bay hotel was unforgettable. Hope to visit the hotel and the beautiful island of Syros soon! Spyros Ziogas’s family!!!!

This hotel has captured my heart! The spot that it is situated is just unique. A green oasis hospitable ‘village’ for relaxing vacations. Our room was so comfortable, very clean and the view at the Galissas beach was just breathtaking! The staff was extremely kind, very helpful everywhere, at our disposal any time to offer their services and always with a wide smile! The sandy golden beach is literally at your feet and we just couldn’t get enough enjoying the sunsets! Congratulations to the Management and to all the staff- you surely made our vacations unforgettable & we are definitely coming back again!!!
