“Great Location”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

We spent a 5 day extended weekend at Wright By The Sea and enjoyed it. It is located on a sandy beach that is great for walking and looking for shells. The grounds are well kept and the pool was very nice.

The rooms are a bit old but are well equipped. I would not hesitate to visit again the next time we are in the area.

Spent 6 nights at WBTS and now lament I'm back in Ohio. The facility is a throwback to "Old Florida" in the best sense. Well kept, clean, lush, refreshing, quiet, friendly..... (did I say relaxing)
Jack and his staff do an excellent job of keeping the apartments in charming shape. This isn't a condo community.....it's more of just a community. Likely not for the those who desire a "no holes barred" experience. Just right for those who want a relaxing, easy paced retreat. Worth noting - weddings apparently are held on the grounds during some weekends. Not sure if that changes things....I'd sure like to be invited to one held there. Also, no restaurant on grounds or within walking distance but tons by car within 5 minutes over the causeway.
We loved Wright by the Sea.

We just returned from a quick weekend get-away at Wright by the Sea and absolutely loved it! We will definately return. Even though it's an older facility, our 2nd floor 1 bedroom apartment was wonderfully clean, comfortable and tropical. Every room is overlooking the ocean and the grounds, pool and beach are immaculate. The staff were extemely friendly and accomodating. Thank you Wright by the Sea, for a perfect weekend!

Room Tip: The 2nd floor gets a wonderful breeze

I decided to go to this hotel after reading all the good reviews it had been given by other members. I was not disappointed. We rented a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment. The apartment is very compact but has everything you would need such as, fully equipped kitchen, nice living room and dining table. Beach cabanas are included in the room price as well as beach towels. Service is friendly and flexible. Beautiful well kept green areas, nice pool and beach.
Location in perfect because it is very close to Atlantic Bld where you find all the restaurants, small shops and bars and yet you are in a very quiet peaceful place at the hotel itself. I would not hesitate to recommend this wonderful small hotel.

I just returned home from another glorious two weeks at Wright By the Sea in Delray Beach, FL. This is my favorite vacation destination! I love the lush tropical landscaping with coconut palms and banana trees, beautiful private lawn and pool, and spacious private beach within steps of my apartment there. The customer-focused staff is continually adding enhancements for the enjoyment of the guests and responds to every need. And the community close by is also improving to add great new shopping, dining and entertainment options within a matter of blocks away from the resort. I also love spending time on my balcony, lounging around or swimming at the pool, or walking and collecting shells on the beach. The apartments at Wright By the Sea are so attractive, fresh and clean as well as completely equipped.. As I have said before, it is my home away from home for a truly relaxing getaway!

Room Tip: Second-floor rooms have a better view of the ocean.

I believe I just found paradise! This place is cozy, beautiful and functional. They have perfect size apartments for a family. The furniture is not modern but is perfect to give you that island/ beach style mood. The pool area is just gorgeous. They have a gas grill available for the guest with a kiosk and tables that will give us a cozy dinner by the beach. They also have game area so the whole family can enjoy it at it fullest. Laundry room and library available as well. The ocean is beautiful in september I believe all year round. Tottaly recommend this place. The staff deserves a 5 stars as well. Patty and Jack were awesome. Thank you for a great weekend getaway. The only problem is that there are no annual passes here!

My partner and I found this place serendipitously as we explored Delray Beach. We stayed two nights, and loved it. The rooms are delightfully decorated, extremely comfortable, and immaculate. The air conditioning is extremely efficient which I appreciated because I am not used to the heat in Florida! There is a large grassy common area (like a private park) with a nice pool, covered barbecue area, and games, also lovingly maintained. The staff were EXTREMELY friendly. Our first night they even delivered a couple of fresh bananas from their own tree! Guests can use the laundry which was very convenient. The hotel faces a beautiful beach where the hotel provides guests with private cabanas and lounge chairs. This is a very kid-friendly place. The days we were there a rather noisy and obnoxious family commandeered the pool, which was kind of a drag for me, but that's just because I'm an old spinster with a low tolerance for other people's kids sometimes. The place is quite accessible with ground floor units, handicapped parking and a ramp. I think it would be an awesome venue for reunions because all ages will enjoy it. It would be a beautiful place for an outdoor wedding too. Just a wonderful balance of professional level service with a home-y, laid back atmosphere. I can highly recommend.

Room Tip: We stayed in a one bedroom unit next to the laundry room, but there was no noise. It was very conve...
