Special THANKS to Joe, Lissette, Eddie, Hector, Noel, Michelin, Ondina and staff at the Sea Palace. The staff is very responsive to requests and concerns; they are also very friendly, hard-working and professional. Service with a smile indeed on the Friendly Island. We stayed in room 504 for 1 week, then room 302 for another week, both 1br/2ba. 504 has... More

My timeshare arranged a week long stay at the Sea Palace, 30 Aug-6 Sep 2014. The hotel is doing heavy construction and if you don't mind the hammering, jacksaw drilling, and constant construction noise, everyday, as early as 9 am and as late as 4:30 pm, or the outdated, but spacious rooms, then you will be fine. We had a... More

This hotel is centrally located in the shopping area downtown on Front St. This is great for shopping (jewellery, electronics, souvenirs) as well as this is the location all cruise ships dock. However, after everything closes (i.e.around 5pm) the place is absolutely dead quiet. The better location to stay that I recommend which is closer to the airport, and has... More

We stayed hete for two weeks and overall had a great experience! The first week we stayed in a stuido facing the street, but it also had side views of the ocean. The room was basic, but very clean and met our needs. The oven was a big downfall- all of the grates were tilted, it was difficult to cook... More

Suites with terraces overlooking the Great Bay can't be beat. Our unit consisted of one bedroom, two baths, a living room, dining area and kitchen with two terraces, one facing south and one west. They are in the process of gutting every suite down to bare walls. A brand new kitchen, baths, windows, doors, tile flors, appliances, washer/dryer were here... More

My wife and I exchanged into this property. We had a huge 1bedroom unit. 2 baths. Full kitchen. It featured a magnificent balcony that overlooked the beach and bay. Staff was very helpful and went out of their way to be of assistance. The tile in the baths was dated and needed to be replaced. But for the cost, a... More

Our party of 7 stayed in the "Penthouse" - 6th floor - the view was amazing, the location perfect -- we had our quiet end of the beach as we watched the cruise ships come in almost every day. We could walk to the shops, the restaurants, the church. The water was perfect. My elderly parents were on the trip... More

We stayed at the Sea Palace from 5/17-5/24 2014. Designated parking would have been a great benefit since renting a car is the BEST way to get around the island. Just rent the car when you get to the airport. Go with who you know or like Avis,Budget or Hertz, we used Budget and it was a 90's toyota. the... More

I stayed here for a week and really enjoyed the location. It was near the end of Front Street, so it was quiet. Right on the beach, and the views out the balcony at night were stunning. Great Staff, very polite and accommodating. Room was nice and clean and I would definitely stay here again.
