“Our favorite vacation spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We just returned from our 6th stay at Sundy House and are already making plans for next winter. The magnificent tropical setting makes you feel like you are very far away; yet you are only a few blocks from the restaurants and shops on Atlantic Ave. Accommodations are very comfortable and the continental breakfast is delicious. Restaurant is excellent. All staff are friendly and helpful.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Stayed in Room 11, with blue & white gingham draped four poster bed and good-sized balcony overlooking swimming 'pond' in a tropical garden setting. Plenty of space in the room, even though there was a lot of dark wood furniture. We didn't think the staff were that friendly and they kept out of sight most of the time, except for the valet who was very helpful.
Breakfast was great and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the February warmth.
We didn't eat in the restaurant although it looked inviting as did the bar area. There are loads of restaurants in Delray so it seemed a shame not to go into town in the evening.
The Sundy House is about 20 minutes walk to the beach but lots to look at on the way and I think the hotel provide a shuttle service.
One negative point about Delray is that a very fast train line passes right through the centre of town - only one/two trains an hour but they can be about a mile long, accompanied by loud tooting of the horn as they go (day and night). They are not as frequent during the night. The hotel has aircon so not a problem if you have that switched on, of course!

Room Tip: Room 11 was on the first floor with a balcony which meant you had a super outlook onto the garden.

Stayed in Room #9, wish the bed was mounted more securely, the place is a lover's dream :)....however; it was a dream night. Everything was perfect. Got the cottage for my birthday in 2 months. So love her. Staying in room #5.profit! for both of us.

Stayed here in one of the cottages and would love to stay again! It was superb! It was like your own little home tucked away in paradise. You would never suspect that downtown Delray was just a skip away. Cab service was great. Brunch is delectable. I have been to Sundy house a few times before, for brunch and it's always been memorable. I've never stayed in anything but the cottage, so i can't tell you how other rooms are. If you're going to stay here...make it memorable! STAY IN A COTTAGE :) you won't be dissapointed!

This hotel is not a big corporate one, or a new "boutique" hotel, it's the real thing--an older set of buildings in beautiful gardens with fish ponds, trees, nooks to sit in. The staff could not have been nicer or warmer, from the front desk to valet stand to housekeeping and maintenance. Yes, my room did require some work from maintenance--but everyone was so nice about it, I hardly minded.

Be aware that weekends are likely to have wedding parties--that comes with the territory. Before I left, a couple asked me to take their photo. She was about to give birth, obviously (a boy) and they'd been married there a year before and were back to have brunch before their life changed for a good long time. That's classic Sundy House, I think. Not the quietest, not quite up to certain kinds of taste/standards--but a wonderful place that people love.

My one request would be one more lamp per room--the balconys, so nice to sit out on, also mean there are overhangs that keep light from coming in through the windows.

(Refrigerators & nice Keurig coffee machines in the rooms a good bonus, I'll add--and the little pool, where you swim with the fishes by a stone waterfall, and the world is entirely happy.)

I know lots of people like this one, but it wasn't for us. The big thing is the gardens and natural pool, for good reason. I didn't try the food, but the garden setting is lovely. However, the accommodations are really lacking. We were in an "equestrian" room - kinda ugly and zero relation stylewise to the rest of the hotel. Our bed was too soft, the pillows lumpy, and lots of mold in the bathroom. And dark, dark, dark. We escaped after one night.

Our family went out for a New Year's Eve celebration at the Sundy House restaurant for their four course prix fixe menu. Upon arrival we were promptly seated at the Gazebo table in their back courtyard. The table was absolutely beautiful and the courtyard had an incredible ambiance to it. The tables were set far enough apart from other diners that we were all able to clearly hear each other and enjoy the outdoor atmosphere.
Our waiter, Valentin, was very attentive. My mother in law is a big fan of chef Lindsay Autry from Top Chef Texas. We made the request earlier in the evening to meet her if it was possible. Since it was New Year's Eve we knew she would be very busy in the kitchen.
Our food was fantastic. We all had something different from the menu and it was all delicious. As we were finishing up - chef Lindsay stopped by our table and said hello! It was a wonderful way to end our meal and my mother in law was very happy to meet her.
I've been to many of the other restaurants in the Delray Beach area and this is by far one of the best.
