The SeaDrift was a perfect spot to relax and enjoy family time. The pool was clean and just across from the beach which was nice. I enjoyed the maid service every day and thought the service was wonderful. Everyone was very nice and the room was spotlessly clean. We would definitely stay there again.

Unfortunately, it apparently was stained, and we rewashed it after it was brought to the attention of the housekeeper. I do apologize that she... More

The pool is small, but adequate. There are chairs, lounges, and umbrellas. It is immaculately clean. Rooms are adequate...our air conditioner was in the bathroom, so the door must be kept open and shades drawn to keep it comfortable in 90+ hot weather. Chilly to use the bathroom. Water pressureand temperature for shower and sink was fine. Towels were coarse... More
