I've been going to Dover House for years, and stay for a week to ten days. I love it. It's right across the street from gorgeous Delray Beach, and around the corner from the lively, upbeat Atlantic Avenue scene, about a mile or so walk to the Delray Beach Tennis Club where the Tournament is held in February, and you can see the best tennis players on the circuit. The units are not fancy, they are basic, but contain everything you need, one bedroom with a comfortable king size bed, an efficiency kitchen and a living area. There is a nice pool and the grounds are kept very nicely, really pretty and clean. I actually like that the units are so basic and informal, it fits with the beach scene, and you don't feel like you are in an elite resort. The staff are amazing at trying to help you at all times, whether its locked out of your room at midnight or fixing any problem in your unit. I complained about a glass topped table, because the glass edge had scratched my leg, and the top was immediately removed from my room. The place has a relaxed feel, and the neighbors are friendly. It was very quiet at night. I love that if you are reasonably fit, you can walk over to Captain Clay's Fish Market, they'll pack your very fresh fish on ice, you walk back, fire up one of the two gas grills at Dover House, and have fresh grilled fish on the picnic table with a glass of wine….and you can see the ocean from the upper unit balconies.

I have recently had the pleasure to stay at Dover House for a week through a timeshare exchange. The funny thing is I live only 5 miles from the place, but needed a little staycation by the beach while I had family from out of town. I couldn't have made a better choice. I have only good things to say about this place. It's close to everything on Atlantic Avenue, and provides the comfort and parking of home.

Room Tip: I like the building across the street from the main building with the office. It provides a nice so...

This is our second pleasant stay at Dover House. Although small one bedroom apartment, it is very adequate for a short stay. The unit was very clean, bed comfortable, great towels. One drawback, if you intend to cook, kitchen is not very well equipped, but there are numerous restaurants on Atlantic Avenue, just around the corner from Dover House.

If you are looking for luxurious accommodations this is not it, but you can't beat the location just across the street to the beach. The grounds and pool are well-maintained and pleasant.

We arrived early for our check-in and the staff was very accommodating and we were in our assigned unit in no time at all.

We love Delray Beach and it's proximity to shopping, cultural activities, beach etc.

Room Tip: Request a second floor unit as you get views of the ocean in most units. Block 200 is quieter than 1...

We had a week here and, although the weather was warm, it was very windy so we did not sit on the beach. However, there were plenty of places nearby to visit and Delray beach was a great little town with lots of restaurants and coffee shops. The unit was fine. Not luxe but well equipped and clean and very central. The staff were good and everything was well maintained. It was quiet and we slept really well in the comfortable bed. I'd go again. We had no problem getting in and out of the unit!!

Room Tip: Try for a room on the second floor. Good views and quiet.

Dover House may be a great place for people looking to go to the beach; however, for those just wanting a place to stay in comfort, this is not the place. The front desk people were very nice but the rest was way below standard for me. It is a hotel made into a small apartment. Getting into the room/condo was a job by itself. The doors were so hard to get in. The condo was very old, but their attempt to update was so so. They tried. For me, I would stay at a hotel than here. This is one of my rare dislikes.

This was a trade through RCI. We traded our week in the mountains for a week at the beach. We had a view of the ocean from every room. The unit was small but well appointed. There was a great pool and very friendly staff. The location was great. It was just a short walk to downtown with all the Delray has to offer. We could ride our bikes right along the ocean and had plenty of long walks on the beach. The shelling was also outstanding.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for the second floor. It affords a much better view of the ocean.
