"Silver Seas, Ocho Rios, JA"
Great experience and offer for the price. Hotel is older but clean and by the water with great views from room balcony. I will definitely stay there again, and highly recommend it for a budget traveler. It's located few blocks from the main road within walking distance, and it's in a safe neighborhood.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Thid Hotel was near to everything"
When you need a clean and tidy place to stay in Jamaica that's the place. Oh the staff members were very helpful. Ivan and Percy. That's my place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel and staff"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to beach nice view very old need fixing"
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.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not the best"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming and original"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"hotel was close to a lot of attractions"
The hotel was very comfortable and clean,but there was a few plumbing issues. The hotel staff were outgoing and friendly. The view from the room was spectacular and I enjoyed the cool breeze that came off the sea.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing water view"
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 ...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Tha bed was not good"
Tha bad was not good...all tha matlaces was werry old woke up avry morning whit big back pain...tha rest was ok...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
An old hotel that is being given a facelift by a very enthusiastic and friendly manageress. Ideal situation at the waters edge.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old time charm, convience and outstanding views"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"old and run down"
very old and run down. poor part of town. recommended not to go out at night.Genuine Expedia guest review
If you like classic places and want to be in a scene from Casablanca.......The Silver Seas is the place you want to be. It has class and elegance that you don't see anymore. Yes it needs some renovations but the charm this hotel exudes is second to none! The staff are wonderful. Treat yourself to another time. I wouldn't even consider an all inclusive […] after having stayed for a week at the Silver Seas!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was very large and very tired. Had a magnificent view over the ocean- as did all the other rooms. Also the rooms are right on the water. Two double beds but only one lamp in main area. Bathtub hand painted white but really showed its age. Hotel quite well located re the centre of Ochie. No in room safe - 2 star but could leave valuables @ front […] desk. However the clerk listed every single thing, every money bill- we had 3 different currencies, every personal card, every single piece of jewelry! Did not see anyone eating @ hotel, very few people in bar- which was very cheap Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We booked late and this was all that remained in Ocho Rios - but it was very cheap! The rooms were comfortable enough, but everything was a bit tatty. We were visited by the largest cockroaches I've ever seen! The airconditioning was very effective, not only at keeping the room cool, but also at covering up the noise from the nearby nightclub (probably […] not always a problem, but there was a late night event when we stayed. This hotel was probably quite swish in it's hey day, but that was probably some time ago! The staff were friendly enough. Wifi was available in the foyer only, not in the rooms - not very convenient or private. Easy access on foot to the center of Ocho Rios. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is dated, but the staff is very courteous. The air conditioner in our room stopped working for a couple days before they fixed it. Other than that, the price is right to stay here and it's right downtown. Not much to do at night.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Charm of yesteryear"
Built in 1947 when it must have been spectacular overlooking the seaside. was told that 31 of about 74 rooms were open; and the others are being scheduled for renovation. Our room was big and bright and clean with a huge balcony overlooking the coral rock coast and greenery....we watched a small boat pulling a fish net....the pool was clean....spacious […] ambience....breakfast was inexpensive a-la-carte and good value...the hotel is in need of freshening up but I plan to return. It has a romantic charm to it of yesteryear and I could imagine a Hemingway sitting here and writing....we had two rooms, both similar, for the five of us.....my adult children in their 20s also liked it,,,, Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Read this review"
This hotel is outstanding! When i booked i thought it would be a dive considering the cheap price but my expectations were completely blown away! the staff are extreamly friendly, its totally safe with a 24 hour security guard on duty and the room was huge, clean with a huge patio overlooking the most incredible view of the ocean EVER. This hotel is […] a historic sight it was the first hotel build in ocho rios so there are some railings and such that are breaking but it is not dangerous and it adds to the authenticity of the hotel. This hotel is right in the middle of the downtown area where you can find anything you might need with only a few minute walk like grocery stores, shopping, corner stores, restaurants and internet cafes. This hotel offers free wi fi in the lobby. there is a restaurant along the james ave alley called percys restaurant i believe, you must go there! its very cheap and delicious! YOU MUST STAY AT THIS HOTEL. If you arent into all inclusive but you want to stay at a beautiful hotel then silver seas is your place. When we went in November 2011 we were one of the few guests because of the down season so it was nice to have the whole place to ourselves. The food is good and the prices are a bit cheaper than I would expect to pay at a hotel. A guy works there named Lenny and he offers snorkel rentals and fishing trips etc. The snorkeling at this hotel is about a five minute swim directly out from the shore and its fantastic. Every day you will see tour boats stopping at this very place to bring people snorkeling and you will have it at the comfort of your hotel without paying to get there! Its extreamly safe to snorkel there and is one of the main things to do. Unfortunetly there isnt any sand at this hotel but the hotel is so breath taking anyway that i didnt mind. Enjoy your stay at the Silver Seas hotel as I know you will! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Sämsta jag upplevt!"
Fruktansvärt hotell! Dåligt läge,ingen service och framför allt riktigt dålig standard.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"El precio es muy accesible"
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.

"Een verrassend hotel,"
We kwamen bij het hotel tijdens een heftige regenbui, en het eerste wat opviel waren de plastic emmers die her en der geplaatst waren om regenwater van het lekkende dak op te vangen. Het hotel - overigens werkelijk schitterend gelegen direct aan zee - is duidelijk op zijn retour, maar je kunt aan alles zien dat het in het verleden een heel mooi en charmant […] hotel geweest moet zijn. Wij hadden een kamer op de begane grond die heel ruim was, inclusief een groot terras dat uitkeek op een weelderige tuin met daarachter de zee, en voorzien van een gloednieuw rotan zithoekje. Het bed was prima. Vanuit je terras kon je zo naar het eigen strand lopen wat echt verwaarloosd was maar ik zou een volgende keer zeker weer naar dit hotel gaan. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hôtel Silver Seas à Ocho Rios : bien placé"
Hôtel très bien placé en centre-ville de Ocho Rios, dans la section locale (pas la section touristique). Tout se fait aisément à pieds. Grande chambre avec un balcon permettant d'admirer les catamarans. Demandez une chambre à l'étage (pour la vue) avec un sol en céramique : évitez les chambres avec un parquet - les insectes en raffolent, croyez-moi […] !!! Les chambres sont bien entretenues; par contre, l'ensemble de l'hôtel est un peu défraîchi et semble un peu "mort". Bon rapport qualité/prix. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Leider etwas heruntergekommen..."
Das Hotel hat eine schöne Lage direkt am Mehr mit eigenem Strand. Es ist auch sehr leise. Mann hört sehr wenig von der Straße oder Clubs un der Nähe. Der Pool hat ein Kristall klares Wasser, was ich bisher noch nie in Jamaica geseghen habe. Leider sind die Betten seit langem in die Jahre gekommen. (durchgelegen und duietschen). Das Bad hätte auch mal […] eine Auffrischung nötig. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Great hotel, especially for the price. Big, spacious rooms and clean! The view was amazing. The bar was great, the pool looked well maintained. You can easily walk to nearby beaches so great location and downtown is walkable. Wifi is only available in the lobby. Would definitely recommend this place!
"Don't judge a book by its front cover..."
On arrival I thought OMG what have I booked. Was greeted warmly and taken to our room. Nothing special but felt like home. Lovely view from our balcony and you can't resist watching the sun rise in the morning. Pool was clean and didn't have to fight for sun loungers. Beach fantastic and was able to sit for hours quietly clearing my head which you need at times on holidays. All staff were so lovely in particular Patrick, Carol , Donovan (reception staff),Clive . Always willing to help us and were so friendly. Ivan is always helpful but needed to show us more of his lovely smile. Would definantly stay there again but more entertainment could enhance this hotel. Small refrigerator and a kettle would also be great .. Overall special thanks to all silver sea team fantastic holiday for our family...
"Love this Hotel"

Absolutely fabulous!! I loved this quaint beautiful hotel! The view from the room was amazing and the staff are unbelievably nice and caring!!! The pool was so warm. The atmosphere was breath taking! The room is huge with 2 balcony doors, that look on to the most amazing view of the ocean!!
"Stayed here many times....would avoid now!"
07/28/14 Heabie2 Florida
We have stayed here for about 5 years! We call it camping on the beach. Old rooms, clean, very basic service. $49 bucks we were happy! Last week stayed, rates up to $69, because of "renovations". Happy to pay it because maybe some new mattresses, etc...NOTHING! Still not gonna gripe about $69. Got into our bed the 1st night and there was a shovel worth of sand. Had to wash our feet cause the floor was that I dirty. Love the people there, but won't go back! If ya did like this place check out Ocean Sands! Right down the road, clean & bright!

well i am back in the uk now after my 2 weeks holiday in this hotel, the last time i was there was 10 years ago,and to my surprise it was mostly the same freindly staff there which was wonderful,yes the place could do with a lick of paint and a bit of updating but the views are just amazing and close to every were so no need for taxis to get about,so for me and my freinds that out weighed the need for updating i would like to thank ivan who works there for bringing me my cup of tea every morning and donna who really wants to help and please every one.we were a group of 4 woman 2 of us staying in silver sea the outher 2 staying in the rio which the only stayed there for 2 nights the rest of the time they were with us and they booked a room and stayed at the silver seas so all in all a wonderful girly holiday were all back there in september WONDERFUL PLACE WONDERFUL PEOPLE
"Great bargain suits flexible budget traveller"
06/08/14 Trevor G Greenlawn, New York
Just a cool place to be great location smack dab downtown Ocho Rios. If pot smoking offends you or if you are more the "all inclusive type" who wants all the amenities this is not the place to be. But if you want to be on the beach with great views a friendly staff that actually gets to know you and not afraid of mixing in with locals and interesting ex pats and seeing a little pot smoking going on definitely stay here. Hotel needs a facelift , it is clean and functions but outdated ...but you can't beat the value for a place to relax. Donna and Patrick are two Canadian-West Indians who run the place and can point you in the right direction for places to go and see and the Ocho rios action is minutes away, craft market , the main food market where you can grab awesome fruit for breakfast pick up the local white rum or grab a taxi and see the island. Although rates vary all rooms look down on the ocean with great views abd decent balconies and the pool and bar are laid back and lively. Hotel has wi fi but only in lobby area . I stayed ten days straight and if you want convenience and seeing the real jamaica over luxury and all inclusives then check it out. Lot of European budget travelers .
"This place is run down, I wasn't expecting a 5 star but it looks like a motel."
I've heard it's the oldest hotel in Ochi so I wasn't expecting a 5 star & for that price too. The place needs to be cleaned & painted. It could look so much better if they pay so much attention to details paint in brighter colour, add some life to the lobby. The gardens are a disgrace, they need to weed the gardens, they need to weed the back of the building going den to the ocean. There is no beach but that's ok. They just need to rake the walkway leading to the ocean. They have steps to go into the ocean which is full of moss. I was just fearful when I saw a little boy step onto it. They could provide a little fridge in the room. I had to drink everything hot. The bedside lamp was dull, tv didn't have a remote, there was no iron & the list goes on. I would never encourage anyone to go to the silver seas hotel!!
"the Great Silver Seas"
04/21/14 kevin S Miami Beach, Florida
It’s my 2nd time at Silver Seas-- the hotel is most relaxing and the location is ideal—great location for walking to all Ocho Rios has to offer—Jamaican restaurants, clubs, casino, local bars and craft markets. The view is amazing view from all vantage points whether the lobby or rooms—I even had breakfast in bed delivered by Ivan from the restaurant every morning. For me, Silver seas is great—great price, great service, great staff. Looking forward to staying at Silver Seas the next time my company sends me to Jamaica.

Silver Seas is the oldest hotel in Ocho Rios, having said that. It is in the perfect location. All rooms are ocean front. The hotel is not fancy by any means. The hotel is old and rustic, but it has a real charm to it. It is clean and the staff are amazing. Donna and Patrick are the perfect hosts they are so friendly and helpful, constantly making each person feel as if they are the only ones there. They take such good care of you. I would go back again and again. Philip Dawson MBA
