“Guest since 18 years”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2009

The Berkshire on the Ocean is like my second home. I come here with my family since many years, often more than once a year! The appartements are very cosy in the typically floridian style! Big enough for four persons (grownups). The pool area is very private, so you can relax and enjoy the sun without having your neighbor shoulder by shoulder! Above all Delray Beach is - in my opinion - the greatest place in Florida. Nearly no tourism, very peaceful and clean and a GREAT BEACH! And Berkshire on the Ocean is the best place you can stay in Delray Beach (an sometimes also Delray South Shore Club).

Wonderful location, great staff and owners. Just feet from the sandy beach and only a short walk to downtown Delray. Clean rooms and beautiful grounds. We were so happy with Berkshire on the Ocean that we immediately bought four weeks.

  • Liked — cleanliness and location to beach, pool, and town
  • Disliked — nothing

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2008

This resort was a part of one of my most favorite vacations. The little resort only has 20-25 rooms, and what it lacks in size it makes up for with charm. The small size doesn't allow for many amentities, but it does have games to borrow from the front desk, a putting green, shuffle board, heated pool, a charming courtyard, and a private beach. My fiance and I spent many days sleeping on the beach, with no disturbances other than the crashing waves. We did some fantastic snorkling and visited a nearby nature preserve on a hunt for alligators. The nearby downtown area is small and lined with locally owned shops and restaurants (You have to try Boston's).

The rooms were nothing luxurious, cyramic tile and block walls. The kitchen fit one person comfortably, otherwise you are going to be dancing around each other while trying to cook (it was more like a full kitchen stuffed in a closet). I mean this endearingly, because I personally love this resort! While out on the putting green, the ambiance/look/feel made me feel like I had time traveled back to the 50's. The rooms do not have private patios, but do offer plastic chairs in front of the door facing the courtyard.

Note - all rooms open to the courtyard and only the upper level end rooms might catch a glimpse of the ocean.

  • Liked — The ambiance and private beach!
  • Disliked — The small kitchen.
