Just south of Delray Beach, Highland Beach is a non-commercial stretch with one Hotel; this one. Formerly named the Holiday Inn, this hotel and restaurant has been upscaled. The lighter menu is available at the poolside bar and inside bar and seating area. Delicious Hummus and Pita appetizer. Tasty Chicken Wings too. The glass-enclosed private dining room is good for...

Excellent room extremely clean. Staff Nicole and the gang were awesome when I needed documents from work faxed out or in at no charge. Restaurant is fabulous. Steve on the beach with umbrellas was awesome. Claus the pool bartender was on it! I can't say enough about how great this was.

As soon as we arrived we knew we made the right decision! We were treated like gold! The staff is amazing! The food is amazing along with the service. We had a beach front room with an amazing view to go along with the private beach. The hotel is spotless and if you are on the beach or by the... More

its not a "fancy" hotel which is exactly what we want when we just want to relax! the restaurant is actually very good- we stayed for easter one year and the menu was holiday appropriate and delicious. love that we have the option of going to the beach or staying at the pool.

Stayed with spouse 7/21-23/15, We had a room 126 on 1st floor looking out at the pool. The room had a small balcony but a small group of hedges somewhat blocked the view. The grounds were well maintained and some painting was being done outside, but it did not hinder our stay. They only had valet parking but our rate... More

i worked with the Delray Sands as the guest accommodation for my daughter's wedding in February 2015. During the course of working with the Delray sands they did have turnover of staff and I didn't always have timely responses but they were very accommodating of our wishes. the guests all loved the hotel, it is visually overwhelming the back entrance...

My grandfather took my mother and I here years ago for my birthday dinner. It is down the street from where he used to live. We had a nice view of the ocean. I took a picture of the view on what is now an ancient phone. It was the clearest photo I ever took on that phone. I really... More

My family and I had the best weekend here at The Delray Sands Resort. When we arrived we were greeted by the very welcoming valet, this was great because I hate trying to find parking spaces and then having to carry my luggage long distances. As we walked in to the lobby we received a very warm welcome from Derric... More

One of the nicest features of the Delray Sands is its location nestled between residential condominiums. Resorts long this stretch of AIA are few so it means that the area is quiet and peaceful and the beach is not crowded. I was informed that the resort was a Holiday Inn in the past but I have to say there are... More
