My husband and I our 9 year old son stayed here for 6 nights in the middle of June. We were very impressed from the time we checked in and saw the beautiful lobby, and were welcomed with a drink, from the time we checked out. The activities that they had every single day were so much fun. They literally... More

I have to say that going on our first big trip away together, my boyfriend and I were eagerly excited to visit Jamaica. While we loved the country of Jamaica, we did not love our resort. We expected a lively resort with nightly entertainment and other couples our age. When we arrived on our first night, the resort entertainment was... More

This was a family vacation with our sons who were 5 and 12 yrs old at the time. The hotel was great for this type of vacation. We stayed in an oceanview room in... More

We are an easy to please couple who don't expect much other then clean room, comfortable bed, warm shower, edible food. No disappointments for us. From the airport arrival thru departure the staff was wonderful. The room was clean and well kept; it showed some signs of age. The food at the buffets was good but lacked variety, picky eaters...

I just recently came back from Sunset Jamaica Grande Resort and had a lousy time. The hotel itself is misleading from what's seen in the pictures. Like previous reviews, the rooms do seem dated and motel-ish, with a basic balcony ( I wouldn't even call it that), and the buffet in the dining hall was lousy and lacked variety of... More
