I just returned from 4 nights at the Hotel Del with my husband and 1 of my children (age 10.) We had a nice time. It wasn't the greatest vacation, but it was a good. I had wanted to stay at Hotel Del for years, so it was fun for the 1 time experience. The hotel itself, has a beautiful old worlds exterior and it sits on a very nice beach. We had booked a Victorian Room (for $289 on a promo rate- incl breakfast, resort fee and parking) which would have made for a very poor experience. When we checked in and realized this, I asked about an upgrade. We were offered an Ocean View room on the 5th floor of the new building (the tower?) for $100, and after saying "no, thank you" to spending that much more, the very nice and accommodating front desk agent said that she could do it for $25 a night! The view from the 5th floor room was incredible! The building, from the outside, doesn't look very nice. But the room was nicely decorated and comfortable. Needless to say, the weather was cooler than expected, and we spent a lot of time in our room and on our balcony, enjoying the beach! The breakfast buffet was good, not great. There was a lot to choose from, but it's not the high quality that you may find in a 5 star hotel. The pool is nice for kids , but you cannot see the ocean from it. We really enjoyed morning walks on the beach. When we looked up the price for the room we were in, it was in the $700's. I would not advise that anyone spend near this to stay at this hotel (it's not the Ritz/Four Seasons experience), but for the low price we paid, I would recommend it for a couple of nights.
