Group took over the room and had a cocktail party there. Liquor was average, food was average, desserts were average, but they gladly did make gluten free pasta on request. The people were very nice, but they should have just ordered from Cupcakes & More...More

This is an amazing place. I went for a breakfast on a Saturday. A beautiful selection in their brunch. Terrific view and décor with the beach not far from our dining table. The service was a bit weak compared to the upscale place that this...More

My partner and I visited The Del specifically for brunch on a Wednesday late morning, and were delighted by the experience. We selected an outside table shaded by the restaurant's overhang, allowing an unobstructed view of the beautiful lawn, and the ocean beyond. The menu...More

We were there with a fairly large group with a catered event. From the servers, the food, and ambience, nothing but good to say. It was not as noisy as many large rooms as well.

More food than you can possibly eat. A little pricey, but it is Hotel Del! Everything from breakfast to dessert. Mimosas and Bloody Mary's are complimentary.

Down as many Bloody Mary's as you can while taking in the sights of the most affluent island in the country. Waitstaff is slow and at times seemingly "special" but they wear sunglasses and eventually get it right. Pack your wallet, drinks ain't cheep. Restroom...More

Definitely make a reservation. Both times I've eaten the brunch, we've made a reservation around noon and have stayed until at least 2 p.m. Our waiter even mentioned that they plan for people to stay for two or more hours... More

I don't know if you can rent out the room - you'd have to call the hotel for that but it can easily hold a couple hundred people.

The brunch is $90.00 and they automatically add on an 18% gratuity. The cost is payable upon reservation, not when you actually go and eat the brunch.
