The workers at this resort made the experience great. Shamala was always making us incredible food at the grill and pizza place, Oretta was constantly busy serving at one place or another and made sure that we never needed anything, JeVaughn and Basil on the beach made every effort to make sure our drinks were never empty, Cornell, Garnet and...

We arrived on Friday, April 17th and left Friday, April 24th. Our first room on Friday we asked to be moved due to overlooking the other resort and small view of the ocean with birds from other resort that were extremely loud. The toilet continued to run and the maintenance guy claimed to have fixed it but my husband had... More

We went on vacation from April 11 to April 18 and the week was perfect. The staff were polite and helpful. The food was good and a variety of choices. They had daily activities and tried to keep it fun for all. I liked that the hotel was smaller in size making it more intimate and it was nice to... More

What a great place to visit. We spent the day there for an adult only experience which included full access to the resort, pool side bars, multiple pools with pristine water and spotless surroundings, wonderful, supportive, professional staff and a private beach area for us to enjoy the ocean should we decide it was time to get out of the...

Our stay at this resort was incredible. We booked everything through Funjet Vacations and it was so easy to do. We got free round-trip airport transfers to and from the resort. I was a little nervous at first, not going to lie, because the price for this resort was significantly less than Sandals. All my worries disappeared as soon as... More

We stayed here as part of our anniversary trip. The complex is huge with rooms on different wings. Really good room size and mini bar. Food was good and a great selection of branded alcohol and cocktails included in the AI when you usually get cheap alternatives. Lovely pools and swim up bar with attentive staff. Nice beach although busy... More

If you have never been to another resort, this would okay and you would probably be happy. However this is my 5th trip to Jamaica and this was by far the most disappointing. My husband and I were on our honeymoon and travelled with two other couples who were celebrating their 25th wedding anniversaries. This was suppose to be an... More
