Arrived at the hotel in a taxi, the driver kindly removed my suitcase from the boot and while I was paying I expected a bell boy to come and help with my luggage. There was a bell boy standing there and it looked as though when he saw me he ran off so that he didn't have to help. I...

Dear Sumarai, We thank you for your feedback as we hope to improve our guests experiences.

After 11 wonderful nights with my family at the Sea View I can only say the very best about this hotel. Beautiful large room, very clean, grandiose service from all staff members, perfect for children (mine is 15 months old). What makes the service special is the surprisingly wonderful cuisine of the hotel restaurant and the fact that you will...

The hotel has kind of an old school look and feel. Overall it's a nice hotel, with a quiet oceanfont...one of the reasons why I selected the hotel. The drinks are the poolside bar are a little weak, and incidental charges for towels and the use of lounge chairs is a bit much for the caliber that the hotel fashions...

Just returned from 4 nights at the Sea View in Bal Harbour. It's a wonderful, old school hotel. There are guests who have been coming back there for 50 years, and for good reason. It's a good quality, family type hotel where the staff greets you by name. Our room was an oceanview with a balcony. The room was large...
