We really enjoyed our stay! The hotel is right on the beach and so is the pool! Our room was clean and the staff were great! I would definitely stay here again! Walking distance to food. We loved the 20/20 cafe across the street!

This was our third visit with the fine folks at Blue Sea Beach Hotel. We have been very impressed with the staff, and this time with Bessie (front desk) in particular. She was very patient with us in helping with a reservation "user error". The housekeeping staff is always so friendly and accomodating as well. Our room is always comfy... More

It's an average hotel where the rooms are small and somewhat dirty. It's a bit pricey too. However you are located on the beach and near several restaurants. We did have a view of the ocean from our room and we had a patio which was good for drying out our bathing suits and towels from the beach.

The entire trip was great! When we got there at noon our room was ready for us to get settled right away! The location is amazing! On the beach, and right in the middle of everything in PB. Just a quick uber ride to sea world or the zoo! The room even had a mini fridge and a microwave, which... More

The view was perfect and the service was impeccable! One worker named Martina was the nicest one I encountered. She made sure my trip was perfect and when I had lost my bag in a shuttle, she did everything she could to get it back! A great hotel!!

My husband and I traveled here immediately after we got engaged for my husband's birthday. From the moment we checked in, the service was amazing. We were congratulated on our engagement by all the staff members. We upgraded our room to ocean view, which was well worth the price difference. The entire weekend, they would greet us and let us...

Spent three nights at Blue Sea in July. Really nice staff, can,t beat the location, however, for the money I expected better hygiene. Entire hotel has "odor". A little febreeze would go a long way. Sink and toilet in bathroom were moldy. A magic eraser could easily remove all the scuff marks on the white bathroom walls and door. Next... More
