great location, friendly staff. QUIET

Right on the beach. Great location AND quiet. The only drawback was the "fitness center," which consisted of a treadmill, old beat up stationary bicycle and small hand weights tucked behind the pool with no AC. Great, friendly staff. Clean rooms. Apple Ipod radio great!

Great Location.

We stayed one night after a cruise. The hotel was very beautiful, the check-in staff was nice (however they forgot to give us our early wake-up call! Luckily we had ORBITZ call us as a reminder!) The location was perfect, the beach was beautiful, but the rooms were right on the hallway and we could hear all the people walking back and forth. It wasn't too bad however. The rooms aren't huge or new, but it's part of the charm of the hotel. The bed was really big, roomy and comfy.

The comfort and location is good

Visit friends and some shopping Minibar in the room will be perfect

Nice staff but lax in security

This started out wrong because they gave us the wrong room but then the front desk gave us a nicer room. A suite on the roof. But all went down the drain when our room was broken into and stuff was stolen. Poor security and no cameras! Never will stay here again. The staff was very pleaseant especially [...] at the front desk.

Good pic for young couples

The hotel is in a great location, within walking distance of pretty much everything (shopping, food, clubs, liquor stores, 24 hour convenience stores and so on!) and right on the bus line if you need to travel further. Also, right on the beach. Hotel has continental breakfast (bagels, cereal, fruit, etc.). The staff was friendly as well. The only thing was that the pool/bar area closed at about 9pm on weekends, so instead of just being able to walk through the back of the hotel like you can during the day, you have to walk all the way around the block to get to the beach/ boardwalk if you want to go for a nice romantic night stroll . Also this rules out dining options within the hotel at night as far as their restaurant is concerned. This is a minor inconvenience for what you get, but still just FYI! I would recommend staying here b/c it is reasonably priced and cannot emphasize enough, an excellent location. The rooms aren't huge and no fridge or microwave, but if you're there as a couple or with a few friends, it's fine, and the view is nice. You won't be staying in the room much anyway!

Also short walk (about 10 minutes) to shops and more restaurants on Lincoln Ave., which is like the strip at night! Go!

Relaxing Trip for Two

"This Winter Is Awful" "Why do we even live in Chicago?" "AHHHHHGHGHGH!!!" That lead us to the South Seas, and we couldn't of been happier. It was the perfect place for a couple (or family from what we observed) who wants to be on a beach, but doesn't need to be caught up in an all day rave. We had a great time relaxing at the pool, walking to the beach, hanging in the hammocks, and drinkings the tropical drinks! At the South Seas there is a good mix of young couples, young parents, singles, and those 50+. You Won't Regret Your Trip!

South Beach getaway

It was like entering paradise through the hammocks & spa areas right to South Beach! Fantastic location. Wonderful walk way just behind hotel along South Beach to Art Deco. Room was a bit small, but only used it for sleeping, we were out enjoying the 80s weather in April, South Beach and shopping all day. South Seas Hotel provided a good free breakfast for its guests.

Lincoln just a short walk from South Seas Hotel. Reasonably priced al fresca restaurants, shopping, etc. all in one location.

Quite nice!

I was pleasantly surprised overall with the hotel. paid $20 extra for "beach view" room, which overlooked pool. the hotel is not fancy, but very well run, great location, clean, well-furnished room with good light--not overly large, but big enough for one person, or two. nice bathroom, very helpful staff. Nice pool. had a slightly musty feel in the hallways, but not bad. They even delivered the Sunday NY Times at my request! Pretty good value for money--although I don't know how other hotels stack up.

very nice to relax

we didn't like the room but it was clean, the staff was very attentive and friendly and the hammocks and palms made our vacation.maybe you'll be a little disappointed because of the room, but is clean , they have an excellent breakfast and you'll relax by the pool.
