Its was a very nice weekend. Visited for a wedding and had a great time. However when wedding events were not happening I found the resort very average. Nothing special, but nothing about the trip was bad. Just kinda average. We visited as a couple; and unfortunately a lot of kids were there. Family of our brought their children and seemed to have a very good time. Perhaps with kids, it would be worth trying again. But till then it wasn't for us. Pool was busy with noisy kids, and the pool bar was understaffed. Neither was a deal killer. 3/5 for couples looking for a romantic getaway. 4 or 5 for a family weekend (though it might get expensive with the whole family).

Dear Will, It was a pleasure to host you, and we were honored to be a part of the wedding you were attending. Thank you for being our guest and sharing your feedback! We pride ourselves on offering fun activities for all ages, and we are pleased that you got to spend some time relaxing by the pool. We’re lucky to welcome many families with children, and we also have some great options for couples looking for some alone time, such as a kayaking tour, golf, Jet Skiing or a good tennis match. Come back again and we’re sure you’ll be impressed! Best regards, South Seas Island Resort

The room was a little less than spectacular and the porches are all screened in so you can't take sunset pictures from your balcony. However the room was clean and the bed comfortable. Also the harbour side grill was the worst dining experience ever especiallyfor breakfast, the server brought one cup of coffee and I had to ask 3x for water and 3 separate people just get a straw. For 60 bucks for breakfast the service should be outstanding, but the worst I've ever experienced. The Starbucks that's associated with the resort has the most amazing service, kind courteous and willing to chat with local ideas for dinner and where everything was located. Overall a decent weekend for an anniversary get away.

I am absolutely in love with this place. The golf course is flat out gorgeous. Perfect beaches. The only negitive thing is when we arrived the elevator wasn't working and we had to carry our luggage up 3 flights of stairs. But other than that perfection!!!

My wife and I had a spectacular week here. The staff was top notch. From check in, to the beach and back everyone working had a smile on their face and helped out. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. The pools were convenient and clean. Secluded but not too secluded. Family friendly but still cozy. I loved this place.

All the reviews that I have read tell me that your property is fantastic with children. I would Love nothing more than to learn about your property but every time I go to your website and the pop up for 10% off keeps me from learning anything further. I would seriously suggest that you consider talking to your web developer about your website as soon as possible the pop-up makes it impossible to view your website via a mobile device. I apologize to put a false review on Google but I have no other way to contact you via your website as I cannot navigate your site at all. I hope this is something that you're able to resolve in the future.

Remote, at tip of island. Restaurants do not take reservations; lots of kids; long lines of unhappy kids and parents at dinner time. Understaffed bell desk. Captive market prices at restaurants and market. No nearbr supermarkets. Lovely bay and gulf beaches. Pleasant staff. Clean accommodations.

The resort is very nice and the people are very friendly. Truly a place to escape and relax. The reason I gave it a low grade is the quality of the food vs pricing and the rooms. Dining definitely needs to be analyzed by management. All six individuals at our table were disappointed I'm the quality of it. It appeared to be reheated or institution cooking. The rooms are nice but definitely showing their age and lack of cleaning/maintenance. Our room the toilet constantly ran and the shower walls had mold/mildew throughout. Others in our party complained about the age of the beds or dirty sheets, etc. This is supposed to be a high end resort but I think it needs a wake-up call from the owners to shake things up and make it a fantastic vacation getaway again.

Absolute worst experience our family has ever been involved in. The management is appalling, have continually postponed finishing our condo. Have continually lied about completion dates and we will be pressing charges very soon. Stay away from south seas if you are looking for a new place to buy property.
