We stayed during off season and had the fortune of enjoying a quiet Orient Bay. The staff at the Alamanda was so nice and helpful! The location was excellent as it is located in the middle of Orient Bay and a 2 min walk from restaurants, bars, pharmacy and markets.

This was our first stay at the Alamanda, my husband surprised me with the trip for Christmas and he did the research before he booked. I think I should say that a tent on the beach with an outhouse would have gotten a great rating from us after the NY winter we have suffered through, but I will try and... More

Location is fantastic, it is only steps away from a great beach, a small c-store, and several restaurants. Our room was spacious and clean. The bathroom was a good size with a tub and shower. The included breakfast was fresh and for an additional reasonable cost you could order other well prepared items The pool was nice and clean. Bed... More

We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We feel that having the beach out the front door, and a small village (complete with restaurants and a grocery) outside the back provides everything our Guests require. If there was something that you could not find, we hope you contacted the Front Desk. Thank you for your review, and we... More

Good location and clean but nothing special. As good as any we saw in the Orient beach area. We had some very good service at checkout but at check in a different woman didn't seem to really want to be there. Not rude but not very friendly for that type of job.

Over the years, we stayed multiple times at the Alamanda and we enjoyed it. Based on this last visit, I can't recommend the hotel. Here is why: - Rooms and facilities look tired. Stains on walls, running toilets, very low water pressure, lumpy bed, neglected gardens... - Poor customer service: at checkin we had an employee in training. She ignored... More

The Alamanda is low key with a very friendly staff and a wide white sand beach a few steps out the back door. There are no ocean view rooms, but the rooms are comfortable and spotless with small kitchenettes and large bathrooms. Breakfasts are great and the clientele international. Everyone at the hotel speaks English. Internet is slow in the... More

This was my first stay here. Hard to find a better spot the restaurants out back were fantastic although a little pricey. The beach is great lots of fun bars and restaurants. The only drawback with the beach is its kinda small and half is dedicated to the naked beach and after walking through it once i was good. The... More

There are some good things and some bad things to the Alamanda resort. The hotel is steps away from the orient bay beach which is a great beach. You get 2 free beach chairs and an umbrella from Kakao. It's close to lots of restaurants. The room is basic. It has a small kitchen and little fridge. The bathroom is... More

Alamanda is a decent hotel that is right on the beach. I've stayed at hotels "right on the beach" where it has taken more time to get on the beach than it will take you to cross the lane to get to the beach here. The rooms are decent, could use some new sheets and towels and a coffee maker... More
