"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
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Gammalt hotell men ligger perfekt, nära till allt, bra kock & trevlig personal. Vilken utsikt!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ocho Rios ett par nätter"
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Geweldige hotel in ocho dios"
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Genuine Ocho Rios"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia 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
"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.

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!
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.
"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!
"The hotel needs renovation, but great location and friendly service"
12/03/14 Runar F Asker, Norway
This hotel needs renovation and marketing - it has the best location, quiet and right on the beach, still only 200m from the town centre ! Large and clean rooms, a very nice terrace pool & bar, great service. A good kitchen with limited menu, but you can also ask for specials, if you give them a few hours/one day warning, such as lobsters etc. at a very good price. Wonderful people working there, but the reception and bar area wi-fi is slow (but free) and the beach area needs a shine-up, which should be a very easy thing to do. The problem is that the owner lives in USA and too far away from the daily chores ! BUT, if you want a place to relax and get your heart rate down, you have found it !
