First off, this is a VERY SMALL & QUIET resort. If you are looking for the ambiance of a bigger resort with lots of night-life, this is not the place for you.This is an older hotel, but the staff is constantly working on manicuring it and keeping it well maintained. This was not our first trip to Jamaica, but our... More

Shaw Park Beach Hotel offers excellent value-for-money for guests who know traditional Jamaican hospitality and want to experience something different from the available North Coast commercial tourism fare. The hotel is part of the original Shaw Park holdings, which includes the Shaw Park Gardens overlooking Ocho Rios on the western hillside of the townsite. The Gardens date from the 1920s.... More

This is a older property but although the ambiance was fair the food offerings were very limited. Hardly any choice and no provision for vegans and persons with gluten allergy. For an all-inclusive there was no iron, drinks, or toiletries(except bar of soap) in the room. The rate per room was just like another hotel that offer these amenities and... More

This should not even be considered a hotel and spa, the "hotel" is decrepit. Our first room was disgusting, located basically on the local beach next door. The air conditioner didn't work, the tv had been stolen! which the front desk was unaware of (shows how often the rooms are occupied or cleaned) the safe door had been ripped off.... More

Rooms are small. The view is fabulous! Not wheelchair friendly. Lots of stair climbing to keep one in shape. Easy access to the beach from the ground floor. Enjoyed the curried goat! It was nice meeting Rachel, Mr. Speed, Willy. Opal and all the others.

Average hotel, quiet, service average, low end 3 star, tired looking hotel. Superior room had no fridge, water, coffee, tea and you had to pay to use the safe. Smallest bathroom with shower only, no shampoo or conditioner. Food was average, hit and miss. House cleaning stole money from my room. Would not return to this hotel.
