I recently purchased a Groupon for this place and my husband and I put it to use immediately, as a night away from the kids was long overdue for us. We purchased the option for a King room with an ocean view. We were pleasantly surprised by the room and the view. It was pretty near perfect. I'm a Florida... More

Pool was a bonus...clean and water was heated. The room was spotless and comfortable.... More

We had a great stay at the Sea Ranch. Our room was on the 4th floor and had a gorgeous view of the ocean. We had a balcony with two chairs and small table. It was perfect for relaxing, watching the water, and listening to the waves. The rooms are nice and clean, nothing fancy but exactly what we wanted.... More

We had a Groupon deal for a three night stay in an oceanfront room at the Sea Ranch. We had a wonderful time. Cindy, at the front desk was very friendly and professional. When she assigned us our room, Cindy said there was no better ocean view. Some rooms may be as good but none better. The ocean view was... More

We recently stayed at the resort for a quick get away for my husband and I to reconnect. I can not say enough about the staff and the room. The staff welcomed us at our late check in with smiles. Paper work was already prepared. We got to the room and the room was preheated for our arrival as is... More

The rooms are really nice. Especially when 90% of the rooms look over the ocean. What a view. And sound. Im sure the dining facilities, Bistro, are unique now, since they were under construction. Wish we could had dined there for breakfast and dinner. The work out room is sufficient. Very clean. The personnel very friendly and always helpful. Very... More

We requested an oceanfront room, and we were placed in a room with a small window looking into an alley. Also, the TV's are quite small, and they cut out every time the heater/AC turns on. The WiFi was very slow, and the room in general was in poor condition. Very overpriced and overadvertised for what you actually get. The... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for the weekend. The restaurant was open but the pool wasn't. The weather was a little chilly so it would have been nice to get in the indoor pool but no biggie. We ate breakfast (free with the winter setaway pricing) at the restuarant each morning and it was delicious.

The Sea Ranch Resort is great spot right on the beach. There aren't any better views to be found with easy access to the beach. Centrally located for restaurants and shops. Room was clean, and the bed was comfortable.

First off make sure you are not booking in off season. We booked our trip in March during St. Patricks week and the resort does not have their indoor pool and restaurant open then. Call ahead of time to make sure activities are open. They also didn't clean the room very well. We found old alcohol bottles in the closet... More
