Stopped here as part of the Best of Jamaica tour on Royal Caribbean. We had a nice Jamaican buffet although the staff wasn't thrilled about serving us so it was more serve yourself, get your own water, etc. Bar staff was eager to sell over priced Jamaican beer. The beach was nice and relaxing. The cruise along the coast was... More

Then a very dirty pool, algie, bugs,... More

We spent 2 weeks at the resort starting the end of March. The resort is dated but clean. All of the rooms are on the beach and it was lovely at night to listen to the waves. The staff are amazing, very friendly and will go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The beach is clean but... More

Many thanks for your recent review following your stay at Shaw Park. Your comments are much appreciated especially your kind comments about the staff. The hotel is older in style and quite with just occasional evening entertainment. Managing expectations is one of the hardest aspects in the hospitality business so your comments in your final paragraph are indeed very apt.... More

Thank you so much for your recent review. The broken water main issue is hopefully now close to being repaired by the authorities - as you point out this is well beyond our control. Our beaches and the guest rooms proximity to the sea and sand are real winners for guests. Many of our staff have been here sometime now... More

I went in to this hotel knowing what I was kind of in for from reading other posts. The place is dated but maintained well. The staff were very friendly and the beaches were always clean. It is a very, very quiet resort. We had no evening entertainment after dinner. Dinner is served from 7-9pm after you are done that... More

My wife and I spent nice 10 days in March in Shaw Park Beach Hotel. The greatest advantage of this place is its location. It is nice to see the sea right from the room’s window and be just a few steps from the shore. The beach is not too big, but always clean, with many sun beds, the water... More

We spent two weeks in March 2014 at this hotel and felt completely cheated and devalued. The hotel is not as advertised. It is poorly maintained dark and dingy The only good thing I can say about this hotel is that it's on the beach, and the Staff is friendly. Jamaica is a great place to visit but I WOULD... More

I have just returned after a weeks stay at this resort with my husband and whilst I always think I am going to have a great time away this was probably a little like staying at Fawlty Towers. Our bedroom was spotlessly clean with a 60's theme - this is because the hotel was built in the 60's and has... More
