The resort itself is well run and has plenty of amenities. WE loved the beaches, the pools and the hot tubs. Shelling is awesome also on the beaches as well as the sunsets. The only complaint was no baking pans in our condo.

Our visit at South Seas Island Resort exceeded our expectations! The staff went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time. The complimentary breakfast at Harbourside Restaurant from Lysan and the complimentary extended golf cart rental from Melvin were very nice

Our experience was lovely in our beach cottage. We met another couple that said their cottage had not been updated since the 70’s. They were not happy as we paid the same price. Make sure when you make a reservation that you insist on an updated unit.

"I think you have to ask for an “owners unit”, as they are more updated than a timeshare unit."
"Beach Villas - second floor and above are ocean views"
"We like higher floors but there are so many places to stay on the resort, I cannot offer more than that."
"I was in an apartment, not at the hotel, but friends told me it is great"
"South side is quiet with most activities on the north side of the island. Down load South Seas Island Resort app for more details."
