First, this is a 1980's motel with a Hotel name! The beds are awful, all mattress springs are punctuate on your body! The bathrooms originals, you could imagine!! There is nothing to do, except the Continental Breakfast, with Tang orange juice. No restaurants in the hotel, no internet on the rooms. Only a good private beach (access fee $6); public... More

We stayed a couple of nights and found it to be okay but not great. The pool is cold and deep so no good for kids. The beaches across the busy road are beautiful but fenced, and you have to pay to get in. No restaurant and the free rum punches at the bar were a joke. You would have... More

I am a seasoned traveler and decided to celebrate the New Year in Jamaica. This was a short trip. Just 3 nights. This was my 1st time staying at this hotel. This hotel is perfect for a single person or couple on a short trip to Jamaica. If you have a family with small kids you might want to stay... More

No free access to beaches 2. The bathrooms need some minor upgrades. It's in viewing distance of Magaritaville and Cliff Casino. Many food spots in the vicinity as well. I was very... More

At every moment in this hotel, I was thinking that somehow I have too high expectations. For starters, towels were not in the room as I would expect and I had to walk to the reception for them. Safe box cost $3 per night and $80 deposit - something I did not expect (one more trip to the receptionist). I... More

Stayed here one night before moving to our resort down the road. Nothing great here. No beach access(except across the street and down a little but you have to pay to get on the beach), no ocean view, bed and pillows are laughably terrible (in standard room), but overall if you need a place to rest your head for a...

Located on the 'Hip Strip' and right opposite the gorgeous Doctor’s Cave Beach. Rooms are spacious and cleaned daily. The suite is the best as you get a separate lounge and kitchen. Great value and very friendly staff!

I stayed here one night before heading to Kingston. Arrived around 7 pm and there were already 6 men in the lobby with a 40 oz of Red Label whiskey and a 2L bottle of coke (of their own) drinking and dancing. Apparently they had been there for 2 months doing construction work. There was such rude and disrespectful actions... More
