Once one of Lima's best hotels, Delfines's star has faded slightly, but to compensate it's charging competitive rates. Carpeted guest rooms are bright and comfortably furnished, with small desks and masssive windows. The best ones have sweeping views of the city's oldest golf course. A café overlooks the airy lobby, and a larger bistro sits beneath a long arch of crisscrossing ribbons of stainless steel and glass panes. The outdoor swimming pool is open from December
to May. There's also a small gym and spa.

I booked a room here because I wanted in-room high speed internet, as promised on all the hotel booking websites. In-room service is included, but it is dial-up, slow (16-33kps) and extremely unreliable. Wireless networks are very good and fast, but cost extra to access. I am concerned about the dolphins. The problem is that they are not just a sideshow; they define the hotel's identity. I doubt the hotel will respond well to pressure to stop
its abuse of these animals.
