I would not rate this facility Excellent but for goodness sake it is very good compared to a similar facility in the same neighbourhood. The comparison were based on quality/friendliness of staff, cost, environment and value for money. I stayed at the facility for four nights and another friend stayed for seven nights without regrets. Although not everything is fantastic... More

As a native Jamaican frequently returns to spend time with my husband and family, I am disappointed at this sad mistake of a "resort". I have stayed at 4-5 star resorts and low end resorts so I know the range I am dealing with. The room we stayed in was sparse at best. It looks like they took some old... More

Most Jamaican hotels are not that great, but this one takes the cake! Very unpleasant and unprofessional staff. If you run into any issues the'll likely screw you over. The manager is very hard to deal with as well. On top of the price indicated in booking system they charge extra 20% taxes and 5% more if you pay credit... More

In Jamaica, you definitely get what you pay for, and that is not completely a bad thing. Lately when I visit Negril, I am on a budget and have been searching for hotels for under $50 a night. Thus far I've stayed at Pure Gardens, Sun Beach, Paul's Apartments and now Gardenia Resort. I want to review each one on... More

The staff is just not helpful and incompetent except the maids which are always smiling and provide a good service. The resort itself is not very fresh and old but very intimate, in the jungle side and it is very relaxing, just in the front of Negril Beach.

My second stay at Gardenia resort was the best yet. Richard and his staff take great pride in making sure your stay is acceptable for you. The rooms located in the rear of property are the best choice well suited for the most relaxing and quiet. Some rooms are condos and others are standard rooms that are excellent for my... More

I spent the last 3 nights in Jamaica here after being on the road for 5 days. I was really pleased with this site and would definitely go back. The staff was very responsive and sweet. Plenty of clean towels but we asked them not to change the bedding every day to save water etc. We enjoyed the breakfast in... More

Richard-Manager, Manager at The Gardenia Resort, responded to this review

Glad that you enjoy yourself at Gardenia and both Manager and staff was grateful that you took the time to spend your vacation with us and hope to see you again. All that was mention that was needed to improve the room is being consider and maybe in place by the time you come back at Gardenia. Thanks, Richard Miller. More
