We have vacationed in Jamaica for many years and have stayed in the Runaway Bay area 8 times. We are booked for 2 weeks at the GBP, Jan 2 - 16, and after reading all the negative reviews, we still intend to be there. For us the very real problems reported, don't go to the true heart of the overall Jamaica experience and the reduced price that we paid with CheapCaribbean was not "a 5 star" price, but rather more like "a 3 star" price and a bargain at that. In any case if you really do need top level pampering, then certainly do go ahead and make other arrangements, but if you're able to take on a bit of the the island, "not to worry, mon" mindset then come and have a drink and a laugh or two with us. I'll be the bearded guy with the shaved head, enjoying my favorite island. Peace and love, to you all.
