This was our second stay at the Del after a surprisingly disappointing first stay last year in the historic part of the hotel. We decided to give it another chance, and found out about the Beach Village during our research. We were very pleased, and that says a lot given how expensive it is.
First, the Beach Village is gated off from the chaos of the main hotel.It is quieter and has a variety of acommodations from kitchenettes, to ground floor beachfront suites (which we had...junior suite). We always read the worst reviews first in TripAdvisor to see what made someone that upset. One complaint the Beach Village Beachfront Suite had was the foot traffic on the boardwalk right in front of your patio. Yes, there are people on a side walk 40 feet away on the other side of a fence....but they are not a problem at all. In fact, we opened up the french doors COMPLETELY and let the breeze flow into the room. My wife and I are very private and did not feel intruded upon.
Now, your experience could be impacted by who your neighbors end up being. Screaming kids would be a problem, but we were fortunate in quiet neighbors. The rooms CAN be shared with a common door, and we did get a quick "Howdy Neighbor" from our dorky neighbor across the common gate but that was it.
We had a "private" jacuzzi, but private meant only for us to use....not that you are away from public view. There are very nice Beach Village only pools and jacuzzi's as well.
The room was beautifully appointed. Awesome tub to soak in. 2 seperate sink areas. Beautiful gas fireplace. Full movie selection available on TV but $15 for a $5 movie rental back home. We used room service and it was all around excellent. You are assigned a concierge (Thanks Sasha!) who was wonderfully helpful. The Beach Village only clubhouse is very nice and the breakfast was first rate. The rooms are wonderful all morning but the afternoon sun is either really intrusive or bright and happy depending on your viewpoint.
To say we would stay again, the experience must be worth the money or more. The Beach Village is VERY expensive.....as is the Del in general. We would stay here at the Beach Village again.
Be prepared to tip, and you will be pampered. If you are impossible to please then you will find fault. We had a great time. THe staff at the Del try hard to exceed your expectations.
