My husband and I spent last week at the fabulous Seabreeze Resort. I doubt my review will do justice to the incredible time we had, but i'll try! Firstly, we chose sea breeze based on the trip advisor reviews on this page, and also from Wendy (one of the owners) extremely helpful and prompt response to any questions I had sent her. After experiencing the resort and service there ourselves, I can say that the reviews are spot on! it really is THAT good!
The drivers to greet you at the airport are friendly and make you feel at home the instant you arrive. Not having to "check in" once you get to the resort is great, leaving guests to start their 'unwinding asap!
The grounds are immaculate, lush with tropical landscaping. All ocean/reef VIEW rooms maintain a sense of privacy whilst opening out onto the pool/ocean side. I personally think there didn't seem to be much difference between Ocean or Reef view rooms, and if anything, wouldn't pick room one (ocean view) as it's right next to the reception/entrance.
The Ocean FRONT rooms are flush with the cliff face so you literally are ocean front. in most other resorts you can be quite disadvantaged if you don't get an ocean front room, but in my opinion those of us in ocean/reef view still got to enjoy views out to the sea so it wasn't a big deal at all.
The rooms are tastefully done, with every comfort you could want. There is no TV and i was pleasantly surprised to see what a positive effect this had on our experience. It was absolute bliss to only hear the ocean as background noise for 7 days! The resort is well stocked with books, magazines and games if you forget your own.
What we really loved was the intimate and small feel of the whole place. You didn't have to get up at the crack of dawn to reserve your place by the pool or on the beach. there was room for everyone, without it seeming crowded. Again, something that had a very positive effect on our experience!
Right from the minute you arrive, you feel welcomed by the staff and they make it clear that nothing is a problem if it'll make your stay more comfortable. We are vegetarians and the chef was very accommodating to our requests. The restaurant is completely separate to where the accommodation is (good to maintain that sense of privacy and quiet around the rooms/pool) The only thing we would have liked to see as regular items on the menu would be a few simple samoan dishes! we enjoyed samoan cuisine at other resorts and it was a shame to only get to enjoy it on seabreeze's friday fiafia night when the chef does such an incredible job at it. *Highly recommend ordering the palusami on fiafia night, it is divine! *
We really enjoyed the quiet, peacefulness of the resort after having only experienced bigger, busier ones. You really feel 'disconnected' from all the rush of regular life, and it doesn't take long to slow down and just enjoy sleeping, reading, swimming and eating all day. Lots of great activities on site (kayaking/snorkeling/walks) and close by. We hired a car and enjoyed driving out around the island too. You hire a car at the resort, saving you any hassle. We had an unforgettable time at Seabreeze. It wasn't just the gorgeous grounds and ocean site that made our trip so memorable, but also the genuine and friendly service you receive. A truly fabulous place to stay and one that you leave knowing you will return to at some point!
