We had the largest suite at the top. Fully renovated and cold A/C. Very nice accommodations. The beach was nice, but the resort really needs a pool. Renovation crew were respectful in that they did not work before 10 am. Staff was very friendly and helpful. August is a tough month to be here. All restaurants are al fresco and... More

Stayed at Sea Palace last year and going again this year! Renovated rooms great with tile bathrooms and granite kitchens. Can walk to several restaurants and shopping. Balcony with ocean view and watched cruise ships coming in. Very short walk to beach with chairs and umbrellas provided.

This was my second visit to The Sea Place. I was pleased in the past with the accommodations despite the major renovation that is still in progress. I understand with the new management company there is a very new front desk staff, The unit I was shown was unacceptable to myself (an RN) and my senior family member who has... More

The views from the balcony are breath taking and the staff is very nice. BUT they lie about the amount of people the place fits. It says sleeps 8 penthouse but in reality is sleeps 6 (there is 6 of everything). They neglect to tell you that you will be charged for electricity (it came out to $200 for the... More

I'm writing this review on my last day here and I'm pretty okay with how our trip has been. We are in unit 601 (sleeps 8) and it is partially renovated. Balcony is gorgeous. Kitchen is very modern with a flat top stove on the island. Oven has weird knobs and we were unsure when it had reached temperature since... More

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
