We returned Sunday, March 10 from an absolutely fabulous week at Seashore Bay. Here's the straight goods.
Yes, the room needed updating but the bed was comfortable, the air conditioner worked, it was neat as a pin and the bathroom was absolutely fine. There were even two Toronto television stations to catch up on local news. We had a luxury oceanview room in Villa 7 and I've attached sunrise and sunset pictures from our balcony. It's such a joy to walk a few steps to the beach. Villas 6 and 7 are at the north end of the property and the surf is nicer. The beach at the other end gets A LOT of seagrass in the surf.
Yes, you have to reserve your beach chairs but I've never been to a resort where you didn't.
The food was terrific. We ate every meal in the buffet because it was THAT good. The manager's beach buffet on Thursday night was lost on us. The music was too loud and the line-ups left something to be desired.
The beach is awesome and if you like to snorkel, swim out 200ft and you'll see stingrays, puffer fish, sea cucumbers, starfish and urchins galore. Take your own snorkel equipment because it's $30 to rent at the resort.
The grounds were kept perfectly. My husband said the gym was terrific although close to the road.
This is not a resort for teens or young adults. It's small and quiet - much better for young families and "grown-ups". :)
The staff is so friendly and helpful. They were in the process of hiring more staff while we were there.
I have travelled to several Caribbean locations and this is the first resort I would revisit. It's a shame that we probably won't be able to afford it once the renos are done.
One thing to note: you don't need Jamaican dollars, you'll be fine with U.S.
Do not hesitate to book Seashore Bay - we absolutely loved it!
