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

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at Shaw Park, I would say that this hotel was nice and relaxing. Their isn't a lot of activities on the resort but they are helpful in coordinating tours for you. We had a great tour of Botanical Garden, shopping in town , ending at Dunn's River Falls which was great, also tour was... More

Stayed at the hotel from the 27th March to April 2nd. Everything was excellent from the minute we arrived to the minute we left. The hotel staff are exceptional at both their jobs and with friendliness. Melissa Rene and Racquel all deserve a special mention. They are so attentive to your every need. The hotel is out of this world... More

Just got back from the Shaw Park - March 2006. If you are looking for a place to relax with awesome staff then this is the resort for you. If you want nightlife with a party crowd, you had better travel somewhere else. The service was great and because the hotel was small everyone seemed to get to know one... More

Our week at the Shaw Park Hotel & Spa was wonderful! This is the place to go if you are looking for a quiet retreat on the beach. It is a place of relaxation and rejuvination. It is a hotel in the European-style spa genre. The property is beautifully maintained, and it lies on a private beach within a secluded... More

Shaw Park might not suit everyone but if you are looking for a relaxing pace and are prepared to ‘go with the flow’ then this is the place. The service was not always quick but unfailingly polite. The staff were helpful, courteous and friendly. Meals were usually a buffet but there were always a number of choices, including tasty local... More

We were married at Shaw Park about a month ago. We had a wonderful time. The resort was lovely and the beach beautiful. The best thing of all was the service. The management took care of us at every moment, always going the extra mile. Glasses at the bar (not plastic cups), 5 course dinners in the evenings and excellent... More

Stayed at the SPBH over Christmas. I just don't know what standards others have, but I travel a good bit, and really loved this place. (It is quiet, and has the benefit of great service and superb menus, with a non-invasive but always attentive staff.) Christams day had special meals and offerings (Jamaican traditionals) like Ackee and saltfish, mackeral and... More

Please do not go to this hotel. We were booked into a Suite but were placed in a Deluxe Room with mould in the bathroom and the woodwork had been left at it's undercoat stage. We went to reception (they were useless at everything) on several occassions but they refused to move us! It was only when we complained to... More

We were greeted on a first name basis when we arrived and made to feel at home immediately. We wanted a room on the second floor and were upgraded at no extra cost to a luxurious suite. Our veranda overlooking the ocean was 20 feet across. The suite was like having a house on the beach. The service was outstanding-... More
