Sea Splash Resort

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

nothing spectacular at all but not bad either. nice location but no cover from the sun on the beach such as umbrellas, etc. not the place to go if your trying to impress someone but if you want to see Jamaica and the beach at a lower cost, you can do it here. I spent 2 days at sandals and 2 days at sea splash. sandals is a lot nicer but no culture really. at sea splash, a lot more locals (which can be bothersome at times as they will solicit you) and close to margaritaville.

Loved SeaSplash...awesome beach...wonderful staff...great location. We enjoyed Norma's Restaurant and the bar at the hotel...several great restaurants within walking distance. Great reggae music at Alfred's and Roots Bamboo..fantastic jazz on Sunday nights at The Palms with the most amazing band and female singer...not to be missed! My only complaint for Sea Splash...could have used a blanket or bedspread on the bed...it was a bit cold at night with the a/c but could not sleep without it. Also, would have enjoyed some reggae or Jamaican style music at the bar/beach rather than the constant blaring of the TV. My sister and I booked this trip for total relaxation and this was just perfect!

Sea splash was perfect for our last minute trip to Jamaica on a budget. It's cute, quiet, and conveniently located on the beach. The junior suite was pleasant and clean. However, a little paint and a few minor updates would have been favorable. The staff was nice and accommodating. It is not a luxury hotel but it was a good place to just relax and get away.

We absolutely loved SeaSplash. Our family spent the week after Xmas (Dec 26-Jan2nd) at this lovely, small resort. 3 teenagers (19, 17, 14 - girl, boy, girl)enjoyed every minute. We have traveled quite a bit with our kids - Mexico, Bahamas, Cayman's, St Thomas, Italy, Greece, Florida. We do not look for the ritzy all-inclusives where you can be with the masses of Americans & every moment pampered or Cruise people getting off on shore for the day. We look for a safe, clean, nice, friendly, small resort where we can have a kitchen and a feel of the culture - and of course, the sunset!! SeaSplash was all of that. Here is our thoughts: 1) ROOMS - We booked two 1-bedroom suites (which have full kitchens) and both were on the upper floor with the higher ceilings & loft. The kids suite (room 16) had a king bed, pullout sofa and loft with two double beds, so the 5 of us could actually have all fit in that one room. However, we can't make do with two adults & 3 teenagers and one bath, so we booked two suites. Our suite (room 18) had the king bed and pullout sofa as well, but our loft only had one double bed. The rooms were fine. Always clean but not plush. We saw one ant - no other bugs. We don't care if our room is plush as we spend our days on the beach or doing things like a snokerling trip, watersports, or day trip. The rooms were not as worn as I expected from some of the reviews. The curtains could be updated, but the rest was fine - no stains or holes. SeaSplash was similar to what we found on other islands and in Europe, particularly Greece. They don't run out and replace everything constantly as we do in America. The room was clean, no smells and always a nice hot shower. 2) STAFF - The staff was wonderful. Always attentive and friendly. We treated them with the respect they deserve, pleases, thankyous, and polite waiting when needed. Trudy, the manager, took care of anything we needed and said hello to us by name and asked us if we had any needs everytime we saw her. Originally, we were to go to Jamaica last March to celebrate our 25th anniversary, cancelled when my husband was unexpectedly diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. Now post surgery and a full recovery from cancer, we booked our "makeup" trip with the kids for right after Xmas when our college child was home. Our first room (room 1 I think)was on the lower level near the restaurant and pool. There was little way to feel privacy as the walkways were on either side of the room's windows and the curtains don't seem to completely shut. It also felt much darker than our kids suite upstairs. Not exactly the feel we needed for our anniversary/cancer-free celebration trip. We asked Trudy that evening and she immediately said she would take care of it -our things were moved to Suite 18 upstairs the next afternoon. 3) RESTAURANT - we only ate at Norma's the first evening. The food was good and always had people there, but we went on to experience other restaurants on the beach and in town. We got a pot of coffee on the beach every morning - Yum!! Great coffee, wonderful local sugar too. Might be a wait for the check so plan accordingly. The staff would politely catch us that evening to clear our tab if we had gone on for the day. The Bar is right there on the beach and are very nice to work with. They play music all day so you can have your chaise lounge and enjoy the beautiful scenery everywhere you look. The hot tub was hot while we were there. It sits between the beachbar and restaurant for a relaxing view of the ocean/sunset. We ate at Sweet Spice downtown (local favorite), Kuyaba's (great atmosphere and food!!), Krystals at Palm Resort, Sunrise Club (wonderful italian and international customers) and of course, went to Rick's cafe for the divers and sunset. 4) LOCATION & BEACH - There are shops and small food places and restaurants all around SeaSplash. It is in a safe feeling area and you can take a long walk in either direction. Yes, there ar...

Sea Splash Resort was my idea of a perfect hotel in Jamaica--small, personal, tropical landscaping, friendly staff and a beautiful beach. The piping frogs at night are magical, and you will also see hummingbirds and bread fruit trees! The room (junior suite) was not really a suite but a room and a bathroom, but adequate for two. We had a garden view which was lovely, but I would request a balcony or patio next time. I learned that each of the motels has a group of drivers who will take you wherever you want to go, and will also pick you up when you are ready to return. In the future, I would call the hotel and arrange for one of their drivers to pick me up at the airport in lieu of the shuttle because of the extra time we spent waiting at the airport for the bus to fill, then leaving early on our departure day so we could stop and pick up others on our way to the airport. The drive from the airport was a good chance to see small towns, some agriculture, lots of ocean, cliffs, sandy beaches.... Did I mention the coffee? Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee, freshly ground with cream (rum cream if you wish) what a wonderful way to start the day. Restaurants we enjoyed: GAO Cafe for breakfast, Three Dives for curried goat, Sweet Spice in Negril for fried chicken with BBQ sauce and fish soup, Rick's Cafe at sunset with a couple of dirty bananas.... Plus, Norma's at the Sea Splash for eggs benedict or dinner.

This hotel is well located on the pristine 7-mile beach of Negril. The Hotel Manager was awesome! She knew all the ins and outs of the city and its attractions. Calm hotel without a super party atmosphere (although you only need to head a few feet down the beach to find a party in progress). Would recommend to anyone headed to Negril for the first time. Rooms are cleaned well. The beds are large, but take up most of the space in the smaller rooms. Get a bigger room if you are at all inclined to want some extra space.

Good location. The staff was very nice. Hotel was right on the beach.

Started off in the wrong room, but did get switched to our appropriate room once we complained in the morning. No one every swept the floor, so we often walked around in sand. Quiet in general which was perfect for us, but also it was the off season. Overall, we enjoyed our trip, but you get what you pay for.

Great for our needs. Bang for the buck was incredible. Make sure to get the larger 1BR Suite. They are bigger than our apt in NYC. It's nice to have a fridge in the kitchen area so we could make some of our own meals, especially breakfasts, as the service is abysmally slow island wide. I don't want to wait 40 minutes for eggs and toast. I get that this is Jamaica and understand that not everything is perfect and the locals operate on island time. Next time down I'd have no problem staying here again.

This small hotel is a real find! Beautiful landscaping with loads of tropical atmosphere. Perfect location in the center of Negril 7-Mile Beach. Small and intimate but with all the pluses - nice pool, great beach side bar, one of the best restaurants in Jamaica - Norma's. We could relax at the pool / beach or walk to other great bars / restaurants along the beach. Even at night felt safe. First time in Jamaica and we will return to the Sea Splash. Great romantic place too! Think the reg rooms may be small - we had a junior suite; perfect size. Fridge in the room a plus. Room not luxurious but clean and housekeeping great. Staff was friendly and helpful especially the bar. The place does need a little paint (in the rooms and outside) and outside sprucing up as well, some minor repairs (i.e ac unit covers, window boxes) and a little garden sprucing up but nothing to take away from this wonderful hotel...a few touches to upgrade and this little find would really be at the level of true luxury.

I booked this last minute to try something different(not all-inclusive and traveling alone). If you like large resorts full of tourists, this is not for you. I've traveled quite a bit and I liked this better than all inclusive because I was able to experience excellent local places to eat and drink and it was very quiet and laid back. Norma's food was awesome and Ossies jerked chicken in a shack across the street was great too. Book larger than a standard room (unless you are traveling by yourself). If you want to experience Negril this is the way to do it. I never have been too keen on the Jamaica all inclusives because the local food is great and all inclusives are crammed with people and mostly bad food. The locals will be peddling stuff off of the all inclusive resorts and some people are annoyed by that, so it really depends on your travel style. I thought the grounds were lush and tropical and the staff was very friendly here. Only about 20 rooms so you almost get to know all of the guests and staff during your stay. I will come back to Sea Splash soon.
