Overall we had a lovely holiday staying at the Seabank hotel in Feb 2013 with our nearly two year old. The room was really lovely as we had upgraded to the family room which had a sliding partion so that our daughter could sleep while we could read or watch TV and not disturb her. Unfortunately we had to ask to move rooms after the first night because we were initially in a land view room and the noise from the road was very loud from vehicles stuggling to get up the steep hill outside. The ladies on reception however allowed us to move rooms without any question and we were then very happy in the pool view room. The beds were really comfy and the rooms spotlessly clean. There was some building works going on but it really didn't affect or bother us. There was the occassional hammering and the corridor carpets were dirty, but that did not concern us as our room and the rest of the hotel was so clean.
The food suited us but as with all similar hotels the food choices weren't rotated often, but there are other resturants that you can eat in although you have to book. The Jungle had really lovely food and massive portions, but we found there was no atmosphere as it was virtally empty and the service was poor. The Chinese was tasty and had a initimate atmosphere but limited choice.
The indoor pool was nice although a little on the cold side, but fine once you got over the shock. It was good that you can hire beach towels for a refundable deposit but we found that they closed earlier than advertised so returning the towels at the end of the holiday has to be planned to make sure you get there before they close.
The hotel location was pefect for us, right across the road from the beach and bus stop from which you can access the whole island really easily and cheaply. If you want more night life and restaurants then it means getting a bus, but with a toddler we didn't get out in the evenings. We would have liked more information leaflets to be available in the reception area, but we found the list of bus numbers perfect to help us plan our days. The free Wi-fi in the whole hotel was brilliant too.
The only thing that could have made our holiday better was to have washing machine facilities on site. They have a laundry service but it is very, very expensive so we ended up having to hand wash some clothes in the bath.
Overall, we had a really great time, and would love to come back to this hotel again.
