We could stay at a more upscale Mayan hotel but we always return to the Sea Garden because we love the smaller size, friendly staff, proximity to the pool & beach and the lovely ocean views. There are many decent reasonable restaurants just a short walk from the hotel, an Oxxo (like 7-11) store just down the street for snacks... More

If the Grand Mayan is the rich older relative, the Sea Garden is the money grubbing little cousin. We didn't get the run of the entire Mayan complex but if we attended the "talk" we might be able to, we were told. The laundry facilities charged $10 a load. Too much pressure to attend the "talk". Internet was 250 pesos... More

Great location, nice pool area right on the beach, then you enter your very basic and dated room, however very clean, and then try to lay on the bed to sleep and find that its hard as rock and the pillows are like sacks of potatoes!!! Very nice staff.

We had a lovely time at the Sea Garden, and eating at all of the restaurants at the Mayan Resorts. The pool at the Sea Garden is not enormous, and the oddity of the Sea Garden is (since it is sort of the least-luxury of the Mayan suite of hotels) is that you are only allowed to use the pool...

There is no fitness center in the installations, and the customer is not able to use the other Mayan Facilities either if you stay at the sea garden Nuevo Vallarta. You also need to pay around $80.00 for Internet access for one week.

The Sea Gardens is our fave place to stay! Location is excellent! Rooms and service are excellent! It's not the most luxurious compared to the other Mayan Resorts, but it has atmosphere and you don't need to walk very far to get to the pool or beach!

the oceanfront 1 br suite was great and we had no problems whatsoever. Service involving the lobby, front desk, pools and rooms were perfect and could expect nothing more. Overall, we had a great holiday at The Sea Gardens and have definite intentions on returning.
