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

We arrived at this resort in pouring rain. Immediately we can tell that this little place is more for dry weather. But we just needed a little 1 night stop over hotel since the next morning we will be on our way to Montego Bay. But what I didn't realized is that when you booked but you don't pay till... More

We booked the hotel through booking.com, arrived at the hotel at 8 PM after a long drive from Negril and learned that our reservation had been cancelled, as starting from 4 PM all the rooms not currently occupied are released.
