An August 2004 trip
to Delray Beach by Mcmarty
Quote: We just returned from a wonderful week in Delray Beach, between West Palm and Ft. Lauderdale. Delray is a breath of fresh air in an otherwise busy, bustling part of the state!
Hotel | "Dover House"
Although the resort is fairly small, management's attention to detail and satisfaction of the visitors is outstanding. The resort's location is the best, as it is very close to good restaurants and to the many downtown shops (most upscale, but there are also malls to which one can drive.) We enjoyed driving the ocean route to places we visited and did not meet heavy traffic on it.
The beach is across the street from the resort, but it is a simple two-lane to cross, with a nice path through some lush greenery to the beach itself. There are many chaise lounges there to stretch out on. There is a pool house for changing and restrooms next to the pool area behind Dover House, and we enjoyed several days by the pool as well.
All in all, you can't go wrong if you're looking for a very pleasant place to stay. If you're hunting for an action-packed resort, this should probably not be your choice, but if your desire is a well-run, lovely haven by the Atlantic, this is a good pick!
