I have a reservation booked next month and was wondering whether the villa buildings have elevators. Also, I have requested an oceanfront room. Is there a particular building I should request?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, there are elevators at the Villa's. The Villa's are a hundred yards or so back from the ocean and create a U shape at the back of the resort. So the "oceanfront" Villa units are the ones at the bottom of the U which face the ocean. The ones on the left and righ sides of the U are "oceanview". In my opinion, they are ALL oceanview.

AFAIK all buildings have elevators. None of the Villas are oceanfront really - at most they are oceanview and this all depends on which unit you get - only the North and South towers have oceanfront rooms. Map below for ease of reference.

Thank you. Seems like Villa 2 might have the best views.

What the map doesn’t show is the dunes that separate the resort from the oceanfront/beach area. They aren’t huge dunes but they are large enough that I doubt you could even see the ocean from the villas unless you are on the upper floors/decks.

That said we’ve only walked through Seawatch resort, we have not actually stayed there yet. We always stay at TOTG which is a much smaller and less crowded resort without as many kids, which we prefer.

Of babes at the pool maybe, but not of the ocean. You might be able to see a horizon depending on what floor you're on.

SeaWatch presents another upgrade dilemma. If you book a 2BR unit in one of the Towers and opt in for an upgrade to a larger unit, you could end up in a 3BR Deluxe unit in the villas. When I book SeaWatch, I ask for unit 1604 in the South Tower. It's a 2BR with a wrap-around balcony with an oceanfront view and a view down the beach. I don't opt in to an upgrade to a larger unit.

Back during Covid I was teleworking from all over the place, SeaWatch included. Spent almost two weeks in Unit 1605, a 3BR unit right next to 1604. Honked off some people because I had my back to the ocean so the camera showed the ocean as background. One of the widest balconies anywhere.

Does TOTG have privately owned units? One of the recurring complaints about SeaWatch is the abundance of dogs, something that is easily understood once one realizes that Wyndham owns only 38% of the units at SeaWatch.

The largest two bedroom units at TOTG are about 75% as large as the largest 2BR units at SeaWatch.

Yes there are privately owned units at TOTG - but my understanding is that Wyndham owns a large majority of the units in the building, which I don’t believe is the case with Seawatch as you indicated. The two bedroom units at TOTG can have odd layouts depending on the unit you get. If you reserve a two bedroom deluxe oceanfront unit - ask for a unit with numbers ending in either 20 or 34 - these are the corner units with better layouts and larger corner balconies. We were in unit 634 when we were last there - which is actually a three bedroom lockout unit - however because it’s a lockout design - they can separate it out into two different units when needed - a two bedroom deluxe and a one bedroom deluxe unit.

We’ve stayed in the Villas at Seawatch many times and have alway had a (somewhat distant) ocean view. We actually like the villas better than the towers…they’re a little quieter and the units we’ve had seem to be in better shape
