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

Sea Palace is in a great location on the boardwalk with wonderful beach chairs on the beach. The activity level is vibrant with multiple cruise ships visiting every day. The unfortunate situation is that the hotel lacks any amenities. One Chinese restaurant with very little local food and not even open for breakfast. The hotel was being renovated and was... More

We had a free stay certificate and chose this facility because we wanted to go to the islands and this was the only place available that said it could accommodate 6 (my husband, myself, and our 3 adult children made 5). Luckily our middle son made other plans with friends because the two pull-out sofas in the living room were... More

The Sea Palace owners and staff are working hard to make renovations. My friend had traded some time share points to stay there. We were lucky enough to get one of the newly renovated rooms, with newly tiled bathrooms, kitchen with granite and stainless steel appliances, on the 5th floor with a beautiful Caribbean Sea view. From our newly refurbished... More

We exchanged our timeshare for a 1 bdrm/2 bath for one week here at the end of Jan. 2015. As other reviewers have mentioned, they are still undergoing renovations. Our room had not been redone and was on a corner on Front St side. Every nite I heard roosters crowing, dogs barking, cars driving by with open windows & blaring... More

Eddy was the most helpful staff in the hotel. He went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and has given us valuable advice and recommendations. We travel a lot (5-6 holidays a year) but we both thought that Eddy was exceptional by providing a great service and helping wherever he could. He clearly did it out of his... More
