Awesome getaway!!

We had a wonderful time. We really had no complaints at all. The staff was terrific, the entertainment was awesome, the room was comfortable, (pillows were a little flat), the food was good, and if you got bored it's your own fault!! We would recommend this resort to our friends and family.

only worth a discounted hotel

We have been in Jamacia 4 times, always at an all inclusive. The hotel is dated but nice. The pool needs a lot of work on the tiles. The beach was not cleaned every day so very messy Did not go in the ocean due to the algae build-up. Food was average resort buffet, Steak House (reservations) was good. Put in a different room due to misunderstanding with the extra money paid for an ocean front view. Sent us a bucket with champaign which neither of us drink but nice gesture. Three different days we had unexpected "visitors". They took our complaint & sprayed the room. Offered us a suite the night before we were leaving. Did not want to pack & move for 1 night. Staff from the housekeeping, bars, entertainers, front desk & everyone we met were wonderful & very friendly & helpful. Loved them all, too bad about the rest..Bed was hard but not too bad.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

We took a taxi to Montego Bay for shopping, got bothered a lot but due to being in Jamacia a lot we were expecting that. You are able to negotiate prices at all the places we went.

GREAT HOTEL

The hotel was extremely clean, the staff members were extremely accomodating and friendly, and there was alot of variety in the food selection. The nightly entertainment was incredible and alot of work was put into having a great show so i highly recommend taking advantage of it! I dont have any major reservations about this place and would 100% go back.

Dining tip: In Hotel

alot of people stress over making reservations for the different restaurants but the buffet really does offer the best option of them all. I tried all the restaurants and still ended up at the buffet because it offered better dining options esp the steakhouse which was pretty basic.
