Berkshire by the Sea
Reviewed 4 July 2008

This was an RCI exchange. The unit was very nice, furniture and other amenities adequate. We were in the main building, overlooking the pool but the noise wasn't a problem. However, we did suffer from noise from the unit above us, the kids were jumping on some sort of toy for hours, but the management took care of the problem. The grounds were maintained very well, we enjoyed both pools ( one, salt the other chlorine) ; it was too hot to use the hot tub. The best thing about the resort is that it's across the street from the beach, which is well-maintained with lifeguards. We will definitely return.
The one mistake was to go mid-June, which turns out to be the rainy season and put a bit of a damper on our ability to fully enjoy the water. Won't make THAT mistake again.

Hi, this was a very clean resort! It had been repainted all over and our unit had brand new furniture. You cannot beat the location. It is an easy walk across the street to the public beach. The water is very clear and clean. There are many places to eat within walking distance . Staff was very nice too!

We are owners Week 41 - Building A! Over the years we have met and become very friendly with other families -- this is by far one gorgeous place! Clean, Staff is friendly and beyond extremely helpful. So many restaurants, shopping in walking distance. It's one awesome week of true vacationing: hop, skip and jump across street to beach, lounging in the two pools, relax in the hot tub at night. And the view - spectactular. Sunrises would bring tears to the eyes they are that gorgeous!
I always hate to see our week end when we have to say goodbye!

This is a GREAT timeshare! Although it's older you could never tell by the rooms. They are well kept and the furnishings are very upscale compared to many other RCI resorts.

Just my husband and I, but the master bedroom is HUGE, and the two pools, one salt water and one standard pool were great.

It's also directly across the street from a beautiful beach with gorgeous views of the ocean and sunsets! Would definitely stay here again.

Positives
Location to fabulous beach - cant get any closer!
Cleanliness - perfect
Amenities - wonderful. from the fully loaded kitchen and spacious apartment and balcony, to the two nice pools, jacuzzi and lounging areas, to tennis, shuffle board, putting green and on.
loved the little lizards all around the pool, harmless and entertaining

Negatives
Bed was fairly hard
Elevator slow, and broke once (fixed quick)
Thin walls
No restaurant on site
No security at all, anyone can access hotel or pool or whatever
Bottom line - I plan to go back. I use a time share transfer to book this hotel. They did stick me in the worst 2nd floor room though (126) , right next to elevator, right above machine room (loud) and right over entrance to pool.

My husband, my son and I stayed at Berkshire by the Sea over March Break (from the 10th 'til the 17th). This place is delightful! Right across the street from one of the best beaches in Florida with two pools, a jacuzzi, tennis court, shuffleboard, putting green, and entertainment room. Our one-bedroom unit on the fifth floor had a breathtaking view of the ocean. We fell asleep and woke up to the sound of the waves. Our unit was spotlessly clean and looked brand new. BBTS is located within one long block of the shops and restaurants of Atlantic Avenue. The three of us can't wait to go back next year. We'd recommend this place to anyone.

We just returned from a beautiful week at BBTS in Delray Beach. This is a very nice facility, with 2 pools (fresh and saltwater) tennis, jacuzzi, rec room. We stayed in a 2 bedroom condo, with a full kitchen, 2 baths, a huge balcony with an ocean view. Everyone there was very helpful and gave excellent tips on things to do and see. The town of Delray Beach is within easy walking distance with unique shops, great restaurants, and all sorts of entertainment. I would recommend this resort to just about anyone who wants to enjoy a few days in the sun, without fighting the usual traffic problems on the S E Fla coast.
