    I've been an owner at Lakes of Delray for almost 3 years and love it! It is clean, well maintained and offers a variety of activities & groups. I play on the billiard team & my wife & I are part of the photography club. Our neighbors are the best & we enjoy dinners together & pool days & barbecuing. There's movies on Friday nights and the beach 10 minutes away. Our board President takes meticulous care of our building, like it's his own. I am thoroughly satisfied with Lakes of Delray and highly recommend it!

    My spouse and I are snow birds and we LOVE Lakes of Delray. The problems that Nancy described are not universal. We have a Board President at Pembridge D that keeps our section of condos meticulous and bug free. (Each section has their own HOA Board). The grounds are well kept, the halls are cleaned each week and we are proud to call LOD/Pembridge D our home. We have a lovely lake behind our home which is so tranquil and picturesque. There are walking paths and satellite pools, clubhouse and big main pool and hot tub. We feel so fortunate to have found LOD and enjoy it 5 months a year. Our Board President arranges welcome breakfasts and luncheons to foster a community camaraderie and I love my neighbors. We go out to dinner and to the pool and beach. LOD is a wonderful community. We have renovated our condo so it is like having a brand new condo in an established community. The HOA fees and taxes are very reasonable for all the amenities. I can't say enough great things about Lakes of Delray!
