“I will always go back!”
This is the 16th time I have stayed at the Silver Seas. There is always some small problems with things in the room, but it is also not listed as a 5 star. The rooms are always clean and the staff is always friendly. All the rooms overlook the ocean and there is a reef within swimming diatance - if you are a good swimmer. If you want a big crowd this is not the place for you. But if you want to snorkel, sit on your baclony relax, try a different resturant every night within walking distance, truly meet the Jamaicians, I recommend the Silver Seas.
“Can't wait to go back!”
Our experience at Silver Seas was wonderful. It was not a 5 star hotel but we did not book a 5 star. We wanted the real Jamaica and this was the perfect place-clean and friendly-the staff was great. We loved walking to the local shops and the market place and meeting Jamaicans from all walks of life. This was our 3rd visit to Jamaica and we plan to return to Silver Sea next year. We stayed in an ocean front room (all rooms at Silver Seas are ocean front) with amazing views-the blue Caribbean in the front and the mountains in the back. . The food at the hotel was good but even better was the tiny Jamaican restaurant hidden away across the street-ackee, rice and peas, peanut porridge, Jamaican fruits. Cannot wait to go back!
“Low key, old jamaica”
this hotel was built in 1948& 1953 as such it is reminiscent of a bygone era, this is NOT a luxury hotel. take your own towel since they pick up the used ones in the morning and return them clean in the evening. the staff is nice and responsive to your needs. it is low key. if you just want to relax with no pressure to "have fun" this is a good place. though fun is always available. Enjoy
“3rd time look foward to 4th”
it's an old art deco in need of some work but it's got great people, good location & an outstanding snorkeling reef 50 yds out. i will be back
excellent view of the ocean and with the private beach and balcony view is excellent.
The staff was priceless, always willing to go the extra mile for us. Always had a smile, and desire to help. The hotel is clean, the rooms large, the view awesome. The american who owns it needs to reinvest into it. The beds, pillows, and towels need updated. A little paint would be good too. Not a good place if you go to hang out in your room. If you want a clean bed, a warm shower and ac to sleep with before the next adventure this is it. I will stay here again!
“This was a great place to stay. The hotel staff looked after me like I was their own daughter!”
I was scared at first to be traveling alone to a different country, but the hotel staff really kept a close watch on me and made my safty their priority. Helpful tips: Don't exchange any more than 40 American dollars to Jamaican currancy! Everyone wants American money there. Also, when going to he hotel from the airport, DO NOT take a taxi! Taxis cost 100 US dollars! Take a tour bus for only 20 US dollars!
“Can't wait to go back”
Good hotel for the price of US motel! Do not expect fancy resort, but you will get clean, nice room, direct at ocean, viewing palm trees and warm, peaceful water. Two weeks we stayed was two short, but that is life ....
“The best kept secret in Jamaica”
I would recommend this hotel
I loved my stay in Jamaica. The views from the hotel are breath taking. The hotel staff is great. They are all just really sweet people. The upper level rooms are the ones to stay in. For they have huge stone balconies over looking the sea and all the reefs. I recommend bringing snorkel gear you can swim right out from the hotel. The best time to go is in the early morning when its still quiet, later in the day there are a lot of boats and jet skis buzzing around. There not really a beach, but there is still a small area to just lye around. The Dunn River Falls are a must do, especially on a hot day. You start down on the beach and climb up tons of waterfalls untill you reach to top. You can go with a guided group or just take a taxi. This hotel is not gated off like the other all-inclusive hotels in the area. It lets you be right in Jamaica. Caution, for first timers. The hotel is one block from the main street and everything is within walking distance. There is a farmers market and hundreds of shops and vendors. Make sure to know the currency before you go. Jamaican food is awesome! Their Jerk pork and chicken are a must try. I ate anything and everything they had. There are plenty of small resturants with great food all within a few blocks and if you get the urge for a greasy burger there is a burger king down the street. I definitely would like to go back again.
