Recent upgrades to the bedrooms have made a huge difference. Everything is well maintained, especially on the beach. There are plenty of beach towels, umbrellas and lounge chairs. Cant wait to return next year after on site bar and restaurant are remodeled.

We spent two nights at this "resort" several weeks ago and was quite satisfied with my stay. I say "resort" because I think that title may be somewhat misleading as it is not the size nor does it have the other amenities one often associates with a"resort." Nonetheless, this "resort" was perfect for us and suited our purposes just fine!... More

We were invited to spend a weekend at this resort and so glad we did. It is truly a little gem. It is a great getaway from the crazy lives we lead. From the minute you walk in it feels so inviting and comfortable. Luis and Matt were great. They look great care of my car and were friendly and... More

The best thing about this property is the beach. I have lived in Florida all my life and I have visited many beaches in the area but none compare to this one. The sand is wonderful and the water is crystal clear. The facility itself is an old Holiday Inn that was purchased by the Opal Collection in February. Since... More

My 7 year-old twins and I recently stayed in a standard room with two queens. We were merely looking for a comfortable room and a decent pool to swim in between visits with my grandmother who lives in Delray Beach. The Delray Sands was running a special where we paid less than $100 night (plus a $25 resort fee), so... More

They rescued us! We stayed one night at Seabonay "Resort" and couldn't get out fast enough. Thank goodness Delray Sands had a vacancy. We took a short drive up the coast, and they even got us an early check-in at 10:00 a.m. We were so thankful after being exhausted from researching hotels until 2:00 a.m. on the first night of...

Brd-Bttr, Thank you for taking the time to write a review regarding your recent stay at the Delray Sands Resort.

My husband, grandparents, and I are very unhappy with this hotel. We have been here in the past and had a great experience, but this time around was much different. The front desk was very unhelpful with our accommodations when we were clearly dissatisfied. The cleaning staff was extremely rude once we finally asked them if they wouldn't mind cleaning... More
