My Husband and I have just returned from this holiday booked for 2 weeks on the above date. when we booked this hotel, we did not read the reviews before we booked and when we read the reviews we were very worried! but as soon as we got to the Hotel we loved the place, it was simply beautiful, the whole place is very big, lovely land-scaped gardens. the food was always fresh with lots to choose from, and the rooms big and very clean. we were in the first block, which was near to everything, pools, food, all activities, a word of warning for those who do not walk well, there is no lifts, and accommodation can be very far away and up lots of stairs. The air conditioning does not really work instantly, you have to leave it on all day so that when you do return to the room it is reasonably cool. we had a lovely room attendant/maid who looked after our rooms for us with lots of towel decorations, her name was Melina. there was an incident were i sat in a freshly painted chair that was still damp from paint and it came onto my blouse, which the manager Maria cleaned and returned to me the same day which i was grateful for. All the staff were very friendly and polite, the best time was breakfast as i found the breakfast staff to be extra good. My only gripe is that they had a nightly Disco that started 11.00pm to 2.00pm we went there at least 3 to 4 times, on each occasion the DJ played really rubbish old commercial chart music, really cheesy non Reggae music i really complained to everyone about it as most people come to Jamaica for the Reggae music and we do come from countries that play up to date Reggae music and we are not stuck in the YMCA time zone! which was one of the songs he played! apart from this we really got no real up to date music which if ur a music lover was horrible. apart from this and the over expensive Taxi rates the Taxi charged all visitors we had a great time. we are a very young 40s couple.
