My husband and I stayed at Sea Venture many years ago 1990's) and had a wonderful time. I found a great deal on a celebration package and decided to go back for my husband's birthday in June. Since our last stay, they have added on to the hotel and built a covered parking area. Once we parked our car upon arrival, it never left the parking garage. Everything we wanted and or needed was within walking distance.
Check-in was easy and both girls at the front desk were very pleasant. Out room had a full ocean view, fireplace and Jacuzzi tub on the balcony. There was a rose on the bed, rose petals on the floor, chocolate covered strawberries and balloons. It was very romantic and it was actually less expensive to book this deal than the regular rate.
The rooms are well maintained, however they are still the same dark green color that they were in the 90's. I was fine with it, but if that would bother you, I wouldn't recommend staying here.
We visited the restaurant upstairs one night and enjoyed dinner so much that the next night we ordered room service. We both enjoyed our stay very much and have absolutely no complaints.
