Initially we had a reservation at Pure Garden Resort. However, we were transfer to Gardenia because the hotel was overbooked. Upon arrival at Gardenia, the property was very quiet so much so that we saw no one at the front to check us in. Once the lady at the front desk came back from wherever she was she was not... More

I spent one night at this hole in the wall and wanted to leave the minute I walked into the room. U really get what you pay for, I booked the room because of the cheap rate. This place is not suitable for a vacation stay this is for one night stands/hook ups only. I asked for a king bed... More

The Gardenia exceeded every one of my expectations for a my first time at a smaller, non-inclusive resort in the Caribbean. The friendliness of the staff was both welcoming and comforting throughout our stay, and they work hard to keep the place pretty immaculate. A few tips for visitors, especially since we really didn't spend much time in our room:... More

Good spot in Negril though slightly too far south to walk to e.g. Bourbon Beach. My bedspread had a blood stain on it (not huge but just not what you want to find) but was changed immediately when I mentioned it. The door didnt lock very well at all and I would be concerned about how easy it would be... More

Had a blast. Coffee and breakfast by pool every morning. Across street from beach. Walking distance to many good times. Lots of music. Everyone at hotel did exceptional job. Maid service every day. I would go back anytime.

I stayed at Gardinia after the management at Travellers Beach refused to honor my confirmed booking. I had done my research and read all the available reviews, but I've found not to always trust what others say. The room I stayed in was fine, not fancy but clean, had cable, working a.c. etc. Beds were very comfortable. I spoke with... More

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

I booked this hotel to stay from aug 1-6. The place is beautiful and the breakfast is delicious. Since myself & Partner booked and stayed at this resort last minute and its peak season because of jamaica independence we knew it was not going to cheap but i did not expect to pay 160usd per night for a room that...
