Although I have been a timeshare owner at Sea Garden for 30 years, we last visited the resort 10 years ago.
I'm happy to report that little has changed.
Sea Garden is the older, more modest part of the Mayan property. The units are simple, clean, and comfortable. For those who are looking for luxury hotel accomodation...this is not for you!
The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Others have commented on the friendliness of staff and that is not an exaggeration.
The fact that the resort is remote from the action of the Golden Zone and other high density properties is a huge plus for us. Lots of unoccupied beach. A short walk to Mr Lionso's for the best food around. And only a 10 peso bus ride to anywhere downtown (if you take the newer bus)
Can't comment on the food on site. Menu didn't look very creative so we didn't bother. Bought breakfast supplies at a grocery store, although the onsite store is quite well stocked.
Downside to most resorts is the timeshare sales pressure. It was pretty full-on as we checked in. Reluctantly agreed to go to only a short owner info update (no breakfast, etc.) I admit that the session was informative and low pressure to upgrade. (In the end we decided that upgrading wasn't in our best interest at this time)
In the end, it was a quiet, relaxing vacation. Just what was needed to break up this cold North American winter! Resort seemed nearly deserted. Maybe things are different during high-season weeks?
Recommend eating at Mr Lionso's down the beach at Playa Bruja. Also at Pancho's in the Golden Zone.
Must activity: A day (or evening) of sailing on Mi Casa with Captain Eduardo
Biggest surprise: the massive flock of black birds that swarm to the resort every day at sun set, to roost.
