“Beautiful spot in a great location - Excellent value & service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

Would recommend to all - this beautiful property is just a minute walking to the beach and the service is that of a five star hotel! Mark the owner was waiting for us to arrive and was always available for all our needs and gave us great local recommendations. The rooms are a fantastic value - spacious, clean, and full amenities.

We will totally be coming back!! Hotel Seacrest has everything you would want and more at an awesome price. Comfortable, clean rooms, walking distance to the beach and shops, and super helpful owners. We found a new favorite place to stay!!

We, myself and two nephews, were greeted by Mark who was waiting for us, even though we were several hours late in arriving. He was waiting on bench in front of this lovely, tropically landscaped hotel. He showed us to our deluxe room, which was beautiful , very tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. I absolutely loved the marble floors. The bathroom was roomy and the shower.... FANTASTIC ! The kitchenette was perfect for a quick bite or morning coffee .
Mark showed us how the cable worked for our big screen T.V. , informed us how to get the Internet and told us of the local shops and restaurants. Mark let us know that if there was anything we needed, they were just a phone call away.
The pool and patio area is lush and gorgeous. The landscaping is a labor of love for Maggie and it shows by how inviting the patio and pool is.
Mark and Maggie love what they do....they make dream vacations come true. They make Hotel Seacrest your HOME away from home!
My only disappointment was that I couldn't have stayed longer, 6 nights went by too quickly! I hope to make a return visit winter.

Very personal greetings from owners. They communicate with you prior to visit to make sure your stay will be what you expect. Well ours wasn't what we expected, IT WAS WAY BETTER!! Newly remodeled, clean and friendly. The pool and garden area are well kept and so beautiful. Pictures do not let you take in all the beauty it has to offer. I felt like it was my private home!

Hotel Seacrest was by far the best place we have ever stayed at!!
We, my husband, my 15 yr old son and myself, were welcomed by Mark and Maggie, the owners and they made us feel very welcome.
We arrived in the early evening and the pool area looked like a fairytale. Going up to our appartment we were even more surprised. The room looked so fresh and clean, the bathroom was very comfortable and clean and kitchenette was perfect. Everything we needed for our 9-day stay was at hand!
And what we found very important, the beds, were the best!!
We used the barbeque which is located at the poolarea a few times, there is a Publix practically around the corner.
Hotel Seacrest has become very special to us and we will definately come back!!!!

Thank you Astrid, you guys are a very special bunch of people and we really enjoyed meeting you. We're so glad you had such a great experience at our hotel, and we are looking forward to your return. We also would love to visit you guys in Curacao (sounds beautiful there) whenever we can manage sometime off from the hotel, probably not for years now, but we can dream. Thanks again dear, all the best, XOXOX - Mark & Maggie

We arrived at the hotel after a trip of 15 days in Florida, the last stop before returning home.

Soon as we arrived, the residential area and the accesses of the hotel seemed welcoming us!
Here, you are not a customer, but the guest receiving special attention!

The place is full of charm.
The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean, equipped with everything we needed and more.
Maggie & Mark decorate the rooms with care and refinement and keep them very clean.
You really feel like home!

The private courtyard brings you harmony to relax, enjoying the pool (very clean, too), and comfortable sunbeds, in a setting of flowers & plants.
The location of the hotel provides all the facilities to get to the beach (5 minutes), promenade in the center of Lauderdale by the sea, or go to a nearby supermarket (Publix).
Mark & Maggie advise you on everything you need, even on choosing a good wine!

But the most affecting to remember of those few days, it is sympathy and the availability of Mark & Maggie. You understand very quickly that they are not there to make business but they choose to put their passion at your service for the most important reason ... they love what they do, in all sincerity! And this you cannot find easily.

So yes, we will return to this wonderful place!
Thanks a lot Mark & Maggie & see you next year, for sharing an important moment with you.

As we walked in about to check in we were greeted by the owners of the place
Mark and Maggie.

They were so welcoming
They gave us a tour of the place and a run down and were very sweet.

This place is so clean it really amazes me how clean it is.
Me and my husband consider ourselves to be pretty clean people our selves but I must say they beat us lol.

You can literally turn your foot over and there won't even be a piece of lint on your foot lol.

They even cleaned our room two times for the day one time and I knew this cause our garbage was taken out twice that day.

I also loved how they switched up the throw pillows on the bed.
I'm into those things so I noticed it.
Very nice touch.

I also love how they had everything ready for us dishes, cups, silverware, dish soap you name it they had it there.

To me and my husband it was very important for us to stay in a place that had a kitchen because we have a 8 year old daughter and didn't want to eat out every single meal while on vacation.
We wanted to be able to enjoy breakfast and lunch in our room.
Which we did everyday.

This hotel is in a great location
with a supermarket down the block and a cvs and my favorite store Dollar Tree.
Oh and I forgot to mention a really nice beach and great restaurants overall great atmosphere.

My Daughter Kristiana loved Mark and Maggie so much she wanted us to leave her with them when we were going out lol I never told them that but thought that was funny.
They always say a child can pick up good people and that goes to show you how comfortable they made us feel.

Oh and they had so much toys for my Princess to play with outside by the pool and she played with them everyday

They also have 2 BBQ grills which is nice to grill and chill out by the pool.

They also have beach chairs to use to take to the beach with you along with beach towels.

They also have a washer and dryer on site which is nice cause you don't have to go back home with dirty clothes and it's only 1.50 to wash and I believe a 1.25 to dry.

Overall our experience at hotel SeaCrest was amazing truly amazing couldn't ask for anything better.

We are looking to visit again soon Maybe in December.
