We stayed here one night before heading off to Negril for a week at another resort. We arrived at 9:00 pm and left by 9:00 am. I'm used to the all inclusive resorts so this was a bit strange. It's a small resort in the middle of MoBay.
First off, hookers greeted us when we climbed off the shuttle. No big deal but not ideal. The girl behind the desk checked us in fast and a security guard took us to our room. Lots of security, locks on everything. That's good and bad, if you know what I mean. Room was oppressively hot and stuffy so the guard/bellhop turns on the air conditioning, this old, little window unit that had seen better days...like the 1960's. It was going to be a long night...or so we thought.
We went to the restaurant, an open air place by the pool. After all day on a plane, we're spent. We order salads, wings and water. Service is typical Jamaican, slow but reliable. Waiter brings water, then ten minutes later, salads with dressing in the plastic bottle. It's Jamaica. 15 minutes later, wings come. They are fantastic! Covered in hot, spicy sauce. We're happy.
Back at the room, all the way in the back up stairs with a view of the building next to the resort, it's not only cool, it's icy cold. Have no idea how that rickety old AC unit pointed at the TV did that but it did. The bed was comfy and it was honestly really quite. We slept well, showered in the darn clean bathroom and left for Negril.
Can't recommend for a longer stay since we didn't experience much but for a single night, it's probably the best you can expect for around a hundred bucks. Decent food, quiet and despite the hookers and security, we never felt unsafe. Gave it four stars because I can't give it 3.5. It is what it is, a budget resort. Probably great for young couples or college kids.
