Just spent a night here on the way down the coast to Fort Lauderdale. Be aware that the restaurant and reception are being completely re-built, so no food in the evenings, lots of noise next to the pool, and nowhere to eat within walking distance -so $20 taxi each way or self-drive. In the afternoon there was a basic BBQ... More

Beachfront hotel in south florida thats not a high-rise and is "away from it all". What's not to like about that? LOVED this place. Everything we wanted in a place to stay while visiting family. Perfect. Except there was a party going on in the room below us one night. Paid extra for ocean front upstairs balcony (worth it!) but... More

We made a reservation for the Thanksgiving holiday at this iPrefer site in July. Today, we learned that their restaurant would be closed during our visit. The hotel never contacted us. We learned by accident when we visited their website. We did not see any indication of this when we booked. Make sure that you confirm that the restaurant is... More

I just check out of this hotel yesterday and spent 7 nights there. It is currently being renovated so I do not know how it usually looks, but I can tell you that most of the service great. Although they did give me a courtesy call to inform me of the restaurant closure, they did not tell me the level... More

We just returned from a great weekend at The Delray Sands Resort (formerly, the Highland Beach Holiday Inn). The rooms were beautifully renovated. Among our family we had rooms on the oceanfront and poolside, all were very nice. The staff was amazing. Everyone from the front desk, housekeeping, beach service and poolside grill chef was so accommodating. The hotel manager... More

We're residents of Delray Beach who enjoy a monthly getaway at one of our many resorts and hotels. The location of the Delray Sands on the ocean is very nice and we give kudos to the chef of their excellent restaurant. The hotel was more than half empty yet they put us in a room without a balcony and with... More

Went last minute for Labor day weekend. What a nice surprise. Front desk staff made us feel welcome. Used to be old Holiday Inn. Had a remodeled room overlooking pool and with a great side view of ocean. AC unit was tired and a bit noisy but did the job. Beach and pool areas are maintained and staffed very well.... More

This place was very accommodating, great location right on the ocean. The food at the bar and in the restaurant was excellent. The pool was clean, as were the grounds of the hotel. Close to boca raton and also delray beach. Would highly recommend.

We wanted a relaxing vacation at the beach and is exactly what we got. The hotel rooms are beautiful, the beach is stunning, the pool was very nice. It's located in a gorgeous area, but many things to do walking distance, but less than 5 minutes car drive to great restaurants. Ask for a beach front room, it is absolutely... More

From the moment we pulled in, I was impressed. The valet attendants, front desk staff, restaurant and bar staff, pool attendants and everyone else we encountered were some of the friendliest I've ever met! The room was awesome with a nice modern bathroom, very nice decor, comfortable bed, plenty of towels, etc. I can't say enough good things about this... More
