We stayed at the Seacrest for 3 nights on route from the UK to Colombia and it was exactly the chilled experience that we wanted. Peaceful and quiet, but easy walking distance to the beach, shops and restaurants. Mark and Maggie are very pleasant, interesting and helpful, the apartments are simple, stylish and clean. Everything that you need including beach towels! A good selection of books to read during your stay. Very clean pool area and well planted gardens. We would definitely stay here again.m

Would recommend to all - this beautiful property is just a minute walking to the beach and the service is that of a five star hotel! Mark the owner was waiting for us to arrive and was always available for all our needs and gave us great local recommendations. The rooms are a fantastic value - spacious, clean, and full amenities.

We, myself and two nephews, were greeted by Mark who was waiting for us, even though we were several hours late in arriving. He was waiting on bench in front of this lovely, tropically landscaped hotel. He showed us to our deluxe room, which was beautiful , very tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. I absolutely loved the marble floors. The bathroom was roomy and the shower.... FANTASTIC ! The kitchenette was perfect for a quick bite or morning coffee .
Mark showed us how the cable worked for our big screen T.V. , informed us how to get the Internet and told us of the local shops and restaurants. Mark let us know that if there was anything we needed, they were just a phone call away.
The pool and patio area is lush and gorgeous. The landscaping is a labor of love for Maggie and it shows by how inviting the patio and pool is.
Mark and Maggie love what they do....they make dream vacations come true. They make Hotel Seacrest your HOME away from home!
My only disappointment was that I couldn't have stayed longer, 6 nights went by too quickly! I hope to make a return visit winter.

Very personal greetings from owners. They communicate with you prior to visit to make sure your stay will be what you expect. Well ours wasn't what we expected, IT WAS WAY BETTER!! Newly remodeled, clean and friendly. The pool and garden area are well kept and so beautiful. Pictures do not let you take in all the beauty it has to offer. I felt like it was my private home!

Hotel Seacrest was by far the best place we have ever stayed at!!
We, my husband, my 15 yr old son and myself, were welcomed by Mark and Maggie, the owners and they made us feel very welcome.
We arrived in the early evening and the pool area looked like a fairytale. Going up to our appartment we were even more surprised. The room looked so fresh and clean, the bathroom was very comfortable and clean and kitchenette was perfect. Everything we needed for our 9-day stay was at hand!
And what we found very important, the beds, were the best!!
We used the barbeque which is located at the poolarea a few times, there is a Publix practically around the corner.
Hotel Seacrest has become very special to us and we will definately come back!!!!

We arrived at the hotel after a trip of 15 days in Florida, the last stop before returning home.

Soon as we arrived, the residential area and the accesses of the hotel seemed welcoming us!
Here, you are not a customer, but the guest receiving special attention!

The place is full of charm.
The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean, equipped with everything we needed and more.
Maggie & Mark decorate the rooms with care and refinement and keep them very clean.
You really feel like home!

The private courtyard brings you harmony to relax, enjoying the pool (very clean, too), and comfortable sunbeds, in a setting of flowers & plants.
The location of the hotel provides all the facilities to get to the beach (5 minutes), promenade in the center of Lauderdale by the sea, or go to a nearby supermarket (Publix).
Mark & Maggie advise you on everything you need, even on choosing a good wine!

But the most affecting to remember of those few days, it is sympathy and the availability of Mark & Maggie. You understand very quickly that they are not there to make business but they choose to put their passion at your service for the most important reason ... they love what they do, in all sincerity! And this you cannot find easily.

So yes, we will return to this wonderful place!
Thanks a lot Mark & Maggie & see you next year, for sharing an important moment with you.
