The worst experience of my life staying at a hotel especially an all inclusive. Limited choice of food you are serve three meals a day that's it. Liquor is not good they used the cheapest They can find. They serve you box wine that tasted like soap. The Toilets didn't flush properly.

We were due to stay 5 days at this hotel. The blurb on the website looked great right up out street. However when we got there is was a different story. In short, no buffet was on offer just able to order from a couple of choices on the menu, no evening entertainment, we were nt given the room we... More

I recently went on a day trip to Shaw Park and it was fabulous . I had lunch which was delicious and the staff were very friendly and accommodating . The place is incredibly clean , very pretty and the beach is amazing.

My husband and I returned to Shaw Park for the 2nd time the week of April 10-17th and once again were not disappointed. We have been to several resorts in Mexico, DR, and Cuba but were very happy to be able to return to our favorite location. As noted in other reviews the hotel probably does need upgrading however I... More

We spent two nights at this all inclusive hotel in March 2015. Firstly the not so good parts, the rooms are old and need a refresher. Older styles CRT TV's (the ones in our kids room buzzed), a bit of mold on the ceiling tiles in one bathroom and sockets that couldn't fit a hair dryer. To get an electrical... More

We were there for about 1 1/2 hours and it was 1 1/2 hours too long!! The pics in the website do NOT give... More

Hotel is in a great location directly on a private beach – that's the only good thing. Room small and in need of renovation, like whole place! Lunch and dinner almost always chicken - Jamaican way, with bones and furred. Food presentation below standard from knobby dishes Almost every night live music which was a nightmare, because they played so... More

When we booked this trip it was a spur of the moment and unfortunately had second thoughts afterwards. But after reading review after review we decided to go and get our own opinion. First off, the hotel is a little run down and needs some updating. If you don't mind faded paint and 70's carpet, this resort is nothing but... More

We spent a week at Shaw Park, and we loved our time there. The reviews are so incredibly mixed on this place, it is either for you or it isn't. Do your research before you stay anywhere and read between the lines. This hotel was refreshing for us since it was, in a positive way low key and down to... More
