Our room faced the ocean. We were only steps from the beach. Beautiful sunrises, ocean was warm enough to swim, surfboard or just be lazy on the beach. Resort offered chairs & umbrella to rent in case you forgot yours. Very clean. Had a small sink with counter area in room along with a microwave & a med sized refridg.... More

The rooms were definitely average but the location and view made up for it. I would stay here again. As long as you are not expecting luxury but want a great place on the beach then this is the place to stay.

We stayed here for 3 nights with our newborn in June. The rooms were quite large-even with a pack n play, we had plenty of space to move around. There is a walkway from the hotel restaurant to the beach. Starting around 9AM, there is a stand that rents beach umbrellas, chairs, boogie boards, etc. Thanks to 5AM feelings, we... More

I have reviewed the Sea Ranch Resort and its on-site restaurant, Beachside Bistro before and have never been disappointed. This time it was to celebrate my wife's birthday. We were welcomed like family, service was impeccable as usual and the Bistro with its world class chef, John made the experience so delightful. This is the ONLY property in the Kitty... More

We booked an ocean front room with a king bed. The hotel was "noisy", loud air conditioner and neighbors. Could not hear the surf 50' away! Staff was not helpful in resolving issues. However the place was clean and modern. Nice little kitchenette. Good water pressure and lots of hot water. Great for a last minute weekend away, but not... More

Stayed at the Sea Ranch June 19 - 21 as a "girls weekend". Room was ready at 4 as promised. After getting into our room, we noticed that the balcony door would not lock. Not a huge deal, we didn't think someone would climb two stories and break in. The room had been cleaned, but there was mildew on the... More

This is a nice hotel in a great oceanfront location close to restaurants shopping. The ocean front deck/bar called Beachside Bistro is small but relaxing to enjoy a drink and appetizers. We really liked the Carribean Conch Fritters, Crab Dip, and Pork Egg Rolls. The Beach Burgers were also good. Rooms clean and beds comfortable.

Sea Ranch Resort is a great value. The price is right for an oceanfront property. But there are a few things that keep it from being a fantastic value. Read on. Location: A+. Right on the beach, less than two blocks from Goombays. Plentiful parking. The beach is very narrow here, so if you are expecting a very wide spacious... More

First off the maint staff is doing all they can do and I commend them for that. We are literally sitting here with a 17 week old baby sweating off the end of our nose. We've lost 250 dollars worth of food due to the fridge being shot. The AC hasn't worked all day and now we have been switched... More
