We stayed at the Beach Village at the Del on a cross-country trip in November 2010. We had originally made reservations to stay in the old lodge and I was really excited about staying in the "old part" of the hotel, so I was a little uncertain when we were told that we'd been "upgraded" and were asked to stand off to the side and wait for our own personal guide to show us to our room. As we wound through the property, away from the main lodge, we got a great tour of all of the facilities at the resort.
Our villa was amazing! It was a 2 story unit with a hot tub off the bedroom on the second floor balcony. We had a full ocean view from that balcony as well. It was gorgeous! We were also happy to have a full kitchen and living/dining area since we'd been staying in various hotel rooms across the country and missed the space of a real house. Everything in the villa was top-notch - the linens, bath products, kitchen appliances, etc. It was lovely. The only part that caught us off-guard was that the Del had added a $200 surcharge to our room fee. I caught it and pointed out that they had decided to upgrade us, it was not our choice to move from the main building to the beach village, and they removed the charge immediately. I'm not exactly sure what that was about, but I was glad that it was taken care of.
We had a lovely 3 day stay at the Beach Village. We walked into town and enjoyed many of the restaurants and shops. We walked along the beach and used the fitness center in the mornings to workout. The staff was so helpful and friendly in all areas of the resort. We loved the shops in the hotel and the bar there as well. It was a great stay. We will return next time we are in that area and will most likely choose the Beach Village now that we have been spoiled with that level of accommodation!
