If you have ever dreamed of your own private paradise, Three Dolphins Villa will fulfill your fantasy. Drive through the security gates onto the lushly landscaped grounds and you will immediately feel the world slip away. Ahead, on a gentle bluff, the Villa rises amidst the colorful gardens; it overlooks a sandy private beach on placid Grace Bay. We found the accommodations perfect for our family group. The main house had three bedrooms, each with its own private bath. A huge great room with a large living and dining room was in the center along with a very complete kitchen -- although we planned to do little serious cooking. The master suite was at one end of the main house; two additional bedrooms along with a second kitchen and a laundry area were on the other side of the great room. The living room even had a grand piano should anyone be inclined to play. Across a breezeway was a two-bedroom guest house with kitchen and laundry area, as well as a spacious living/dining room. The master suite opened onto the pool area. At one end of the pool was the pool house, a complete one-bedroom bungalow. The gate house had three bedrooms and was located by the tennis court. Tucked away was a children's area featuring a custom-built play yard with swings, a slide, and a platform where the youngsters could spot any pesky pirates before they came ashore. These are the facts, but the magic of Three Dolphins Villa is the care that went into designing the property. The Villa is beautifully suited to its location in scale and ambiance. All of the rooms at the top of the bluff feature a full ocean view. Each is laid out with cross-ventilation so that, even though the entire Villa is air-conditioned, the ocean breezes and the ceiling fans in all rooms keep the Villa comfortable. Each room has a distinct decor carried out in the linens, furniture and decorations. A full-length portico wrapped around from the guest house all the way down to the pool area. There were many conversation areas, both large and small. We could enjoy breakfast or cocktails as a group or find small nooks for quiet reading or napping. Fountains added to the serene ambiance as did the local birds. It was the perfect touch that, on several occasions during our stay, a school of dolphins passed the Villa leaping and frolicking. All the bedrooms and common rooms had satellite TV, but we found the serenity so pleasant we seldom let the outside world intrude. The warm memories of Three Dolphins Villa and our wonderful family reunion will linger and draw us back.
We had the best time ever at the Three Dolphins villa. Our family plus two other families had a fantastic time. This villa is superb, with the ocean, pool, tennis court, and outdoor chess set.
I stayed at the Three Dolphins Villa this past February with several of my girlfriends. From the first moment that we drove up the driveway, I thought I was in paradise. The lush landscape that was bursting with color and the amazing view from the verandah of the ocean lapping at the private white sandy beach made me wonder how I could be so fortunate to be staying in such an amazing place. Should I swim in the ocean or in the private swimming pool? Should I rise to watch the sunrise or gaze late into the night at the canopy of stars? From playing tennis on the private court, to making music on the grand piano or watching a movie on the big screen TV, there was something for everyone. The accommodations were first class. I was with three of my friends in the gatehouse and we found it lived up to and even surpassed the pictures we had seen on the website. Just a short drive to amazing local cuisine and shops, this private get-a-way was the perfect setting for our girls-only vacation and we plan to return next winter. I would highly recommend that you stay here on your next visit to the island.
As a former ATP tennis player, I have traveled all over the world for the last 35 years and I have never seen a more beautiful villa with more gorgeous sightlines than those I witnessed at the Three Dolphins Villa. The Villa had absolutely everything a vacationer could ask for. If you are looking for a relaxing, comfortable stay with all the possible amenities and the most exquisite ocean just meters from your bed - then Three Dolphins is a must before you leave this earth. Simply put this place is a good as it gets. Don't miss out on a trip of a lifetime. The memories will last forever.
We recently spent 5 days and nights at the breathtaking Three Dolphins Villa and words can't describe the experience. From the private white sandy beach to the luxurious lap pool, every amenity that could be desired for a luxury vacation has been considered. As an avid tennis enthusiast, we also really enjoyed the professional grade tennis court (equipped with lights for playing under the stars). The highlight for our group was barbecuing steaks over the open flame of the charcoal grill while watching the ocean and the picturesque sunset. A 'must visit' for families (very kid friendly with its own play fort!) and groups looking to get away from the crowded resorts on the island. We are already planning our visit for 2013!!
We really lucked out on a last minute trip to escape the harsh Canadian winter. We spent April 9th to 15th enjoying the awesome amenities of this beach front property. The main house provided beautifully appointed and comfortable rooms; next time we will bring friends to occupy the pool house and separate suites. It would be ideal for an extended family vacation. Early risers, we enjoyed spectacular sunrises followed by a walk on the pristine and safe beach. We played tennis on site and golf nearby. Afternoons we swam in the ocean or the pool or both..Busy mornings were usually followed by some "down time" reading or sometimes napping on the chaises under the portico. A well equipped kitchen made for easy breakfast and lunch preparation; many fine restaurants nearby provided us with wonderful dining choices. Long days,lots of activities and superb private accommodations proved to be just what we needed. Relaxed,sun-kissed and very impressed we returned home already planning a return trip.
We stayed at this luxurious villa from Feb. 16th to Feb. 25th, 2011. What a great place! The beach is one of the best I've been to. Private, quiet, soft, clean golden sand and very gentle waves. The breeze was so refreshing while walking on the beach and kept us comfortable when lying in the sun's heat. We also just loved hanging out under the portico relaxing and reading in the shade. The pool was very refreshing when it got too hot. It was nice to be able to play tennis also on the tennis court and we really enjoyed star gazing at night...the stars were so clear! I've been to Dominican Republic, Cuba, all over Mexico,even Maui and this beach has no comparison!!!! What a great getaway! The accommodations were very comfortable and we had fun cooking in the spacious kitchens. If we felt like going out, there was plenty to see and do in Provo. Definitely a must...we will be going again!
