My wife and I have stayed at Sea Watch many times, and have never had a bad experience. It is not the newest or most ornately furnished of the grand strand resorts, but it is more than adequate and perfect for a couple on a long weekend getaway. We rented the deluxe one-bedroom suite, and the size and layout were... More

The 'condo' was nice, but older. I think the tower we were in was the original. The rest of the property looked newer. Not really what I expected. You walk in to the bedroom, go through that to a small hallway with bath, kitchenette and sitting area. The balcony had a great ocean view, as well as the swim pools... More

I am an avid review reader when looking for places to stay, so I read review after review after review. We wanted somewhere that was a great value and a great location. The general vibe I got from this resort was that it was a great location but some of the rooms were outdated. The beach spot itself was fantastic... More

Reservations made for one week but did not understand there wasn't a washer/dryer in the room. There was a laundry room on lower level. WiFi was simply no good. Not enough bandwidth for large hotel.

We really loved our stay there. One glitch was the ants we reported on Tues. and they came on Wed. to spray and again on Thurs. We asked to move to another room after they sprayed. Things were wet, ants were in my luggage, purse etc. However, we felt like we would go back again. The breakfast was great, buffet,... More

Beautiful resort, awesome room right on the beach!! Very nice and clean and our room was huge. The breakfast buffet is a great deal and the omelet/waffle man is wonderful!!!! The pool, lazy river and hot tubs were great. And the kids loved the turtle races.
