We love Sea Palace. A newly remodeled resort, steps away from a beautiful white sandy beach and crystal clear blue Caribbean water. Beach chairs, umbrellas and beach towels included with your stay. Walking distance to many restaurants and lots of shopping. Great staff always willing to help with bookings, car rentals and local information.

We've been owners for years, starting with one week. Now we own four weeks, and we go every year. The location is magnificent, the renovations are wonderful, and we see our same friends year after year. High praise to the new board and new management who have done a great job.

The Sea Palace is in a great location on a beautiful beach in walking distance to all the shops and great restaurants nearby. Not only was the hotel completely renovated (beautiful, Spacious!) but the beach and boardwalk have been drastically improved as well. What used to be a Podunk town has evolved into a class A destination. Two large balconies...

All new remodels to all rooms. Step out the door and you are on the beach or the best shopping on the island. Staff is friendly, beach chairs and towels go along with the rental. Beach is where cruise ships dock so we do a lot of people watching

The best location, the best staff in the hotel. Everybody is nice and perform their job excellent. We were happy in this place. Room is big and balcony is the best with sea view. Everything equipped well. We had two big flat screen TV, but it was only one channel working.

Lisa, we are very sorry that your stay with us was not an enjoyable one. Our resort has undergone a complete renovation and it has taken 3 years, because we ripped the building down to the bare bones and rebuilt it fresh. Also in fairness to our timeshare owners and guests, who enjoy returning here each year, we had to...

I stayed in unit 504 and it was all renovated. No complaints at all! It was like having a 1 bedroom apartment. Livingroom, kitchen, bedroom, 2 bathroom and balconey with a view to die for! "Full kitchen" when I say full I meant it! From cutting board to dishwasher. We basically had everything we would ever want. I would admit...
