We were not happy with our room. We spoke to Derek. He made a switch in our room that totally change our view of the accommodations and our prospective about our July 4 th vacation. We are looking forward to a wonderful weekend and more visits to this hotel.

You will be impressed from the beginning upon arrival at the front where the complementary valet service secures your car. Next you will be pleased with a very pleasant open setting with lovely ocean views from every table. Next your server arrives and efficiently brings your drink and appetizer. My steak salad as the main course was a generous portion... More

We had a nice stay. Really nice ambiance, good food and wonderful staff. Our recently remodeled room was nice and comfy, I call it "tropical chic." The resort was understated elegance and very charming. The music at the bar was nice. They played really nice reggae and calypso. It made me not miss the islands so much. It's a 3... More

I generally avoid the resorts and look for a private house to rent due to the lack of maintenance and upkeep. I was surprised when staying here on business last week. The hotel was refreshed, the rooms were up-to-date, and being right on the beach was a nice change for a business trip. The rooms are nice, spacious, with modern... More

This hotel was so much more than we expected for an amazing price. The lobby and rooms smell amazing - like a spa. Beautifully decorated rooms. Great pool area, and amazing close beach access. Very helpful staff. Restaurant was delicious. Highly recommend this gem of a resort!

Simple,... If you're planning a trip to Delray Beach / Boca Raton area, stay here! Gorgeous oceanfront property is breathtaking! Beautiful pool and hot tubs, nice restaurant overlooking the Atlantic, poolside bar. Great staff and amenities. Don't even give it a second guess,... The Delray Sands Resort is officially my favorite hotel to stay at.
