We wanted a trip that was all-inclusive and really wanted an adults only place that wasn't crazy! After doing a ton of research I found this place and being very nervous made our reservations for an ocean view room with a balcony. I was very excited and couldn't wait to tell my best friend. She was so excited that without... More

A small and tiny little bolt hole with a true Jamaican feel. This was my very first introduction to Jamaican cuisine and I was not disappointed. Rooms are basic but tidy. I felt as though been tiny, the hotel felt nice and intimate, where all the staff knew you and they catered for your every need and not the masses!

This resort is old and has a very old world charm appeal. I recommend this for travelers who plan to get out of the resort and explore Jamaica and do excursions. The resort may have fewer than 10 guests daily, so if you are looking for nice crowds and entertainment, this may not be the place for you. It appears... More

We went with an opened mined and also the price was decent for the location but once arriving there we were only about 20 people on the resort and there was just a small man made beach. It stated on the website that there was 3 beaches but one did not even exist. The rooms were just ok and the... More

For years going to Ochio Rios we would always stop at this little place to pick up or drop off. So we decided to make reservations. When we crossed the gates and walls it was "BEAUTIFUL and CLEAN ". The service is OUTSTANDING. A small and quaint couples and singles. The GM, "Mr. Blackwood" is always around to meet and... More

This has to be the worst rat nest that calls itself an all inclusive hotel . Roaches,foul smelling rooms,nasty pool, no food after 11pm .this is old , ugly and with limited everything . If you want to waste your money here is the place .the manager mr Mohammed is unhospitable .nightmare

The hotel is very quiet, not many guests at all. So if it's a quiet time you're after, then Club Ambiance is for you. The rooms are kept spotless. The food is very nice and home cooked. The selection of drinks was adequate. Free wifi only in reception. With the hotel being so quiet, you feel like you have the... More

My ex husband and I went here for our honeymoon in 2007. We loved it so much we visited again in 2010. The staff is so friendly, they have evening entertainment (but you will see the same shows if you re-visit). The food is amazing! Highly recommend the omelet bar for breakfast! Its all inclusive, and I am pretty sure... More

We had wicker furniture in our room and it had tiny white mites all over it. The food was ok, nothing to do in the evenings, which in other hotels has been great as you get to know all of the guests over drinks, but during our stay there were very few people there and there wasn't much of an...
