  • From the start to the end, this place and their staff have been incredible. Krysta, the events coordinator, truly made my dream wedding come to life. We are so lucky we were able to get married here. The view for the ceremony and reception is unreal. The tent that held out reception was absolutely gorgeous. This place, this staff, and Krysta are a 20/10.

  • We just got married at the Dolphin in September and I must say it was PERFECT. As soon as we saw this venue we fell in love. You can't beat the views, the grounds are so well kept, and the staff was impeccable. My mind was at ease the day of knowing that Krysta, the wedding coordinator, was down in the tent helping my vision come to life. She was AMAZING. In Terms was staff, grounds, food, pool, service. Everything was 5 stars. Wouldn't have changed a thing!!

  • Selecting the Dolphin Bay Resort and Spa for our wedding venue was one of the best decisions we ever made! We had really wanted to get married at the beach, somewhere in the Santa Barbara area because this was so special for us. We have a unique love story, in that we were high school sweet hearts, and first loves, but lost touch for 17 years, and reconnected 3 years ago! All the vendors that we talked to were difficult to work with, in that there were all these restrictions (e.g. we couldn’t have rose petals on the ground, etc.). We wanted a small, intimate wedding and many places required all kinds of minimums. At first glance, the Dolphin Bay Resort and Spa looked like it would be way out of our budget, and we were worried that the team might be difficult to work with again. The resort is up on a cliff, overlooking the pacific ocean, and to the views are breathtaking. The entire aura is one of elegance and beauty, and it feels like you are in a Disney movie. To our surprise, we ... Read more

  • 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. 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 ... Read more

  • 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!!

  • My daughters September wedding was held outside on the courtyard with the reception at the Lido Restaurant. It was spectacular and beautiful. The service staff is beyond efficient and courteous and outstanding! Our Event Coordinator, Denai Vine is AMAZING!!! How she took our wishes and turned them into reality and not to mention our very last minute "oh, can we do this too" ideas - she was positive, fun and made every detail work for us. We recommend you come in a few days in advance just to play with all the fun events in the area, or relax in the luxury rooms overlooking the ocean. We consider the Dolphin Bay Resort part of our family now and look forward to going back as often as we can! For your special events call Denai and she will take great care of you!

  • 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!

  • The night before our wedding in October 2010, my husband and I hosted our rehearsal/family dinner in a penthouse suite at Dolphin Bay. It was a wonderful experience! The setting was gorgeous and more unique and secluded than a traditional restaurant function room. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was perfect. We worked with Chris Ohara and Denai Vine to arrange our event; it turned out perfectly thanks to their hard work, suggestions, and customer service. Almost everyone affiliated with our wedding stayed at The Cliffs, Spyglass Inn, and Dolphin Bay; people walked to the rehearsal dinner and truly enjoyed the setting and the views. Dolphin Bay has several spots for private parties and events, and we highly recommend Denai and her team to help you plan any type of party!

  • Dolphin Bay Resort and Spa was absolutely the best place for our reception and working with Denai Vine is the best experience. She is so responsive and listens to your every need. Very professional at the reception making sure each guest were satisfied. The staff is absolutely amazing too, very professional. We had such an amazing time and the food was by far the best that all of our guests ever had at a wedding! We did a duo of Prawn Taco with Spanish-style rice, black beans, 8-12oz New York Steak with side of Chimchurri Sauce. The steaks were cooked medium rare and the prawn taco was the hit. Everyone said they left full. I would definetly recommend Dolphin Bay Resort and Spa to anyone that is looking for an all in one package. I will definetly be back in the future, I love Dolphin Bay!!

  • Denai Vine and all the staff at Dolphin Bay Resort did an absolutely wonderful job for our wedding. The day was perfect and more than I could hope for. Denai made sure everything ran smoothly. The staff was a delight to have around and made my family feel very welcome. The scenery backdrop with the bluffs looking off out to the ocean was priceless! They went above and beyond to make sure other random guests didn't get into the background of my pictures during our ceremony. Denai checked and double checked to make sure all our needs were met during our weekend stay. The whole weekend was a dream come true. Thank you Dolphin Bay!

  • This venue is to DIE for!!!!! in my now husbands description to a friend of his that couldnt make it, "it was a dream wedding" Dolphin Bay is breath taking!!!! From the views, to the path down to the beach for amazing pictures. I couldnt ask for a better location. A bit pricey, but worth every penny! The food was outstanding! The only thing I would say is the coordinator needs to be more flexible esp when you live hours away and can not be there on a drop of a hat for the tasting. everything worked out in the end! :)
