Property very nice and well maintained, staff - especially trolley drivers, are super. Our room was comfy and clean. A large group of late arrivals one eve were excessively noisy after 10 pm (partying and screaming and laughing it up outside our unit) - and one day we had loud rude people talking on speaker on their cellphones at the beach but we moved away from them - otherwise it was a fabulous stay. We went in the off season and liked the relaxed and less busy atmosphere. Vegan tacos and tropical drinks at Sunset Beach were a highlight every beach day!!

We enjoyed the solitude of the bayside rooms. Its a large resort son getting around was difficult until we rented bicycles. Golf carts are available, but need to be booked early, and they are costly.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
my stay was for 3 days. The first inconvenience was that from the check-in I asked for a crib for my baby and it never arrived, even though I called 2 more times to ask for it, I ended up buying one at Walmart. my other drawback is that the cleaning is very bad, everything was dirty and full of dust, the bathroom was full of mold, the kitchen utensils super dirty. I do not recommend it and I do not plan to return. but in general the island is very beautiful.

The resort itself was gorgeous. The main pool area had lots of seating and beautiful views, and the beach access was so easy with the attendants providing umbrellas and towels as requested. My main complaint is not with South Seas Resort, but with Expedia. We knew when booking that we would be at the "Bayside Villa", however, from the pictures and information provided on Expedia, our assumption was that we would be near the main resort area with the beautiful pools. In reality, we were 1.5 miles away. It took us a good day to figure out how to really enjoy the resort. There are two companies within ~1/4 mile that you are able to rent golf carts from.. do it! It made our trip (and transport to the beach & pool) so much more enjoyable. Also note when everything is in season, apparently August is off season so a lot of the shops and restaurants closed before 6pm. No matter what, all restaurants and bars close at 10pm due to noise restrictions on the island, so just plan accordingly! Knowing what I know now, I would definitely go back and stay in the Bayside Villas. Just book through this site with a grain of salt, and do your research into which villa you are booking before clicking submit.
