Will not return...ever!!

This place is a DUMP. AC overheated and had to turn it off. TVs are 22" , poor signal. Pool closed. Gym is a stock of equipment by the pool on the open. No room service. Bed spread stained and linen was old. door lock to bedroom nonfunctional...I fixed it myself. Kitchen had no utensils, bathroom shower very old and in need of upgraded. NOT WORTH THE $$ YOU CHARGE ME FOR THE ROOM/VILLA. VERY DISSAPOINTED!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've seen $30 roadside motels in better shape.

Disappointed

The staff was friendly and very apologetic about running out of water but no compensation was given. This was my first trip to Jamaica (we were in Jamaica because my father-in-law passed away and we didn't want to burden family members (there were other family members from out of the country who were already staying at the home of our family). Because of no water (my husband is a diabetic) we were not able to get our complementary breakfast on the last day of our stay (Sunday). Because of no water, my husband could not take his medication. We had to go to a gas station to get juice and a snack so that he could take his medication. We had no water for more than 24 hours, so we checked out dirty. I'm glad that I packed some wet wipes because that is how we washed up Sunday morning (last day of our stay). Right before we checked out, the water truck arrived but we still could not bathe because the water was cold. We were able however, to finally flush the toilet before we checked out, so we didn't leave any "presents". The food that was available was good but most of the items on the menu were not available.

Good for the money

Staff was friendly, they were accommodating with our wishes. Only issue is I called ahead to make sure my husband and I would have a King Bed. I was assured I would, upon check in we had two full beds and were told to get creative and push them together. Other than that, good location and good value with the breakfast.

I never stayed here but was charged!

I arrived in Jamaica and found that I had been booked by the government in a different hotel. I called Orbitz and explaained, asking to cancel. They asked me to call back the next day and I did. I was put on hold, transferred to a client site and then left a message. I was very disappointed to see that my creit card was charged.I have tried calling Orbitz on this but have had no success
