The staff is very friendly and responsive, most of them exceeded your expectations. They were so helpful and curiosity, I would recommend Sea Garden to anyone who wants to go to Puerto Vallarta for the first and I guarantee you will come back again and again, the restaurants, the atmosphere alone not to mention the weather and people will bring...

We love staying at the Sea Garden and walking for hours along the beach. It is just the perfect size and place close to the Marina restaurants, 5 minutes and you can jump on the bus in no time for PV.

The Sea Garden resort, part of the Vidanta family of properties, is amazing. Although a short walk on the beach from the rest of the Vidanta properties, you can visit the numerous restaurants, bars, shops, spas, etc. and charge everything to your Sea Garden room. Wonderful pool right next to the beach, very convenient to taxi stand if you want...

Had a great time, was worried it would be too "family friendly." There are some good restaurants within walking distance and Vallarta Adventures was walking distance. We had Adventures planned 4 days (surfing, luxery snorkeling, outdoor adventure, and rhythms of the night - all great) and other days we walked the beach laud on the beach/pool, went downtown, etc. If...

I really liked this place. The rooms were very comfortable and roomy and the cleaning staff do a excellent job. Every day they would make a little change in your room as to the way they folded your bed sheets or curtains, a very nice touch to making you feel special. This is not a big hotel, so if you...

The Sea Garden exceeded our family's expectations. 1. The "Joy Staff" provided fun programming all day long, like ping pong tournaments, water polo and volleyball, beach volleyball, art projects and more. 2. The hotel staff was very responsive and always positive. 3. Security was very present, but not over-present. 4. The pool was huge (although no hot tub). 5. The...

The Sea Garden is a smaller Resort - Has a nice Laid-back feel, we were on the fourth floor and had the garden view - we got the sun every morning which was nice, we would have rather been ocean side and got to see a sunset but that's the way it goes. Our room was great - separate bathroom...

I'm glad so many people love this place. It is a great spot, but the reviews might leave you with a higher expectation than you should have. We enjoyed it, but for me, it was a 3-3.5 star...4 star tops for my husband. We really liked it for the quietness, lack of large crowd, closeness to the beach, nearby convenience...

Just came back from PV. Stayed at this hotel. Found it nothing but excellent. The suite we got was roomy and clean. There was nothing like starting the day by opening the window curtains and seeing the ocean. The hotel is right next to the beach. The recreation team (Joy team - Ivan, Juan, Joanna and Abi) were excellent. My...

Sea Garden is the smallest of resorts apart of the Vindanta Group. It is off to the side but the closet resort to the beach. I was here in November 2016. The weather was great. The rooms need a bit of a makeover, but the food and the garden like grounds make up for it. I would stay again.

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 :)
