This was an economical place, extremely nice location but the hotel rooms I had smell funny and unkept. The front desk agent (female) had bad attitude and my stay just was ruined. Just need to take care of the place and it would be a better experience. The rooms had a lot of Mosquitos.

Perfect for my in and out trip. Just stayed one night before heading on to another area. Close but not too close to the busy strip. Rooms clean. A/c worked well. Breakfast was included. It was quiet during my stay but I can see how this could be a party hotel. Staff was nice and helpful.

Spent 1 week at Donway. Very friendly staff and a safe hotel(!) Clean rooms with good space. Simple breakfast. Wifi in the lobby area. Located in the end of the Hip Strip. 1 minute walk to the beach. 15 minutes walk to downtown Montego Bay. Would recommend Donway to other travelers.

Nice location on the hip strip. Simple but nice rooms, air condition, wifi, safe, good beds. Lovely staff. On the minus side, the breakfast and general food of the hotel restaurant was disappointing. Very simple and low quality.

This place is run by crooks! They do not offer WiFi as advertised. The service for anything is slow. If you order food, do not except to receive your food any time soon. I reserved a room for a week here. After staying 2 days and realizing how bad the service was and that the male staff were harassing me,... More

I was planning to get a room here and thank God I did not. I was hungry so I stopped at the restaurant before checking in. Our food took forever. They had only one person serving, taking orders and cleaning tables. They took forever with our food and messed the order up. I ordered stew chicken they brought jerk. I... More

Great new smaller hotel in Montego Bay, Jamaica. The rooms, linens and bathrooms were very clean and that is the #1 thing I look for in any where I stay. I will be returning on my next trip for sure. I travel a great deal and this is for the person mainly who likes cleanliness, safely venture out for some... More

On the surface this boutique hotel looks impressive - the rooms are very clean with a smart contemporary appearance. However, our trip was marred when our $50 deposit was retained due to damages, which we firmly belief was caused by previous occupant(s) and not picked up in the checks by staff prior re-letting the room. There is nothing to indicate... More

I like the resort and I loved my room, was just right but then it all got ruined when I was looking for a microwave and refridgerator that was actually suppose to be in my room based on what was read on the welcome letter. And I quote "Our Luxurious rooms come with refridgerator and microwave" now I looked in... More
