Lovely lunch enjoying fabulous ocean views

The Hotel Del is ... well ... dreamy. The red roofs, the amazing boardwalk and ocean is enjoyed all at the same time from the outdoor patio of the Sheerwater. Service was friendly and portions more than generous. We all enjoyed sharing a fresh seafood platter and our children had lots of choices... read more

The location is amazing, we decided to have lunch on the terrasse. The oysters were not fresh and i suppose that they were left outside the fridge for a while... Salads and claws were bad. It's a pitty for a so pretty location.

The breakfasts are the best part of the day here. Good service and a wonderful variety. Lunches are rather ordinary although well prepared. Every now and then there is a surprise like an excellent lobster bisque. However, the service can be very very slow even when ordering the Quick Lunch Specials (40min?!)

We enjoyed an excellent meal on the terrace at Sheerwater. The menu has a very nice variety of fresh choices. The service was perfect and I wish I could remember our server's name. It was cool outside but the area heaters made it pleasant.

Sick to the recipe. ( Romaine lettuce, Parmesan. Croutons and dressing ) and use better meat. I could get a better BBQ Sandwich at Mc Donalds.

We met friends and colleagues here for dinner. To start, the service staff is superb and first rate. Our party tried many different entrees, but I order the NY strip steak. The steak is incredible. My friends ordered the fish, and they loved every bite of it. Definitely a must stop and eat.

The location of this hotel is incredible. The beach is beautiful and teaming with life. People seem to come here to pretend that they're guests. We went to shop and have dinner. The food was fast and proper. The drink menu was imaginative and varied, themed with names for the ongoing World Cup in Brazil. This is the kind of... More
