With 4 families of 4 daughters gathering for a week we couldn't have asked for a better arrangement of space to gather and space to be apart. The beach was close enough to be visited at all times of the day and night, and the town and all it offered filled our other hours. The weather was a bit warm, and kept the pool too warm to be refreshing, but it was a great gathering place and the children didn't mind the temperature at all.

We had stayed in the units several years before and then they were sold. The new owners did a superb job of upgrading the units. New carpet, furniture, etc was great. Pool area is wonderful for family area with a short walk to the beach. Anna Maria remains our beach destination. We'll rent this property again!!
Thanks for the great review. We're glad you enjoyed all of the upgrades that the new owners made. They continue to improve things to make the Blue Dolphin Inn better than ever! We hope you'll return soon.

“This was a perfect get away for my wedding party!!”
Left on 04/08/2013 for a stay in May 2012 | TracyReviewed Apr 8, 2013Stayed May 2012
Last year we stayed at the Blue Dolphin for my wedding! We had all for units to keep our family and friends close together for our special trip! All the units were great! Our room, the Master in the The Flamingo, was the best!! The screened in porch was also a huge plus. The fact that we were all separate yet could be together in a second was great. The courtyard and pool was used for our reception and it worked out perfectly. It's a great spot for everyone from all the units to meet up together! The observation decks were so nice to go up and relax with a view. The location was also great...close to our favorite Rod and Reel Pier. I cannot wait to get another group of family and friends together so we can come back!
Thanks for the wonderful review! We're glad you enjoyed the Blue Dolphin Inn and hope you'll be back soon.

“Excellent experience at a wonderful location in "paradise".”
Left on 01/17/2013 for a stay in December 2012 | Angie B.Reviewed Jan 17, 2013Stayed Dec 2012
We rented the entire Blue Dolphin Inn for our children and grandchildren (15 of us total) and it was just a perfect place which we lovingly referred to as our compound in paradise. The units were wonderful, the pool was great and it was a short walk to the most beautiful beach on the island. In addition, a washer was not working when we arrived and a sink clogged during our stay and both were fixed expediently following a call to Island Vacation Properties. I would highly recommend this facility and location .
Thank you for the excellent review of the Blue Dolphin Inn! We are delighted to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay here and hope to have you all visit again in the future!

Payne's Summer Getaway
“Fun and relaxing family vacation spot”
Left on 08/03/2012 for a stay in July 2012 | Payne's Summer GetawayReviewed Aug 3, 2012Stayed Jul 2012
First time we have done this kind of vacation and it turned out wonderful! This was a great location for our family get together. Each unit complete with home style living to allow personal space as well as be able to host other family from ajoining units for visits. Our family from ms, SC, IL, and FL enjoyed the space and the private fence that included a pool as well as tiki bar! 2 blocks from the beach and fishing. Shopping mall, museum near by. Pool area accomodated a fish fry and Jacaranda space (in and outside screened in porch) large enough to host family dinner of 23 adults and 4 kids. Minor maintence issue handled efficiently. Thumbs up from everyone who attended.
