Somebody else was paying for this stay, but it is nearly impossible to see the real Kingston from this place. Might have been cool in the 70s, but its a bad hotel breakfast buffet, bathrooms that could use an update or at least a cleaning, and the pool is weird. Its big hard to get into and has an awkward...

I stayed at the Jamaica Pegasus two weeks ago (Feb 2015) for a trip. I stayed five days total. First, remember there is little in good hotel choices in Kingston, so we had to stay at the Pegasus. The rooms are large enough, but the bathroom needs to be re-done to get up to the 90's style at least. Also,... More

This hotel is run down to the bone. It is loud and noisy and is in serious need for refurbishment. The rooms are very average with quiet rooms being a rarity. When I checked in I was first given a room where someone else was already staying! The restaurant service is poor and the quality of the cuisine is below... More

Here for a week on a business trip, and was booked in by my hosts. Hotel is clean, reasonably modern (certainly in the updated rooms) and I have had no problems at all during my stay, except perhaps for the intermittent internet. Breakfast is good, lots of hot and cold choices, great quality, and both local and international choices to... More

The Pegasus is a quality international hotel close to Kingston, with views towards the sea and only 25 mins from the airport. It may be a little dated in some areas, but is the more attractive for it, as it doesn't look like all the other carbon copy hotel chains. It has a great pool, restaurant, a fine 24 hour... More

The Jamaica Pegasus is currently under renovations and what has been completed looks very nice. What hasn't been renovated, is very dated and is showing the wear and tear of old age. The room I stayed in had a thermostat that looked like it was straight out of 1978 and the air conditioning never really worked. The bathroom was very... More

2 trips recently on business. Some of the floors have been renovated and are really nice, clean, with new furnishings. Previously there was an air of must about the place but at least on the renovated floors its in the past. The restaurant service is slow and the food doesn't offer much variety buts for a few days stay its... More

I enjoyed the stay at Pegasus. Very nice, clean and airy rooms with a good view. Good and clean pool and enough space to have small business meetings. The buffet dinner was excellent you can find your food I love jerk chicken( Jamaican specialty). I recommend this hotel to stay for short trip to Kingston

I like this hotel. Stayed here with work for more weeks than I care to remember. The WiFi connection can be hit and miss but you can plug into the Ethernet port in your room. This gives good connection speeds. The staff are great. Food is good. Rooms are clean. The pool is grand. Gym was not great. If I... More

As I write this in response to your review, workmen are overhead laying new cables to upgrade our entire hotel's internet service. Today's assortment of 'smart' devices require a much stronger signal than what was needed a few years back so as we fully upgrade the hotel, internet service is very much in our plans. By the first week in... More
