We stayed at the Seaside Cabanas for 4 nights in December. The location is fantastic, right by the Water Taxi Terminal to Belize City and San Pedro.
The property itself is clean and picturesque. I stayed in Cabana #2. We had a queen sized bed with 2 windows, a TV with cable and premium movie channels, a small fridge with a bottle of free water. The room comes with an AC and intermittent hot water. Of the many showers I took, I think I only really had 1 warm shower. The water in the sink however was warm to hot. This is my one gripe about the property; otherwise, I would have rated it excellent.
While we were there, there was a cold front (temperatures in the 60's, which is not very common) so we did not need the AC very much. Do, however, anticipate that without the AC, conditions in the room can get a bit humid due to the tropical climate.
Seaside is only 1 of 2 properties with a pool but due to the slightly colder climate, I did not use the pool. As for the rooms, I would not recommend cabanas 3 and 4 as they only have 1 small window, making the rooms very dark.
Otherwise the property was great and I would return. It was close to several great places to eat. We went to Rose's grill a few times, Amory’s, Chan's takeout, a small Mexican eatery on the main strip which had great breakfast and as a treat on the last day we went to Habanero's. There is also a laundry mat not far from the hotel.
One last suggestion, do shop around for your activities. I was very surprised to find out that tour groups will not go out to Hol Chan or other places unless they have a minimum of 4 people. If you have a party of 4, you should be all set.
