Enjoyed being so close to the public beach and meeting the vendors and watermen. Stayed two nights as part of a challenging bicycle tour, the Jamaica Reggae Ride.
Felt really, really safe. Staff went out of their way to serve. I would give ten stars, if possible, when I count how many times I and I demanded service, and got it quite quick.
On arrival, having biked from MoBay, was tired. Even though many guests arrived at the same time (our 20 plus a bus), not only were the keys distributed promptly, but the doorman even showed I to my room and prepared the closet. Doorman was a model of efficiency.
Were the keys programmed properly for a multi-night stay? Not exactly, but that is easily corrected by the 24 hour staff at this smallish property. On a scale of 1 to 10, a 0.001 issue.
I and I planned to ride to Port Antonio after our first night, and wanted an early breakfast. Other properties should take notice: How much goodwill can be gained by setting out the baked items at 7 instead of 7:30? Tremendous amount, I am quite sure. And they hit that again, when I and I had to prepare an early bus after our second day.
Odd, but I liked the TV for a simple reason: the channels switched quick with front panel controls, so I could check weather quickly. Heard the Internet was slow, but I was off the air, on purpose.
Dryer was $5 a load, but worked. As with other properties in Jamaica, the guest laundry is also the house laundry, but the job got done. Had to go behind the "staff only" door to get towels, but who really cares, in the end analysis.
The bosswoman of the bike tour needed some photocopies, in the view of the I and I guests, and the front desk people let that happen, allowing I to come into their back office to get the job done.
The most important point of this property is that it is one of the few not yet all-inclusive. The gluttony is appalling elsewhere, with folks needing to pass by a row of overweight people, all with a fork in their hand, with a big piece of meat.
