Excellent facility, Very friendly, efficient staff. Sea Garden is close to many good restaurants within walking distance . Transportation is very convenient. There are two convenience stores, one right on the property and an Oxxo just a block away The pool and beach are excellent, Again, so close and accessible. We had an amazing view of the ocean and sunset...

Spent two weeks as a guest at this resort. It will had a 5 star if not for the restaurant service at the place. We visited three times; breakfast, lunch and dinner and all three times the service was very bad. We had to ask again and again for more water, coffee etc. felt like we were continually ignored.

Beautiful resort, very clean. Staff excellent. Restaurant food good. Small things could make a difference: a soap dish at the bathroom sink, small pillows on the sofa, which are very uncomfortable to sit on now Also, there should be easy access to the rest of the resorts in the complex! Ridiculous to have to walk on the beach to reach...

we enjoyed our time at the Sea Garden. the Joy squad did an outstanding job of keeping the activities going. with it being a small resort they were able to call the guest by name which always makes one feel special. We hope to go back next year

ts start with the good things about the Sea Gardens. Some things are really good- like the pool is HEATED- yay! The staff are very nice and most of the guests are middle-aged and older so there aren't drunk teenagers throwing up on you and obnoxious music blaring all the time. And you can sit on the beach without 4000...

Only complaints are minor. Uncomfortable couches for sitting. For beds they are ok. Family with two young teens. Brought a good fry pan home-used it all the time. Better stove- more burners. That's about it. Great place. Location fantastic. Staff at Joy Club and pool servers-fantastic. We've been here before so we know it's older-but that's ok. We love the...

Staff are very attentive, polite, professional and always willing to assist. We loved how convenient everything is. It's nice to be close to everything and not have to walk long distances to get back to the room, to the beach, to the front desk or a restaurant. It's perfect! Best housekeeping ever. These ladies spoiled us. Miss the food. Also...

This resort is well kept even though it is an older property. Service is very good with a terrific Joy Squad staff supplying many activities during the day. Kudos to AB and the gang. The location is the best, as well as a great beach and pool. Lots of restaurants nearby . Just steps away from public buses . Easy...

North Carolina

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 :)
