With 356 acres and 1,041 rooms spread over five buildings, this property calls itself a “resort village,” and rightfully so. It’s so large that shuttle buses and a boat run between its two main halves, one of which has its own marina, the other of which is on the beach. The spa alone has 44 private treatment rooms. There are water sports on the beach, seven pools, thirteen restaurants, and nine onsite shops. If the everyday pleasures of swimming, shopping, and eating fail to amuse, there are also two golf courses, a tennis center, and a surf school, not to mention a sculpture collection so large guided tours are offered.
In the Area
The sun, the beach, and the palm trees are right there on the property, but the other pleasures of South Florida may require a car. There are catamaran cruises into the Atlantic Ocean or along the mansion-lined Intracoastal, canoe tours of the Everglades, and excursions into Miami to take in the Heat basketball games, Florida Marlins baseball games, or Dolphins football games. Less sporty types make the trip for concerts at the New World Symphony Center or traveling Broadway shows at the Adrienne Arsht Center instead.
How to Get There
This is not our first stay at the Boca Raton Resort & Club but I decided to write a review because we were extremely impressed with the staff and with the resort grounds. Throughout the years the resort had different owners and management but this stay was definitely our best! The landscape designer and the crew are doing a fantastic job, it is unbelievable how you can walk the grounds of the hotel and be amazed at every step with the plants and the overall landscape. Although it looks the same the hotel gives you the vibe that it had a makeover. Someone is focussed on the details for sure! Our room was beautiful and luxurious. The food was also delicious! The staff is extremely professional and pleasant. Chef Adam in Lucca restaurant deserves a medal not only for his talent and delicious food but for his genuine personality. We were extremely pleased with our stay and we will definitely go back!
We stayed in the Tower of the Waldorf Astoria Resort, but visited the beach club, where Marcus W. waited on our family at the beach. We experienced the best service of our stay with Marcus at the Beach Club. He was friendly, engaging, and anticipated needs... everything you could ask for regarding great service. We will definitely request Marcus on our return visits.
The hotel is very nice. It is very clean and well maintained. The pool staff/wait staff was not your typical high-end resort staff! They were not attentive at all and other guests at the pool were talking about how bad this staff was in the pool area. Also, the room service was terrible! We did not have a menu in the room and we called and about 45 minutes later received a menu and then it took another 45-50 minutes to get an order! We got a baked potato, turkey sandwich and two sprites and the cost before tip was $56. All of the food and drinks were ridiculously priced! A coke was $6, and the portions you get at the places we ate at was very small for what we paid! Appetizers were starting at like $17 and up!! The Ritz Carlton is cheaper than this place! Valet parking $42/day plus tax! It’s a nice place but not nice enough with these prices!!!
The Boca was top notch from start to finish. The staff is friendly, accomodating and professional. The buildings and grounds are beautiful with historic features so be sure to walk around and check it out. The room/suite was the best, it was huge, clean, comfortable and updated. When in Boca, this is the place to stay.
We just had a group of 500 guests with breakfast and dinner and if you've done this before your banquet guys got a lot to do with making it happen along with bell staff on arrivals and departures, everything was inorder and on time. Can't go wrong these guys know how to handle groups. Oh ya and big comfi beds!
