“Beautiful old world resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Beautiful hotel and grounds. Staff mostly very professional and accomodating. Very restful four night stay. Wonderful facial done by Darthe at the spa. Bathroom could use updating and i would prefer a room with an outdoor balcony.

I only needed a 1 night stay in town. The older part of the property had a lot of character and charm. Our room was in this wing and though the buidling was old the property is updated and the room was nice - just a bit small. It ws very clean with everything you need - large closet - cozy robe - iron - Keurig coffee machine with comp coffee.This hotel has a lot of courtyards - places to sit and relax - pools - by the water. Several places to eat and even late at night. We grabbed a bite at the Luna Bar after the concert around 11:30 PM - a bit $$$ (a beer was $7.00) - but you are paying for convenience - the burger ($16.00) and the pizza ($15.00) was excellent. The front desk and valet were very nice and helpful with info on the area. I would recommend.

Room Tip: Take time to walk around the property and admire some of the quaint features from way back...if you...

This old school, hotel/club has undergone a number of renovations and building additions over the years. Thus this resort is a large sprawling, sometimes confusing, complex with a hodge-podge assortment of architecture, i.e. - Spanish colonial cloister, 1970s pink tower, and the modern glass and chrome beach club. The old cloister is still charming with arched colonnades and beautiful tropical landscaping, though portions of the interior have been redone in “Miami modern” making for an interesting mix of décor – sleek and modern versus ornate and gilded age. Overall, I found the service to be good, but keep in mind this hotel caters to large business organizations, so lots of diverse guests in an around the hotel and grounds. The room and bath were basic luxury but quite comfortable and clean. As a beach bum, the biggest inconvenience for me was the ten-minute shuttle ride to the beach club. The beach was quite nice but beach set-ups so-so. The pools and club deck were enjoyable, but it did get crowded. For best lounging, head to the southern-most pool and ask for Collin. He was GREAT waiter/attendant!

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for the cloister if you like old world traditional feel. If you like chrome and glass...

Beautiful grounds but hospitality leaves a lot to be desired. Good for the off season price and if you use amenities, but staff is unknowledgeable and inattentive.... hotel caters to conference and convention crowd.

This hotel and spa is perfect. Enjoy a massage and relax in the spa for hours. Food delicious and amazing staff. Great to get away for a staycation. They always have Florida resident rates. This place is worth it. Getting a cabana one day is a must. Make sure you ask for Carmen. She is the absolute friendliest person ever! Truly cares about making sure you are loving your stay and are relaxed.

We just returned from a five day family vacation at the Boca Raton resort and had a fabulous time. Warmly welcomed by the most helpful bell man ever, he told us about the property and gave us his recommendations both on and off the resort as he took us to our room in the Tower. The room was fabulous with gorgeous views of the marina and ocean beyond. Travelled with two teenage girls and the bathroom was large enough to accommodate all of us.

We took the boat to the beach club two of the five days too enjoy the ocean and activity there. Had two fabulous lunches at the poolside restaurant. You cannot go wrong with the salads. So yummy! The first and last day, we preferred to stay at the quieter pool by the tower and enjoyed the ping pong table and lunch. We ate off the resort for two business suppers with husband's clients in Mizner Park but enjoyed a fabulous meal the last evening at Cielo listening to live music and enjoying the sunset views. We ate breakfast at the palm court several mornings, which was terrific, and opted for Serendipity's grab and go breakfast offerings of fruit and yogurt on the other mornings.

Our experience of the hotel and staff was first rate. Everyone had a smile for us, and the bellman greeted us each morning by name. We will definitely be returning! Thank you Boca Raton Resort!!!

I agree with others though about one thing, the daily parking rate was high when you are a guest of the hotel. It is hard to justify the $27/day especially when the resort is so wonderful that you don't really need to leave it. Unlike some others' comments ~ when we did need to get to the car is was brought quickly with no problem at all.

Room Tip: We were in the tower and the views are lovely!
