Overall,the Suites resort was a great place for a relaxing vacation. The resort is clean, well kept, and not too big that its exhausting to just walk from one place to the other. While we went for our honeymoon, we should have splurged to stay at the Grand for our honeymoon, but we don't regret our stay at the suites.
The rooms are large and ours had a gorgeous view of the pool and of the ocean. The bathroom was huge, with a double vanity. The shower was dark and had no handles coming in or out of the shower... and we are young and were still worried about slipping! Also, there was no shelving to put a razor or any shower needs inside the shower.
The pools were really nice and easy to relax in. We recommend staying at the smaller pool as it's quieter. The large pool was always really loud with the music they pumped in and the activities they were running (water aerobics, dance lessons, pool games...)
The food-- the main buffet was pretty good! The a la carte 'restaurants' not so good... but service was always on point and helpful. Make sure you get a meal or two at the 'Ruby's steakhouse' during the lunchtime hours, you get a gorgeous view of the ocean while you dine.
Drinks-- great! good quality alcohol and coffee.
Spa-- we got a massage while we were there. massages were expensive!! They were really nice... but expensive. The baths were kinda gross and needed updating-- this includes the 'roman bath' and 'Jacuzzi'...
Next time, while we're still childless, we'd splurge to stay at the Grand. But we would definitely recommend this resort for a young couple, family or extended family stay. The staff was warm and sweet and not overbearing.
If you go, make sure you book a trip on the Dreamer Catamaran cruise and go to Scotchies for dinner. Scotchies is about a $40 RT cab ride-- this is more expensive than the food and drinks you will consume-- but worth every penny. The jerk pork, festival and bammy are a great way to experience real Jamaican food and meet some Jamaicans off the resort.
