We loved this place! Friendly staff and longer term guests. Great food at hotel and at many restaurants within walking distance. Location is very convenient to larger city of Puerto Vallarta by cab or boat. Many activities on and off site available. It would be hard to be bored here.

The room was good exactly as expected, clean! The maids were super friendly, Sylvia made little animals for us, made the curtains into a butterfly and left us kisses on our bed, a wonderful surprise at the end of our day. Alahandra was also very good ;-). The Wifi was good, taxi station was right down the way as well...

Very laid back stay. Beautiful ocean view with very narrow balcony. Enjoyed the buffet breakfast and lunch menu at the bar and happy hour. :). 1 bedroom was spacious and clean, a tad dated. The air conditioning was not working properly and maintenance promptly repaired within 5 minutes of placing a call. I thought the bed a little firm to...

A smaller more relaxed experience. Great beach and nice pool. We enjoyed the outstanding, exceptional service from our waiter, Julio Cesar at the pool and beach. He was outstanding along with his team. We will most definitely be back!!

Smaller resort, awesome service, very friendly, good food, beautifully maintained, close to shopping, restaurants, weather 90 F, beautiful sunsets, loved that you could open up balcony doors to hear the waves even though there are no actual balconies.

We've travel to Mexico a lot and we expect the timeshare sharks. Usually when you check into a hotel you are sent to the activities desk immediately where they will try to get you to come to a presentation. The guy told us it would be an hour long and at the resort. He said it wasn't a timeshare presentation,...

The Sea Garden is a great place to stay if you want to be right on the beach. It's a smaller resort which makes it convenient to get to the beach --you can leave your room & in 3 minutes or less be on on a lounge chair on a great sandy beach watching the waves roll in. The beach...

Spent a week at Sea Garden. Weather was perfect, resort was clean and quiet. The beaches are well maintained and not crowded. The resort staff were very helpful and courteous. The restaurant was fairly priced and delicious.

This site is close to lots of good restaurants, villages, boating to other developments, and more. The location is beautifully maintained - personnel were cleaning all of the time! Rooms are adequate and VERY clean but just not elegant. The pool is large and lovely and beachfront chairs were plentiful. This is a great location for a laid-back vacation. The...

Reviews of the Sea Garden seem to be all over the map!! You wouldn't even suppose they were speaking about the same property! One week a guest gives a 5-star rating, with positive comments. Within a week or 2 before or after, you'll find another guest rating it with 1-star and the distinct impression from their comments, they would have given it a -0 rating had that been an option. I also could not help noticing the "socialmediamanager"(?) seldom responded to the most negative reviews/comments and even when replying to the more favorable reviews, seldom addressed the specific concerns or issues the guests raised! Overall, I found his/her responses about as helpful as a load of bricks on a sore toe!! Would really like to know if previous/recent past guests' concerns/complaints/problems/issues have been/will ever be remedied. If so, in what way? For example, is true the only means by which one is given a decent room is by agreeing to go on a T/S presentation? Is the front-desk staff friendly and helpful or not? Are rude staff members taken to task for their behavior towards their guests? Is wifi now available at no cost or @ less than $25.00 US per day? Are the rooms clean and modernized or dirty and dated? I realize the reviews are all subjective in nature, but there are some minimum standards common across the industry, aren't there? Assuming anyone does actually offer a an explanation of sorts or not, I personally am locked into a visit here early next Spring willy-nilly, but I would however, like to forewarn my potential traveling companions what to expect! Thanks :)
