Stunning Resort!

The resort was beautiful, clean, and relaxing. The staff were friendly, accommodating, and understanding. The front desk upgraded us to the Deluxe wing upon arrival free of charge and we were able to experience all the perks that come with the upgrade. The food was remarkable and there was always a surplus of diner options. The day trips were reasonably priced and well worth the money. The beach was quiet in the more relaxing areas but also had certain areas where the staff provided daily activities such as games, sports, and competitions. Overall, this was a fantastic, updated, and high quality resort. I would visit again!

Close to the Excursions

The room was great. The food was subpar with every buffet meal offering the same food. The specialty restaurant, Sir Richard, was wonderful! If you can, get a table and enjoy the duck! If you want to eat dinner at a specific time, then you will be stuck with the buffet unless that time is 6:30 or 8:30. The specialty restaurants are tiny and hold maybe 40 people at a time. The choices for alcohol are also very limited--bummer! The best aspect for this hotel is its close proximity to the major excursions in Jamaica, such as Dunn's River Falls, Dolphin Cove, and Mystic Mountain.

December Vacation

Hello All ! Me and my husband traveled to Ocho Rios Jamaica from 12/24 - 12/30 . (Our first time to Jamaica ) We used Amstar as our transportation to the hotel . Our driver was semi nice only spoke once . Bus was tiny and super old , run down (Felt closterfobic) especially because it was full. It took 2 hours to get to the hotel. Check in took about 3 minutes (Smooth). Hotel is okay , Not as modern as i visioned . Needs some repairs in some parts . Our room was nice and spacious. Clean Beach & Pool is BEAUTIFUL!!! Nice turquoise waters . The food the first night was Amazing ! (They had all types of food : Seafood , Italian , Mexican , Chinese) The rest of the nights food was ehh okay . Everything was buffet style . Specialty restaurants weren't special to me. Nothing out of this world , Taste of the food was bland as well . The drinks were very sweet and watered down must of the time(Only Jamaican alcohol is available which sucks) The staff was not helpful at all !! Everyone had an attitude especially the woman (The men were busy checking women out) . We were never greeted or asked if we needed anything . Whenever i had a question , to get the answer was like if i was asking for a million bucks (Which was highly annoying) Overall experience was 2.5 out of 5 . We were just happy to get away and be on the beach

What's to Love

No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

There's Red Stripe Beer in the fridge. Every. Day.

The stress-ousting massages and treatments at the Renova Spa. Swoon.

The Jerk Chicken Hut on the beach. You'll be jammin' here ofter. Probably daily.

The phrase you hear everywhere, "No problem, Mon." Go ahead and start practicing.

The epic snorkeling that's right on the beach. Brightly colored fish will make your underwater pics dazzle.

Dunn's River Falls and swimming with the dolphins - close by and always touristy fun.

 

What We'd Change

The drive to the resort will take about an hour, but once you step foot onto the resort grounds, you'll be in love.

 

Why You Should Go

It's so worth it to upgrade to the Deluxe Wing - concierge service 24/7.

You can get a free introductory to scuba lesson in the pool. Dive in!

There are water sports out the wazoo - windsurfing, kayaking and snorkeling.

On land, you can play tennis, volleyball and take an aerobics class.

The entertainment team blows it out, starting with the nightly reggae, steel drums & chill beats.

The botanical gardens of Canbrook aren't your average "flower forest." It's uber lush.
