I stayed at the RP for Christmas 2004. I could not have expected any better. I am slightly dumbstruck at the criticisms in some of the other reports. It is a first class resort and you are so absorbed you could quite easily stay without straying outside the hotel. This is Jamaica so expect life to be more laidback - you are on holiday. The rooms are special - all sea views with four poster beds. The guests tend to be slightly older, but I have never found that a problem, despite my younger years. The staff are very friendly. Service at the beach is second to none. The restaurants are different in their own way and I did experience lukewarm food on more than one occasion, but did not complain. Be prepared for a long, uncomfortable ride if you decide to take a taxi - I would definately recommend flying to Ocho Rios airport and spending more relaxing time at the hotel. The hotel spa and gift shop are excellent too - we had a truly amazing Christmas!
