I work in the Boynton Beach area and sell all the over-55 communities.
Since you are asking about the price range of high100 to low 200, I should start by telling you that the price range will not get you into some of the more active communities like the Valencias where you'll need to at least be in the mid-high 200s.
You could get into these great communities:
Vizcaya in Delray - great newer community West of Jog on Atlantic - there may be 1-2 houses in there in your range.
Tuscany Bay - newer community South of Woolbright on Military - they have great villas
Venetian Isles - North of Gateway on Lyons (have to take BBB to get there) - also great villas and maybe 1-2 houses
All three have armed,manned security gates and have very active clubhouses.
I will be showing Venetian Isles again tomorrow...

Wow, you have such a broad range to choose from, it is tough to give you a concrete answer. Different communities offer various amenities, your desired "feel" of belonging would be key in determining what you as the beholder think is the nicest and safest. Everything from bustling Leisureville in eastern Boynton to upscale and gated Valencia Shores further west offer extreme variations of great active 55+ communities. Your price range of $100-200K also leaves the door wide open for available homes to look into. The sky is the limit!!
You have several homes, some communities include Aberdeen, Baywinds, Buena Vida, Tuscany Bay in Boynton Beach is another with a few homes- newer community. Baywinds is nice, they've just redone their clubhouse and I have clients who have moved there and are very happy.

Without knowing your price range, whether a condo or single family home I must hesitate at this time to fully answer your questions as to which one(s) is the nicest.
If you wish, please let me know your parameters as I will be better prepared to advise you.

Bellaggio, Villaggio, and Buena Vida.
They have great floor plans, the communities are beautiful, there's resort style clubhouses and lots of amenities.
I have friends at Buena Vida and their home is a 2/2+den but the ceilings are over 12 feet, the kitchen is HUGE with granite, island, all stainless steel appliances. They have all sorts of activities from dance classes, to dinner outings at new restaurants. There is a coffee shop by the pool. I would love to live there, if I was allowed to...
The clubhouse at Bellaggio beats Buena Vida's in appearance. The homes are similar, but I still prefer the Buena Vida floor plans and kitchens- plus in Wellington everything you need is 5 minutes away, from the mall with Nordstroms to a brand new Whole Foods Market.
