First of all: we're quickly satisfied. We travel on a low budget, so please don't take note of this if you're looking for great luxury. Our first evening there was a bit chaotic. It took a long time to check in, the food that night was not quite what we're used to (we're both picky eaters, but we shouldn't complain when we're 8000km away from home), the swimmingpool is really supertiny (au contraire to the picture on the site), you can't walk into the water, you'll have to jump from the cliffs (which aren't that high, we knew this before we booked this hotel, but i'm afraid of deep open water, so i spend my entire week in the pool), ... We booked a gardenside cottage, which was awesome! Tiny, mini bathroom, but a porch with a gorgeous view, and trust me, you won't be spending a lot of time inside (except at noon, around 2pm it starts raining uncontrollably, sometimes our porch would literally flood).
The first morning we woke up around 4am (jetlag!). We went outside (we're two years further now, and i still get goosebumps whenever i think about it). There were hummingbirds everywhere! At this hour it's also lovely outside (temperature).
But I can babble about how beautifull everything around here is for ever! So: the bar is nice, a lot of cocktails (included in all in), a lot of rum, had some great times there at night. Food became better after day 1, i'm still craving Jamaican Dumplings every day (i should learn how to make them), the hotel itself is simple, but you don't need anything else when you're in such a great country. Rick's cafe (worldfamous) is a 5 minute drive away from the hotel (don't try to go on foot, there's too many people who try to sell you stuff on your way ;) ).
I love Jamaica, would go back if i had the money :) Lovely people!
