The staff was amazing! They were very helpful and caring for the students. They made us feel like we all were a happy family. Breakfast was awesome and fulfilling. When my cabby that wasn't hotel authorize car broke down we called on one of the hotel staff to pick us up. They came in a hurry and didn't ask any... More

This is an average hotel located about 10-15 minute walk from the beach. The hotel is on a hill and if you select a high floor you'll have nice view of the bay. The room was well maintained and the service was ok. This is a good hotel if you plan to rent a car and explore the area.

Big bedrooms and comfy bed. No netting in the bedroom, so got eaten by insects. Nice and friendly staff, although service was very hit and miss. We had a young waitress on the first night who was so bad we felt we were in a Monty Pyton sketch. In our room the fridge didn't work (was repaired 2 days later),... More

The service and hospitality was amazing. Came here for a conference and I was thoroughly impressed. Majority of the staff are students in training/practice and they are clearly under expert management.

The Cardiff Hotel & Spa was excellent for the value. The hotel was tastefully decorated, clean, & quiet. The onsite restaurant's food was good. Furthermore, the staff was very courteous and helpful. Also, call the hotel directly for your transportation needs. The staff was able to make arrangements prior to my arrival. The hotel uses Tour Wise transportation company.

Cardiff Hotel is a good location if you need to just get away to some peace and quiet. No long buffet lines; no schedules. Just going at your own pace. The property is clean, quiet; staff is very courteous, friendly & helpful. Everyone was welcoming. A shuttle takes you to a private beach 5 minutes away

I think this hotel is great for rest. This is their focus and the hotel truly accommodates that. The rooms are spacious, modern and clean. The staff is friendly and helpful and the food is good. Additionally, its proximity to other attractions in St.Ann makes it easier to be able to explore other places and interest. I enjoyed my stay

This is such a beautiful little laid back casual hotel. I stayed there summer 2013 for a night in transit and returned for originally two nights extended for a further two nights. Such a welcomed spot after few days in all inclusive. My daugther and mother and I loved it. My fussy daughter really loved it to my surprise. The... More
