“Clean and spacious but an older resort.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

We stayed here in early April 2014. I was pleased with the size of the 3 bedroom, 3 bath unit. Everything was extremely clean, however, the resort is old. The friendly front desk staff stated that the resort is about 30 years old, and it shows. Thirty years ago this place must've been an easy five stars, however, times have changed. That's not to say that its " bad", however it could use a contemporary makeover. Beach access is a five minute walk. Chairs are provided in each unit, however, they need to add umbrellas as well. Unlike Fort Lauderdale beach, there are no palm trees to shade you from the direct sun. Other beachfront resorts here provided umbrellas for their customers. Ventura should consider doing the same.

Resort activities were minimal, ie popcorn night, hotdog night, etc, however this was not a problem for us because we were on the go most of time anyway. The pool was unbelievably clean and the housekeeping crew were friendly and constantly cleaning. My unit faced the rear and I never had problems finding a parking spot. The beds were firm and comfortable. You will find many people walking/running along A1A in the mornings and evenings. I opted to do the same, but traveled along the residential streets behind there resort, observing and admiring the beautiful landscaping of the homes. Nice stay overall.

We’re so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Ventura in Boca Raton. Our staff are very proud of the work they do and it is always appreciated when it shows. We certainly do understand the continual need to update and upgrade items and we have begun that process in the past few years. Recently we have replaced the living room furniture and pool furniture, upgraded the living room TV to a 47-inch flat screen TV, and added new flat screen TV’s in the bedrooms. We are happy about the work we have done so far and excited for the work we will continue to do, including having umbrellas available to guests. Thank you for your comments and we hope you stay with us again next time you’re in the area.

We liked it here though there were a couple of things that were bothersome. We were placed in the wrong unit at first so we were in two different places in one week.
We liked that it was a short walk to a beautiful beach and the grounds were very nice and well kept. The unit itself was mostly very nice except for the kitchen. The tiles were broken and very dirty on the base boards around and under the sink.
Carpets, bedding, etc. were clean and in good repair. The staff was helpful and considerate.

Room Tip: Ask a lot of questions about cleanliness. Bldg. D was better than Bldg. A.

Thank you very much for your review of Ventura at Boca Raton. I’m sorry to hear about the mistake made when you checked-in. I understand how frustrating that can be. I apologize for the issues in the kitchen and have addressed this with the staff. I am glad that you enjoyed the proximity to the beach; being right across the street is a great feature. I hope we will get the pleasure of having you stay with us again.

It’s so great to hear you had a wonderful time at Ventura. You’re right, the space is generous and the atrium is a great place to have a morning cup of coffee. Thank you so much for your comments and we hope to see you again in the future.

We stayed here for a week. This is one of the older resorts, needs updated. Not great, but I'm sure there are worse. It is located on a very small piece of land. You are either at the pool (which was nice) or in your condo. The parking is limited, a few car ports otherwise you just park in parking lot (small). You must carry your luggage to unit which could be quite a walk, no luggage carts. The unit was large, we had 3bed, 3 bath,a very cut up unit. Lots of stairs to get to 2 bed and 2 bath. There was a section in middle of unit that was glassed in on 3 sides- other was wall of other unit. I have no idea what this is suppose to be used for, there were sliding doors to go out, this area is open on top to weather, birds etc. It really needed attention, looked rather trashy (no trash, just not pristine area). Kitchen had ONLY essentials. Washer and dryer nice, large in kitchen area. . Beach across street, access very handy. Office staff nice and helpful. They know they need to get it together, now they just need to work on getting it spruced up. Could be a much nicer place, but needs more than mopping the floors. It's one of those places that you could tolerate, but probably would look for something else next time.

We stayed in c1. There were a ton of cock roaches in the downstairs bathroom and kitchen. They kept saying they would come and spray but didn't. Every time we ran the dishwasher it leaked all over the floor. The upstairs bedroom had the entire front off the dresser drawer. The chair cushion was torn and so was the screen on the door. There was supposed to be a T.V. In the downstairs bedroom but there was not. When I approached the manager he said one word....sorry and walked away

The Ventura is in the perfect location. It is a cute little resort that needs a big face lift. It has a lot of potential. Others staying seemed to have units that were better maintained. The units are huge. Might go back if we could stay in a differed unit.

Definitely avoid unit C1!

Room Tip: Avoid unit C1

Lots of great things about this place. I love the beach equipment they provided us with and little get togethers with food. Beach which is safe and clean is across the street. Decorated very nicely and beautifull pool!

This was a great spot to stay. In a gorgeous part of Boca Raton. Right across from the water and there was a beautiful, almost private beach across the street. The unit was very large. We had a unit with two bedrooms and two baths and it worked very well for two couples as the layout is such that there was quite a bit of privacy. The unit was clean, comfortable and the kitchen well stocked with like-new pans and other kitchen necessities. Everything was in great working order. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it is more than a few decades old and I didn't want anyone to think it is super luxurious.

It was such a pleasure to just walk out the door and be in such a beautiful area. Lots of shopping and restaurants are close by.

Kathy and Vicky in the office were so friendly and helpful. I recommend the Ventura 100%.
