Our family has been staying at Sea Colony for years and love it. Very family oriented. Clean beaches, well patrolled by lifeguards. Activities for kids including junior lifeguard, swimming pool races and diving for money (kids keep the change). Weekly bonfires with marshmallows and sticks provided (byo gram crackers and chocolate) with music and dancing on beach. Sea Colony West...

My family used to go to Sea Colony every year for our summer vacation, but as the kids got older we started to lose interest and as a result we hadn't been back to Bethany in nearly a decade. This October, we wanted a late season vacation and didn't want to spend too much or drive too far. Island 101...

The previous reviewer mentioned about flying kites. It's not allowed during normal beach hours, but there are always lots of people out in the evening flying kites, my kids included. that's one of my favorite times at Bethany- when the sun is coming down, the sky is beautiful, the beach is quiet. every year, i see the price of Sea...

We’ve chosen Sea Colony twice in the past few years for a low-key family vacation due to its distance from home (close enough yet far enough) and its wide variety of lodging options that allow you to tailor your stay to personal preferences and budgets. After staying in the oceanfront towers four years earlier, we opted for a townhouse in...

We rented a 2 bedroom condo by the tennis courts. The condo fit our needs. It had an enclosed screen porch that we enjoyed. We had to clean off the chairs. They were filthy. The beds were ok. They do have ants and we had to spray. The pots and pans were wok style and made it had to cook...

Condo rentals are always a gamble. Our agent helped with guarded advise. Our selection was wonderful. New? No, but big bright, clean and comfortable. Hey it's beach front and you would feel uncomfortable walking into designer new with sandy feet. The two bedroom condo on the 12th floor of the main building was overlooking the pool and beach. Out the...

We just finished a 3 day weekend in this Condo at Sea Colony. We have stayed at Sea Colony 2 other times and had good experiences both of those times. This time was much different. There were stains all over the carpets and the downstairs furniture. It seemed like the carpets had not been cleaned in years. The back porch...

What an blah property, and SOOOO over-priced. Dated, crowded, too many rules(!) - just a plain lousy place to spend a family vacation. The only bright spot was the tennis (although we are a family of novices and not very demanding) and some good restaurants off-site. What do I mean by rules? I was even told by a lifeguard that...

While our daughter and son-in-law were on a cruise, we were caring for our two granddaughters, aged 11 and 9. We brought them to Sea Colony for 4 wonderful days. The convenience of the beach and pool and the security allowed us to give them a little more freedom than we would have at home in NYC. There was a...

We spent 1 week at Sea Colony East this summer. We loved Sea Colony. We loved the convenience and beauty of staying ocean front. We rented an umbrella for the week and enjoyed lots of time on the beach. I took the outdoor water aerobics class with Jackie and loved every minute of it. The pools were clean and well...
