We were a group of six women celebrating life long friendships and birthdays. Considering that this resort is ALL couples, we stood out a bit.
We chose Seaside because of the easy access for one member of our group with vision issues. She was able to navigate the resort grounds independently which is something she is not able to do elsewhere.
The rooms are very nice (swim up suites in our case) and well serviced everyday. One issue that did not cause any problems for me, but could for others, is the lack of any bright lightening in the room. Ask for a room that has been refurbished as they are a bit brighter.
There are three swimming pools ... two on the quiet side and one activities pool. The bar in the activity pool is desperately in need of repair and updating but the area around it is a fun place to be.
Beach? What beach? The stretch of sand is long and narrow and covered with chairs and sun beds ... hundreds of them. So many that you hardly know there is a beach there. Yes, it is necessary to have all of the chairs but be aware of this if you like wide stretches of sand. It is also very rocky in the water. I love the ocean and found myself at the pool because of the water conditions.
The food is hit and miss. The Italian dining was very good with excellent service and the new evening dining at the swing bar was also very good. Believe me, it is hard to go hungry at an all-inclusive.
Now, the biggest reason to stay here .... the staff!!! The activities staff, the men and women who clean the rooms, the bartenders and servers, the hosts and hostesses in the restaurants and the groundskeepers. They make Seaside what it is!
Suggestion to guests ~~ don't forget to tip these hard working people. Yes, it is all-inclusive and it is not an inexpensive vacation, but a few dollars/pesos goes a long way for these women and men.
