Be careful when you book an ocean front room at the Del (in the original building area). They are doing construction - although Reservations WILL NOT TELL YOU THIS. My wife and I decided to upgrade to an ocean front with a balcony - and it was great - until we were awakened the next morning at 8 from the noise of heavy machinery. Also, the backhoes, earth movers, etc. make it impossible to sit out on your deck - unless you like breathing deisel fumes.
BTW, the lady at the front desk when we checked in didn't even bother mentioning anything about the construction either.
