The hotel is empty and too quite! It could have been a library. Everything in there is so old. the room we got had ants... More

The hotel security was absent most nights and spare room keys behind the reception was left without staff manning the desk, late in the evening. Nobody was guarding the entrance to the hotel drive. This is a serious security risk! The cleaning staff were quite rude to me but i think that she took a dislike to me requesting laundry... More

6 months ago, I wanted to look at this hotel as an option for a wedding venue. It had been many years since my family had been, and didn't know what to expect. We waited for awhile for the wedding coordinator to meet us before we couldn't wait anymore and eventually left. No one else would show us the property.... More

My family and I spent last week of June and first week of July 2014 at the Shaw Park. Something should be done to prevent those cats running around the hotel especially in the dining area. You are greeted by an impressive lobby area. The bedrooms are in need of modernisation but they are scrupulously clean and well maintained. You... More

Myself and my family visited this hotel in 2008 and to come and read the reviews and see it is 99% negative is not shocking, though I'd have thought things would have changed over a 6 year gap. During our stay I remember our toilets to be leaking, food being stale and my family members having been told when arrived... More

We had a large group who went on an office trip to Shaw Park Hotel last year. It is obvious that many, many years ago, this was once a great property, but now it has got to be one of the most rundown hotels that you will find. It is such a pity, as the location is fantastic with an... More

Stopped here as part of the Best of Jamaica tour on Royal Caribbean. We had a nice Jamaican buffet although the staff wasn't thrilled about serving us so it was more serve yourself, get your own water, etc. Bar staff was eager to sell over priced Jamaican beer. The beach was nice and relaxing. The cruise along the coast was... More
