Great beachside location. Water sports facilities like hoby cats are good. A la carte restaurants are all decent, the Italian was our favourite. Singing barman is a spectacle worth seeing. Really recommend a trip to ride horses and to tajle them swimming at Chukka. Beach vendors are friendly and no bother, just say hi.

First off any vacation to Caribbean in the winter is a plus! I recommend direct flights(we flew in to MontegoBay) and get there by noon since the bus ride to Negril is 2+ hours(beat the traffic). At check in we were served drinks..HELLO!!!! We booked a 5 hr catamaran cruise (associated with Resort) fun, snorkeling, free drinks(tip bartender ofc) and... More

The grounds are beautiful. The help is wonderful. The entire resort is very clean. The food is good and plentiful. The drinks are yummy. The bedding needs updating, and the tv's need replacing. There is a smell of dampness in many rooms. You notice it mostly when you first enter a room. The good points totally out weigh the not... More

Our room was block 1 and ground floor which was lovely and spacious. Did not use aircon as prefer a fan, though it took a while to get hang of light... More

Worst Resort I have stayed at in over 20 years. The property was supposed to be refurbished in Aug/14 but was put off for a year. There is visible mould everywhere. Other glaring deficiencies are NO Coffee makers in room, NO Room Service, I was in the closest building and had to walk approx. 800 paces round trip to get... More

I stayed at this hotel from the 26th of November to the 11th December and it was AMAZING!!!!! Upon arrival I was greeted by lovely friendly smiley people, who offered me a cocktail, and asked if we had a nice journey. We then even got a free upgrade to a sea view due to the renovations not taking place in... More

During my stay, I had the inclusive package..Pros: Great staff, many bars located throughout. Nightly entertainment was provided. For different scenery, Jimmy Buffett Margaretville is about 7-10min away by cab. Cons: Only 1 Towel check area for the entire beach resort, Buffet food plentiful but just ok. Could not get reservation for 'fine dining restaurants' as they were all booked.... More

First off, it's Jamaica. Things go a little slow--the people and the service. That said, the check in process was about the most efficient part of the stay, until I entered the room, which was dated and in major need of renovation. Next, the smell of the room was atrotious and on top of that the TV was a 1970's... More
