Before booking our holiday, I spent an entire week-end going over trip advisor reviews. We settled on SJG only after my husband's cousin had just returned from there 2 weeks ago. Their enthusiam coupled with the reviews settled it for us. In 3 words I LOVED IT. The rooms were fine, the food was fine, the weather absolutely cooperated (it... More

We needed a 2 week break to unwind and that's what we did. The main lobby bar was brilliant. Steve, Horace and Randle were fantastic and made our holiday go with a swing. Dunns River Falls and Dolphin Cove were well worth the money, check out the trips from the hotel rather than the travel agents it works out cheaper.... More

We just got back from our vacation,wanted to let you know the food was not very good. It was very hard to get into the speciality restaurants, we flew in on sunday and could not get a reservation until 9pm on wednesday. At the buffet the fruit was not ripe,the meat and fish were awful, even the pancakes were bad.... More

Family of four, myself, husband, 6 & 4 yr old boys just returned from week at SJG. I must admit before leaving I read so many reviews that I got scared and desperately tried to book a few nights at the Beaches hotels but they were completely sold out. Things do happen for a reason. This hotel is fine, or... More

My sister and I went to the SJG for a quick girls trip March 15-19. I had been to Jamaica and several all-inclusives before and this was her first time. We knew going into the vacation that SJG would not be a 4-5 star hotel so we were not that terribly upset by some of the resort's shortcoming but a... More

My family (48 of us) and myself travelled to Jamaica during the last two weeks of February for my brother's wedding. The wedding itself was amazing. He chose the garden to have his wedding and everything was gorgeous. We did not have a photographer for the wedding so everyone brought their own cameras. However, the one complaint was that the...

Returned from SJG March 19. Stayed 1 week - 2 adults and a 14 year old. Accommodations were comfortable - 2 double beds and a bathroom. We were in a standard room, no upgrades - had a view of the bay, mountains and Ocho Rios. Quite lovely. Buffet was fine; a la cartes were fabulous. Jamalicious cafe served both typical... More

Amazing hotel in the heart of Ocho Rios. Ideal for a vacation filled with partying and activities. There is something going on at every moment of every day... activities pool-side, sand sculpting competitions, beer drinking contests, activities for kids, crab races, pirate parties, beach-side barbecues, cooking lessons, sailing lessons, trampolines, water-slides, karaoke in the lobby with the outstanding "Maurice", and...

Air Canada vacations states this property as a 4 star. It is more around a 3 star. The rooms are very old and dated. We tried many times to get on the ala carte reservation list.. Near the end of the week we just showed up at the front and tipped the guy and got in every time with no... More
