Individual guest reviews

  • Outdoor pool area was nice/ and there beach bar restaurant was very good, awesome drinks. Our stay was wonderful and lobby smelled of Orchids and was clean and simple. The staff were great and the room was nice.

    Hotel is too quiet and the breakfast is repetitive and there is not much choice.

  • Bar area were beautiful and the South Seas was fantastic. The place was great, the lobby was nice and smelled fresh, the staff were friendly after I started a conversation. Beds were really comfy, breakfast included a generous buffet served on the patio and the pool was clean and big enough.

    The hotel is really sad, i complained at the front desk before we left feeling we should have been given some credit/ and the rooms need a little updating.

  • The location was very good, the fact that the beach was yards away was also great and the South Seas Hotel was very quiet and clean. Lobby was very nice, friendly staff and front desk was personable and helpful. Rooms were comfortable and modern, the breakfast that was available was very minimal, the pool was warm very well taken care of.

    The whole place smelled stale and bathrooms were very small. Pillow cases and comforters were stained.

  • The location is great, south Seas is not posh nor is luxurious and entire hotel are clean and the staff is a pleasure. The basic rooms are just that; quite basic, the breakfast was VERY good also, and the hammocks are wonderful.

    Unfortunate since the pool area was very nice.

  • Great location and value, good BEach facilities, the Hotel is clean and has friendly staff. The beds are comfortable and cozy, food and drinks are available at the Pilikia Bar near the pool.

    Room was quite small, breakfast was rather unexciting.

  • The position is very good and the beach is right out the back gate. This hotel offers a great location and a nice compromise between pricelocation and quality, the staff at the front desk is helpful, the orchids in the room are beautiful. Continental breakfast is ok.

    Pool area is nice, lounge chair cushions are a little dated.
