Nestled on golden sand dunes, overlooking the unspoilt beaches of Wilderness, lies Dolphin Dunes - a charming beachfront guesthouse with luxurious and tasteful guest accommodation. Our casually elegant home is wonderfully comfortable. Relax on the sea facing sundeck and watch dolphins at play in the surf, take a stroll along the endless unspoilt beaches and forest, go canoeing on the lagoon. Come and enjoy the natural splendour of Wilderness - the Garden Route at its most captivating. Once you visit Dolphin Dunes, you'll find it very hard to leave¦

Beautiful venue, lovely staff, spectacular views. Lovely breakfasts, very comfortable accommodation, included was a very nice discount at the best restaurant in the village, Pomodoro. Lovely to have a coffee machine in the room with free pods every day. Thanks very much for a wonderful visit. We will be back.

From the beginning upon booking and the response time was extremely flawless and a pleasure. When we visited to check the room our prior to checking in, we were received with a smile and eagerness to assist. We checked in early and the room was done and ready for us. The stay was amazing and the breakfast with the view was breathtaking. I would use this accommodation again in a heartbeat

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay. The room was cozy, neat and felt very homey. The staff was friendly and the breakfast top notch! Location is also great as it is a short walk to the beach! Couldn’t fault them on anything and great value for money!

Our room was very comfortable, with clean linen and towels daily. The views are amazing. The staff very helpful and the daily breakfast scrumptious. Our host Lettie went out of her way to make our stay special. Thank you Marlene Lombard

The service was amazing. The beds was so comfortable, it was home away from home. The breakfast was delicious. The staff was friendly and helpful. We asked if we could braai and they had a braai put out as they said. I would recommend this place.

Positive side: very close to the beach and probably a few nice rooms to the seaside. Negative: we got a room (no 7) on the other side with view to the parking lot & forest. Instead of woken up by the sea we had the noise from N2 Highway in our room although our windows were closed (probably the other rooms with view to the sea are way better). Also the shower was‘t clean (sand + some rubber ring (O-Ring?) was on the floor) plus the sink worked really properly. Another downturn were the holes in the duvet cover. Also we requested one gluten free breakfast for 1 person, unfortunatly they served lactose free breakfast (though we spoke during check in on the special issue on wheat with the receptionist). We were waiting during checkout to be asked if everything was ok, but the receptionist was mainly interessted if we took something from the Minibar and wished us a good journey onwards. For the price charged, this was the most expensive and worst room we had on our garden route trip. Sorry to have this poor rating, but we really would have expected better.
