Positive Reviews

Fantastic location.

Guests love the fact that Black Dolphin Inn stands is situated in an excellent location that is just perfect for holiday makers. The setting features breathtaking views of the Indian River particularly during sunrise and Florida's East-Central Atlantic Coast. Dock guests can relax with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine/champagne and watch the dolphins gracefully waltzing in the clear waters. A walking distance away lies the New Smyrna Beach's historic downtown with its numerous shops, restaurants, beaches, and surf shops. As for onsite recreational activities, there are free bicycles while the bay, the Indian River backwaters and the Canaveral National Seashore Park are a classic fishing paradise.

Helpful and attentive staff.

Many guests have been pleased by the staff who they found to be extremely accommodating, personable, and super-professional.

Luxurious and beautifully designed inn.

Guests have been enthralled by the gripping luxury in Euro-style bedding, designer toiletries, and jetted tubs. The interior design comprising individually decorated and furnished rooms, original artwork, and antiques are among the features that have contributed to this property earning several prestigious awards.

Negative Reviews

Tubs with high sides.

A section of guests have reported struggling to get in and out of the bathtubs which they have noted have unusually high sides.

Minor cleanliness complaints.

While many guests have observed Black Dolphin Inn is generally immaculately clean most of the time, a few of them have reported that the embossed metalwork and bedside lamp's prisms are in need of thorough cleaning.

Translucent partitions.

Some guests have been annoyed by the translucent wall between the shower and the bedroom which does not provide sufficient privacy.
