I just spent a wonderful 4 days at the South Seas with my friend. We had such an amazing time!
Check was 1-2-3. The hotel, grounds and rooms were well kept and clean. The staff were very friendly. The pool is a decent size and it's an ocean front hotel. Complimentary breakfast. There were staff members walking around the beach with a menu for food and drinks. Beach/Pool towels are free. I loved that! You are in walking distance to everything!
The A.C is on a timer. At first I was a little bothered by this, but then I realized I would spend most of my time outside than inside. No biggie. You have to pay for the beach chairs and umbrella. Two chairs and an umbrella cost $30 for each day. That was a bummer. The food at the Pikini Grill was eatable, but not fantastic. Oh, and if you order a beer on the beach, expect to get it in a paper cup. That was just a no-no for me. The room walls are a bit thin. I thought I wouldn't be able to fall asleep, but I did. So if you feel the noise may not let you sleep, bring ear plugs. The beds are firm and the pillows are just wonderful. The comforter was so cozy.
EXTRAS: You MUST go to Espanola Way. Eat at Tapas y Tintos. The food is amazing. The Seafood Paella with rice was mouth watering. It's made fresh. A little pricey, but it's for two people and you get a pitcher of sangria or a bottle of wine. Oh, and try the baked Queso de Cabra! I promise, you will not regret it! Stay AWAY from Miss MAO. Its Japanese and Chinese cuisine. The food was horrible!
