"First visit to the Disney World, Orlando "
My objective was to spend 3 days in the Disneyworld Orlando staying in a SPG resort with my family. Therefore location of hotel & transportation to hop between the different Disney attractions are very important. Overall, I must say the entire trip & stay were good. Location is pretty convenient, both public buses & ferries are easily accessible.. & they are all free of charge. Hotel surroundings are nice, pleasant & clean... Room is ok & neat but small. Views from my room was reasonably good - view of the lakeside. Plus, there is a Disneyworld counter at the hotel lobby, where we were able to get our entry passes & brief explanation of the different parks & tips of getting around conveniently. On my second day, we returned our rooms at around 5pm, surprised to see that both the rooms were not cleaned yet at that hour. While taking a short nap, the cleaner came to our room offered to clean but I requested to come back after an hour later. When we returned to our room at ~10pm ish, tired,... even more surprised to see that nothing was touched or cleaned. A plastic bag stuffed with the bottled water, shampoo, shower bath, towels were all just left on the table top. As a Platinum member (Ambassador level), I was a little disappointing. I was actually expecting better services than this... at least, removed all the used towels, removed all the trashes, maybe a quick makeup of the room a little. Well, this is a reputable hotel, rated for 4/5-Star, certainly have to be much better than this.
The good: good location for EPCOT and DHS. Beautifully and recently renovated. Comfortable bedding. Good pool facilities. You can use SPG points to stay on property for a fraction of the cost. The less-than-good: resort and parking fees grow by the year and take away some of the SPG point advantage. Very crowded during big conventions, though it handles the crowds better than the Swan. Too few elevators (long waits). Though many people complain about how big Disney hotels can be (and what they usually mean is how far you must walk from the bus to your room), the Dolphin takes that to another level. Very long (and uninteresting) hallways. This is Vegas-casino big. Overall: good value for a modern, "new", on-property resort. Would recommend.
"Beautiful and clean.."
My family and I (3 adults and 3 teens) booked two adjoining rooms with a door in between. Since this was a special trip for my daughter's sweet sixteen, I wanted the Epcot Illuminations fireworks view but there was only one available. So I booked a balcony room with a Resort View instead. We didnt think much of it because we had read the reviews about how luxurious the Swann was but it was booked solid. We arrived at night. There were eager valets and bell hops that jumped to help with little prompting as soon as we arrived. Walking into the main entrance, look up! You will see the night universe on the ceiling and might be lucky enough to see a shooting star pass by! Then as you advance further into the main lobby, you are greeted by a beautiful dolphin fish fountain, a gorgeous ceiling to floor large glass chandelier, and the fun vibes and laughter of smartly dressed mature men and women enjoying a cocktail at the lobby bar. Plush couches throughout. The front desk check in was prompt and without a hitch. Now on to the rooms....We opened the door to one of the rooms, drew back the curtain to the sliding glass door....We had a balcony from which we could see the lake, the Disney Boardwalk...and behind all that... THERE WAS THE BEAUTIFUL EPCOT BALL, LIT UP IN BLUE. I literally almost cried. Both rooms had balconies and the same view!! My daughter was amazed and I felt like I had hit the jackpot. I cant tell you how appreciative I was that the powers that be at the Dolphin made one of her dreams come true. Each balcony had seating for up to three people; the balconies were not connecting but side by side. The rooms themselves appeared tastefully decorated with plush headboards, white soft bedding, down pillows. There is a long dresser in the middle with a large flat screen tv. If you have a subscription to Hulu or Netflix, you are allowed to just sign in on the tv. Lamps with white shades throughout that give off crisp white lighting. The lamp on the nightstand allows for two traditional phone chargers and one usb cord charger. There are additional chargers throughout the room and two more usb chargers in the coffee/tea area. You are provided a coffe maker with two servings of Pike's Place Starbucks coffee and two tea bags. Two Dasani bottled waters are given daily free of charge to Starwood Preferred Guests (sign up and rack up points through Marriott or Sheraton). The bathroom was split into sink area and tub/shower toilet area with a door in between. The shower/toilet area was quite snug! (but doable) We did not hear noise between rooms however the clientele at this hotel didn't seem to be noisy anyway, lol. There was a shuttle offered to the disney parks, which we didnt use since we wanted the flexibility of coming and going when we wanted. DID I MENTION YOU CAN WALK TO EPCOT? Yes you can! A short pleasant walk through Dolphin property leads you to Disney's Boardwalk which leads you right to one of the back check in gates at Epcot :) The grounds are meticulously maintained and so pretty to look at esp at night. We didnt get to the pool since it averaged 45-56 degrees while we were there. The hotel restaurants were rumored to be the best around and great for foodies...but $$$. The hotel spa also has the reputation of being super luxurious but $$$. You might want to familiarize yourself with the local diners and restaurants (there are plenty) where you can eat for less $, esp if you are with a large family. Also! The local Walmart and Target sells tons of Disney merchandise for super less $$ than Disney itself. Look into it. The check out experience was seamless and super quick. I chose to call the concierge and she did it immediately and sent a bell hop to help us with our multitude of bags. I will say this: price the hotel room rates based on non peak times (no holidays) and you will get a better deal. They charge a daily resort fee with tax and daily self parking fee. This hotel is not low on price but you definitely get what you pay for, and then some. I did pay a lot. But for my daughter's experience during her sweet sixteen...I cherish what the Dolphin offered my family and I. An amazing, most memorable experience that will be ingrained in our happy memories always. Thank you Dolphin :)
"Nice, but dated...."
We stayed at this hotel when it first opened up 20+ years ago and it was a wonderful experience. We stayed at it again last week and it was nice to be at Disneyworld but the hotel seemed dated. The rooms and most of the public areas haven't been renovated in years and were showing their age. Also, the hotel has not upgraded its amenities in some time.
"Good option for Disney, but a few issues"
First off, we had a fantastic trip to Disney World and were pleased with our room and the transportation. I can't rate this hotel at 100% though because they prioritize their corporate/convention groups over their other guests. On the hottest day of our stay all of the pools were closed for the day and through the evening. Why? They were hosting a private function for a conference group. We spoke to management about it and they suggested we use the pool at one of the Disney hotels near the boardwalk. Luckily I asked if that was allowed, because he actually said "well, just don't get caught, if they make you show your card at the gate just turn around." Seriously? But we just laughed it off. Later that week we overheard another couple at dinner who had received a stack of drink coupons as compensation, so I guess we are too easy-going :) Food: Since they call themselves a resort, I'll include reviews of the food that is available on site. The breakfast buffet (including fresh pressed juices), burger/soda shop, and Bluezoo were all very good in terms of both food and service. I wouldn't hesitate to return to any of those restaurants. Also, we planned our trip around the Food and Wine Classic, and enjoyed sampling dishes and drinks on the beautiful causeway between the Dolphin and Swan. But be warned that the poolside restaurant was not good unless you stop in at the bar to get a drink. Before sitting down by the main pool, we asked a staff member about poolside food and drink service, and were told that servers would come around to take orders and we could sit anywhere. We spent the next 45 minutes asking team members who passed by if we could order food, but each one said they didn't work with the restaurant but someone would come by soon/they would send someone by/we should look for the dark blue jackets instead of the lighter blue jacket-wearer... Another family was on the other side of the pool and I could see that they were doing the same, just trying to order some lemonades and beers and they had been their longer than we had. This is a poor experience for the guests and a loss for the hotel's bottom line (we had 2 drinks and 3 menu items for a total of nearly $100, which is typical for pool service places). I would pass on the food here though. Aside from being served take-out style in foam containers and plastic wear (literally came in a plastic grocery bag), the food wasn't good and the sauces were prepackaged. In my opinion, for a Floridian hotel to be a "resort" guests need to be able to access at least one pool and have service there. Transportation: The hotel doesn't provide airport transportation, but it was easy to get an Uber from the airport. The water taxi to Epcot and Hollywood Studios was fun. You could walk to either, though it would be a rather long walk (my husband refused to do it, but we did walk half way after one of the water taxis broke down mid-trip). The water taxi stops several times on the way to and from Epcot, but there aren't any stops between Hollywood Studios and the Swan/Dolphin stop. At busy times, you may need to stand. The buses to Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom were great. I liked that they had screens at the hotel stop to show the predicted times of the buses since they don't really run on a certain schedule. There were always seat available on the buses we took. We we took cabs on several mornings because the buses don't run early enough to take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours, so keep that in mind and plan ahead if you are going to the parks early.
