Just returned from our second vacation at Shaw Park. We has a wonderful time. The Staff was very friendly and we had great service. I agree that the Hotel needs improvements, but over all the food was really good, and the accomodations were clean and located right on the Beach. After reading all the negative posts, all I can say... More

We went to Shaw Park from Feb.2 to Feb.8 2014. I am writing this review after reading all the negative reviews posted lately and I had not written about our last stay. Well, about the cruise ships, we did not see any change in the food quality or choice. It was good as always. Although, we did notice the night... More

I wanted to rest and destress, Shaw Park was the perfect place to do this. The hotel has all the amenities you need, beachfront, swimming pool, water activities, a disco, a spa and my favorite full body massages right on the beach. The king sized bed in my room might have been the best I have ever slept on. The... More

We booked this hotel for our moon and we were extremely disappointed when we first stepped into the resort. We arrived at 1030pm, tired and hungry. When we asked reception where we could get something to eat we were told everything was closed and they couldn't get us anything. We were escorted to our room when we got there it... More

Where do I start......The carpet walking to the room on the stairs was not attached and hanging off. It is a wonder I did not fall down the stairs. The rooms smell and there is rust everywhere. The deck railing fell off when I put my foot on it. The food for the breakfast omelet smelled and tasted like fish... More

We have just returned from The Shaw Park Hell! This is the most disgusting, nasty, deplorable so called resort....couldn't even classify itself as a motel! Shaw must stand for Trailer in Jamaica because we were in a trailer park from hell for a week. Never in my life have I been excited to come home from a vacation! Let's start... More
