U.S. News Review

The beauty of the Dolphin Bay Resort & Spa in Pismo Beach goes undisputed. The backdrop against the jagged Pacific Ocean coastline is breathtaking yet soothing. Guests praise the extraordinarily spacious rooms with their full kitchens, large windows, dining rooms and private terraces or patios. The on-site Lido Restaurant also garners good reviews for its gorgeous ocean backdrop and delectable use of local ingredients. And if lounging by the saline pool or along the nearby beach doesn't fully remove the stress of everyday life, book an appointment at the in-house spa, which offers everything from massages to mani-pedis. Most recent visitors say that they feel lucky to have found a quality resort with such incredible accommodations, excellent service and easy beach access, all for a reasonable price. You can find this property north of downtown Pismo Beach along Highway 1.
