We stayed at the Seven Seas for a week in late September,early October.Had one of the most incredible vacations ever!I have to say that the place is NOT luxury.The staff is great,treat you wonderful.Only the bedroom is air-conditioned.Equipped kitchen/living room combo,bath with shower only.The maid washes the bedspreads,sheets,towels,etc. and actually hangs them out back on a line to dry!Dive shop out front,but we went to veg, sun and read,don't dive or snorkel,but others said diving/snorkeling was great. Good front porch for sitting.Pool in back is enclosed on three sides by buildings and a fence on the other side,so in Sept it was HOT!,the pool was small but adequate.Close enough to town(we rented a golf cart for the week, but not necessary if you want to walk, not that far).Be sure to go to Papi's Diner, directly behind Seven Seas,a short walk around the block.Great food,very reasonable prices.We have vacationed in the Mayan Riviera/Cancun area in all-inclusive,luxury resorts twice a year for the past 6 years, so this was kind of a culture shock for us. San Pedro is a wonderful town,small, with the friendliest people we have ever met. Do not expect Cancun,etc. on your vacation to AC.DO EXPECT a very different,wonderful, relaxing vacation.The beach in front of the Seven Seas is not the best.You best enter the water from the pier,down a ladder,but once in the water, it is warm,clear and BEAUTIFUL.The beach is public,so you will find locals coming to swim in either their shorts and tee-shirts, or as we encountered, some women stripped down to underwear and bras.No problem(they were covered more than some bathing suits!).It is very much a family-oriented island,children go to school every day, you see them walk to school with their uniforms,crisp and clean.Safety was never an issue.There is a small grocery behind the Seven Seas,across the street from Papi's where we bought bacon,eggs,etc and cooked breakfast.Also a bakery right around the corner. You will have a wonderful time, just don't expect luxury digs,not available at the Seven Seas!Just wonderful service,a great place to relax and have a great vacation.
