Reviewed July 15, 2011

my husband and i completely fell in love with the sundy house when we visited. it offers a beautiful tropical garden setting and a freshwater pool with fish in it. there are mango and banana trees and sometimes two macaws wandering around. we ate a "trial meal" to see how we liked it, and wound up getting married here in may and staying in one of the rooms. the decor in the rooms varies a lot, so whether you like the room you're given may depend on your taste (we had a room with a suspended bed, sort of a seaside theme - it was interesting!) the food is good, the service is good. HOWEVER, if you are planning to stay over the weekend be warned that this is an extraordinarily popular venue for weddings and events - we visited multiple weekends during the wedding planning process and there was ALWAYS a wedding or another event going on. they do end fairly early (10 or 11pm) and they tend to be smaller weddings but just be prepared that it may not be the tranquil, isolated paradise on a friday or saturday night that you might be hoping for.

My husband and I just stayed here for a 2 day get away. The room we had was nice, although we had issues with the A/C. The gardens are amazing as is the pool. It is fresh water and there are fish in it that swim as you do. The breakfast was brought to our room each morning and was yummy and plentiful.

First of all the Sundy House has a great setting with a lot of nature and an original design. The pool features live fish and blends in naturally of the whole setting. There is a lot to see and it is like a small botanical garden. The rooms are nice and fit to the overall setting, everything was perfectly clean. The buffet breakfast featured a wide variety of foods including fresh fruit. Service was outstanding and people very friendly. Highly recommended.

read great reviews and grounds were amazing- mango trees- banana trees- fantastic gardens- little fish in the pool/lagoon, but I was willing to accept the "charm" of that. our room- # 7- was small and dark but, ok. The woman at check-in was friendly but said that no larger rooms were available.The trouble started on our way back to the room at nite when my husband asked the front desk about getting a bottle of water (none in the in-room frig) and he was told that a glass of water would cost him $8.00 but that he could walk three blocks to the local bodega (which he did). when he returned with the waters, he found my son and I in the room, staring at a huge 'palmetto bug' , i.e, a monster cockroach, walking the floor, way too near the bed. Well, it was much too big to crush with my shoe so I dropped a plate onto it and was surprised the thing didn't just lift it off of itself! I called the front desk and was asked if i wanted them to send someone in to kill/remove it. I was told that they are surrounded by gardens and that gardens yield bugs but that this happens rarely. I was told earlier in the day that no other (larger,second floor) rooms were available but when my husband told them we'd be leaving they offerred us half off our rate or another room (that hadn't been there before) Upon learning that the damn things fly, we decided that we couldn't sleep with both eyes closed without moving to the marriott!

i am writing about my last and final visit to the resturant. while a very interesting setting, the service and food is very uneven. i made a reservation requesting an outside table several days in advance following up with call to assure that my request would be honored. on the way, i called again to say that we would be there and to save a table. i was put on hold for ten minutes. when i arrived, i was told that there were no outside tables and was placed at and odd table in the middle of a hall agains an overhead door. eventually, we were served but service was slow. our waitress removed our forks from the plates we had just used to save for our main course. we requested clean forks. we had to ask for water and butter refils. there is no graciousness about the place which could, if managed well be a wonderful place to entertain. rooms are dumpy and the place looks most like a bed and breakfast.

My wife and I chose Sundy House because we thought it would be quiet and relaxing. The fact that there is not a lot of guests and that the Sundy House is set in the Taru Gardens is nice, but the fact that the Sundy House caters to birthday parties and weddings is not. If you go, plan on loud music on both Friday and Saturday evenings!

My husband and I recently spent 5 nights at the Sundy House. I had read that Travel and Leisure Magazine gave them a stellar reveiw, and I was looking foward to our getaway. I should mention that there was much I enjoyed. The setting is beautiful-- set back from the road with lovely gardens, but very close to the best restaurants and shopping on Atlantic Ave. However, the rooms were dark, and the bathrooms tired, and although the view from our balcony was scenic, the front of our room faced a parking lot. The staff was very nice, and the restaurant was wonderful. All things considered, I would return. They are stil the nicest place to stay in Delray, and the atmosphere around the pool is peaceful and lush.
