I can say that the front desk staff was amazing and tried to make sure things got taken care of. HOUSEKEEPING is another story we had an ocean front King Suite when we arrived there were dirty dishes in the dishwasher, when we told the front desk about it the reply was "there is a dishwasher in your room?" First strike, it took two visits to the room to remove the dirty dishes and then they never replaced what they took so we had no forks or spoons in the room and now only one coffee cup and glass...strike two.Over the course of the next three days when housekeeping did the room they only made the bed and replenished towels never restocking the coffee or the plastic bathroom cups that made for strike three. We informed the front desk about not having coffee twice but it didn't seem to bother them at all. The final incident was when we got back to the room and there was a pack of cigarettes on the nightstand. Neither of us smoke. The hotel is older and it has an policy of locking the gate to the beach from the hotel leaving you no way to get to beach after 9pm without walking out on the street and to the public access in either direction. When the gate is open you must go through the restaurant from the pool area to get to the lobby to go to your room making it a very uncomfortable situation.
Again I say the front desk staff tried to be helpful and they were very nice but overall the hotel suite was not worth the cost we paid. We will not return again.

Room Tip: If you do not mind poor housekeeping services then you will be fine.

Our second time at The Sea Lord was even better than the first! We brought our 16 yo daughter this time and stayed in a one bedroom suite with an ocean view. The room was very accommodating. The staff work very hard daily and are always busy making their hotel the best that it can be. We ordered breakfast which was delicious. The continental breakfast is filling as well. The hotel is situated perfectly within the reefs, making snorkeling a fun adventure!! Thank you again.

We stayed here in room 305 with a beautiful ocean, pool view. It was a very large room with a king sized bed, walk in closet, bathroom with tub/shower and blow dryer, a kitchenette with a full sized refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker stove. The room and hotel itself is very clean. Bedding and towels were of good quality. Free wi-fi. The hotel has been fairly recently renovated to include a restaurant and bar. The pool area is quite lovely. One of the best features of this hotel is it's location: directly on the beach and within easy walking distance to the pier, several restaurants, bars and shops. Staff is friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay here again soon.

Room Tip: room 305 has a stunning view of both the beach and pool area.

Our son's wedding was at the Sea Lord on May 14th, and the location could not have been more perfect --- right on the beach, with nice rooms and a very accommodating staff. Members of the wedding party and some out of town guests stayed at the hotel, which was very convenient, both for relaxation and rehearsal. It was a beach wedding, and the staff really worked with everyone to make sure that things went smoothly. The wedding brunch was also lovely, with a great array of food choices and an attentive staff. All in all, a great experience!

The Sea Lord proved to be a very nice stay. The staff was very friendly from start to finish. Our room had an amazing ocean front balcony for a very fair price. The view was just perfect. The room was fairly updated, clean and spacious with a kitchen and full fridge. The location is very convenient to the center of town, a 2 minute drive or an easy walk. Breakfast is included but is slightly limited, more on the lines of pastries and fruits. Lobby and dining area was nice as well as the outdoor pool area. For a minimal fee they will bring down lounge chairs also which was well worth it. We were very happy with our choice!
