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

I would like to commend the management and staff of Southern Seas for the delightful stay I recently had. Originally, I booked my travel at another hotel along El Mar Drive and upon arrival, could not rest my head given the amount of noise, lack of internet, and overall look of the facilities. After a quick walk down the street,... More

So relaxing and literally right on the beach. Have been coming here for over 6 years with family and it's so much fun! Love the pool, farmers market, street festival and the staff is super friendly. The grocery store is walking distance and rooms have little kitchens so you eat healthy and cheap if you'd like. This is a small... More

Following my conversation with you the other day, we are still investigating your specific issue, and as we discussed all parties have not been able to reconcile the alleged events in order to be brought to closure.
