Just returned from a reunion vacation with a group of friends. I can't say enough about this hotel. It was my nicest, most relaxing, vacation ever and I have traveled all over Europe, Mexico and parts of Central America. The staff of this hotel is beautiful....inside and out. Everyone from the men raking the beach, to the gardners, to the star friends, to the wait staff, and housekeeping staff, to the bartenders and the waiters were wonderful. Always..took the time to speak, to ask if I was enjoying my stay, to ask if there was anything else that they, personally, could do to improve my stay. Always a beautiful Jamaican smile to accompany all of those yummy Jamaican smiles from the bar. I'm not good with names but I cannot say enough about the young people working at this hotel. They were perpetual motion and perpetual smiles from morning into the late evening. I don't know what Iberostar pays them....but it is not enough. The meals were wonderful and very nicely presented and they kept the wine or the champagne flowing. I would imagine that the guys would prefer the buffets or the surf and turf restaurants for the volume of food....but I loved every meal that I had. I loved the variety at breakfast and lunch and the opportunity to try Jamaican specialties. The Jamaican barbecue on the beach was out of this world. The music in the piano bar every evening was lovely....and I thoroughly enjoyed all of the shows.
I spent very little time in my room....but I slept like a baby in the comfortable bed and very quiet rooms, I loved coming in at night and finding a scented candle, chocolate on my pillow...etc. I appreciated the satelite t.v. as I wound down from the day and enjoyed listening to television española from Spain. The shower was to die for. I am a very private person so I really didn't make use of the butler but the butlers did check with me every day. Another thing I appreciated was when my luggage was lost...the bellman called and let me know it had arrived and brought it right up to me at 11 in the evening so I would have fresh things in the morning.
When I was leaving my room for the last time I had a hug from the housekeeper who wished me god speed and a safe journey home. She made me feel like I was a friend that she would welcome back. The only tiny thing that I would criticize was the lack of air conditioning in the buffet restaurant the one evening I ate there.
All in all I have never felt so pampered. I'll miss the tropical breezes, the song of the crickets in the evening, and the warmth of the Jamaican people who make the Iberostar Grand Rose Hall such a wonderful place to vacation. I'd return in a heart beat!!!! Great Job Iberostar!!!!
By the way...I thought the best drinks came from the bar at the buffet restaurant by the beach.
