Historical Traveler Reviews Seasplash Negril
Were coming back
Were an English family and weve been to seasplash twice before the last time was two years ago, it was great fun , the staff were wonderful we enjoyed it there so much that were now getting withdrawral symtoms so we are booked to go back in July. I hope its the same relaxing and beautiful place, Im sure it is
Just got back from Seasplash.....
My niece and I stayed at the Seasplash resort for the past week. We had a big room with a mini-fridge and a dressing room off of the bathroom area. It was comfortable and cool. We were impressed with the cable tv service, which had at least 3 premium stations.
We can not say enough nice things about the head chef at Norma's restaurant, Rohan. He always made us feel welcome and well taken care of. Though the food was tasty, it was a bit pricey and the drinks didn't have much alcohol in them. Make sure to walk down the beach and explore other meal options. We found a great 2-for-1 lobster restaurant where we enjoyed an excellent dinner and drinks for $30 for the both of us!
We highly recommend the Dunns River Falls Tour in Ochos Rios. Although it was a three-hour drive from Negril, it didn't seem that long because we had a lively and informative tour guide. Our tour also included several shopping opportunities at duty-free shops, lunch at a very nice Jamaican restaurant, admission to the Falls and a guided tour climb up the Falls. Don't book any tours through the hotel office; always book with an excursion company such as Jamaica Tours. Our Dunns River Fall Tour package was $69 with Jamaica Tours, whereas a trip to Mayfield Falls (a similar attraction about an hour away from Negril) would have cost us $80 (cash only) with the hotel driver, not including lunch, admission to the Falls, or shopping opportunities.
The perfect spot...fun, warm and cozy
Seasplash resort was an execellent place to stay. Very friendly staff. The staff was definitely there to make your stay in Jamaica "No problem!" Natasha at the bar is great!!! The resort couldn't be located at a more perfect spot on the beach. Room 24 is where we stayed.... 10 steps to the white sand!!!! Don't worry about being so close to the beach, security is GREAT also! I've been to Jamaica several times and this spot was the most relaxing!! Comes highly recommended. One thing that I especially liked about SeaSplash is that they allowed my long time friend who is a "Jamaican Resident" to visit me on their property. Some places that I have stayed in the past do not allow that. Thank you Sea Splash for a great vacation!!!!
Love it!!!!!!! Great location and friendly staff. Stayed there in April 2002 and in August 2003. Huge rooms with kitchenette. Perfect when a local cooks for you. Highly recommended.
Great Value - Beautiful Place!
When we first got to the Seasplash we were a little worried. Our room was dark, a little damp smelling and a bit rundown. The Junior suite was a decent size - a sitting room when you entered the french doors to the room. There was a King size bed , dresser, night stands, refrigerator and big window. The bathroom had a dressing room off of it which was very nice. It was all very clean but a little rundown - not bad just a little peeling paint here and there, some marks on the linoleum floor - little things. We were here to get married on the beach that evening. We changed and went out of the room. If you visited the hotel website and wondered why there are no photos of the hotel itself, it's because it's basically covered in flowering plants and palms! each room has it's own little patio or balcony that is secluded because of the lush gardens! When we left our room there is a little path through bushes to a bigger path that leads to the pool area, bar, resturant, beach. The rooms are safely tucked between the hotel lobby and the restaurant - we felt nicely secluded somehow... Our walk to the pool was through a "jungle like" area! (remember - I'm from PA forests) There were palms and hibiscus and flowereing vines and all sorts of tropical plants. BEAUTIFUL! The pool area was extremely well kept and clean! It was beautifully landscaped - many shady spots to cool off.
The outdoor bar is right off of the pool area - nice to have a "Dirty Banana" while relaxing! You can put all food and drinks on your hotel room tab - very convenient! The restaurant is RIGHT ON THE BEACH! a few yards from the water! It is well kept - nicely decorated, and the food is one of the top three we found in Negril! The beach is about in the center of a beautiful 7 Mile Beach. The water is warm and clear - no rocks or sea slime in it! There are plenty of restaurants to choose from nearby - we tried to eat somewhere different each meal. To the beach for an hour or two after lunch at the hotel restaurant. Then to the room again to get ready to get married!!! When we went back to the room it smelled much better - we had opened the windows and freshened it alot! We got married on the beach at 5 that night - right at sunset.
The hotel took care of everything - flowers, champagne, wedding cake, minister - even photos included in the best price compared to other hotels. After we were married barefoot on the beach we had a delicious dinner - lobster nuggets in a creamy sauce, roasted potaotes, delicous green beans and carrots, salad, garlic bread, too much food to finish.
Then we had wedding cake (which they kept just for us whenever we wanted). Overall this place was great value for the price - call the hotel 1800 number directly - when i asked the room price he bartered with me! It was smaller and not so commercial - quieter and not so American. Just what we wanted. There were mosquitos in the bedroom - after the first night i complained and they gave us a sweet smelling heat machine thing - no sound not really any smell either. It worked okay - but i'd take a citronella candle for the room. There weren't alot - just one or two annoying mosquitos!! Don't take the hotel driver to restaurants or sights - taxis are half the price if you make an offer they'll take it! Restaurants? Skip Rick's on the cliffs - a college bar scene - YUCK! Try Rockhouse on the cliffs for sunset dinner. Try Koyaba for dinner - beautiful and they'll send a driver to get you!! Try Cosmos (walk to it on the beach!) for lunch! Negril is a great place to stay!
This is a decent property. The grounds are not breathtaking, but nice.
The rooms vary a bit. Upstairs have cathedral ceilings, downstairs does not. The floors in our room were dirty. The furniture is typical Carribean-tired. The rest of our room was acceptable. Norma's restaurant is not gourmet by US standards but served good food at fair prices.
The Hotel Grounds are breathe taking
The hotel rooms were comfortable, large and very cozy, the hotel grounds were simply breathe taking. The level of service was excellent.Can't wait to come again !
Sea Splash is fabulous! I stayed there for a week and loved it. It's is a beautiful property and the restaurant there (Norma's) is top notch.
The staff is nice and the rooms a large and spacious. All in all a great resort.
Quiet and friendly
My wife and I had a relaxing time in this quiet and freindly hotel. The rooms are large and comfortable and the staff look after you like you were family. The beach bar is generally intimate, but a short walk up the beach in any direction and you can party-hearty. The resteraunt is good too.
A Warm and Friendly Place
When we have a special celebration, ie: high school or college graduation, we head to Seasplash. I have been 3 times with daughters and grandaughters. And additional friends of theirs! The suites are perfect for our needs and are fully equipped. When we depart from the van to the beautiful gardens, peace envelops us. The staff is warm and most welcoming - family is very important to us and to them too. The food is great and the bar a fun place to hang out. We always bring small presents, clothing and toys for the staff and their children. We all go from the ocean to the pool and back and forth. When one needs anything, it will "soon come".

It's been a couple of days since my last report but they have quite eventful. As I am determined to report the truth let me start by saying that whatever Lily claims is only part of the story. It all began when the local chemist hearing of my expertise requested my help in his laboratory. In the interest of furthering medical research I agreed to assist. It ...
Today we toured Montego Bay. We found a taxi driver and the four of us pilled in and saw parts of the city most people never see. We visited two street markets and the girls bought mango, poppies, sweat apple, star fruit, and I climbed trees for local fruit. I am too old to climb trees, ...
Got off the plane at Montego Bay. They drive on the left here, but I had a few drinks at the airport and enjoyed the drive. Our resort seems nice, but so far we've only seen the bar. But that is the second most important room! I've attached a picture of our room. Lily wants to be on top the whole week. We spent the evening at margaritaville good dancing but hip-hop and we wanted reggae or calypso. Maybe ...
... who is super cool (Clyde) and asked him about some local spots. He mentioned that he was celebrating his 20th anniversary this year. That's something truly special. After Clyde left, Junior was our man and kept the beer flowing. The sports bar had liquors cut off after 11pm but the beer and wine kept flowing. We had a great night playing pool, drinking and getting to know a couple bartenders. More to come ...
... wait to leave my everyday life and get completely lost in the unknown territory
of a Caribbean island while celebrating the beginning of a new life for two
people I care about.
Upon arrival, my party and I boarded a shuttle bus to take us to the hotel. Having only been to
one other tropical island in my lifetime, I was shocked by the town we drove
through. I knew that the people lived well below my idea of a life, but could
this be the same ...
