The apartment was very adequate and the atmosphere excellent. On the ocean with an easy pace, the operation is very friendly and the up keep sensitive to all residents needs. Simple, clear and useful.

I don't really want to review Wright By the Sea, because it feels like our own little secret (shared by many). It's a bit like stepping back in time, and we love it. The people working there are wonderful and we've been going enough years now that we feel like regulars. It's a simple life there, not flashy, not modern,...

Great spot friendly staff rooms are a bit dated but are clean and neat. I stayed there 50 years ago as a kid with my parents and it was fun to stay in a nice quiet resort. Kitchenette was a nice addition as we could eat our breakfast on the porch.

The only element keeping us from providing a "5" rating was the parking. Everything else, in particular the hospitality of the office personnel was excellent. The location is excellent and the cabana area was well maintained.

We are pleased you chose us for your stay in Delray Beach and you enjoyed our hotel. Very sorry if you did not know we have additional parking across from the hotel. We hold events during the off season. It holds an extra 100 cars. We do hope to see you again and we will definitely point out the lot.

It is our new home away from home. This was our second year and we will be back. The staff is wonderful, just like family. The other guests were also wonderful. They are stuck with us for many years to come.

I've been going to WBTS for many years and have never been disappointed. The staff is outstanding and are always eager to make your stay as wonderful as possible. The greatest difficulty you'll encounter, especially in the new year, is finding availability. Most guests return year after year.

This place is not for everyone - an old fashioned snow bird hangout- but for us the second we walk up the stress just drains away - the rooms are all different and I love everyone we have ever been in. Perfect beachfront vacation😎
