This all inclusive beach resort is locally owned so your dollars spent here stay in Jamaica. All the staff are super friendly , the buffet meals are excellent and include Jamaican favorites. There is a swimming pool and you are right on the beach. The rooms are not ritzy but they are very comfortable and air conditioned.

As part of a day excursion from our cruise ship, we were taken to the Shaw Park Beach Hotel for lunch. We had a nice open air cooked lunch on their terrace of BBQ chicken and pork, vegetables, salad, and desert. We then relaxed on their beach. I know nothing of their rooms, but the overall appearance of place is... More

The entrance is very colonial and it would be a nice theme to maintain throughout the hotel. The rooms are themed differently to the remainder of the hotel but are clean and comfortable. I'm guessing the distance to town encourages the hotel to be all inclusive, which for the drinks was fine. The supper menu was limited and didn't appeal... More

The staff at this hotel really try to make their guests happy. The little food they had was not so good except for breakfast which was really on point. The rooms are small but emaculately clean. The all inclusive concept really makes no sense though, the options are next to nothing, the price is too much as you could get... 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
