“This is a pretty good spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

We stayed in a room directly facing the ocean. You had to cross a very busy street (A1-A) to get to the beach. It is a little touristy,so if you are looking for quiet,don't go here. Our unit was a little small&outdated,but we didn't spend much time there. We had some ant issues in the kitchen that was a little annoying. Cleaning crew was non-existent. Overall,we thought it was ok,we would go back for the location.

The location for this property is excellent. It's right across from the beach, and just a few minute walk to Atlantic Avenue.
The service is adequate, however don't bother asking for another soap or change for the laundry, or expect salt and pepper in the rooms, it's pretty barebones.
The pull out coach could use a thicker mattress as it's not very comfortable.
Location makes up for it all though if you want to be at the beach.
There is parking there which is great!

Staff was nice and helpful, the rooms were just old, outdated and very small. not any amenities like at a regular resort, you have to pay to use the washer/ dryer. But on the up side, the location is pretty good, you can see the beach from the room. The kitchen is pretty functionable. would recommend dover house if you just want a small beachy condo type place that's close to the beach.

Delray is one of Florida's nicest towns and Dover House is beautifully sited right across from the ocean and a lovely wide sandy beach. While it is a short walking distance to Atlantic Ave. main commercial area, the DH encircles a well landscaped area devoid of flashy shops and businesses........looks a bit like a country club. The units are very clean and well equipped, if a bit spartan (more like an office decor but serviceable).. the staff is excelllent and very accommodating. Consider bringing or buying beach chairs since the beach concession rents lounges and umbrellas at $10 per hr. or $30 per day.
Will definitely return.

I have stayed at the Dover House in the past and I was so happy that I booked it again in September. The service was excellent and the staff went out of their way to help with everything. The location is the best! Love the shuttle service to downtown and can walk to the beach. Wonderful restaurants within walking distance and I can't wait to go back again....

I stayed at Dover House once before about 8 years ago and although it was a nice place at that time, they have really fixed the place up and moderized it. The Delrey Beach area has really taken off with fine dining, the strip has become one of the hot designation for night life. Dover House being about 1 mile from the strip, maintains its quiet nature. This is not one of the tourist trap areas, like so many of the florida resorts I have stayed at over the years.

My wife and I had (another) great stay at the DH. We were on the second floor with a view of the ocean. Our one bedroom condo had everything we needed. The location is excellent, right across from the beach and walking distance to all of the town restaurants and attractions.

The staff was friendly and helpful. When our door lock keycard lost its power, we called the emergency number and a person showed up in about 20 minutes and made us new keys. Another huge attraction of DH is free off-street parking.
