“Fairy Tale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

This was a birthday trip and I loved every minute of it. This is the third time we stay at the Del and I have never experienced the level of welcoming and courtesy as I did this time. The weather was truly steamy (unseasonably hot we were told), and as we aproach the front desk we were greeted with a tray of cold lemonade (thank you Raul). Our room had a bottle of wine to welcome you, champagne was sent to us that evening. Friendly, caring and very professional staff like Miss Cassandra at check in. Cassie at the ENO wine bar was such a delight while Salvatore made the best pizza over the wood fire oven. They have 10.00 dollar pizza night on wed among other delicious things. We decided to extend our stay so we were moved to another room whitin the victorian wing and when we requested a certain room and we got it! (our previous room had been reserved, otherwise we would have stayed there). I love the history of this place, there's so much to do as a couple (we did a private sunset cruise) dining, shopping and the beautiful beach (is now cleaner than ever).
I feel almost like someone else to the reigns of this place and made it better. Not very many stuffed up/sour face people left. I would absolutely go back.

Room Tip: The partial view from the towers is superb (6th floor) also the Victorian room facing the garden has...

Service is basically non existent. Their staff is obviously overwhelmed. Beds are super hard! Bedroom had roaches probably from no one picking up the room service trays outside. You have to pay to rent an umbrella. Beach towels are free, but threadbare. Main pool is a zoo. Good luck finding a chaise. No service for setting up on the beach. Ate at Sheerwater and they did not have an outside table like we requested over a month ago available. We were also rushed in and out for a $300+ dinner! Smores on the Beach was nice though, but it was very help yourself as well. Bring water though for smores, as they don't always have some. Hotel is super crowded as well with day visitors not actually staying there.

Basically, you are paying for the beach location. The hotel looks beautiful for visitors, but actually stinks to stay in. Service is super down hill since KSL bought it. We will be staying at the Loews next time or just renting a house.

We had a very injoyable stay. Our room was not huge but very stylish. Old walls and woodwork but up to date decor. And it is more like a resort than a hotel. You don't have to leave if you don't want to. They have everything. The Beach is wonderful and not crowded as it is huge. And as we were not traveling with kids, the adults only pool is great! I can't say much about the restaurants. We went into town to eat most of the time. The only negative is it is very pricey.

This is a fabulous hotel. We took our kids for Spring Break. There is alot to do at the hotel with the pool, beach and activities for the kids. There are alot of restaurants in the hotel as well as within in walking distance. The Sunday brunch was the BEST I have ever had. The kids still talk about how good it was. This is a beautiful hotel and worth the money. We will come back soon.

Room Tip: The rooms that face the beach are awesome. Waking up to that view is worth the money.

I really love the Del. It feels like a home away from home. The location is perfect. The weather is great. Great surrounding restaurants. It's an old Historic building but it has character. I had one incident but the director took care of it instantly. Very impressed. I will be back next year. Great service.
