We enjoyed our 4 night stay with Southern Seas. We originally rented a small efficiency which was ok, clean but a bit on the small side. This was a working vacation and we needed more table room to spread out with our computers. Fortunately it was off-season and not a busy week, the staff was very helpful in finding us... More

Yes, but that's where the good ends. We knew coming in that it was an old property (as are most in LBTS) but we didn't know so many things are probably original or close to it - furniture, doors, fixtures). The worst thing was the air in the main area (we had #17) never got cold and even worse never... More

This hotel is in an excellent location - but that is the best part of it. This place is in serious need of maintenance/renovation - from top to bottom. Our 3rd floor room had a potentially great view, but the windows were so dirty and inside blinds hard to open -- never got to enjoy. TV's are ancient - HD... More

due to a last minute decision to go to my favourite spot: Lauderdale by the Seas, we were limited to the selection of locations available to us. Usually stay at High Noon, but totally booked, nevertheless took the next best place according to TA. Well, other than the wonderful beaches and location to all the surrounding amenities, the Southern Seas,... More

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.
