Went in September after school started--perfect for relaxation. Pool is right there, very clean, and the beach is steps away, with beach chairs, umbrellas, towels provided. Staff is very friendly in the office and housekeeping.

Beeing there for about 30 years, we went there with our kids and now they come with their children. The staff are very kind and friendly and accomodating; very secure for kids. It is the best in the area, directly to the beach.

I was graciously referred to Southern Seas by a neighboring resort where I usually stayed, but was booked. Talk about good energy and altruism. I was... More
