My wife and I just came back from vacationing here. A friend of mine gave me a free week accommodations because his Time Share was going to expire and he couldn't use it. The hotel is centrally located, but it need remodeling. There was no microwave in the room. The staff was very nice. The food at their restaurant was...

The Sea Garden remains a favorite of many vacation venues. The staff is always welcoming, personable, professional, and prompt. The facilities are clean, comfortable, and open. The on-the-beach location is perfect.

when they offer to give you a free breakfast and a 60 minute presentation about the resort, RUN! They lie through their teeth. 5 hours of saying no and 5 people trying to get money from you. If you "buy" you don't even own anything.

We were supposed to be at the Grand Mayan but there was no vacances so they placed us at the Sea Garden. I was pleasantly surprised that I preferred it! It is a simple hotel with the basic amenities but it is on the beach. The other hotels are far from the beach. The staff is very friendly and it...

The warm friendly staff plus the great food made this place awesome..Of course the ocean view was out standing..The sunsets beautiful... The room furniture needed to be updated and there was no balcony but you just opened the sliding glass door and your living room gave you all the comforts of a balcony. Again outstanding service.I would stay here again...

We love staying at the Sea Garden and walking for hours along the beach. It is just the perfect size and place close to the Marina restaurants, 5 minutes and you can jump on the bus in no time for PV.

The Sea Garden resort, part of the Vidanta family of properties, is amazing. Although a short walk on the beach from the rest of the Vidanta properties, you can visit the numerous restaurants, bars, shops, spas, etc. and charge everything to your Sea Garden room. Wonderful pool right next to the beach, very convenient to taxi stand if you want...

North Carolina

Reviews of the Sea Garden seem to be all over the map!! You wouldn't even suppose they were speaking about the same property! One week a guest gives a 5-star rating, with positive comments. Within a week or 2 before or after, you'll find another guest rating it with 1-star and the distinct impression from their comments, they would have given it a -0 rating had that been an option. I also could not help noticing the "socialmediamanager"(?) seldom responded to the most negative reviews/comments and even when replying to the more favorable reviews, seldom addressed the specific concerns or issues the guests raised! Overall, I found his/her responses about as helpful as a load of bricks on a sore toe!! Would really like to know if previous/recent past guests' concerns/complaints/problems/issues have been/will ever be remedied. If so, in what way? For example, is true the only means by which one is given a decent room is by agreeing to go on a T/S presentation? Is the front-desk staff friendly and helpful or not? Are rude staff members taken to task for their behavior towards their guests? Is wifi now available at no cost or @ less than $25.00 US per day? Are the rooms clean and modernized or dirty and dated? I realize the reviews are all subjective in nature, but there are some minimum standards common across the industry, aren't there? Assuming anyone does actually offer a an explanation of sorts or not, I personally am locked into a visit here early next Spring willy-nilly, but I would however, like to forewarn my potential traveling companions what to expect! Thanks :)
