Our one bedroom suite with Kitchenette, with lovely pool was just a half a block from the beach. Also near shops and restaurants and close to many South Florida attractions. The manager Eva and the staff person Vinny were very helpful and accommodating. The once was very

We love the Sea Cliff Resort. Have been staying here for years. You can't beat the location and the service! Eva and Vinnie are awesome. From bringing us a vase for some flowers to bringing us some homemade cookies; they always go the extra mile. It feels like our second home :)

Hi Mary. Thanks for your questions. You can get the pricing by calling 954-776-4240.You're right. 201 does get the sun all day and has a great balcony. The other deluxe room have less sun for those who want a sun break. They do have private balconies as well. We agree the resort needed repairs and since April we have been working like crazy and have new furniture, artwork have painted all the rooms, 24 hour, 7 day a week on site management, new grill, herb garden, upgraded pool mechanics, and an amazing assistant that keeps everything clean and in working order. Please go to Trip Advisor and read our wonderful reviews acknowledging all this work!! The owner lives in North Carolina but is here frequently and in daily contact with me. He is here as I write this to make sure everything is running smoothly as we're having a full season. Thanks again for your message and give me a call if you'd like more information or want to make a reservation. Best, Eva

Mary, I never stayed at the "old" Sea Cliff but I can tell you that I heard the horror stories of how it went down hill under Rosetta's so called management. Now that there is a new actual on site manager, Eva, the place is great all the rooms have been refurnished and updated (see my original review). Believe me if you decide to stay there you definitely will be glad that Rosetta is not in charge and Eva is.

What happened to Rosetta.............
Mary, nothing could be farther from the truth. I know you could not have stayed at the Sea Cliff since the new manager took over or you would not be writing this. You are so wrong about the owner not caring. The motel has been renovated, new furniture, new bedding, new pillows and has never been cleaner. We would love to have you as a guest at the hotel property again. Please take a few minutes and read the current reviews on trip advisor. I am confident that once you stay with us your experience will be so enjoyable that you will continue to come back for years.
