“The ideal local family vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

If you have a family and do not want to get on a plane, Seapointe Village is the ideal vacation.
Although Wildwood itself is very Honkey Tonkey, Seapointe sits on the very end of Wildwood Crest , in a gated owner and guest community. We have been going there every summer for 25 years. The grounds are beautiful and kept immaculate. The swimming pools are never crowded.
There are tennis courts and a small gym. You always rent an apartment and not just a room.
The beach is private and very well kept.

Room Tip: ocean view is ideal.

Rented a townhouse in front of center pool. Everything was great. Site and house was very clean. Travelled with my parents hubby two teenage boys and two little boys 3 and 5. There was something for everyone. My dad who can't stay in the sun enjoyed sitting on the balcony overlooking the pool. The pools were great for everyone. The beach was a short walk away about five minutes. The gated property felt very safe so the teenage boys could go off on their own. Overall a great family vacation!

All the best of a Florida or Carribean Resort, without air travel. I would stack the Wildwood and Cape May beaches against any of them. Cape May has all the charm of an old New England seafaring town with some great restaurants to boot. Seapointe Village offers immaculately clean facilities and pools, bbq grills, 24 hour security and ample parking. Great rates off season, when the crowds are gone and the weather and water are warm.

So ANNOYED! Here we have hard working staff, a lovely physical site, but policies with no heart and no administrative individual with the clout or kindness to buck the system. This was our 4th time at Seapointe and our LAST! We have been all over our country at upscale condos and never have we found this arrogant, petty attitude. Our complaint is about principle. Seapointe obviously does not care that you leave happy. Their rigid, ungracious policy in this case defies common sense.

Although assured upon booking this HIGH PRICE PLACE, that we could check out at 11am and remain on the property on the last day and use the change facilities, this did not happen! The day arrived with a beautiful sunny sky and we were told that we must move our car from the garage ( okay - inconvenient, but fair) and we were told we must limit our location to the beach (no pool use at all) . Then, although they HAVE indoor shower areas, they insisted that we could clean up and shower OUTDOORS before our long drive home. PLUS, we would have to pay for this privilege, per person!!! (We were asking for 3 hours.)

Every individual we approached about amending these rules for just our 2 children agreed that this was unfair and ridiculous. BUT no one had the clout or concern or connections to step up and advocate for us. Pat in Housekeeping was lovely, but....Juanita from Housekeeping was so sweet but this is her first year at Seapointe....The man in South Beach's Security office could care less about customer satisfaction and gave us legal psycho-babble about their insurance . ( Len is an attorney and knows better.) The young woman in Security was very tight-lipped. You could read her body language. She agreed with us, but.....No guts to help us. Administrative office -Darling Rosalie could not help. No one in the office seemed to really care.... "It is a rule!" Nothing!

So, we made sure our condo was immaculate, as we found it, and left. (Yes, Seapointe is clean and has so much going for it.)

We plan to send this review to all our friends and family who vacation often at the Jersey shore.

My family and I booked a room at the South Beach Building 702 in mid August 2013. The grounds were attractive and seemed clean. The amenities were not bad. Pools nice and clean for the most part for the exception of having quite a bit of leaves in some of them. The big problem was the condo. First we discovered that the unit which was clearly advertised as having internet access and was the main reason we choose it did not have it. We searched for a modem or router or a WiFi ID specifically associated with the unit and there was none. We called the office and complained and were first told to use the free (UNSECURED) WiFi in the lobby, to which I said no thanks and explained the unit was advertised to have internet and that is what I paid for. At which point they said they would send a maintenance person to come help us. What we got was some kid with a 2 way radio who walked around the unit looking for a modem which we explained we already did. No surprise he found nothing and told us he would inform the office and they would calls us. The office called and told us they would contact the owner of the condo. after some time passed we received another call from the office telling us that the owner did not offer internet access but since they included it in the advert if decided to come down to the office and complain we would receive some sort of compensation. For the rest of the week I was forced to use my cell phone as a hotspot incurring high charges for going over the data plan mostly because of the extremely poor cell phone reception we received in the unit, and we were on the 7th floor.

Next we discovered some serious safety issues with the unit. We have a 2.5 year old and as I was setting up my son's room I discovered the window in his room to be open with no gate, no screen and to top it off the locks for the windows were not installed properly and would not lock. Who in their right mind rents to people that might have kids with them and not make sure the windows lock properly especially in a 7th floor unit?! Luckily I have a small tool set in my car and was able to fix the problem and get the windows to lock properly. It seemed that every window and even the main balcony door suffered from locking issues. Another issue was the beds. They were extremely HARD, creaky and uncomfortable. It was so bad my wife and I alternated sleeping on the sofa just to try and get some sleep. Also if you like a dark room to sleep you are out of luck in this unit especially since the balcony lights stay on all night and the window coverings do little to block any light. Another issue was the walls were a bit thin as I could here a dog barking in the unit below, and the dog barked all week and sometimes late at night which kept my son up a couples of time as it was loudest in his room. Lastly parking in the underground parking lot is hit or miss since there is no assigned parking some space are clearly better than others and some can damage your SUV if your rear door opens upwards as their are spaces with cement cross sections which come down so low you door will slam into them. The garage only has a 6 foot 3 inch clearance. I don't think my family and I will be renting from this place again as it the condo was overpriced and the quality was not great.

Room Tip: Confirm in room internet access. Check the window locks in your units.

stayed in the garden building (213) in mid-august for the first time at seapointe village.

overall, the amenities and grounds are very nice, clean and well maintained... but you are paying a lot of $$ to stay here and in my opinion, its really NOT worth the price at the end of the day... a regular condo with a pool and close to the beach for 1/2 the price would work just fine, the "upgrade" to this "resort" isnt really worth it.

the private beach is great - sand was soft and water was very clean. did not rent chairs or buy any snacks so cant comment on the prices...

all of the pools were clean and had plenty of chairs, tables and umbrellas for all. some pools are more crowded then others so you have to find the one that you like... we tried them all!

the doors to all buildings are locked and you need a key - or a key code - we were having issues with our keys, you had to try 3-4 times and really wiggle them to get the door open... not fun when trying to push a stroller and carry pool/beach stuff. we asked about the keypad in the office and Mickey lied directly to my face and said the Garden building didnt have a code... we saw people using a code from the moment we arrived so i'm not sure why she lied... but we simply asked another guest who willingly gave us the code right away and we used that for the rest of our stay.

our unit was as clean as expected but the furniture in the bedrooms was way out of date and the tvs in each bedroom were smaller than the size of a laptop screen... thank goodness the living room had a tv from the 2000's (large flatscreen) HOWEVER the dvd player DID NOT WORK. we reported this to the office who sent maintenance who left a note that said you had to turn the dvd player on to use it... REALLY? wow, dont you think we tried that? it powered on but when you pressed open/close nothing happened so you couldnt get a dvd in there. trust me, we tried several times and have small kids who watch dvds daily so we are quite familiar with how to operate a dvd player... needless to say, no movies for the kids which some might think is no big deal, but tell that to my toy story fanatic son!

internet/wifi access is a JOKE! our unit didnt have wifi which is fine b/c all the buildings have wifi in the lobby, right? well the garden building wifi was ALWAYS inoperable. i overheard some residents discussing it in the lobby (one of the residents was actually the president of their condo association) so this is clearly a known issue that they dont bother to fix. ALSO cell phone reception is horrible... we have iphones, one AT&T and one Verizon... neither worked in the condo and only one worked outside on the balcony... i had to leave seapointe village to use my phone...

called the office to speak to rosalie for info on discount tickets for morey's piers as she is listed as the contact for this information... she was "at lunch" and no one else could answer any questions so had to wait for her to return. she returned and i got her on the phone BUT she wasnt at her desk so she couldnt answer my simple question -- what is the discount price for the rides wristband? -- she had NO CLUE b/c she didnt have the info in front of her.

there are very few restaurants and activities in walking distance so be prepared to be in and out of your car when you need to go places.

we will not be going back to seapointe village - there are TONS of cheaper alternatives with great pools and beach access... which are also closer to parks, activities and places to eat.

Room Tip: we had a family with kids above us and it sounded like the kids were running laps the ENTIRE time we...

We didn't know really what to expect and this far exceeded our hopes. The place is just beautiful-gorgeous landscaping, meticulously kept grounds, and stunning pools. Our room in the Garden apartments is great. Love the smaller feel of the building. Not a lot of noise in the hallways etc. beach is so close to walk to. The kids love everything! The waterside, the playground, the pool with the bubbling water and of course the beach which is beautiful. We got marshmallows and roasted them on the bonfire they make in the evening by one of the pools-kids loved it as did we:) we want to book already for next year!!!
