Restaurant food is delicious and the service is awesome. The views are lovely. The beach resort is accessible by shuttle and is worth the ride, very beautiful. The best things are the staff and the view Everything is way overpriced, starting with the $40 a night mandatory valet parking to the $35 per person breakfast. If you don't have a car you don't have a choice, so it gets expensive. The rooms are nice but there is very low water pressure in the shower and the sink. No soundproofing so you will hear everything your neighbor's are doing (I.e. The screaming infant in the adjacent room).
The hotel has really become special ever since it was taken over by Wyndham. They did an amazing job cleaning the property up and making a top notch hotel. The staff is fantastic and the rooms are comfortable offering amazing views of the ocean. A perfect place for anyone looking for a place to escape the winter up north without having to go to Miami or Fort Lauderdale. Not a big complaint but the pool could be a little bigger. When you have some kids in there it can feel a little small.
I booked 3 nights here with my girlfriend. This hotel seemed like the best deal in the area as far as wanting an ocean view and a balcony. The fridge in the room was a great plus, we were able to buy drinks and snacks to keep in the room. The beds were comfortable, although extremely warm, just turn the thermostat way down before going to bed. The restaurants in the hotel were very good for breakfast and lunch. The night desk person was very rude. We got back to the hotel one night around 11:30pm and wanted to know if room service was still available or if any of the restaurants were still serving. We waited at the desk for a few minutes before finally calling the hotel from one of our cell phones. The night desk person came out of the back to answer the phone, which was us standing there waiting on her. She rudely told us that she had too much work to do and could not stay at the desk. I would understand going to the back room around 3-5am, but this was 11:30 at night, people were still coming and going, bars and restaurants in the area were still open. I suggest this hotel give this person work they can do while at the desk.
The room size Balcony is not really a balcony Mold in bathroom Found black hair and dirt under the bed sheets it looked like someone used the bed sheets before
You can't get any closer to the beach than this and there are restaurants within walking distance making it perfect. The only small downside is that the underside of the duvet covers are a bit slippery so they kept falling off the bed throughout the night.
The outdoor restaurant with a view of ocean while eating. Good food The room was small. The lounge chairs by the pool were wicker and very uncomfortable
The pool areas, the restaurant overlooking the beach, the beach access. The food at the restaurant was quite good.
Location was convenient, the hammocks on the beach were comfortable, the pool was crystal clean, good place to relax Parking was tight - but free - "direct view of the ocean" was not so direct - noise level from slamming doors went on into the wee hours of the morn
The first room a Euro room was Ok but not what I wanted with no view at all. The second room with a sea view overlooked the pool which was a problem from noise at times as there is a pool side bar. Many guests ignored the signs about night swimming too. Overall it is a pleasant place to stay and is right on a beautiful beach. The staff are excellent too. The internet is diabolically slow and inadequate. You will either be frustrated by it's inadequacy or end up in reception. The internet facility is also a little aggressive in blocking things you might noramlly use.
Best resort I have been to in decades. Won't need to go anywhere else when in Florida. Reasonably priced and is a true 5-star resort. Best kept secret in Fort Lauderdale region. I can't wait to go back! Shower was horrible.
The location is prime and the beach access and water front facilities are so nice. Great staff and good sized rooms. No complaints.
It was a nice hotel, very clean. The service in the dining room and outside dining area was very much on island time. If you are not on a schedule then it would be fine.
The staff, the lobby, breakfast was excellent every day and the location and parking were convenient. Staff were friendly and helpful. And honest; I left my jewelry and was called so I could retrieve it. I would recommend it and stay again if they upgrade their rooms. The room. It was dull, sheets were worn and had holes; the towels were small and very rough; there was only one lamp; bathroom was old and worn; showerhead was broken; tub didn't drain; remote for TV didn't work and there was only one chair on the terrace and we asked every day for another one. no towels at pool; pool staff not around.
Location, location, location- beautiful property directly on beach. Outdoor restaurant overlooking the ocean was beautiful. Food was okay and pricey. Room was not well cleaned. No dressing mirrors in room other than in bathroom.
we love it and we will be booking again from you thanks again
We loved the balcony and ocean view. The room was nice, comfortable, and clean. The cabanas/beach chairs were convenient.
The room was spacious & comfortable - very nice!
Immaculate grounds! Peaceful. Huge spacious rooms. Large Showers/bathrooms. 3 tv'S. Full MODern kitchen including dishwasher. Washer & Dryer. Swimming pools with surrounding Palm trees. Friendly Guests. Free Parking. Grocery Store & Walmart close by. Great hotel...Only thing we didn't like was the bedding sheets were HARD/stiff.The sheets felt like they had been bleached, and ironed stiffed.
The children loved the graduated pool with the slide. the adults loved the nearby hot tub.
How large the room actually was.....It was really good value for money.... My husband and I were very pleased with the facilities and would love to come back there again. The staff at the Concierge desk were actually much more receptive and friendlier than the front desk staff.
Accomodations were top-notch
I liked the design and overall ambiance of the room. The staff was friendly and provided great customer service. We had to call maintenance to adjust the air conditioning because only the fan was blowing. Also, one of the toilets clogged and overflew.
almost everything the missing of the wifi
Fantastic room, clean, big with a very well equiped kitchinette They are absolutely tough on late checkouts. Despite being with low occupation on a week day, they'd charge $ 35 per hour for late checkout after 10 AM - a very unpleasant tough position by management, with no exceptions.
Very nice and clean room with good service.
location was good relative to activities. covered parking gargage. staff was very cordial, friendly, well trained. ease of getting around the hotel grounds, garage, etc. furnishings were adequate, as were kitchen items. the lighting in our room was terrible. we thought of opening the refrigerator door for more light. we thought lights in Europe were weak until we were in this room. also, the light in the bathroom always started the exhaust fan which sounded like an airplane overhead.
Liked everything about this place. Great location, friendly people, clean facilities. Great view from room. I asked for a decent view when I arrived and it was accommodated. They have BBQ grills for the guest to use. I was able to put stuff on the grill and swim while I waited on food to get done. Didn't have to buy any dishes. They have plates, cups, forks, spoons, knifes, pots, pans, bowls, grill tongs, they thought of everything! I'll definitely stay here again. Also, I never write reviews but i felt this was worth the time. No one came and cleaned my room everyday but I'm also an adult, so I know how to maintain livable conditions. Also they have everything you would need to clean up after yourself in the rooms. Really enjoyed my stay.
The staff were really excellent, always friendly and genuinely pleased to help. They made it a pleasure stay at the Santa Barbara. The facilities actually at the Santa Barbara are quite limited. However, this is made clear beforehand and, what there is, is good quality. Anything else is readily available at sister resorts or in the local area.
Clean comfortable and quiet. Rooms well maintained and current. Close to beach and lots of stuff to do, land and sea. On site food snack bar was limited, but sister Wyndham resort across the street has a better food vendor and a full bar.
the 1 bedroom condo was so big and comfortable. the corner room had an amazing balcony. this is a fabulous resort. it would be nice to have a bigger bathroom
We enjoyed the two-bedroom condo, next to the beach. Would have like to have a safe box in the condo. And chairs available on the beach.
The staff, especially the front desk staff were very nice and helpful. The rooms wer spacious and beautiful.
Nice property in a good location with excellent staff at a very reasonable price! I would definitely stay there again. Would be great for extended stays due to full kitchen and dining table in the room.
Very nice unit!
Excellent staff. Very well managed exterior and interior. Lighting in the rooms. Not enough.
It was by the beach. Thats it. Everything. This is a TIMESHARE. NOT HOTEL. Do not be tricked, they do not clean your room or give you any hotel services. Complete scam. Overpriced, old, under staffed, made several charges to our credit card that where not authorized and we are STILL trying get a refund. Customer service is absolutely clueless and helpless, Wyndham makes sure that you get so exhausted being transferred from agent to agent and on hold that you give up getting ANY refund IF you can get any.
Priivacy. One block away from the oean side beach.
Close to the beach. 2 bedroom provided plenty of space for a family of four. The hotel did not have our reservation. It took over an hour to find us a room after traveling from Ohio to Florida with a crying 2 year old. They also wanted us to move during our stay.
The beach was located right across the street. Short 5 min. walk from the hotel. When I booked the room, I requested a King bed in the master bedroom and a queen in the guest bedroom. Two couples. When we checked in, the staff did not tell us anything different. When we got to our room, the second bedroom had two twin beds. Had to call the front desk, of course they didn't have another room ready. Had to wait about 2 hours to switch rooms. It was not convenient.
Staff friendliness and it closeness to the beach. Room was rather dated and did not receive a daily visit from a cleaning maid.
the location on the beach check out too early
The room had a nice open concept, but are in need of some upgrading. The floors are a mess, and the carpet in bedrooms has seen better days. A little too far away from restaurants and shops.
Loved the in-room laundry facilities! The suite was not clean; seriously, if they're trying to 'sell' time shares, there's two solid rules in real estate: location and cleanliness. Sea Gardens misses both.
Value/size of room for price paid was excellent Having to cross a busy street to reach the beach was difficult at times.
