Dolphin Bay Resort & Spa Hotel Review

: This high-end hotel and condominium complex stands above the other lodging options at Shell Beach, just north of Pismo Beach. All of the accommodations are in apartment-style residences. Each residence has either one or two bedrooms, separate dining and living room areas, and a fully-equipped kitchen. The furnishings are top-notch, from the double-paned windows to thick wool carpeting, marble floors, and granite countertops. Indulgent amenities include imported Italian linens, flat-screen plasma TVs with stereo surround sound, high-speed Internet access, CD player clock radios, terrycloth robes, and in some suites, a gas fireplace and whirlpool tub. The d├ęcor is contemporary American with soothing color schemes. There's twice-daily housekeeping, a heated outdoor swimming pool, and guest laundry facilities in addition to valet laundry service. The hotel concierge can arrange activities from wine tasting tours to golf tee times, and can make reservations for the on-site day spa or Italian restaurant. Business groups and wedding parties can disturb the otherwise relaxing ambience, however, and the management is unpredictable, so don't expect exceptional service.
