We recently returned from an 8 day stay at Southern Seas and must say we had an excellent time. We stayed in 3 different rooms during our stay, 16, 20 & 17. The reason for room changes is because we booked late but Teresa & Yolanda were able to accommodate us and work with our schedule. All 3 rooms had... More

We found this resort because our usual place had closed. We were there in Sept. 2014 for a long weekend. It was great. The staff was very accommodating, the apartment was nicely decorated and the kitchen was very well stocked. It was a little more expensive than what we would spend for a long weekend but it was worth it.... More

My husband gave me a trip to Florida for Christmas so that I could visit my family, and lucky for me my husband couldn't remember the other places we have stayed. My room was awesome with a great view of the ocean. It was clean and very comfortable. Yolanda and Teresa are warm and welcoming, I loved them both the... More

Every year during the thanksgiving weekend my cousins and my daughter-in-law and myself escape to the beach for 2 nights. It took us a couple of tries but after we found this place we've never looked for another, this is our 2nd year and we've reserved it for next year. The apartment is fairly modern, clean and slide open the... More

My trip began on Saturday Nov. 15 and I was greeted by a very friendly "Yolanda". Within minutes I felt like we had known each other forever. She escorted me to apartment 18 (even pulled my larger bag up the stairs, bless her heart!) and once entering the suite I knew I had made the right decision. Much of the... More

I arrived Sunday & was met by Yolanda. She was very kind and welcoming, so I felt right at home immediately. She showed me to my room which had just been remodeled (#29). It was right on the beach - NOTHING between my windows and the ocean but sand! I made sure to leave the windows & blinds open every... More

If you want to take the edge off and feel at peace this is the place to stay. Great staff! We travel and stay at many fine hotels and this place is our favorite. I recommend this hotel as a fantastic place to stay.

My husband and I traveled to Lauderdale by the Sea and stayed at Southern Seas Resort. We came for the beach and got so much more. When we arrived, Teresa was in the office. She could not have been more pleasant. Anything we needed our entire 10 day stay, we just had to ask. We had an oceanfront efficiency room... More
