“Not impressed.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2013 via mobile

The last thing I expected was to be served imitation crab while dining Oceanside. Very disappointing experience. We also seemed to catch them during shift change & had three different people wait on us. Everyone seemed to disappear so there was a wait just to order another Caribe & to get out bill. Good beachside location though!

“Sea Breeze restaurant - very dissapointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2013

I was embarrassed this week having taken two friends here for lunch. Nice beachfront setting but everything I had was disappointing - from the watery cocktail, to the main course salad (totally uninspired for a dish that was the "special" of the day) and finally the cheesecake (with a vile strawberry compote that was at the point of fermentation). My guests were too polite to say anything but I suspect they were equally unimpressed. I have honestly had better and more satisfying meals at MacDonalds!

“$200 bill for $25 worth of food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2013

Sorry, nothing good to say about the food. Starting with the bread, tasted store bought. Amuse bouche - artichoke with cream cheese. Cesar salad, 3 out of 10. Sirloin steak, 3 out of 10. Cheese plate 2 out of 10. Fruit plate, 3 of 5 were not ripe. This place and Coconut Grove are in a dead heat for worst value and most disappointing on the island.

“Sea breeze Restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2013

Good not great. We went on a Monday around 2 in the afternoon. Staff were very polite and eager to assist. The food is fine, great views of the Atlantic side of the Island. The food took what seemed awhile, but you could tell the appetizers and meals were freshly prepared and not microwave cooked. I would recommend it.

“Wast of a journey”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013

We called at Sea Breeze last week and understood that if we had lunch we would be able to use the beach chairs on the beach.

We went today, to be told that the hotel does not want their guests" to mix with people from outside. We were welcome to have lunch but could not use any of the facilities at the beach. There was an area to the side of the beach that was public, some chairs but no umbrella's, we could sit there and we could swim in the sea"!!!!!!!!

Will not be back, which is a shame because we were also going to eat at the Great House one evening during our stay.

This is the only hotel on the island that does not allow lunch or dinner guests, to use the sun beds on the beach, or to sit beside their pool.
