Shaw Park Beach Hotel is an old worn all inclusive hotel, about two kilometers outside of Ocho Rios. The rooms were quite large and had a sea view. Most of the beach in front of the hotel had been eaten by the sea but there was a piece of beach that stretched from the hotel until a river. The hotel... More

We have visited many resorts over the years in various countries, Cuba, Mexico, Dominican, Grenada, St. Lucia, etc etc.and have never experienced such poor service, terrible food along with a very tired and run down resort.There was some very rude employees who added misery to the experience. I understand the business model that the hotel requires in order to sustain... More

We recently spent a week at this resort. It is not a huge resort but the hotel is outdated and in need of repair. This did not matter as the hotel was quite clean. The only area for wi fi was in the lobby and a lot of guests spent there time there. We upgraded to a 2 bedroom which... More

We recently stayed at Shaw Park for a week. The staff was friendly, the food was excellent. There were 3 buffet meals a day, always a variety ( and I'm pretty fussy) . It's an older resort but in good condition every room is waterfront. Clean rooms, comfortable beds and a hot shower. No complaints. We will definitely go back.

We got married at Shaw Park on Valentine's day. Was our first trip there and definatly not our last. The staff were great, Willy, Dillan (up and running), Speedy, Cheryl, And of course Smiley!! And all the other staff made our trip awesome. We met a lot of great people there. Highly recommend.

I stayed at Shaw Park for a week during my 1st visit to Jamaica in 2006. The hotel is old yes, but it's decent for the price. I was there for r&r and that's exactly what I got. The food was good, service was good and being able to be lulled asleep by the sea was fantastic. My TA selected... More

Just returned from a week-long stay (Jan/Feb 2015), and felt it appropriate to add our opinion after reading all the negative stuff. We booked a last-minute trip through Red Tag vacations, and feel we got excellent value for what we paid. Granted, the place is a bit tired. But the food was great, the staff was super-friendly and helpful, the... More

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
