We stayed at this resort 5 years ago and loved it, but I nearly cancelled this stay after reading some recent negative reviews. I needn't have worried. The resort is still very good. The room. (Lanai Gardens Premium) was very clean and a nice size. The shower always had hot water. There are plenty of staff around to help out. Some of the grounds are looking a bit tired, but there appears to be a process of improvement going on.
There are a few onsite restaurants. The food is OK, but I though it's a bit overpriced.
Be aware that you have to pay $30 per day resort fees to cover use of pools, tennis courts, Wi-Fi etc, but the killer is $37 per day for parking. I thought this was excessive as there is plenty of parking space on site. For this reason alone I would not go back out of principle.

I liked my stay at The Del in late summer. Lovely old iconic main building, in a gorgeous setting, with some wonderful staff.
The gastro experiences were A rated - the Sunday brunch is a must ($96 per adult is fair if you're prepared to let any dietary restrictions slack). The wait staff are truly exceptional and they made the week memorable for me and my 6 y/o daughter.
The pool is small but it works - most people seemed to just want to lay in the sun so it was mostly kids in there with the odd parent bobbing around. It never felt crowded to me. When it was busy there were lots of interesting people to watch.
The shops in the hotel are good - they take up a lot of space in the basement and feel like another layer to the hotel experience. The shops and dining options in the town are good. Leroys and Tent City were great for brunch. There's a laundromat around the corner from TC.
The air force flybys (sometimes every 3 minutes, 300ft directly over the beach) was a big let-down. The noise is obnoxious at the beach and in the open aired restaurants, it's off putting.
The resort has been added to over the years. We stayed in a more generic "resort room". The car-park view was a big disappointment - the receptionist there tried quite hard to upsell me to a partial ocean view. The room itself was ho-hum - old carpet, ugly ceiling patches, old fridge, regular cable, mediocre room-service food, off-set a smidge by great service.

"good business hotel close to CBD and conferences"
Seems like a solid operation catering to the business/corporate crowd. Rooms are clean and quiet. The common spaces have seen better days, and there is no "atmosphere" or charm per se, but if you're looking for a good place to crash at night then it's totally fine. Beware of additional fees, which are typical for hotels in the area, and no particular fault of this specific hotel.
