Great time -- first time to Jamaica and loved it. Would definately go back. Hotel was great! Read numerous reviews prior to booking and all were great - none of them let me down.
Didn't like that we couldn't tip - there is a strict no tipping rule at this hotel. They all deserved big tips though. Tip for anyone going - bring tip money for outside the resort. Once you leave the resort, you will need to tip your bus drivers and tour guides, I didn't know this until I got there. $3-$5 USD was given to each. This applied even to the excursions that were offered by the hotel. I am sure that you could not tip, but most on the bus were. There were people that felt bad, as they didn't bring any money with them, but had they known they would have left something.
Would definately recommend this place to anyone that would listen to me. Nice mix of age groups. Lots to do it you wanted to do some activities, and if you preferred to do nothing - it was quite enough to enjoy that too. The staff were fantastic! Can't say enough good things!
You're missing out if you don't stay here.
