getaways for couplesWhen planning our trip to Florida we wanted to see a different part of this beautiful sunny State. We decided to explore the Delray Beach area in Florida. When exploring Delray Beach hotels the Seagate Hotel and Spa was the obvious choice. The Seagate Hotel Delray has so much to offer from a private pool to exclusive membership privileges at the Seagate Beach Club and the Seagate Country Club.
Seagate Hotel Delray
Where is Delray Beach Florida
Many people ask where is Delray Beach Florida? Delray is a coastal city in Palm Beach County. Delray Beach is known as a vibrant, intimate town and is a gem of South Florida. The Seagate Hotel is located 30 minutes away from Palm Beach International Airport and 45 minutes from Fort Lauderdale International Airport making it an easy destination to get to. If you are looking to relax and enjoy this beach town, you can park your car for the rest of your stay at the Seagate Hotel will take care of the transportation. Delray Beach has been named one of Florida’s Top 10 Beaches (Travel Channel 2015 & 2016) and one of the Top 10 Happiest Seaside Towns in America. When we arrived in Delray we immediately felt the homie, welcoming, small-town feel of this resort town.
Seagate Hotel & Spa Delray Beach
The Seagate Hotel and Spa is located a short walk from the public beach or a 5-minute complimentary drive to the Seagate Beach Club. When we pulled up to the entrance of the Seagate Delray we were greeted by the friendly valet service. Our luggage and car were taken care of as we checked into this beach hotel. We were checked in quickly and immediately went up to our room to freshen up and explore the property.
Seagate Delray Rooms
We stayed in a luxurious 500-square foot Deluxe Queen Room at the Seagate Delray that featured two comfy queen-sized beds with Egyptian cotton bedding and fluffy duvets. I really loved this spacious suite especially since we were traveling with our daughter and didn’t want to feel cramped. The marble bathroom has a walk-in shower and a bubble-jet tub (bath salts are provided). They thought of everything with the finest bath amenities such as the shampoo, conditioner and body wash but also an individual loofah pad, bath salts to enjoy that tub as well as a black facecloth specifically for removing makeup.
We had a private balcony which was perfect for sitting and sipping on your morning coffee freshly brewed from the in-room Keurig machine. If you have time to watch television the room is equipped with a 42-inch HDTV and wireless internet.

The Atlantic Grille at Seagate Hotel
Grilled New York Strip
Swordfish topped with lump crab
We had an amazing dining experience at The Atlantic Grille, the restaurant in the Seagate hotel. This stunning restaurant captures the best of Delray Beach with a combination of inventive cuisine and an amazing social vibe. The center of attraction here is the 2500 gallon shark tank that is so fascinating.
On the night we had dinner this place was bustling and felt like the hot spot of Delray. The menu highlights the freshest signature seafood along with premium cuts of steak, pasta, and salads all prepared with finesse. The best way I can describe my swordfish topped with crabmeat is incredibly lavish…. … so fresh and cooked to perfection! Our other entrees were absolute hits as well with raves all around. After a very long break, we had to try a selection of desserts and though all were amazing, the unanimous favourite was the Key lime pie.
Along with the amazing food, cool vibe and a surprise visit from the head chef, this restaurant excels with very attentive and very friendly service that we found a common theme at the Seagate Hotel.
If you are looking for a boutique style hotel with extraordinary friendly service then check out the Seagate Hotel & Spa. With so many great places to explore in Florida, you may want to consider a day trip to St. Augustine.
A big thank you to the Seagate Hotel for an amazing stay.
