We stayed here on an exchange through RCI in July. We were very disappointed in it. There is no parking, so be prepared to walk or take outrageous taxi's to everything. The front desk staff is very nice and friendly. Of course we were told incorrect information from them several times when asking about taxi prices and excursions. There are... More

I rented a room for a week through RCI in June 2014. Sorry this review is so late! The check in was easy, and the staff was super friendly. The lobby was open air and very full of mosquitos! I felt like we would rush to get into our room to get away from them. It's island life, so what... More

We booked this as a timeshare exchange through RCI. We had a one bedroom. The location is wonderful - right on Great Bay Beach. You have a great view of the cruise ships and the beach area with chairs and umbrellas is clean and beautiful. Not only is it right on the board walk, the other side is Front Street.... More

Our family of 4 stayed at the sea palace as an RCI exchange. We were upgraded to Unit 702. What a unit. A 2 bedroom with 3 full baths with showers , laundry and updated appliances/ kitchen. About half of the 34 units are remodeled. All should be done in a year ( Caribbean paced construction). We would stay here... More

PROS: Located on Front Street. Some staff were friendly. Front desk offered to help with bookings tours, calling cab service, etc. CONS: Too many dogs on the beach that pester you while relaxing on a chair or walking along the shore. Sea Palace says there isn't anything they can do about the dogs. Constantly chasing umbrellas blown away because they... More

Great time in town. Love it when you walk back to condo with a bottle of alcohol, and others see you and ask what ship you are on and we say we live there. Friendly people. Heard it was recently taken over by new company.

Lovely resort on the beach. Renovations taking place as we speak, but overall very nice. Staff very nice and helpful with side trips and drivers (Happy Harold) ! We came in off season, with few cruise ships so shops may not be open unless ships arrive. Island is truly paradise, and lots to do and see. Having the Dutch side... More

I used this timeshare through a client. Keeping up on the reviews here via tripadvisor. My husband and I were skeptical but we thought we would give it the benefit of the doubt. We reached out to the Sea Palace on several occasions via email and telephone calls to request a beach front updated room. Since I am a huge... More

Sea Palace is in a perfect spot at the end of the Boardwalk. We stayed in a 1 BR apt with beach views. The unit was newly renovated with all new appliances. Although there is no pool, we did not find this necessary, as the beach was so clean and there were always chairs and umbrellas available. The staff, especially... More

Sea Palace The location of this facility is just down from the pier the cruise ships dock, so there is lots of shopping, water activities, places to eat and drink. Most bars and eateries are moderately priced. We stayed in a one bedroom that sleeps six. It's good size. It has a full kitchen with dishes, dinnerware, glasses, cups, pots,... More
