It is obvious that Shaw Park was once a nice resort. It's current state of repair limits one's enjoyment of a grand setting. First the positives: Weather was great. Comparably small, quiet property with all rooms on the beach with oceanview. Sandy beach (daily maintenance) is private with no vendors. The room was kept clean, had a comfortable bed, tv... More

From. start to finish the hotel was perfection.We really didn't know what to expect and Jamaica was so beautiful we felt like we had landed in paradise. We were beside ourselves at the standard of the food and services, i'm a health freak and there was fresh lovely fish everyday and great vegetables and fruit... the friendliness and immense charm...

I love the staff and the friends i have made at Shawpark. This small resort is relaxing and a blast because the people there cater to your needs.Also for returning guests they really spoil you.I will always stay there and i deeply appreciate the warmth i get every year. SEE YOU SOON.......... Patricia Klinker and Barb Ganser

Rooms range from standard, in the older part of the hotel, to superior in the new block and suites which are enormous and would suite a party of four sharing.... More

Yes its an older hotel with a few little maintenence issues and obviously not a five star hotel, but then you dont pay five star prices... More

Shaw park was an aweful mess. The rooms smelt old and musty the so call balcony was unclean and need ed lots of work done to it. The chairs and tables where they serve their guests were moldy, filthy and in dire need of a paint job. The front desk staff were rude and unhelpful. My family and I will... More
