The room views are great, as is the daily and nightly musical entertainment. We enjoyed the beach, close proximity to shops and the airport. The food is all you can eat, but frankly I did not find the meals that enjoyable. I'm Jamaican and was disappointed in the lack of traditional offerings, though Saturday night is "Jamaica night" and has... More

The experience began right at the airport where we were greeted and... More

We were at the RDMB from July 4- July 8. The resort is beautiful and very clean. The first two days were fabulous, but unfortunately Hurricane Dennis began heading our way, and the hotel had to take safety measures for the guests' safety. The last two days were rainy and windy, but at least we were safe. ROOMS- We were... More
