I must say I was disappointed with The Blue Seas 'Resort' after reading all the other reviews on TripAdvisor. I found the apartment to be very comfortable but quite dated and in need of modernising. Calling itself a 'resort' is a bit much - there is no bar or restaurant or any other facilites - it's just a few blocks of apartments with 2 pools! The pools were nice - but even in the Broome heat I found them to be too cold - it was freezing and doesn't heat up as it is shaded from the sun. Reception is only open until 5pm so we had to collect our key from a safe - not a very warm welcome! We were quite unfortunate in that we arrived at about 8pm and were being collected early the next moring for a day trip to the Kimberley so we had no opportunity to get something for breakfast. The blue seas provides no food except take-away microwave dinners which are only avaliable while reception is open, and the only shop closes early - so we had to go hungry! The location is handy for Cable Beach and there are some very nice dining options nearby, but I must say I found this 'resort' to be very over-priced.

Dear VDU

Thank you for your review and I am sorry that you felt that our accommodation was overpriced. It was a shame that you could not stay longer as I believe that the self-contained nature of our accommodation with full kitchen facilities may have provided the opportunity to make meals in your apartment and save a little on eating out in Broome.

I hope you enjoyed your tour of the magnificent Kimberley and that you do return and give us the opportunity to provide a different experience at Blue Seas Resort. We have certainly given consideration to your comments and will ensure that our compendium is up to date with details of nearby restaurants and delivery services to ensure this does not occur again.

Hotel in great location, only a 5 minute walk from Cable Beach, and even less to the Zoo Cafe (great for breakfast/lunch) and the new Zeebar (drinks/dinner).

Rooms were clean, service fantastic. Couple of pools in the complex are a great place for recovering from the famous Broome heat (although it's a popular hotel with young families so don't expect tranquility and poolside cocktails).

One piece of advice - request a room on the Cable Beach side of the resort... the other side backs onto a backpackers' hostel and can be noisy at nighttime...

I stayed at the Blue Seas resort in April 2009 for 3 nights. There were 4 of us staying in the apartment and plenty of room. We had a queen bed and 2 single sofa beds.
The room was clean and had everything you could need.

Th resort was ideally located for the stunning Cable beach. We went just off season and mid week so it was quite but very relaxing. We ended up using the barbies most nights, sat round the pool to eat.

There are 2 pools in the resort, both the same with a small shallow bit for kids and a spa.

Overall the accomodation was more than i expected and of a very high standard. If i was to go back to Broome i would definately stay here again.

The Blue Seas is a lovely place to holiday in Broome and ever so close to Cable Beach. A very short walk. The bus stops right in front for trips to town.
One can see the camels travlel to and from their trips to Cable Beach.
The units are kept immaculate, one can cook and each unit has a laundrey. The units also have lovely verandahs with fans. There are common BBQ areas by the pools and places for picnicing at the pool area. The pools are a great place to kick back and relax.
I have been going to Blue Seas for 6 years, the management takes great care of the units and are most helpful.

Booked out nearly the whole resort with guests for my sisters wedding & believe that everyone had a ball. The Bookings Office was great - got allot of us on tours all at once. The Resort staff were friendly and happy for us to use the BQ area to congregate for evening drinks & meals.
Rooms were quite well designed, equip with a full kitchen inc. saucepans, plates, wine glasses etc which was great for cooking in house. Queen Bedroom & two king sofa beds in the lounge area was ample for us. Room was clean and comfortable.

We stayed at Blue Seas Resort in November of 2007 and 2008.
The resort has two heated swimming pools both with spas and all the rooms have a pool view.
The rooms are all self contained and finished beautifully.
Staff were always very friendly.
The resort is located only a short walk from stunning Cable Beach.
Absolutely beautiful resort! We will never stay anywhere else when holidaying in Broome!

We stayed at Blue Seas Resort in mid April 2008, our apartment was in stage 1 overlooking the sparkling pool. We thoroughly enjoyed the tranquil setting and the truly friendly service.
The location of the resort to Cable Beach and a number of restaurants all made for a great holiday experience.
