It is difficult to review the Boca Raton Resort & Club as though it were a unitary whole, when in fact it is a sprawling resort requiring a shuttle bus to get from one building to another, let alone to the associated beach club. We stayed at the Boca Bungalows, which are a healthy walk from the main hotel.
The best thing about our room was that it spacious: a good-sized bedroom, a comfortable living room with a terrace, a dining area with a large table, and an eat-in kitchen stocked with china and cutlery. In addition, the bathroom offered a separate bathtub and shower.
Those who stay at the main hotel and park their cars have to pay a stiff valet fee. At the Bungalows, parking is free. When you check in, ask for very detailed direction to get to the Bungalows: it’s not easy to find the right place, especially at night. Also, ask for a card for your dashboard so that the gates will open automatically for you. We heard such a card existed, but did not get it, so we had to put our room key into a slot, which did not always work easily.
WiFi is also free, but not quite as strong as one might wish it to be. I’m not sure how well it works in the main hotel.
We had two flat-panel TVs, one in the bedroom and one in the living room. It would have been nice to have a DVD player, but there was none. The bedroom did have a clock radio that has a dock for iPods.
A golf course adjoins the Bungalows. I don’t play, so I don’t know how good the course is, but it was a relaxing place to walk. I suppose it would be wise to stay away from the iguanas, if you see one, as I did. There are also Har-Tru tennis courts at the resort’s fitness center. The Bungalows have their own swimming pool.
If you care about having space to stretch out, the type of room we had was ideal. If you are a stickler for the latest in interior decoration, then the room would have been acceptable but less than optimal.
