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

A fun time if you avoid the room during the daytime loud construction - but I laugh when I hear about those needing a TV to watch during the day...really? REMEMBER YOU'RE ON VACATION!!!! The amount of time you will save being that close to the beach (and far away from the cruise ship foot traffic) is well worth the... More

We purchased one of the first units in this timeshare in 1986 and have gone back nearly every year since. We have added timeshare weeks at two other places on the island, including on the French side, so stay in each place a week. Sea Palace, its welcoming/competent staff, low-key atmosphere, and other owners/long-time friends truly make us feel at... More

My husband and I just returned from a 2 week vacation at the Sea Palace. The first week we received a one bedroom that had not yet been upgraded. It was on the side of the hotel so we had a partial view of the ocean and the street. It was dated but very clean and met all of our... More
