Iberostar Grand Rose Hall Questions

Hi All,

Sorry for the doublepost - I just realized I didn't put this in the Rose Hall forum!

I'll be going to the Grand in just under two weeks. I've been to the Grand in Playa Paraiso, and it looks like the restaurant menus are pretty similar. My question is - do any of them have any traditional Jamaican food? If not, is there a Jamaican buffet night? If so, does anyone know what night of the week the Jamaican buffet is?

Also - has anyone used the tennis courts? Just wondering how they are.

Anyone who'd been over the last few weeks - how has the towel game been? Are we gonna have to get up before 8 to secure a spot?

Last question - any building/room recommendations? We booked ocean view, though I am hoping for a upgrade to oceanfront if they are available. :)

Thanks all!!!

We just returned from the Grand on Sunday and had a fantastic time. The towel game was in full force when we arrived but they sent a note out to everyone that this was not going to be tolerated and it did help. The girls around the pool did start removing towels to free up spots. There were still plenty of chairs in the shade by the pool at 8:30 am. There is a section in the buffet of Jamaican food every night. I think I ate jerk chicken every day!! They also have a BBQ on the beach featuring jerk chicken and pork once a week. I think every room has an ocean view of some type so I wouldn't worry too much if you don't get upgraded. Hope you enjoy your stay, we certainly did!!

That's great to hear that they are doing something about the towel game! I don't need a primo spot, but I'm glad to see an all-inc actually taking some action on it. :)

Did you venture into MoBay at all during your trip? Curious as to how much a cab would be.

We took the free shuttle to the Rose Hall Shoppes one day (they come every half hour), and we also did the Catamaran tour to Margaritaville. I believe its $30 for a cab into Montego bay. There is a sign just outside of the lobby with all the cab rates on it.

Oh, good to know about the shops and taxi, thank you!

Do you by any chance know what time the dinner seatings are at the restaurants? I'll be emailing them later in the week to make our reservations.
