See review on August 12th indicating major damage to this resort. If this review was honest, would the resort not require a closure for repairs? Someone needs to take responsibility for this report from British family before the rest of us would rebook this location.

If you allow yourself to believe some of the really negative reviews regarding this hotel you might think that you had booked into hell on earth. Well let me tell you, it proves the point, that some people take great delight in complaining about anything and everything. As far as the Jamaica Grande is concerned, we feel that most of... More

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at the resort the week of April 8th, 2009. Firstly, getting off the plane and going through customs was horrible and hectic. The airport is hot and small and lots and lots of people so be prepared to just be patient. The transfer van was small but okay. The ride was 2 1/2... More

This resort is overall a great place! Great for families and young couples, there is LOADS to do, both organised activities and things to do on your own. It is a big resort that you do not feel to enclosed, but not too big you feel lost. Lots of pools, bars, eateries - all really varied! All 3 A'la Carte... More

We stayed three nights. The rooms are basic and starting to look a little tired - drawers not opening smoothly, safe didn't function (but was soon fixed), water pressure a bit low and temperature not very hot etc. But hey look beyond this as how long do you stay in the room anyway! The pool complex is fantastic with four... More

The Sunset Jamaica Grande had everything you could need in a resort. The location is great. It's right in Ocho Rios so you just walk out the gates to go shopping, gambling or to Margaritaville for drinks. The Jamaican people are so friendly and the hotel staff just couldn't do enough for us. We always had plenty of clean towels,... More

I am definitely an incredibly fussy traveller and I can put my hand on my heart and say that I loved the holiday I have just spent at Sunset Jamaica Grande. I have never been surrounded by such warmth and happiness. Thank you so much to Leon and Dwight and all the other hard working guys on the North Beach... More
