“Hassle to book, but ok place to stay”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

The mid-range room I got was quite nice, with a couple of fans, and a nice partial sea view from the balcony. The bathroom was generally ok, although the toilet was squeezed into a space too small, so it was a bit awkward for people larger than stick figures. Booking was a real hassle. I was told that the only way to confirm a booking was to download a booking form (inc credit card info – they charged my card in full before I arrived), complete it by hand, then scan and email it back (or fax!). They seem never to have heard of paypal or online forms…very archaic and un-user friendly. In the end I managed to get them to accept my booking by just emailing my c/c details.

We came from Honduras and had no booking. Walked up to this place and they were able to accommodate us right away. Very helpful staff, and great central location with the restaurant "De Tatch" right next door. Granted we had no reservation so choices were limited, but I would definitely recommend a room that is open to the breeze. Ours was on the leeward side of the building and got a little warm. Luckily there were plenty of fans to keep the air moving. If you're looking to spend a little, and be in the same spot on the beach as places costing 3x as much, Seaspray is definitely worth it.

Room Tip: You really don't need A/C if you get a room close to the beach and open to the breeze

If your looking for a great beach, great restaurants,(Detached) and great bars (tipsy Tuna and Barefoot) then you are at the right place. We stayed in the Cabana and an upstairs room right on the beach. The staff was very friendly and took care of all your needs. Placencia was a great beach town if you are looking to unwind. Prices were very affordable and I would definitely go back. Thank you Seaspray for a wonderful three days. PS: Go to Detached and Omars for some fabulous island cusine.

Room Tip: cabana room and room 21 were excellent

The rooms were always clean and they decor fit the beach settings perfectly. They always put fresh flowers on the bedroom and in the bathroom. The rooms are literally on the beach. There's a little restaurant a 20 feet from the rooms and I highly recommend the stuffed Jack.

The only thing that happened that I wasn't too pleased with was the fact that no one was there when we arrived for check in at 8pm. We had called ahead of time to let them know what time we'd be arriving and they told us someone would be
there. Unfortunately no where else was opened in the whole town. But miraculously we found one room that was opened and it hadn't been cleaned. I was a little worried someone was still staying in the room but just walked out to the beach or something so it was difficult to sleep worrying that someone very angry might come walking in any second. The staff apologized profusely in the morning and didn't charge for that night. They made up for it 10 times with the amazing service and the value we got for this amazing piece of paradise.

Also, DO NOT walk down the beach at night. We were chased by ferocious dogs. Luckily, we jumped in the ocean (fully clothes) and they didn't follow. When we got to the hotel, the machete toting hotel guard told us there were trained attack dogs that attacked a few tourists and even killed someone!

We stayed at the seaspray for 2 nights. It was very clean and serviceable. The price was incredible. We stayed another few nights at Roberts Grove and I would advise not to waste your money. We enjoyed the seaspray much more. It is located right on the beach next to the tipsy tuna. Very conveniently located and the Wi-Fi works better than in our house. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would defiantly stay there again! The only improvement was that our fridge did not work but in the grand scheme of things it was nothing...

We spent four nights in two rooms. Our daughters kept the AC cranking while my wife and I enjoyed the ocean breezes. We sat and read on the covered porch, lounged in the hammocks and enjoyed several of the restaurants that were within easy walking distance. As mentioned by others it is an older Hotel but very clean and we did have hot showers as well as AC. We grabbed a case of beer at a local market and stuck it in the fridge. The small kitchenette was well stocked and we loved the coffee shop just a couple minute walk away. There was no pool but the ocean was right there.
