Had an excellent time. Could have had more waiter staff in the pool area. Food was good. Housekeeping could be improved. Just about every day we needed to call for washcloths. The guards should have kept people from other resorts out of the Sea Garden pool area. There were not enough chairs and umbrellas for those of us paying to...

Many of the other reviews reflect our positive experience at the Sea Garden: clean, great staff, beautiful pool and beach areas,best location in the Vidanta Complex, etc. So we want to share some things we wished we knew before we went: Time Share Sharks - we avoided them at the airport but didn't expect our Concierge to high pressure us...

This was our first trip and we loved it!! From the time we got there - the guys behind the counter, the bellboys, the maids, and waiters were very accomodating and awesome!! The grounds are very immaculate. So close to Vadanta which has a wonderful shopping area and plenty of restaurants to choose from!

Smaller, well taken care of hotel. We stayed here on a time share and would recommend it. The staff were exceptional. Very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself it a little older then the surrounding Vidanta, but maintained and taken care of. The demographic of people staying seems a bit older, but I liked the more quiet private feel. Visitors...

We are Mayan members and were in need of a relaxing vacay. Not wanting to go to the mega complex at Nuevo Vallarta, we noticed that the Sea Garden was getting fabulous reviews. It is a smaller resort but has been wonderfully maintained and is right on the beach. No shuttle to get to the pool, beach or restaurant like...

Spent two weeks as a guest at this resort. It will had a 5 star if not for the restaurant service at the place. We visited three times; breakfast, lunch and dinner and all three times the service was very bad. We had to ask again and again for more water, coffee etc. felt like we were continually ignored.

Reviews of the Sea Garden seem to be all over the map!! You wouldn't even suppose they were speaking about the same property! One week a guest gives a 5-star rating, with positive comments. Within a week or 2 before or after, you'll find another guest rating it with 1-star and the distinct impression from their comments, they would have given it a -0 rating had that been an option. I also could not help noticing the "socialmediamanager"(?) seldom responded to the most negative reviews/comments and even when replying to the more favorable reviews, seldom addressed the specific concerns or issues the guests raised! Overall, I found his/her responses about as helpful as a load of bricks on a sore toe!! Would really like to know if previous/recent past guests' concerns/complaints/problems/issues have been/will ever be remedied. If so, in what way? For example, is true the only means by which one is given a decent room is by agreeing to go on a T/S presentation? Is the front-desk staff friendly and helpful or not? Are rude staff members taken to task for their behavior towards their guests? Is wifi now available at no cost or @ less than $25.00 US per day? Are the rooms clean and modernized or dirty and dated? I realize the reviews are all subjective in nature, but there are some minimum standards common across the industry, aren't there? Assuming anyone does actually offer a an explanation of sorts or not, I personally am locked into a visit here early next Spring willy-nilly, but I would however, like to forewarn my potential traveling companions what to expect! Thanks :)
