One week of fun fun in Negril. Very basic resort, you can stay in one and eat in any of the three. Rooms very very basic. Do not look for any mod cons. Restaurant relatively good, not a very wide variety but good. Very basic bar. Friendly staff always. Poor IT service only available in the restaurant, very frustrating. Great... More

Check in was quick although we waited aprox 45mins because of a leg injury we requested a room downstairs and none was available. They got us one while we waited at the bar. The staff were simply amazing, my husband was... More

Before I say what was wrong with this place, I'd first like to give credit where credit is due. Shannia, Donovan and Raldo, who were wait staff, were quite good and the food was good. That said, when it comes to the food, you have narrow windows of time to eat. Dinner is only 7-9 and lunch is 12:30-2. If... More

My wife and I spent 5 nights here from Nov 27 to Dec 2 and had a very nice time. We booked on Expedia and were given a ocean view room. The staff were very nice and the beach and room were good too! The food and drinks were not too bad for a cheap all inclusive. So if you... More

3rd day in a row without towels to the beach. Guess they want us to buy one from the tourist shoppe on their property. Earplugs worn out due to pumping techno party next door and it takes forever to try to flush the toilets. But coffee is good and the sunset is breathtaking. Buffe-food is over expectation and bar staff... More

First time in Negril, and certainly the last, we love Jamaica and the people, how ever ,you get pestered 24.7 on the beach, by the so called day trip reps, massage girls, drug dealers, we got ripped of by buying day trips that turned out to be just 2 hrs. long and paid the privilege for this in the tune...

Yup, another year gone, and still the same hotel choice. we are very happy with our vacation choice, and have already booked again for next year. the hotel continues to offer great value for money, aimed at the middle price bracket. if you want top-notch rooms, you will have to pay for them. approximately double by my reckoning. the food...

Stayed the week of Feb 17, 2014. Staff were fantastic. Room was old and a little run down but very clean and adequate for our stay....lots of hot water at night, not so much in the morning due to their solar heating system. Food was great for breakfast, pretty good for lunch and so so for dinner. We took advantage... More
