This is a wonderful hotel and I have really enjoyed my stays there, however I was shocked to recently learn that despite return the iprefer reward points response card to the front desk, the stay never credited me for any of my three stays there in the past year. The lack of attention to detail and follow through is disappointing.

The staff were so friendly and helpful, I saw them go above and beyond many times....from Steve on the beach dragging chairs out for people to... More

We just stayed at the Delray Sands Resort for three nights and it definitely exceeded my expectations. The resort is beautiful and has a large beach area. Our hotel room was clean, large and had a great balcony with an ocean view. The only thing that bothered us was they are a little chincy - $25 resort fee per night... More

I enjoyed my stay in late April. Traveling alone, I felt very safe. The staff were helpful and friendly. The guys working the valet detail were quick and accommodating. The recent renovations resulted in a comfortable, attractive and highly functional property. I would definitely recommend to friends, and would return. There are many restaurants and shops within several miles of... More

I stayed at the resort at the end of April...I had an ocean front room on the top floor...the hotel has been updated in a fun mid-century style that fits the architecture...I loved the decor of the room and the public spaces. The beach was great -- and though I didn't dine at the hotel, there were many people at... More

Beautiful Restaurant and great setting. Wonderful lighting and the best service possible. The computer broke down, not a big deal, just add, about 30 minutes to get the credit cards to clear. Dessert: The best home made ice cream in the world. Just go for Dessert. Entrees: A for looks and C- for taste. All the different types of fish........ More

Pleasant experience without any fuss. Pure hospitality. Everything you can ask for without a hitch. Every detail is seamlessly covered by a staff that truly cares. This is a GEM in the otherwise pot luck world of South Florida.
