The season is just beginning, the sun is still playing hide and seek with the clouds and I feel my heels bury in the moist sand while going to meet up close the Dolphin hotel, about which I have heard so many. I arrive in front of it, I am short-standing, for a while I get lost in the tranquility and serenity that the sea offers just ahead of it. A small pier, a boat rocking, a volleyball net waiting to revive again in a game, the endless blue of the sea and sky, the barren islets ... An image photographed by the visitors of the same... Dolphin, that for so many years (since 1976) "swims" in the touristic waters of the area.
Spaces full of memories, laughter and music
I walk through the veranda area with the incredible view, I enter the reception lounge, I face a large rectangular room; the breakfast area on the one side with its buffet and the dining room in beige-bronze shades, the lounge area and the bar on the other.
Who would want to sit inside in the summer and deny the sandy beach or the outdoor terrace -I wonder. Oh, this terrace, which has persistent fans, because of the restaurant that is open from morning till night, full of life and groups of friends who enjoy the famous Dolphin’s fresh fish!
The sea everywhere!
I go up and visit some of the 33 rooms. It is not that in such a hotel, where you have the sea literally at your feet, the room matters so much. You just want a tidy, clean place to rest and sleep; until the next morning, when you will find yourself again in the embrace of the sea. However, even inside the hotel’s room, you will not be totally separated from the sea, because the rooms located on the side of the building also have a wonderful sea view! Completely refurbished in 1996, the rooms have a discreet décor, with sweet colors on the walls that relax you and paintings with -what else- seascapes. For those who are looking for more square meters and extra space of comfort, there is the front-facing suite, while the three large rooms at the back and the studios with a kitchenette are also practical and ideal for families or small groups of friends.
Man, above all…
Apart from the exceptional view, the direct access to the sea, the fresh fish, I wonder what is it that makes the Dolphin visitors to come here again and again, every summer? Yes, your guess is correct, it is the owner, George, who spoils everybody and who, with his warmth and temperament, is the living proof of Greek hospitality. He would not want me to talk more about him, I respect it. Besides, you will form your own opinion when you meet him this summer, right?
Did you know that?
They tell me that there is a back entrance to the hotel, for anyone who does not want to get his feet dirty with sand. Practical. But is there a more summer feeling of bare feet that bury themselves in the warm sand? Tell me!
The hotel has a special area (indoor closed hall) for religious tourism.
Even if you are not staying at the Dolphin, you can enjoy your swim here taking advantage of the location and the convenience of the shower and WC.
Do not miss the hour of sunrise! Wake up earlier one morning, get down even with the pytzamas and capture the beautiful scenery with your camera. Or simply close the memory in your mind.
