Pool area , marina and ship to cruise The garden were beautiful , all areas clean and good food in restaurants

There was a tremendous amount of disgusting dirty items in the room.

This place sucked. There was nothing to do, no amenities, everything was overpriced and there was no place to eat.

Awesome places, great location and family friendly! We will be back !

The resort is nice, has a lot of bars and restaurants. We stayed at the marina and enjoyed the view. I'd recommend this resort.

We had a wonderful time! Beautifully decorated resort and the staff at all areas were outstanding! We can’t say enough about south seas and are planning our next trip ASAP!

Unit was dated and dirty with need for updated-renovations.

Nice place, I think the resort should offer transportation (golf carts) for a reduced rate. $125 for one day is outrageous

Very family friendly . Saw dolphins from the pool and manatee in the marina

A room change from one one bedroom to a three bedroom that have a few of the water. The patio was screened and very nice. Really enjoy the floor plan. * The lady who checked us in was very nice, unfortunately her accent was so thick we couldn't understand her (and I travel for a living - and can typically understand accents). The lady who checked this out was delightful, and the rest of the staff were excellent. I was need to stay at the location one more time before I would he able to determine if I would refer a friend (based on the room odor).

This building was older, but had new flooring, kitchen & 2 bathrooms. 2 nice TVs and spacious living room. Walls and doors were rusty/weathered. But was nice. Our unit was not as pictured.

I would not recommend this hotel. We stayed during the off season and the rooms were extremely dirty-- bugs, dirty contact lenses on the ground, wrappers next to the bed when we checked in, etc. Also, the staff is unfriendly and unhelpful. The hotel claims to have a beautiful running route through the resort. The route is just the main road of the resort and the security staff for the resort flies down the road even though the speed limit is 19 mph. There are no sidewalks to run or walk on-- it is an accident waiting to happen.

1st time there and absolutely loved the resort - could not think of 1 thing to criticize or improve upon - great staff, amenities and food! Very clean resort and beautiful

This is our second stay at South Seas and hopefully won't be our last. Easy check in, room was ready when we arrived. Everything is at the resort so you really don't have to leave. But good restaurants close by. The trolley takes you to the entrance of the resort and you can walk from there to several good restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful boats that were decorated for Christmas! Beautiful resort, very relaxing!

South Seas Island Resort accommodations are overpriced. For the excessive amount we paid for two nights we expected a much higher end quality room. The carpets are dated and unclean. We had to request our bed linens changed and pillows,as they had a tobacco and perfume odour. Plastic drinking cups Really? I would expect real glass at South Seas and upgraded cleancoffee maker We had NO HOT WATER on the date of check out! Unacceptable . Thank you for the cold shower South Seas
