Fodor's Expert Review Crane's Beach House Boutique Hotel & Luxury Villas

82 Gleason St., Delray Beach, Florida, 33483, USA Fodor's Choice

A tropical oasis, this boutique hotel is a hidden jungle of lush exotic and tropical plants, only a block from the beach. Each room is individually decorated in tropical prints, with rattan and wicker or sleek modern furnishings. The luxe villas have smart TVs, private patios or balconies, and dedicated Wi-Fi access. Both suites and rooms have full kitchens (kitchenettes are in the studios). Two pools, including a waterfall pool, along with thatched Tiki Bar, plus hammocks under the palms, promise the perfect South Florida experience. Live music at the Tiki Bar draws locals as well as hotel guests. Homemade sangrias and a list of frozen concoctions are the drinks du jour. Though no restaurants are on-site, there are many—along with cute shops—within the block on Atlantic Avenue.
