Food: a lot of it was quite good but it's a small buffet for every meal. Choices are limited and a bit repetitive so not a place for picky eaters. As long as the weather is good you eat outside right at the ocean, not stuck in a huge buffet restaurant a km from the water like big resorts and... More

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

Dear Ulf S. Thank so much for your recent visit and we were indeed grateful to have you as our special guest at this Resort in Ocho Rios. We know that the Hotel is somewhat "old and not very modern' but it is still regarded as an "old charm of Ocho Rios" and the colonial style is regarded as one... 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

Vandalbutz of Edmonton, Alberta. Thanks for your review that we received yesterday and although your expressions were frightening and somewhat cavalier, you have stated that "Resort - offers extremely poor value for money". Ultimately you were dissatisfied with our services !. You have indicated that the Food was bland, not many choices & lack creativity and the Drinks were cheap... 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 It is not a huge resort but the hotel is outdated and in need of repair.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.

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
