4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed in a tennis villa for four days over Christmas. Some reviews from earlier in the year made me a little nervous, but we had no complaints at all. The staff were great, the rooms were very clean, we had daily maid service, restaurant options (both in the resort and on the island) were many and varied. There are... More

To quote Forrest Gump, at South Seas you never know what you're gonna get. Our family rented three different homes for a five day family vacation over Christmas. Our homes ranged from a brand new beautiful home (in a mangrove swamp - no ocean or bay views) to a musty condo with beautiful beach views but in need of a... More

Went here for Christmas with my girlfriend after she found a groupon. We had an excellent time. It is family atmosphere but plenty of stuff for adults to have fun like golf, and sunset beach bar. Our favorite was the bar on the water in the pool area near The Pointe restaurant. It was fun having a drink and the... More

rooms were adequate, somewhat dated, poor mattresses. Some of the views were great! The staff at this resort were some of the friendliest, most helpful, you will find anywhere. The resort is large and has a lot of nice facilities, restaurants.

South seas island resort is a great place for a family getaway. The staff is very welcoming and made our stay extremely enjoyable. Our kids are still talking about their stays here. Travis did everything possible to make everyday the best day ever at the pool.

We rented a house on the resort for the week before Xmas. This is our third time to this resort but our first house rental. Almost everything about this resort is fabulous. The house we stayed in was spotless with a view of the ocean and a screened in porch overlooking the spotless pool, beach and sunset. Every time we... More

Actually we are not resort type travellers, we usually avoid these places, but since we have our baby boy, who's almost 2, we thought it would be a good idea to have everything included. And what a good idea this was! First of all there's the superfriendly staff; from helpfull front desk staff, to the jolly elf, to the gratefull... More

Marvelous 3-day weekend...again! This time we took part of our family along...including 7' 4, and 1-year old grandsons. We got them a 2-BR beach villa (we stayed in a great room at the Marina). Surprise was a weekend-long party at the Marina, with a boat parade, Santa, elves, cotton candy, pizza, s'mores, snow (bubble machine), and live music. Great party!... More
