Overall, Rose Hall has a lot going for it:
Twenty minutes max to the airport.
If you're looking for a vanilla vacation with no surprises either good or bad this might be the place.
A few caveats on my review:
I'm not a fan of all-inclusive hotels. It has been my experience that there is an emphasis on quantity over quality. The Rose Hall Suites were no exception.
I didn't go with any intent on checking out the entertainment which is a big draw for many of the guests so I can't speak to that at all.
Basically I was there for a three day break with my college-bound daughter. We read by the pool most days and were not interested in partying.
Accommodations: Very nice. Clean rooms. Spacious and well appointed. Wifi great in room. Wifi very good on pool deck. Other exterior locations almost non-existent for most part.
Had a good massage in the spa. A tad on the pricey side but not enough to be a deal killer.
Staff: Mostly very helpful to extremely helpful with one exception I am not going to discuss in this review because it was the result of a reservation modification that 99.9% of you probably won't experience.
Food: Breakfast was strong. Some traditional island fare. A couple omelet stations. All sorts of breakfast meats and fish. Mediocre pastry. Yogurt, fresh fruit. Something for everyone.
Lunch was okay...many of the same brunch foods from breakfast and more lunch type choices. Deli meat, cheese tray...I recommend going to one of the smaller venues serving lunch rather than the large one in the main hotel.
Dinner: Nothing to write home about. Went to Japanese place one night...kinda Benihana vibe. Aunt Ruby's Steak house one night...okay but nothing to make your heart race. Can't remember the other place. Bottom line: don't go to one of these places because you're a foodie or expecting a memorable meal and you'll be fine.
Bottom line: if you have a limited budget and want easy this might be ideal.
