Built in 1975 and renovated in 2001, the Dauphin d'Or has a multitude of white buildings (with 517 rooms), set at varying heights around a large private marina in the centre of Ilica. The complex, which is vaguely reminiscent of Monte Carlo, is centred around a port containing several yachts, with lawned terraces planted with palm trees, and a private beach situated 1,640 feet away. The interior decor of the hotel is classic and the facilities offer residents a high level of comfort. In terms of leisure and sports, there are high level of equipments, with the ample programme of the sumptuous thalassatherapy centre, and a relaxed but professional activity team. For purchases, designer boutiques and an art galery have set up in an open-air shopping centre.
