Hotel is located on a nice spot and is huge. We thought it was pricey for the comfort of room (lack of enough light bulb in room), outside was not maintained.Staff was helpful and pleasant.

Hotel has a very good view of the north coast, but that's there it ends. Rooms are not kept properly and some have an order. The food was ok.

My stay @ silver seas was comfortable the food was good the rooms were big with a huge veranda overlooking the sea. If your a true lover of jamaica then you will know that the splendour of the bigger more expensive hotels is not really necessary. A little place like silvers seas can make for a beautifully quaint stay while your in JA. I would stay there again without a doubt!!!!

I have stayed at Silver Seas 6 times now and when I arrived two if the staff greeted me with a warm hug. I picked the room I wanted and it was very clean. Staff are great and the location is very good. Restaurant has very good food and we also went out onto the street and found little restaurants with amazing cheap food that is great tasting. Very friendly place. Going back in December.

I think me and my girlfriend pay too much for the hotel since it is poorly maintain my back was sort from the sagging mattress. Paper tissue holder is falling apart it is scary to even leave your belonging since it is poorly secure. A little fridge and microwave will be nice to have but it is nice to relax bec it is quiet.

Disrespectful and unfriendly front desk staff. Bathroom ceiling filled with cobwebs. Door latches are cheap and unsafe. I felt nervous there the entire time with my children because of the door locks. Ivan the chef was real nice and helpful. Hotel located on the beach but neighborhood isn't the best. Wouldn't stay there again. Rooms are definitely overpriced.

This hotel is one of the oldest in Ochi and has all of the charm of its original features. Unlike the resort complexes in the area, it offers a genuine insight into Jamaica life and living. Set back from the roadside the hotel is quite literally on the ocean edge and the views at sunset are outstanding. Donna the bar tender is a god send to the hotel and completely makes up for the rude and grumpy receptionist. She will go the extra mile for you every time recommending the best places to see, get around and eat in the area. The rooms are lovely and the balcony's are huge with the best views around. If you are board of tedious resort hotels that offer the same experience whatever country you are in, I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Simple room accommodations, but clean and cared for, packed with character, charm and a laid back relaxed Jamaican approach to very good service. We just had to ask, and we were well taken care of each time. The Jamaican food dishes were superbly prepared ... every time. Thank you for two relaxing visits by the sea ...

Over-all for the price its ok, but compared to Canada it still would be considered below par, but all in all the ocean views, the character of the hotel itself as it is quite dated, and the staff are all charming. A two minute walk to downtown Ocho Rios so it is quite convenient to shop the local markets etc. I was very impressed by the cook as he takes pride in what he cooks and is very personable, not to say that the rest of the staff don't deserve notice as all try to be very friendly and accomadating. Extended my stay so that says it all.

Elendigt og total nedslidt hotel, belliggende i "ghetto" lignende område, selv personalet frarådte os at gå uden for hotellets område. Ingen ting syntes at blive gjordt rent på dette hotel. Beskidte værelser, senge er kun fjedre og et lagen, poolområde er beskidt, nedslidt og delvist lukket. Wi-fi virker kun i et lille begrænset område i receptionen. Personalet virker fuldstændig fraværende, bla. sidder der en mand med et keybord i poolområdet og spiller amazing grace på repeat hele dagen. Hvis det var muligt ville jeg give karakteren 0 på alle parametre. Kort og godt hold jer langt væk herfra.

För att bo i "stan" och ändå ha gångavstånd till beach är detta ett bra läge. Hotellet var något slitetmen höll ändå någon form av bra standard. Det gick nästan att känna att hotellet varit väldigt stiligt under sin storhetstid. Personalen var vänlig och hjälpsam, både i städ bar och reception.

Ik heb helaas de Chikungunya opgelopen dus heb weinig van Ocho Rios kunnen zien maar des te meer van het hotel. Ze zijn heel behulpzaam geweest en heel lief voor mij. Het hotel is echt een aanrader en kamer 215 heeft een heel mooi balkon, echt geweldig. Het ontbijt vind ik wat minder had wat internationaler gemogen maar verder echt geweldig mooi.

We were very positively surprised by Silver Seas hotel. We had no expectations when booking, and found ourself arriving at a nice, classic hotell with the friendliest staff. Overlooking the sea whilst still being close to the city pulse. This hotel which likely had it's grand period in the 60s, still keeps its charm and you may feel the turning of time when sitting on the porch.

Hotêl agréable où nous avons passés 2 nuits. Le personnel est sympa. Nous avions une chambre à l'étage avec une vue magnifique sur la mer. La chambre était propre et spacieuse avec 2 lits. L'hôtel est à deux pas du centre ville d'Ocho Rios (place de l'horloge) du marché local et de toutes commodités. On se déplace aisément à pied. Il n'est pas dans la partie plus touristique mais pas loin non plus (10min à pied). L’hôtel est très très calme et c'est vrai qu il peut paraître un peu "mort" mais cela ne nous a pas dérangé car nous y étions que pour dormir.

La estancia fue placentera, la hospitalidad de los del hotel es muy buena, el servicio del restaurante tambien es bueno, la zona costera en la que está ubicada tiene un mar tranquilo y si buscas snorkel, justo frente del hotel a unos 55 metros de la orilla se encuentra el mejor fondo marino y arrecife...si me volvería a hospedar allí, las habitaciones son grandes y las de planta alta cuentan con balcon que tienen una excelente vista.

"NOT EXCEPTIONAL"
03/31/15 Shantaneous Kingston, Jamaica
Went there last november with my fiance. Our room was really far from the lobby but silent, the rooms needed renovation and the AC made a horrible noise all night long ! Wasn't enthised by their food so we went into the town to get food. The beach wasn't all that beachy if u cant swim DO NOT GO IN THAT WATER.

"A lovely stay, thanks to Silver Seas' shining star...."
03/24/15 157kiwiann Auckland, New Zealand
This was a delightful mix of surprises. A rather tired grand hotel, but spacious and clean, right on the waterfront. What made my stay so good though, was from the start, the lovely Donna. From a welcoming comment when I booked by phone, to all sorts of help during my stay...she really made it a memorable event, almost single-handedly. Her greeting, her care beyond the call of duty all made Silver Seas a place that I would recommend. Thank you Donna.

"Horrible"
02/23/15 Lee Ann N
This place SUCKS. Don't go here! We stayed 1 week , ONLY b/c we had paid in advance online! The staff was very rude. The hotel is a "Has been", back in 1940. NOTHING has been updated since!! There are No phones in the rooms, No internet, No clocks! the hotel manager said we are only allowed ONE towel per day!. We were caught in a rain storm & they wouldn't give us any towels! The bar area is run down. The pool was tiny, OLD, had cracks everywhere. They were out of Everything we tried to order on the menu. The sheets didn't fit the OLD OLD beds that were very uncomfortable. Bathroom was in need of an extreme update! The pipes were old & ready to explode. Smelled bad.

"LOVE this place"
02/20/15 emdKelly Moose Jaw, Canada
I always enjoy staying here at Silver Seas, I almost dont want to write anything good so that its not all booked up when I want to come and stay here. I have got some nice deals on the rooms paying with local money and staying out of season. The rooms are HUGE and lovely, the veranda is amazing and the view is the best ever...so peaceful and relaxing. free wifi in the lobby. pool is nice and there is a resturant and bar although i have not used either. I always enjoy at least one night here when Im home in Ochi. thank you for always having a room for me

"Value for Money"
01/21/15 Brunski1 Antwerp, Belgium
Large rooms that reminds of the colonial grandeur... A fantastic location in the center of town. Staff that makes you feel like you are the owner of the place. And a bar ! What a bar! It's been in good hands, all those years, with the Mc Kay Family of Wisconsin....(is it still?). What I can say : I've spent about 1000 days at that bar (call me a rummy - I don't care) between 1990 and 2000, and recently checked it out. I Approve of this place!

"Not good"
01/21/15 J F Kingston, Jamaica
I went into this visit having read many reviews and feeling well prepared for what we would find. My expectations were low for the price, but our experience was worse than I anticipated. The view was great, but the sheets didn't fit the mattresses, water in the tub was ankle deep by the end of my shower, the smell of marijuana was everywhere, the beach was virtually non-existent, and the housekeeping staff got into a loud fight just outside our room. You had to give the front desk a deposit for pool towels or for a remote for the ancient TVs, and there wasn't even an alarm clock in the room. And I never could pick up the wireless signal, even in the lobby. Donna, the bar manager, was great. But otherwise, it wasn't worth the price for us. It might be good for people who are expecting a hostel type environment and want to go snorkeling.
Overall Rating
"Different and cool!"
01/10/15 K G Ocean City, New Jersey
The hotel took a hit from Sandy, but it is very comfortable and the location is excellent -- back from the bustling street and right on the water. Every room has a beautiful ocean view, and is very spacious inside, with a large balcony -- perfect for reading, writing and relaxing. Everyone is extremely friendly, and Donna goes out of her way to help you, whatever your need. Patrick is also a trip! The food is generally very good, but on Thursday and Friday evenings, a resident artist/chef comes in to take charge of the bbq, and the results are not to be missed. Generally, this is a hotel that is only going to improve -- with new tvs, and other small changes, it could be one of the best locations on the island. It isn't the all-inclusive kind of vacation -- this is a real place, and so much the better for it. We will definitely return for more.

"Great Location & Price"
01/02/15 Eval-Specialist USA
I stay at this property almost every visit to Jamaica. The hotel is centrally located in the heart of Ocho Rios the #1 resort city on the North Coast. 5 literal minutes walk to the clock. Dunn's river falls and Fern Gully is just a 7 minutes drive from there. You are few steps from the beach. So if you are looking for something economically good; this is the place you want to stay. The rooms are OK, Staff, and fully ACed. Big balconies, and closet space. The nearly all rooms are 100% Ocean view and you cant beat that turquoise water scene. There is a bar and some good space around the pool for entertainment. The price is honestly not bad. There could be some improvement for the beds and furniture in the rooms and a modern day Flat screen TV would be great also. WiFi is only located in the lobby area, I would recommend the entire property get some WhiFi because not everyone wants to sit in a lobby with many other people scrolling or tapping on screens, the comfort of a bedroom also could be kind when using WiFi. The number one thing I enjoyed was the shower. I enjoy a good shower any day of the week and this place has good bathrooms. Overall, I recommend it if you are not looking for fancy and mega resort style. Its for people who are really into getting out and about on a vacation and not necessarily someone who wants to be in a hotel room all day and night.

"Nine days in November"
12/19/14 hansmathias Oslo, Norway
The hotel is excellent, and so is the service and the people providing it. However, the wi-fi could have beenimproved by simple means: Move the router out from an office and into the front desk, and use some dollars to increase the speed from 1,5 Mbit (which I measured, to at least 5 Mbit. Despite the fact that the hotel is close to downtown, there is peace and quiet.

"Loved the Bar and Manager Donna Denny!"
12/12/14 Juanita D Plains, Montana
Stayed there on Saturday night, December 6, 2014, hotel doesn't look like much when driving up, but once inside it is very large, with decks, pool, bar, restuarant, beach, dock and wonderful service! We expecially liked the bar and bar manager, Donna. She made sure we were always waited on and never had to go find her to order. She inquired our plans while in Ocho Rios and even called and made our reservations for our excursions. She was a pleasure to deal with! If you are looking for a fancy, high end hotel, this one is not for you, and I don't believe Jamiaca is for you, but if you are looking for a hotel that is nice, clean, friendly and has a wonderful atmosphere, this is the perfect place! Loved the people, loved the hotel and loved Donna!
