We were in Jamaica for a mission trip and wanted to pull our kids out of the field to give them a little RNR before heading back. We looked online and found this had the best price for our budget. We were unable to book due to the poor internet quality where we were so we went down to the... More

Have not stayed here before and could have been put off by low ratings but pleasantly surprised. Manager introduced himself and could not have been any more helpful, as were all the staff. Our room was good - but the Air Conditioning units are old and I'm not sure we would be happy staying more than a couple of nights.... More

Also, this place sports a rum punch cocktail hour Thursday and Saturday evenings. The breakfast is... More
