"Great place to stay"
The room was great, the staff was friendly and the restaurant was surprisingly good for both dinner and breakfast. Dining room and bar have great sea views.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our experience, NOT GREAT! We read about the mandatory Valet Parking fee, (they changed the parking across the street from the hotel to Valet Only Parking) but the beach towel fee and beach chair fee, $25.00 a day was a Big Surprise! I don't recall reading that in the hotel description. Our room was fine, except they gave us a room wedged into a corner, […] so that we only had half of a balcony. We booked through Expedia and booked an ocean front room, they gave us a first floor pool view, they said too bad, we should have booked with them. There was a very loud group of kids that ran around the hotel all night, at 2:30 AM, I called the front desk, they sent security, again, they said, then again at 3:30, the security had to come up again!

"Very friendly hotel right at the beach"
I had a very friendly and professional we come upon arrival from the receptionist as as well as from the valet parking guys. The hotel is located really right at the beach. Beach towels are obviously provided by the friendly beach staff. They also have a very nice restaurant and a good chef right at the beach. Food was excellent service was very friendly. I […] cannot really find any negative points, eventually the rooms need some redoing Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Very pleasant stay"
We spent a long weekend at the Delray Sands Resort. The resort was nice and we especially loved spending time by the pool and the hot tub, with it's little waterfall. The weather was unusually cool because of a strong wind, so that made the hot tub even more enjoyable. The room was decorated in a modern, aqua theme and the bed very comfortable. The […] staff were all friendly and helpful - from the front desk folks to the valets. However, the absolutely best part of our stay was the wonderful Sunday brunch. It was outstanding!

"right on the beach..no crossing A1A!"
It was a repeat so we usually like it and did this time too. Room was a little smelly due to the A/C I think but overall good service and lot's of relaxing fun.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A hidden gem right on the sand"
Quaint resort right on the beach. Most hotels are across the street with no views of the ocean. This resort has un-obstructed, ocean front clean rooms, a wonderful ocean front bar and restaurant and wonderful amenities. Free beach chairs with a server that will deliver drinks and food to the beach or the pool. The bartender, Klaus, is top-notch. Would […] definitely return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel with private beach. Great."
Nice hotel with private beach. Great restaurant in hotel. Staff couldn't be any nicer. Going through expedia though we got room facing parking lot and garbage area, which they called standard room. Hotel said they could shift us of we didn't go through expedia. Got charged for soon in room when hotel said he should be freeGenuine Expedia guest review
"Delray Sands - 5 Star"
This hotel was the best hotel I have stayed at smack on the beach. My room was brand new facing the ocean and impeccable - decorated in a zen-contemporary décor- just loved it! And had dinner and breakfast in the restaurant with "the view to die for" also - food and service and ambiance was the best!!! I can't wait to go back again. I live in Boca and […] drove 20 minutes to the hotel for a much-needed break since I am a realtor and may even go there once a month since I had such a wonderful experience. This place is a winner!! It is small and intimate - nice pool, beautiful beach, great chaise lounges on the beach - all included. What more could you ask for??? Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not so nice hotel. Good staff!"
The staff was helpful, experienced and pleasant. The food was good but the choices are very limited. After an eleven night stay I no longer cared to even look at their menu.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Delray Sand Resort"
I would definitely stay at Delray Sand Resort again. I highly recommend this location to anyone who wants to relax an enjoy the beach. The staff was very friendly an courteous .. The room was very clean an spacious .. Having a restaurant on site was a bonus.. Give it a try!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the hotel was very nice and right on the beach. The view from the room was amazing!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Recommend it highly."
Change in management has resulted in many very well done improvements, and more on the way. Great private beach location. Super place to relax and good bar and great restaurant for breafast and lunch, although dinner was average. Service is superb.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Was not sure what I would get, but this was a wonderful surprise. Great hotel. Staff was fantastic. Facilities first rate and food excellent. Only 2 comments. Cocktail waitress at poolside forget my order. I had a washcloth on my bed when arrived...not folded just sort of sitting there...a little odd but no big deal.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very low key and beautiful"
Definitely and relaxing atmosphere and beautiful location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to dining, shopping and highways"
We had a newly renovated oceanfront room and it was lovely. The beach is beautiful and the service is great. An added bonus is the terrific food in their oceanfront dining room! Only drawback is guests have to walk through the pool area to get to and from the lobby of the hotel and to access oceanfront rooms in the newly renovated building.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great stay rooms are Very clean and comfortable"
Great experience awesome food and attention in the restaurant of the hotel would stay again next time I go to DelrayGenuine Expedia guest review
"New Ownership, Pros and Cons..."
I've stayed at this hotel many times under it's previous ownership. Formerly a Holiday Inn, this beachfront hotel was an excellent deal (especailly on a business expense report! No one argues with a Holiday Inn!). Now, as the Delray Sands Resort (why are you staying at a RESORT on business??) the room renovations are really lovely. They were a necessary […] upgrade. The beachfront location is simply gorgeous and just can't be beat! The cons: There is not a good cup of coffee to be had on the property. Free coffee in the lobby, coffe makers and coffee pods in the rooms are just awful. Maybe they'll improve over time, but the tase of plastic from the nasty cups provided and the overall quality of the coffee itself is just awful. Best coffee is from the on site restaurant, "Lattitudes". This restaurant has been known in the area for some time as a real gem. However, I was dissappointed this time. Fruit had always been freshly cut before serving, but this time it had clearly been in the fridge for a good while. Salad entree was certainly bagged lettuce and just not very tasty. There is nothing close by unless you have a car, which I always do when I go there. Nothing to walk to. Nothing but beach and that part is great. So, overall, the hotel is very good. The restaurant which used to be a big draw for me (sometimes clients would even meet me there for dinner/drinks!) is the con. And, if you can't tell, my morning coffee is very important to me. Yuck... :( Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect Beach Location while on Business"
Although I was on business, it was great to find this beachfront hotel normally reserved for vacationers that had all the services required for a professional stay. I enjoyed the pool and the oceanfront breakfast. Daily newspaper and free internet were an added bonus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Off the beat and path..."
Splendid hotel with a wonderful staff in the heart of a mostly residential area. Lovely, quiet and clean. If you are looking for some night life give it a pass but if it is rest you seek, leave your problems and stay a while.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Smelled Like Smoke"
We arrived an hour before check in and our room wasn't ready yet. Ok so we went on a drive and then came back. Upon check-in we were required to sign a separate document that stated that we were aware that we would be charged $200 cleaning fee if we smoked in our room. As neither my husband or I smoke this wasn't an issue. After a long day of traveling […] we were eager to enter our room and go to bed. As soon as we opened the door the musty smell of smoke overwhelmed me. As I just signed the "no smoking" sheet I told the bellman that the room smelled like smoke. He stated that he would tell the front desk as soon as he got back downstairs and they would call us. After being up since 4am we headed to bed with the door propped open. Upon checkout I told the front desk about the situation and she told me that they don't know our policies and didn't offer me any discount or anything! Upon check-in they were having the carpets cleaned so why wasn't this room done? Terrible smell and I wont be back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"nice hotel on the beach"
My husband and I booked this hotel at the last minute and were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to check in. The staff was very friendly, our room was so pretty and very clean and the location was perfect. We were on the beach and there was a nice pool, restaurant and bar. There is a $25 resort fee that includes water bottles, beach chairs, towels, […] a newspaper, and valet parking. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice facility right on the beach."
The hotel is right on the beach. The room was clean and roomy. There was a surprisingly good restaurant with outdoor tables facing the beach. The breakfasts had lots of food at reasonable prices. The only downside is that there is only valet parking, which is both an inconvenience and an added cost.Genuine Expedia guest review
This time last year, for our honeymoon, we stayed at the Seagate, 2 miles North. This year for our 1 year wedding anniversary we checked and the Seagate was booked. We were disappointed because we really enjoyed our stay which was only 30 minutes from home. We found the Delray Sands Beach Resort on Hotels.com for the same price we paid at the Seagate. […] We didn't realize until we pulled up that the Delray Sands Beach Resort is formerly the Holiday Inn. We thought, oh wow maybe it will be really nice and newly renovated. Unfortunately, our hopes disappointed us. The bed is uncomfortable and the pillows nearly go flat when you touch them, not mention when you lay you head on them. The air conditioner sounds like something inside is trying to get out. This kept me up most of the nights. Saturday morning a screaming baby woke me. I completely understand and realize there is nothing we can do about an unhappy child. However, I can't understand why the walls are so thin, especially after a name change and renovation. The refrigerator was sticky and dirty. The balcony had soda or coffee spill stains. We had a towel with ripped corners. Needless to say, we are disappointed with the money we spent to stay here. The staff was nice and the restaurant was ok. We had breakfast and dinner. Then decided to go to a cafe on the Ave instead for the next morning for breakfast which was about $25 cheaper and excellent. We were happy with the one hour extension on our check out so we could walk on the beach before heading back to Fort Lauderdale. Take this for what is worth but we won't be back and as locals we won't recommend this "resort" to our friends and family. I hope this is helpful for those interested in this location. Again, for what it's worth, I have emailed this same message directly to the hotel and I haven't heard back from them, it's been about 4 days now. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great for family beach vacation"
Nice hotel, right on beach. Nice pool and hot tub. Great having access to beach lounge chairs, towels, umbrellas, etc. Hotel restaurant right on water and reasonably priced with great kids menu, good food. My only complaint was that the staff seemed miserable. I felt like I was inconveniencing them. Otherwise, kids and I had a great stay.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Very nice hotel on the beach. Beautiful pool."
We stayed 2 nights. We enjoyed this hotel because it is on the beach and it has a very nice pool and jacuzzi and it is possible to eat in their restaurant. Its location is convenient. Close to Linton Bld with its shops (Publix, Ross...) and restaurants (Outback, Applebee...) We didn't like the "100% Valet parking" requirement. The breakfast is very […] expensive. But we would be more than happy to come back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Lovely hotel, great location. Beautiful beach and nice pool. They are in process of renovating, our walls needed some patching. We loved eating on the restaurants terrace , great food but terrible coffee.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gorgeous Location, Needs an Update"
Place has all the fixings to be a really quaint, little gem. Room was nicely put together (TV channels weren't up-to-date), the restaurant had fantastic food, and again, the neighborhood was stunning...problem is, it's a bit run down. Needs some TLC and a little cash infusion.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value on the beach in Delray"
On beach in pricy Delray? Save money at re-flagged Holiday Inn; good all around value, decent location, and service was great for the most part (dining host needs work). This was business extended to family vacation and our kids had fun between the beach, pools, hot tub, etc. Mix of families & couples here, and restaurant was good and reasonable. It […] is a bit of a hike North to Atlantic Avenue, so having a car is an advantage. Areas areas of potential improvement are that pastel mint color (go with a neutral) in the poorly painted and poorly lit bathroom, better ventilation in the bathroom and room to get rid of the humidity, a very loud AC, and cleanliness details in the bathroom. There was some weird black stuff, maybe fake eyelashes & black mascara, on the walls in the bathroom. Anyway, it was a little gross and despite a good imagination, I couldn't really figure out how fake eyelashes would be smeared on the walls, and I cleaned it up myself. The maids might look for details like this. I'd stay here again. Another travel thing I'd share - the train stops about 10 minutes from anything in Delray and is super cheap and convenient. I highly recommend it. Also, nearby Mizner Park is worth checking out, sort of a prettier and more accessible Rodeo Drive. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just an old Holiday Inn!"
The room was moldy and musty and very disappointing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Surprised by new management with resort fees and valet parking. We have enjoyed this inn for years with beautiful location. Surprises began with parking, continued with unfriendly and unhelpful girl at check in who would not give us the room with a balcony that we had booked, and continued with maids who blocked hall with carts and conversation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"My new spot"
Love this hotel. The only thing I didn't like was the mandatory valet parking. The hotel charges $50 per day in taxes and service charges that include valet, wifi, towel service and beach lounge chairs. That should be included in price quoted per night. Great hotel and I will be back soon.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nicely renovated, terrific staff"
Room was recently renovated and very comfortable. Foam bed was good sleeping. Valet parking staff was super. Highly recommended.Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent hotel in a beautiful location. Right on the beach Rooms were extremely clean and the restaurant has beautiful views of the ocean. Would stay there againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"ok hotel - in a state of transformation"
The hotel is in a state of change. The best thing I can say is the bed was new and comfortable. Aside from that, over-priced and underwhelming in all other areas.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Aging hotel in a nice location"
Location is very nice right on the ocean however the rest leaves a lot to be desired. The hotel interirors look old in general with incomplete/aging finishes throughout. The first room we were put in was on ground floor almost in the parking lot, cars parked 3ft outside our window.They said nothing else was available and asked to check the next day. […] On the second day they offered a room with pool view, but when we went to check the room we saw that the bathroom was very old and in bad condition. So finally settled for a room on the parking lot side, on the 3rd floor, at least not directly in the parking lot. They were painting the corridors while we were there and the smell was also coming in the room. The fan in the bathroom was disturbingly loud and was not possible to turn off They do not allow self parking for some reason, and the valet service is slow at times due to high traffic, waited for the car for long intervals. Hotel staff not very firendly in general. The food in the reastaurant is ok, however service not so pleasent. Overall not happy with our stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Good visit. Surprised to learn was no longer Holiday Inn. Restaurant was excellent. Did not like the valet parking. Prefer to come and go as we please without valet. A bit pricey as room and bath was dated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Can't believe this hotel was the same price as the dump of a hotel I started out at while in town. Polar opposites!! Delray Sands was amazing and beautiful! Sooooo clean and fresh! Pretty good service (the night time check-in guy was so-so), but everyone else was great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Motel in the beach, no resort"
They make you pay extra rate when you arrive for a resort fee, its not a resort, no spa, no resort amenities, its a motel room, with nice new furniture, but the bathroom is dated and dirty, the stairs to the second floor dirty too. The beach is nice, but they charged you extra for the cabanas, and the umbrellas. The breakfast is not included and its […] very expensive, no buffet. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
