I truly believe that choosing Dolphin Bay Resort as the venue for our wedding was the best decision we made during the whole wedding planning process. Denai was incredible to work with and made the planning process and the day itself go so smoothly. She is fun and enthusiastic and truly a professional, we could not have asked for a better partner and coordinator for our big day. As for the venue itself, I truly believe we blew away all of our guests with the resort's incredible layout and views, and moving inside Lido restaurant for the reception (rather than a windowless banquet hall) was beautiful and practical. The food was unbelievable and the service was unbeatable. Absolutely worth the price as our wedding will not be one our guests soon forget. I would definitely recommend Dolphin Bay Resort for anyone looking for a wedding venue in the Central Coast!Sent on 11/04/2013

This location is beautiful for an outdoor wedding! Our pictures are spectacular from the ceremony and Shell Beach is just a quick 10 minute walk for photos. The landscaping around the venue is beautiful so there is very little you have to do to decorate.Sent on 09/29/2016
The coordinator Denai was so easy to work with. She has lot's of experience and makes great suggestions to keep the event running smoothly and making it special. She is great with communicating costs and expectations. We had no surprise billing amounts or hidden costs when the final bill arrived. It was exactly as planned.
The food was spectacular. We received lots of compliments on how delicious the New York Steak and Sea Bass were. The food was beautifully presented. My 8 year old daughter really wanted Steak instead of the kids meal which she voiced during our meeting with Denai. Denai remembered and surprised her at dinner with a steak.
Like every bride, I was addicted to Pinterest. I wanted cupcakes with blush frosting and gold sparkles. The pastry chef made it happen. The cupcakes were gorgeous and delicious.
The waiting staff that was on hand was out of this world with their attention to our guests. The Bartending staff was friendly and quick. Plates were cleared promptly and with the best attitude.
I was slightly worried about the weather as it was due to be windy during the evening. Our reception was outside on the patio. No worries on that because they have these amazing heaters on the patio and there was no need for blankets or sweaters.
I would highly recommend this location for a wedding or any event. We enjoyed our day to the fullest and were well taken care of.

We had the absolute best setting for our wedding at the Dolphin Bay Resort! The ocean, the sunset, and that spectacular tent were the envy of all of our guests. Working with Denai was so easy, she responded fast to all of our questions or concerns. Everything ran smoothly and was so convenient for our guests to have everything right there. The food and presentation was amazing! Do not hesitate to book here, its worth every penny!!Sent on 10/13/2015
The Central Coast of California is a top wedding destinations for weddings for very good reason. Over the last 9 years I have officiated over 500 weddings in the Greater San Luis Obispo area and I've intimately experienced many different types of wedding places and venues. If you are looking for a ceremony and reception host who will earn a full 5 star review, look no further than Dolphin Bay Resort & Spa. It is always my pleasure to officiate a wedding there. Dolphin Bay has it all. Every hotel suite, the ceremony site and the reception site is overlooking the breathtaking setting of the majestic Pacific Ocean. And add top-tier dining from Lido brought to you with the true definition of service and you will see what sets them apart from others. And your wedding coordinator, Denai, is more than your coordinator. She has a well known reputation amongst wedding professionals and ecstatic clients for doing everything possible to ensure that your wedding is absolutely better than perfect. Denai and Dolphin Bay have an entire compliment of capable staff that will make your wedding day better than you expect. Take it from me and call Denai, let her show you all that Dolphin Bay has to offer and you will be happy that you did!
