I'm also not quite sure which type of "sea" hotel you are referencing, but I'll cover the two that would be of interest to me personally.

1) On-shore hotel:
I suspect this type of hotel would not only be decorated in a general "sea theme" (with individual rooms or each floor being a specific motif) but also offering activities that are water-related (ie: snorkeling, diving, surfing, sailing, parasailing, windsurfing, deep-sea fishing, etc.).
Being a diver, this type of hotel has appeal for me because it would offer an assortment of water sports and activities that I enjoy. (Honestly, almost the entire inside of our house is painted in an underwater motif.)

2) Off-shore hotel:
I would reference this type of hotel with the likes of the Poseidon Undersea Resort (Bahamas), The Hydropolis (Dubai) and the small Jules Undersea Lodge (Florida). These types of facilities have an even greater appeal for me as I love the idea of being surrounded by the ocean. The main drawback is the price. Being unique in design ensures a higher per/room cost. The maintenance of these type of structures is also unique and adds to the higher fees being charged. Luxury and such unique surroundings limits the type of visitor who can afford to visit.

I love the idea of underwater tourism, though I also have great concern for the type of environmental impact these facilites have on our already stressed reef systems. The deep water projects do have less impact than the shallow water construction (in terms of the reef structures), but the impact is still there.

i wouldn't be averse to a sea-themed resort/hotel, but there are other factors that i would have to consider:
-the real 'sea' around it: does it have good underwater sights (ie fishes, corals, wrecks, etc to explore)

hi Nali...
not exactly sure what you mean by your question, but here goes...

i once stayed at Atlantis resort in the bahamas, which is a "sea" themed resort and overall it was quite tacky and extremely touristy. it was basically like the disney world of the caribbean. i personally would never go back there. however, i would be open to staying at another sea themed hotel, but many factors such as price and location would def. be considered. hope this helps.

Honestly I don't care either way. Pretty much my only factors when choosing a hotel are price and location...it's only a place to sleep/eat/shower/etc for me.

If you're suggesting an underwater hotel... then yeah - that would be cool - love ot sit and watch the fish out of the window....

If it's a "sea" themed hotel... well a little cliche I think
