“We love the Sea Dip, We will keep coming back!”
Reviewed 30 July 2008

We love the Sea Dip!
We've been there twice and are going again in a week, I CAN'T WAIT! The value is incredible!
The outdoor pool was just remodelled, and I'm excited to see what it's like. I've seen pictures and it looks great!
In response to other (negative) reviews - Most of the Condos are privately owned so the decor, cleanliness and style is really up to the owner, if you think your room is outdated or you just don't like it - ask for a different one. All Condos in all resorts all over florida have Palmetto bugs (they look like roaches) again, it's Florida. I've come to expect it.
The Sea Dip is for families, couples and it is a private little place. Mostly quiet and very safe. There is a security guard and the place is gated, so no unwelcome outsiders! All the locals that live there or own are friendly and the staff is very helpful and eager to please.
We love how equipped the condos with kitchens are! There really is everything you could possibly need in them. There are very inexpensive laundry facilities, vending machines and the office has plenty of info for out of towners looking for things to do.
The indoor pool is very exciting! It has beautiful murals of Ocean life painted on the walls. Kids love it! We take a dip each evening, it's always refreshing after being out in the sun for the whole day.
I would recommend this Resort to others! I had an absolute blast each time I went. Would love to see the restaurant open up again!

The rooms are small, even the PHs, But we were there for the beach, so it was suitable. Housekeeping is terrible though! they made the bed the first day only! None after that - maybe cause I made it myself the second day, the rest of the week they didnt touch it even when I left it unmade! No change of sheets only towels (which I had to ask for) and garbage removal. Even with this though, We would definitely stay again - the rates are good, the rooms are standard but right on the ocean beautiful pools (2) My biggest concern is always whether I feel safe in a hotel and I did here, so definitely will rebook - preferably not during a busy event month. I go to the beach for rest and relaxation and there were SO MANY kids this time of year. but definitely it was a great place to stay (no restaurants close - I dont know where that person said across the street!) you have to drive.

spent the long weekend at the sea dip
Our room was newly remodeled and pleasant... some rooms are old with dirty carpet so make sure you ask for one with tile!
out door pool was just re-opened after remodeling and the location is very good , right on the beach 2 miles south of boardwalk.
good value for the price

We LOVED the Dip! We stayed 3 days and it was wonderful! We originally had the ultra deluxe suite but found it wasnt what we wanted (ie: no real good sea view) and switched rooms on the second night without any hassle to a balcony suite with a sea view. AWESOME! Everything is well lit, and yes, it is away from the hub-bub so there was no issue with party people, etc. There is an fenced outdoor pool with a shallow kiddie pool and fresh water outdoor shower on the deck plus an indoor pool with beautiful sea creature murals as well. I did not see any bugs at all as noted by other people who have commented. Both our suites were immaculate, including the beds (which appeared almost new). We found leaving the balcony doors open to the ocean beeze left our suite drenched in condensation where ever there was hard surfaces including the floor tiles in the kitchenette area (be careful!) . The airconditioning functionned extremely well when we needed it and the balcony had 2 chairs plus a tiny table for cups. The beach is accessable via locked gate which is opened by your room key only; as was the pool enclosure. Bonus: the beach gate has a tiny light by the locks for people who frequent the beach by night. FYI: elevators are extremely slow in the southside building. Beach ramp access to drive on the beach was less than 1/4 mile away and there were restaurants within walking distance. If you can handle a slightly shabby decor, try Sherry's restaurant for the all you can eat breakfast buffet across the street and about 1 block south. Alternately, go about 2 miles north to the main shops area in Daytona and look for the MAI TAI lounge/bar in the movie theatres complex building. The entire place is on the second floor and open to the ocean breezes as well as the beach Band Shell. (there were no performances when we were there) Also Bubba Gump's and Quizno's and Johnny Rocket's diner in the same complex.
Be sure to note the dates of the October annual motorcycle rally, Biketoberfest. Rooms are likely to be snapped up quick during this week. (we missed it by 2 weeks)

We loved the Dip and would choose it again for sure!

June 26-28, 2007 --
I give our stay a 3 -or- 4. After reading some of these postings, I will have to say our visit was just fine. For starters- Just because the sign says "resort" don't roll in thinking that you're going to be staying at the Taj-Mahaul! The Sea Dip is a bit run down (afterall its been through a massive hurricane and lived to tell about it...) but from everything we saw during our 3 day stay there, it was just what we wanted. The location was about a mile and a half south of the Main St. Pier (you can see it in the distance) on A1A, so if you are traveling with children you are away from the more "party" crowd- especially at night. The people and staff were really friendly and made us feel welcomed! Of course the first place the kids wanted to look at was the pool and the beach.... both impressively clean! We were there during the middle of the last week of June 2007 and our kids had the pool pretty much all to themselves. There was no one there doing activities with the kids ...like some of the other resorts do... but that was fine with us! Very nice well kept poolside area and chairs. Access to the pool from our room was approximately 50ft. and about a 100ft. from the entrance steps to the beach. Both the pool and the beach gates are key-entries. There is a water hose when you come back up from the beach where you can stop and spray the sand off. There is also a very nice, clean outdoor grilling area with 4 large charcoal grills right next to the pool. You might want to line the grill surface with heavy tinfoil, but otherwise they were very clean. The parking area is well lit at night.

The fact that we were trying to get the most bang for our buck brought us to The Seadip and we got what we wanted. It's a quiet place with older couples or families who stay there for long periods of time. Other rooms that are privately owned and aren't being used are leased out to vacationers like us. We were out and about most of the time so we really didn't need to sink alot of money into a place to snack, sleep, and bathe. For the money you couldn't beat the value. The room was clean and neat in appearance. It looked like it had been recently remodeled. There was only a stand up shower in our room, but being that close to the beach that was fine... its better for getting the sand washed out of hair and clothes. The beds could use new mattresses, but otherwise I don't think anyone had any trouble sleeping! There were no bugs in our room other than some very small ants (very few!). Being right next to the beach there's really not much you can do about a thing like that. If that sort of thing bothers you, stop and buy a room fogger and set it off before you unload your things in your room. Since I had been to the beach several times before, I knew to bring air tight ziplock bags to keep foods in. I fixed a huge breakfast two of the days we stayed there. The appliances were old but worked just fine. The kitchenette was adequate and had everything we needed to get through our visit. Parking is excellent and easy to get into and out of from the street.

If you are planning to stay here and use the kitchen for cooking, etc... you might want to throw in some heavy tinfoil, large and small good ziplock bags for storage, and don't forget to stop at the grocery! There's a huge Publix grocery store north and south of the Seadip. It really does save money if you're not always eating "out".

A few things to mention: The Ponce Inlet Lighthouse. If you have never seen a lighthouse in person before... it is humbling. Do a search on this lighthouse for more information and exact directions. Its about 10-15 minutes from the Seadip and worth taking the time to go see it! You will pass the entrance/parking lot for the "Sunglow Pier" which has a full service resturant called "Crabby Joe's"...great food, great prices, casual attire, and a very unique dining experience! The Main St. Pier is north from the Sea Dip about a mile and a half. It's definately a must see! If you have never ran the coastline up A1A toward St. Augustine, its worth the trip! Beautiful!! St. Augustine is awesome!!
