I stayed in this hotel for 8 days end of feb/March stayed at this locations. Located downtown Ocho Rios, in the heart of everything. If you want the impersonal All-inclusive holiday - this is not it. If you want some insight into Jamaica and Jamaican hospitality - this is the place for you in this family run hotel. The staff... More

Me and my husband stay there for 5 days in very nice room with a sea view, bed was big and comfortable.The price was the cheapest in Ocho Rios. There is pool and lovely restaurant/bar just by the sea. We just really enjoyed the stay.

After reading some reviews, I was really looking forward to stay at this hotel. I saw some pics and loved the pool/beach view, and of course the price! I thought I had scored a great deal but I was quickly disappointed. As soon as I arrived, I encounter some minor problems. First, the reservation I made through booking.com was less... More

From our first look at the bar area and the fantastic view, we were sold on the hotel. It really is a little gem with bags of potential. It is located in just the right spot, easy access to local resturants and the hotel has its own maestro in the kitchen...J who is an absolute wizard. The staff are friendly... More
