Accommodations

View Rooms & Rates

Take your pick from one of 62 stylish suites, so expansive and plush they feel like palatial oceanfront holiday homes. Behind your private front door you’ll find a light and airy apartment with every conceivable comfort, including walk-in closets, separate living areas, kitchens with granite counter tops, laundry facilities, and patios or balconies. One-bedroom suites are categorized by position, with options overlooking the mountains, ocean, or pool.

For more space, choose a two-bedroom suite with either fireplaces or soaking tubs or the superlative, ocean-view penthouse suites, which feature both. Every suite, except the penthouses, comes with a queen-size sleeper sofa in the living room, and kids are welcomed with personalized beach buckets and shovels, coloring sets, bubbles, and a snack. Some suites are pet-friendly and come with a welcome amenity including a pet bed, food and water dishes, and a ball. Alongside your fully equipped kitchen, you can order from a room service menu between 7:30 a.m. and 10 p.m. and staff can arrange a barbecue for alfresco cookouts, in addition to streamlining any other aspect of your stay.

Dolphin Bay Resort & Spa Dining

Dining

Your state-of-the-art, in-suite kitchen gives you the flexibility of cooking your own meals with locally sourced ingredients, or you can enjoy the resort’s on-site restaurant, Lido, which offers you the opportunity to relax and sample locally-inspired dishes cooked by top chefs.

Lido – Expansive ocean views form the backdrop for the best of Californian coastal cuisine at the hotel’s signature restaurant, open from breakfast until late. Dine on black cod with maitake mushrooms, or rib eye with heirloom potatoes and purple baby artichokes, or indulge with the chef’s five-course tasting menu, available with matching wines. The cellar features over 800 vintages, representing the best of the region, and the world.

Lido Lounge – For something more relaxed, head to the lounge with innovative cocktails, craft beers, local ciders, and a range of wines by the glass, plus a menu of classic dishes, from seared scallops to heartier choices including burgers and pizza.

 

Dolphin Bay Resort & Spa Activities

Activities

Soak up the Californian sun around the idyllic infinity pool, or take a walk down the path to Shell Beach at the bottom of the bluff — the guest services team can supply beach towels and chairs, tennis rackets, soccer balls, and Frisbees to keep the whole family occupied. Work out in the 24-hour fitness center, or exercise outdoors, with a hike or bike along the coastal trails — there are complimentary bikes available. The Spa at Dolphin Bay offers everything from relaxing massages to anti-aging facials, and yoga classes are hosted as well.

The concierge desk is on hand to help you experience the very best of the Central Coast, both on the water — with surfing, kayaking, paddle-boarding, whale watching, and sport fishing — and off. The team can organize golf, sightseeing trips to nearby Hearst Castle, and tastings at the area’s many boutique wineries, where you can pick up a bottle of something to drink with dinner, sourced from one of the local farmer’s markets.
