The hotel itself is nice enough. Not 5 stars by any means but as a good, convenient location for the strip it's fine. Rooms are clean but we had to switch from our first room because the lights didn't work 😊 Otherwise we were happy enough. We didn't spend so long in the rooms due to the location! There are...

Friendly staff, who gave good tips on things like local attractions and directions. Great service, easy access to shops and entertainment. Great time hanging out on balcony looking out at ocean across the street. The pool was a hit with the kids, our room was clean, comfortable and had all the amenities (iron, blow dryer, cable, internet). Cannot wait to...

You really get what you pay for at this hotel. The AC was not fully functional in the room, the breakfast is not buffet style and you get one plate of food and the menu is the same every day. You won't get an extra drop of juice for your free breakfast. Don't expect any cereal or bagels or anything...

We apologise for the inconvenience we caused you. As you might understand however, air conditioning units, being electro-mechanical, can malfunction and/or fail at any time. we consider that the judgement of our service delivery is how quickly we remedy the situation after it's reported to us. We have been changing all our units to brand new "inverter" units for better...

Good morning, We apologize for the inconvenience we caused you to experience while staying with us. We are aware of the room in question where a small window was removed in order to stop what used to be constant complaints about noise from a pump outside that room. We have taken a decision to replace a fixed sound resistant window...

We moved around Jamaica with 5 main stops/hotels and this was our last stop to be close to MBJ airport. Usually use Toby's Resort (also good) but this pool is bigger (though yes they could keep on it more to clear pool of leaves and maintain with cleansing during night so guests can use when they get up).

The room was clean and AC was good. The bathroom was upgraded. The pool was a bit dirty and there was no skimmer for us to pull out the leaves and bugs. The photos of the pool must be photoshopped because its not dark blue and the grass is actually sand. Great location with easy access to the hip strip,...

NO the picture of the pool is NOT photo-shopped. It is however a bit dated. We used to have the area grassed and changed it to create a "beach feel" with sand instead of grass. We are paying closer attention to the early morning skimming of the pool. We apologize for the inconvenience caused in that respect.
