I stayed here with a bunch of friends in February for a week and we had a great time.
We had a lot of fun with the locals and in the local bars. Did some tours and we were happy to have Sophie escort us on the trips. She worked hard with our group to see that we were as comfortable as possible.
The pool was a bonus and well maintained.
We did find the current weak and some times things did not charge up, but we realize it can be a problem in Jamaica.I feel sorry for the family that mentioned the robbery. Again, there are many crimes of opportunity in Jamaica and given the level of poverty I am surprised there isn't more. Have also heard of people getting robbed in 5 star hotels.
I doubt very much it was in "inside job" as mentioned. There is no security there so you take your chances. I just told my friends not to bring anything they could not afford to loose and that included large amts of cash.
That person's experience aside, we had a blast! Been to Jamaica many times and this was probably my favorite.
Just want to mention that if you leave a tip for anyone do not put it on the credit card, the owner keeps it. We ate at a pizza place close to Burbon beach and the owner would not give the 40.00 usd tip to the waitress.
Anyway, we had a blast and plan to return
