I stayed at the Grand Pineapple because of it's location in the middle of 7 mile beach. We had a wedding to attend at a much more expensive resort just up the beach. We stayed here 4 nights May 8th to May 12th. After checking in our first room was completely unacceptable. It smelled of smoke (we requested non-smoking and the room was listed as non-smoking) and there was a pool of water on the ground emanating from the bathroom. Although it took 4 visits to the office and complaining to 3 employees they finally moved us to an acceptable room day 1.
Highlights include: uncrowded public spaces, GREAT BEACH, great bar scene at the hotel with countless drink options that pack a punch.
We found the food hit or miss some items were wonderful (tacos and all their fruit) and others were just alright. If you want real Jamaican food leave the resort and go to a local vendor.
In summary, this was an inexpensive and all-inclusive option along 7 mile beach. I would definitely consider coming back.
