#1 - Spend the money on a suite - It's worth it! We were moved to a suite because of the Hurricaine. It was wonderful and definintely the way to go! The housekeepers will take extra special care of you! We had bought beers and supplies in town getting ready for 'Dean'. After a day on the beach we came... More

We stayed at Shaw Park last year for a week. My husband is Jamaican and we have been back to various resorts around the island many times over the years. In May 2007 we returned for a family funeral. This was a difficult time for us which was made easier by the attitude of the hotels' friendly staff who couldn't... More

I was a bit apprehensive when I read some of the previous reviews, especially about the food. All we could say at every meal was, "how could anyone complain about the food?" It was great! The highlights were the proximity to the beach (when we looked at the massive 900 room hotels the beach was nowhere to be seen), smaller,... More

First off, I travel a good amount and have much faith in this website, researching resorts much more than I should before arriving. So I know the importance of customer reviews... That said, this resort was great. Friend and I were there from 03/09 - 03/12 and had an absolutely grand time, just what we needed... relaxation and sun. If... More

First of all, got to the airport with my brother and expected to see a proper bus waiting to pick up the guests - I got the shock of my life to see an old looking bus that should be parked in a scrap yard. Anyhow, the journey to Shaw Park was great! Got to the hotel around 12:20 P.M.... More
