“Very Pleasant Stay - Friendly Staff.”
Reviewed May 31, 2006

I have now stayed here twice and the first thing you realize is that the Silver Seas is a timeshare property and not new construction. Beyond that it is very homey with a better than average staff who will do what they can to make your stay as pleasant as possible. My large two bedroom apartment - too large to call it a hotel room - was well equipped and clean. The elevators were hit and miss when we first arrived but were fixed within 48 hours. Great location across the street from the beach and convenient walking distance to shopping and dining at Beach Place. I had a business emergency come up during my week there and the staff did all the faxing back and forth for me for less than what Kinko's would have charged and I didn't have to man the machine.

Overall the Silver Seas is a very nice pleasant place to stay and a perfect example of just how important attentive friendly staffing is at a resort property. Having stayed at many of the other Lauderdale properties, the Silver Seas is clearly superior in that regard.

What the reader needs to realize is that the Silver Seas is a Timeshare. Most timeshares in the USA do not provide the same services that the major or even independant hotels offer (like room service...maybe no daily maid service)

The Silver Seas is an old apartment hotel built sometimes around or after WW2. In about 1977, it was converted to interval ownership, one week intervals-ie-timeshare.

It is three levels will elevator (lift). The rooms are older but IMO adequate for a weeks stay at the beach. Parking as of June 05 was free. But many do not feel they might need a car, except to pick up supplies (grocery as Publix or Winn Dixie is a distance).

On watertaxi route, at the Beach Place Dock.

We viewed for purchase a one bedroom sleep six on the second level. We then stayed in the unit for a week. Most units are studios, one or 2 bedrooms.

It had Mexican tile flooring, except the bedroom, which had a blue (shag) rug....which was to be replaced by the next refurb. Their were windows on 3 sides, with two side ocean view. The new St Regis will block the views to the right (south). (It is next to the St Regis Resort and Marriott Timeshares. Small coffee shop sells Barnies Teas & Coffee. Walk to all restaurants, and the beach is across A1A N. Beach area has rentals for jet skis, two lounge & unbrella (all overpriced IMO)

Rooms were clean. Bath was from the 1960s, full sized tub, enlongated toilet, and a wash basin. Kitchen has a small 4 burner (i think gas) stove with a 30 inch oven (looked original from the 1950s) and 18 cu ft refrid. Maint fees & taxes then were near $700 a week, which is why we didn't buy. Lady said big refurb due.

Staff very helpful.

It is right next to Marriott Beach Place and the Starwood St Regis, the Sheraton Yankee Trader, and a favorite for lunch, the Cafe Casablanca....one free lunch with one on weekdays. (go to TA dining for ideas).

We also stayed in the Marriott Beach Place Timeshares two weeks than, and they are pretty new....but the Silver Seas was a place we would also stay. (At least they don't charge T/S guests for parking). If you need to compare the Silver Seas to Marriott, first check pricing. THen check convienence. It is almost a mile to get your car out of the Marriott parking section in Beach Place. And it cost $12.00 a day. No charge at the Silver Seas, for street level (but exterior) parking.

See pix at -------

We would stay again.
