My family and I stayed at Wyndham Sea Gardens for one week in June 2013.
My family and I stayed in a two-bedroom (Room 356 in Key West building) for the week with a balcony. The unit was quite large, and we had a balcony that stretched from the living room to the master bedroom continuously that overlooked the pool by the building. As for the unit, we had everything we needed. The beds were large and comfortable. The TV's had a lot of channel options, with programming for children. There were both a jacuzzi and a shower in the master bedroom, and there was another bathroom with a shower beside the second bedroom. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything we needed to cook, though we didn’t do that often. The unit was also very clean and updated. We were very pleased with the accommodations.
As our family did not take advantage of many of the amenities of the resort, we did not have frequent interaction with the staff; however, the interaction we did have were generally positive. The first night we were here, we realized we didn’t have a trashcan. My wife called over to the front desk, and they said they’d fix it. My wife called three more times, and she received the trash can the next morning. Later in the week, the battery in one of the smoke detectors began chirping. Within ten minutes of calling the help desk, a maintenance man was in the unit replacing several batteries. He was pleasant and helpful. I was struck by the cheerfulness of the helpstaff. When I crossed paths with the helpstaff, they always greeted me and asked how I was. Overall, we were satisfied with staff experiences.
AMENITIES OF THE RESORT
Beyond our room, the resort provided ample amenities. The resort has two buildings across A1A that are right on the ocean. This provides direct beach access to all occupants of the resort. From our room in the Key West building, we could walk (two young children, my wife, and I) through the resort and to the beach in under five minutes. The resort grounds included at least four pools. An action sports provider was located on the beach in front of the resort for those interesting in jet skis, kayaks, etc.. There was also a tiki bar by the central pool.
Additionally, a sandwich shop and a spa are located on the resort grounds. We did not use either service, so I don’t know how they were. Wireless internet was also available in the unit, which was a big plus for me to get a little work done while on vacation. The internet connection was slow, but it was consistent. All in all, the resort had everything we needed.
The only downside I sensed regarding my stay at the Sea Gardens resort was the lack of a kiddie pool for younger children. All the pools on the premises were pretty standard in water depths and features. For us, my wife and I took our children to Wyndham Palm Aire several evenings to swim in their pool, as it has kid-friendly features, and we sometimes swam with our children in the more conventional pool by our unit. However, it would have been nice to have some form of kiddie pool on the Sea Gardens ground. With so many pools, this seemed like it should be present.
There is plenty to do in the area, but the main attractions are the beach and its associated activities. We found ample activities in Pompano Beach and Fort Lauderdale for our family, and we traveled to Miami twice for activities with relatives.
All in all, we found Wyndham Sea Gardens to be a wonderful place for fun in the sun. Our unit was excellent, and we were right by the beach. When we chose to leave the beach and/or the pools, there was ample activities available in the area. I don’t know how often we’ll come back to south Florida (there were a lot of beaches closer than the 18 hours we drove to here), but we would love to stay at Sea Gardens again if we were coming back!
