Very few staff were polite but the majority look miserable so you don't feel comfortable. The housekeeping didn't replace our towels on a daily basis. The food was very poor and frequently ran out and was not replenished. Some alcoholic drinks again frequently ran out before the bar closed. Kids ice cream never worked for the whole duration of our... More

My wife and I stayed at this resort last year and had a wonderful time. I'm generally a very picky traveler but I was thrilled with this hotel. Everything was clean, the people were super friendly, and the amenities were great. I would and will definitely go back!

It takes a lot for me to spend my valuable time to raise my concerns broadly. Having stayed at the Jamaica Grande 5 years as it was known then, I can openly state that the standards has certainly dropped. I arrived at the hotel to be dealt with by a rude and ignorant receptionist who never smiled. I asked to... More

Just spent one week at the Jamaica Sunset Grande in Ocho Rios. Overall my week was very entertaining. Shouts out to the entertainment staff, who were always there to keep you entertained. I especially want to say thank you to Kenneil and Nicholas, who were a part of the entertainment staff. Kenneil was a dancing machine who always had a... More

stayed at the Sunset Jamaica Grande for a week with a few of my family members. Given the bad reviews I had read, I was a bit apprehensive about the hotel. After my stay there, I cannot understand why they've been receiving all these negative reviews. Life is short people, take it easy... The hotel is beautiful, the food is... More
