The Dolphin Beach Resort is a 173-room mid-range property situated on the white sands of St. Pete Beach. Interiors of the resort are aged and in need of an update, though reasonable rates give this resort good value. The colorful rooms have basic furniture along with modern conveniences such as flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, microwaves, and coffeemakers, though decor is dated and some guests complain of noisy air-conditioning units. Many ground floor rooms have direct access to the beach or pool area -- a perk that is worth the extra cost. Though interiors are lackluster, the grounds of the resort are lovely, with a large pool surrounded by many sun chairs and palm trees, and a tiki-style beach bar. The resort’s on-site restaurant, Boca Sands Grille, serves American classics, but there are several dining options within walking distance as well. Wi-Fi is free.
