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.

Patrick r, Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to write a review. We are conveniently located, as you mentioned, between Boca and Delray. It is a great location being just a short ride to downtown Delray or the shops and restaurants of Mizner Park, and then guests get to come back to a peaceful resort right... More

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

My boyfriend and I just needed a place to stay in Delray Beach (Highland Beach) for the weekend. So glad we chose this location. Right on the beach, great pool, hot tub and restaurant on property. What more do you need?! Rooms were clean and updated which was nice! I would definitely come back!

I have stayed at this hotel twice and wil continue to go back. The location is amazing! We even enjoyed walking and admiring the beautiful homes on that strip in the morning. The beach is beautiful and the pool is always a relaxing place. Have enjoyed my stay every time.
