“A superb Timeshare”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

The resort was very well maintained and very clean. Our unit was a ground floor one looking out onto the ocean and about 100m from a beautiful beach.

The pool was great, the residents friendly and the surrounding area (Atlantic Avenue, Boca Raton and West Palm Beach) provided every entertainment, environmental experience or shopping you could possibly need.

A great week

PRO. Located across the two lane street from the uncrowded white sand beach with few (if any waves). Two pools - one fresh, one saltwater with BBQs. 4-story modern wing and 2-story old style wing. Comfortable good-sized units with full amenities, well-equipped kitchen, TVs in living/dining/wall bed area and in master bedroom. Well kept grounds, small courtyards, very quiet. Very helpful management and responsive to emails about info or late arrival. 10 min walk to cute main shopping/eating street (Atlantic). Laundry room, TV/game room. Very clean. Nice view of ocean from living room and front porch. Free WIFI

CON. Slightly long distance to nearest supermarket (Publix) - 30 min walk or 10 min bike. WIFI a bit slow and poor reception at times. Not all BBQs working.

TIP. Ground floor unit in older wing on street is very convenient for beach and pool. Rent bikes from Richwagen’s Delray Bike & Sport since area is flat for riding with bike lanes. Car is not necessary unless visiting Everglades. Best deal is Enterprise Rental in Delray Beach. Easy to arrive from MIA or FLL airports using TriRail, then taxi or Trolley (if before 11PM). Good eats: Rustic Pizza and BurgerFI - both on Atlantic near Ocean Blvd - and Green Owl Diner (for breakfast).

Room Tip: Ground floor unit in older wing facing street is very convenient for beach and pool, e.g. 201.

Greeted with enthusiasm upon our arrival. Check in was quick and easy. Was told we had an ocean view. It would have been, if the palm trees weren't in the way. 2nd floor wasn't high enough to see over trees but had nice view of the pool. Location was great. Across the street from the beach just walk over and wallah. Rented umbrella and lounge chairs as the hotel only provided towels. Told us chairs and umbrellas they had were first come first serve. Saw a group of ladies take several and hoard them for the week. Not hotels fault, just selfish people. Oceanside rentals guys were very nice. We'll worth rental cost. Our room was 127. Accommodations were okay but couch was very uncomfortable. Was able to walk everywhere from hotel. Could call for a local free transport if needed which was nice. BBTS could use a small gym. Only real downside. Running outside in the heat us unbearable. Want to still stay in shape when on vacation so all the good food doesn't pack on the pounds. Kids were a little too loud at the pool but when aren't they. Dee Dee was a very nice lady who goes there all the time and owns some of the units. Made us feel right at home.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views.

We enjoyed our vacation at the Berkshires by the Sea. Delray Beach is right across A1A from the resort. This area of the beach has no construction directly on it, so all of the hotels and resorts are just across the highway. It is a 2-lane road and not that busy, so it isn't too hard to cross. Our room was very nice. The resort has a little age, but all of the appliances, TVs, etc. were up to date. It is within walking distance of downtown for the shops and restaurants. There is a free trolley that will take you up and down Atlantic Avenue. There are no planned activities at this resort - e.g. Bingo by the pool. We got to know several of the other families over the week. It was nice to go to a resort as an exchange guest and not be asked to attend a sales presentation. Everyone was pretty laid back and friendly.

Room Tip: This is a fairly small resort. A few buildings are 2-story, and the largest building is 5-stories. T...

Outstanding service. Everyone we encountered at Berkshire by the Sea was extremely friendly and well informed, as well as very friendly. We LOVED this place. Great size and a great room. Excellent location. The room was very clean at all times. We TRULY enjoyed our stay there and are anxiously looking forward to returning.
The grounds are very well kept, the pools are both always clean. I have absolutely no co,plaints about this stay.

Room Tip: I don't know about any other rooms , but our room was on the first floor facing the ocean and wa...

Our family rented a week in early 80's and now our Granddaughters are coming.
It always feels like coming to our winter home when we drive in the driveway from P.E.I. Canada.
Beautiful Delray Beach with Atlantic Ave. that lights up like a Christmas tree at night and as my husband says "one great big kitchen" with every type of food imaginable.
Our manager Marianne and staff have made wonderful improvements and upgrades...a work in progress and are always so helpful and accommodating.
This place has so much to offer, even to having our own aqua fitness program for 5 weeks in march when one of our owners takes it upon herself to lead the group.
The people that come every year, the beach, pools, tennis court.....I could go on and on.
A great family place.

city has everything. great restaurants, lots to do. Nothing built on the beach. this resort is across A1A so great views of the Ocean. just cross the street and you are on the beach. No high rises so the beach is not crowded unless you go downtown which might be 1/4 mile. See the pictures. friendly atmosphere. Great staff. units in process of updating. 2 large pools and one hot tub. you have to see to appreciate.

Room Tip: no fitness center. nice rec room with computer available free. ping pong and pool table
