    Great Jamaican holiday

    1st time visiting Jamaica and was highly enjoyable. Arrival- staff were quick and efficient took all requests on board. Room- 2 lovely double beds, ended having a bed each. What a treat. Comfy and clean bedding. Room was spacious, plenty of storage space. Maid service was fantastic and loved the towel arrangements. Food & drink- could not go hungry or thirty here. The A La Carte restaurants were fantastic. Staff work so hard. Only down side was 1st come 1st serve no reservation system. Jerk chicken on the beach was stunning.The bar staff work hard sometimes serving several customers at a time. Facilities- large pools water a lovely temperature to cool off in after lazing in the Jamaican sun. Only downside of the pool is the one with the swim up bar could get dirty due to people spilling drinks. Beach was lovely to walk along. Staff- always happy and helpful. The lady who runs the night shift in the sports bar andthe young lady on the day shift in the lobby bar who made us a special mango drink. Totally tasty Jamaican flavours (rum, mango). General- water shopping to the left was an amazing experience and one I have not encountered before. Coconut on the beach was a highlight. All in all an amazing trip and experience!

    Enjoyable Winter Get-A-Way

    The hotel is all inclusive and we enjoyed it very much. The restaurants were nice. The rooms were nice. The pool was nice. The beach is in a bay area and was mostly calm. A tad bit dirty but no fault of the hotel. They did a good job keeping the beach area clean and raked. The showers were OK. A little small. Service was above par and the food and drinks were great. We are a non-alcoholic couple so the virgin Miami Vice drinks were the best we've had in years. The only drawback was there are no local establishments nearby that you can walk to. And the closest hot spots are several miles away. But, we enjoyed and would go back.
