The Shaw Park Hotel is definitely not one for young holiday makers. I'm 23 and along with 3 of my fellow 23 year old friends booked our holiday to Jamaica for a 2 week stay at Shaw Park. When we arrived in Jamaica on September 20th 2006 and got on the transfer bus to the hotel with other holiday makers.... More

Once you go you know is the appropriate Jamaican slogan since the immediate sense of being unsafe you get from this amazingly beautiful Lush Island is that the people of Jamaica are Racist or they hate tourist. Shaw park hotel management staff were very accommodating polite and courteous. But some of the waiters of this all-inclusive are quite bold and... More

We have just returned from the Shaw Park Beach Hotel. Upon arrival we received cool lemon scented towels to cool off from the long bus ride from the airport. The check in process went very smoothly except when we went to our rooms they were not acceptable for the party, we return to the desk to get this sorted on... More

My husband & I booked a last-minute trip to Jamaica, and we chose the Shaw Park because of the reviews we had seen posted on other sites that said what a great place it was to relax. They were right! We spent most every day on the beach with no one close by except the water sports guys, Cecil and... More

We stayed at the hotel for the first 2 weeks in July and had a great time. It was very relaxing with a wide variety of food and very friendly and helpful staff. We loved the greeting when we arrived with hot towels and a drink. We didn't like the first room we were offered as there was a distinctly... More

Have just retruned from spending a week at Shaw Park. Everything was okay. The staff were frendly and helpful. Rooms were spacious and clean with plenty of fresh towels, shower gel etc every day. After three days I felt like a local. The only problem was the tour desk rep who kept asking us about trips. We explained that we... More

We arrived to mimosas and a quick check in. The property has lovely views and foliage. What I also needed was a clean room, air-conditioning, electricity, eatable food and drinks. If this property was refurbished it would be beautiful. Refurbishment would great but that would not fix the staff attitude and lack of attention to detail. It was always hurry... More

We just returned from the Shaw Park Beach Hotel. We thought the hotel was okay but we don't plan to return. The rooms were clean, the view was beautiful and the staff worked very hard. One nice thing about the place is that all of the rooms have a beach view and the first floor rooms open to the beach.... More

A "throwback" to 1976...dull tennis courts...bad magic shows and subtle racism. To be fair, the accommadations were pretty nice. But we literarally were alone with one other couple and a stuffy church group the whole vacation...It was dusty and boring. I left my toothbrush in Negril....BIG MISTAKE....Shaw Park didn't have any complimentary ones and the gift shop opened very late... More
