Damion Morgan, Kaydian and Richard (supervisor) in the Picasso restaurant provided excellent service; as did the head chef at the Jerk Centre - the jerk chicken was fantastic and if you like your jerk extra spicy try the "hell fire" jerk sauce. Overall the food was good, lots of choice. Loved the traditional Jamaican breakfast through to the prime rib dinner. Mikado was the only disappointing restaurant - the sushi was not good. All the other restaurants were good.
Our room was spacious with a good size, private balcony. The room was clean and location was very quiet (24100 block). Also, the maid provided different towel designs every day - nice touch.
The Don Pablo beach area will be great (even fantastic) in 5 years, when the palm trees have grown taller and the sand is deeper. Right now it is good. There were plenty of loungers and we were always able to find a shaded spot. Grounds staff kept beach area clean and tidy. The water was clear and it was a very safe area to swim. Fish were visible very close to shore, no need to even use snorkel gear. Beach-bar service by Tamara and Marveleaux was first rate.
We were disappointed with the service at the front desk and by the senior staff in the Don Pablo management office. We felt as though we were interrupting them when we had questions, rather than the staff being there to be help us. All the other staff, from restaurant staff to security guards, were friendly and helpful.
If we were planning an all-inclusive Jamaican vacation again, we would go back.
