Dover House
Reviewed December 20, 2013

Dover House may be a great place for people looking to go to the beach; however, for those just wanting a place to stay in comfort, this is not the place. The front desk people were very nice but the rest was way below standard for me. It is a hotel made into a small apartment. Getting into the room/condo was a job by itself. The doors were so hard to get in. The condo was very old, but their attempt to update was so so. They tried. For me, I would stay at a hotel than here. This is one of my rare dislikes.

This was a trade through RCI. We traded our week in the mountains for a week at the beach. We had a view of the ocean from every room. The unit was small but well appointed. There was a great pool and very friendly staff. The location was great. It was just a short walk to downtown with all the Delray has to offer. We could ride our bikes right along the ocean and had plenty of long walks on the beach. The shelling was also outstanding.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for the second floor. It affords a much better view of the ocean.

We've visited this resort several times over the years but NEVER AGAIN!!! The resort was totally refurbished and re-painted two years ago but looks like nothing has ever been done. The paint is coming off the walls, the laminate flooring is lifting, the fridge and freezer are ancient and look like they've never been defrosted, and the plastic covered sofas and chairs are horrible. This is supposed to be a silver crown resort - come on, RCI, get these classifications sorted! You certainly wouldn't pay good money to stay here.
Added to this, there are centipedes crawling through the rooms. over the floors and walls, furniture and work surfaces in the kitchen. We found an American cockroach (called locally a water bug, but just the largest cockroaches you can get) in the bathroom.
The (mainly new) staff at the resort are trying very hard, but the quality is so low at the moment that a huge amount needs doing. We'll never visit this resort again and feel very sorry for people visiting in the near future.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else!

My husband and I (in our early 50's) stayed at the Dover House in late August. My first impression was that the place was "average". Well, that quickly changed once we got to our unit and looked around the place. The unit was fabulous. It was small in comparison to other timeshare resorts we have stayed at but it had everything that you could need. Large bedroom with a King size bed (with the MOST comfortable bed/pillows), compact bathroom with shower/tub, small kitchen with a compact fridge and freezer and a good size living room area. We sat outside our unit on the patio every morning with our coffee and every evening with our wine. The resort was well maintained with a clean, warm outdoor pool with lots of chairs. Right across from the beach. We bought 2 cheap beach chairs to use for the week - best $20 investment we could make! I would highly recommend this resort and can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: We stayed on the main floor which meant there was a roof to keep you cool when sitting outside.

Dover House is an older resort but has been maintained fairly well. It definitely needs some update. No garbage disposal , no and amenities. We asked for toilet paper and they said it was no included. You could replace towels every day. I would stay again for the location. It is right across from beach and a great walk along Atlantic Ave in Delray.u husband enjoyed the pool

This was a very nice vacation, the units are right across from the beach. Its clean and nice.
I am a Hilton member so the rooms dont compare to Hilton Property , but Is good enough for me to give up some amenities for the location I had.

Room Tip: All rooms will be accross from the beach

The best thing about this property is that it is a brilliant location just across from a really popular beach.
Parking is outside each unit with a permit displayed in the car which avoids beachgoers taking up your parking space.
The units are a bit basic- no luxuries but are very clean and have full kitchen with dishwasher. The kitchens look a bit worn and the fridge had definitely seen better days.
The resort has its own pool that is fenced with a lock so only resort users get access to it. Water warm and clean.
Delray Beach is a nice area with lots of shops and good restaurants to choose from. All within easy walking distance.
