I was dazzled the first time I saw this hotel because of its bold though attractive Mexican appearance. The room was perfectly shielded from outside-noise, the bed extraordinarily comfortable, and the distance to the sea joyfully short. Besides, the owner was very sociable, helpful and cheerful. The house-cleaning service was thorough and quickly done. I have stayed on 5-star hotels... More

Blue Seas Courtyard was everything I was hoping it to be and more! The rooms were clean, the pool area was beautiful and the location was the best part. Everything was in walking distance. Located across the street from the beach, the hotel offers beach towels and chairs. They also have a small shopping cart to bring to the grocery... More

I reserved the Blue Seas Courtyard after reading the TA reviews and it was wonderful! Room (#6) was clean and very comfortable and grounds are adorable, with Mexican pottery everywhere. I thought it may be a problem, being across the street from the beach, but that wasn't an issue. It's a 2 minute walk and the street you cross is... More

Sparkling pool and a short walk to lots of nice restaurants and place to have a few cocktails. On this recent trip I stayed at the Breakers in Palm Beach, the Eden Roc in Miami Beach and... More

Everything here is perfect! The location is excellent for relaxing, away from crowds and chaos but within walking distance of everything you need...beach, water sports, shopping dining all within a few blocks.
