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

We spent 2 weeks at the resort starting the end of March. The resort is dated but clean. All of the rooms are on the beach and it was lovely at night to listen to the waves. The staff are amazing, very friendly and will go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The beach is clean but... More

Many thanks for your recent review following your stay at Shaw Park. Your comments are much appreciated especially your kind comments about the staff. The hotel is older in style and quite with just occasional evening entertainment. Managing expectations is one of the hardest aspects in the hospitality business so your comments in your final paragraph are indeed very apt.... More

Thank you so much for your recent review. The broken water main issue is hopefully now close to being repaired by the authorities - as you point out this is well beyond our control. Our beaches and the guest rooms proximity to the sea and sand are real winners for guests. Many of our staff have been here sometime now... More

I went in to this hotel knowing what I was kind of in for from reading other posts. The place is dated but maintained well. The staff were very friendly and the beaches were always clean. It is a very, very quiet resort. We had no evening entertainment after dinner. Dinner is served from 7-9pm after you are done that... More

My wife and I spent nice 10 days in March in Shaw Park Beach Hotel. The greatest advantage of this place is its location. It is nice to see the sea right from the room’s window and be just a few steps from the shore. The beach is not too big, but always clean, with many sun beds, the water... More
