I have stayed here twice over the last 5 years. I hear there is new management and things
are improving since. Here are my Pros and Cons
Great location ,quiet walkable beach with no hagglers.
very calm waters, shallow
resort is not that huge, so all ammenties are easy walking distance
Impressive lobby and lounge areas
you can bring your kiddies and its safe.programs available
Good jerk chicken
Nice average rooms.
Good friendly service
Average quality food....
stocked mini bar, but not high end spirits.
some rooms are right at the rear of resort facing employee quarters...unattractive and noisy.
Food was not exceptional....just average.
Not advise for adults with no kids. Better stay at an all adults resort for better rest and relaxation.
Beds could be softer
pushed together for king.....
bedding a little rough...
no decent wines
Always ask for a room closer to the beach or pay for an oceanview upgrade or you may be stuck
way at the back of the hotel.
Overall good value if you pay around $1,500 per person all in. Not worth any more.
My next stay will be right in Negril on 7 mile beach in a basic room . Looking forward to a most
wonderful gastronmic experience of my life going a la carte from the little beach hut restaurants
to the cliffs.....no more jailed in all inclusives for this dude...at least in Jamaica.
