- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Intimate All inclusive relaxed environment. Helpful well trained staff, gorgeous views, clean spacious room, great food and beverage, entertainment, convenient location to town and airport, private beach, great amenities, just wonderful for the price. Why pay more, once you’ve discovered this gem of a resort. I highly recommend it.
We were at Sea Garden Resort from Jan 8 to 15,2018. We had never been to Jamaica before so did not know what to expect. We picked this resort because it was locally owned and not a big chain and reviews we had read were positive. This is a really nice basic no frills resort. We were checked in and offered a rum punch which was appreciated. We had a pool view room(1005) which was very nice. Kept clean by the cleaning staff with no problems. The whole resort is tended to very well. The beach is great. Friendly staff, always beach towels and cushions available. The food was very good. Always something to find to eat. Very basic. We really enjoyed this resort and plan to return next year. We were not bothered by street vendors and enjoyed our walk into the hip strip. Evening shows were great. The resort is old but they are doing repairs and updating.
We chose this resort because there was a good snorkel reef right off the beach and the price was good and it was Jamaican owned, which meant it would feel more authentic. All those things were great! We arrived and were put at the worst looking room in the place and I went back to the front desk and asked for a room with a balcony as we'd requested and was told to "come back tomorrow". He wouldn't even look at the computer to see what else he had. Same thing happened the next day. Just being dismissed! I gave up. We had no water pressure most of the time and rarely any hot water. The wifi gave out after day 2, and was only good in the lobby. Our flight was out in the evening and check out was noon so I asked if we could stay till supper time in the room (no, it would be $50 and we can't guarantee it), so I challenged them and asked why they cannot guarantee me the room availability? Did they not know the numbers they would expect to have? After half an hour, they finally gave us the room and we agreed they'd waive the charge.The food is Jamaican, mostly, which is wonderful. Breakfast is not so wonderful- hard boiled eggs sitting in very hot water means really burned hands trying to peel them. Fruit at buffets is always fruit brought in from elsewhere when there are soooo many wonderful local fruits. Not sure why there couldn't be mangos. You won't go hungry however! There are 2 bars but only seating for about 8 at each bar, meaning you can't linger. The lobby is vast and uncomfortable for sitting in with no bar. We had to go to the lobby to get wifi, and it rained half our trip so we spent a lot of time there. The bed was super uncomfortable. The bathroom had a pedestal sink which is odd because when you travel you need a place to leave your stuff. The tub was 1 foot deep so not a tub, just a deep shower.The young people who try to get you to play games all afternoon rarely had any takers! The pool is a bit of a dead zone as most people are at the tiny beach area. It's a deep (4 foot) man made horseshoe shaped beach and you can swim past it to the ocean. You can't walk along the beaches to other places here- they're separated by rocks. Step off the resort and you're accosted by very aggressive people. We're quite used to Jamaica and people trying to sell you things but this was way worse.They give you a regular key for your room and if you have the use of the safe, the safe key is also on your room key chain, complete with your room number! Takes the guess work out of being a thief! Fortunately it was a pretty safe group of folks!
What a friendly resort! Jamaican owned and it feels like it! Great private beach and felt secure but not cut off from the real Jamaica. Big up the entertainment crew TRex, Xavier, Dwayne, Shana, Tishana, Shaniqua. Also Kimberly in the games room, Shaq by the pool and all the wonderful bar staff Georgette, Linton, Presley, Romario and Andre to name but a few! Jerome the lifeguard who organised snorkelling on Capt Poly's glass bottomed boat. Highly recommended just a short hop from the airport and right on the Hip Strip! Will defo "Soon Com Bak man"!
This resort has so much potential and management/owners miss it.The entertainment coordinators are amazing ! So friendly and gets people to participate. Kinda disappointing to see that the entertainment managers don't get involved though also.The food sucks, not the taste but it's the same thing every single day. I even complained to the chef and that one day he switched it up but then it was back to usual same things.Front desk ladies are not friendly at all but the guys are great. They couldn't find my reservation when I arrived but yet their shuttle picked me up from the airport so they knew I was coming.. I was alone for the last 3 days of my vacation and the guys always checked in on me to make sure I was okay. The beds are awful.. I complained the first night and was told all the beds are the same so they put a duvet on it to make it softer which did help a little. A few days later I found out they do have different beds in different rooms as I heard a few people talking about how comfy their beds were. Housekeeping did not sweep my floor the whole time I was there. One day I finally had to complain and supervisor came and swept for me and she was so surprised that I was correct you could tell it hasn't been swept. They made beds and gave new towels that's it. Even though I had alot of small little issues the resort did try to fix them as they came along. I think this resort could really be one of the best in Jamaica if the owners and management fix the little things they are missing. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and they have some good staff. Tons of potential. I have been to other resorts in the area and may return as the location is ideal and I like that it's locally run. Hopefully management and owners can catch the little things they are missing in time. Thanks for the relaxing 10 days !
