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

Thank you for your feedback. It is true, mattress firmness is a matter of personal preference, but that being said, I apologize that we were not able to provide an adequate solution to your problem. We will be working with our Housekeeping Team to investigate other possibilities. We are glad, however, to hear that you enjoyed Orient Bay and our... 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

Alamanda is a lovely hotel, but not a resort in the sense of size, dining and bars.We have stayed 4 times and we do so for its great location almost adjacent to orient beach and it's proximity to Orient Village. The rooms are great all have a balcony and a mini kitchen with refrigerator, stovetop and microwave. The pool is... More

We were looking for a hotel on the beach in Orient Bay and were a little confused by descriptions and placements on maps. This hotel is around a 20 second walk to the beach, but technically not "on the beach". Rooms are simple and clean. I would have rated this 5 star except the common complaints that the beds need...

Friends of ours had recommended Amanda Resort. We are so glad that we took the recommendation and stayed here. The resort is right across from the beach. You just need to cross a small sandy access road. If you stay at this resort your beach chairs are free at Orient Bay beach. The staff at Alamanda are very helpful and... More

The best thing about this hotel is the location. The beach is just across a small Sandy drive from the hotel. There was some seaweed on the beach, but it wasn't too bad. The chairs provided at Kakao were fine, but they didn't offer us drink service. We had lunch there, and the food was very good. There are also... More
