Pros - Free alcohol from 11am - 11pm if you get the all inclusive package Food was decent but not great. Cons - Extremely outdated hotel. It felt like we were in the 50's. -You will be charged $70 if a guest wants to visit you in the room. Guests are only allowed to visit you in the lobby area.... More

My daughter and I spent a week at this lovely old resort. Not enough time however. We came to rest and unwind and this is the place to be. Management and staff were great - I felt that we were with family. Our travel agent had arranged several interesting and fun things to do and we enjoyed them, but it... More

My partner and I spent two weeks at Shaw Park and loved it. It is not a busy 5* resort where its all rush rush its a quaint delicate traditional hotel. The staff were amazing and helpful. The service was great. My first time in Jamaica and I loved every minute. So much so we are back next year! This... More

This was the worse hotel I have ever stayed at. It treats its customers as good as it treats it's staff....appallingly!! We booked 3 rooms, as a group booking& they put us miles apart from each other. We asked to be put together and they gave us some excuse as to why this couldn't happen. (There was roughly 4 families... More

My partner and I stayed at this beautiful location. The people were friendly, the food was great and very fresh, a very traditional hotel. This hotel is not suitable for children but for adults an amazing experience. The entertainment could do with some updating and the some of the woodwork needs a good coat of paint but that is well...

This is our 4th time at Shaw Park - i choose it for the section of beach it occupies. The hotel sits on one of the best sections of beach in Ocho Rios. The hotel is older, a very British hotel. But it's nice enough. The rooms have been upgraded with new air conditioners, so there was no more nonsense... More

The hotel needs a complete makeover. We had beachfront rooms. The corridor to these rooms are dark and dingy. Rooms were very dated and not much space. Shower room again dated and tiny. No hot water to shower in the morning. Left after one night.

Stayed a week in April. Just plain worn out. There is a charm in the Colonial style areas but mostly dingy and in need of refreshing, repairs and refurbishing. Travelling 5 hours along with saving hard earned money to arrive to find crumbling stone work, dingy walls etc is disappointing. I have travelled world wide from 2 star to 5... More
