I was not impressed at all by Dolphin Dance self catering. First of all the advertising is misleading - 1km from the beach... I'm not so sure about that. It's probably a 5 minute drive and is definitely not in walking distance. As for "garden" it is really a small patch of grass, and for a "sea view" it needs...

We had a WONDERFULL stay at Dolphin Dance Lodge. The room was beautiful and the food was excellent! The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and really went the extra mile to accommodate us. It felt like a home away from home and we will definitely be staying at Dolphin Dance again.

When we booked the stay we were under the impression that it was a 4 star and beach view. We arrived at the address and got our keys and told that we are staying in the guest house, this turned out to be 3 star and a lovely view of an unfinished building so was very disappointed in that regard....

We had a lovely stay in one of the self catering room. It was a short drive from the main lodge but was quite and clean. The room was spacious and even provided complementary wifi. The best part of our stay was the lovely staff that were very friendly and more than welcoming from our first arrival. We had one...

We checked in very late on our wedding night and upon arrival a security guard opened the gate for us and had all our paperwork ready. He took us to our room and we were pleasantly surprised with the very clean room and generous amenities. We had percolated coffee, toffees and cookies in our room every day with fresh clean...

Spent 6 days there and really liked the place, it's a good location for people working at the coega site as it is right between it and PE city, it is also close to the beach and supermarket. Restaurant food was simple but tasty. Rooms were nice and spacious and enjoyed it. I do not give a 5 star cause...

I will not really call Bluewater Bay a prime holiday spot, but we got exactly what we looked for, a self-catering flat (managed by Dolphin Dance) north of the city, so the criticisms of some other reviewers were not an issue for us - the lack of restaurants in the area was our biggest gripe. The flat was spacious, clean...

I stayed at their self catering apartment at Bluewaters - some 15 Kms from the main city centre. But that's what we wanted - lil away from all the chaos, yet accessible. The apartment is just about a kilometer away from the beach, meant that you are never far away from fun. The rooms are nicely done and airy. Did...
