I just came back from Jamaica and I stayed at Silver Seas with my husband. Let's be honest this hotel is older and is in need of some much needed TLC. I'm unsure why others have bashed this hotel when you can clearly look at the rating that this hotel has received. This is not going to be a 2 star hotel like you will see overseas....its just not. The decoration, furniture and room accessories are older but that's only important if you plan on spending a large amount of time in the room. We partied, spend long nights on the beach, shopped, went sightseeing, partied some more and had a ball! Silver Seas provided exactly what we needed...a warm shower and a bed to crash on when we got back from partying at a great price. The view from our room was breathtaking and it was nice to wake up to the sound of the ocean every morning. The rooms are large and at the price its actually a steal. At an all inclusive resort the rooms are smaller and the price is more. Venture out....walk out to the market and buy a cold jelly or sugar cane, have a Guiness or Dragon Stout at the bar, get a manicure/pedicure, have breakfast at MOMS and lunch at World of Fish and in the evening find a party to go to!!!!!
The women from housekeeping were the friendliest and most humble women I've ever met especially Benneth. They worked harder than any housekeeper that I've seen here overseas. Its obvious that this hotel needs a bigger budget to exceed everyone's expectations. For example take notice of what they dispense their cleaning supplies in and the rags and towels for the rooms. I have extremely sensitive skin so I always bring my own towels, soap and sheets so not having enough towels in the room was not an issue for me.
We never once felt unsafe while we stayed at Silver Seas. It is located on a very busy street and had guards at the entrance every morning and every night. Our suitcases were there more than we were and there was nothing missing from our room or suitcase. My suggestion for traveling somewhere unknown is........ travel light!!!! We only brought our cellphones that doubles as our camera. We kept our passports in our suitcase and we didn't flash any foreign money. We didn't bring a camera, jewelry (except our wedding bands), laptop, IPAD, IPOD...nothing of value. After all you're on vacation!!! Live it up and ENJOY!
