We had a fantastic anniversary at this resort in 2012 and would not change a thing (except for the haggling in the ocean waters by crafters while swimming). We loved waking up and having breakfast by the sea followed by a nice walk on the beach. The workout room was fantastic as well as the scattered hammocks. I cannot wait... More

I have never feel the need to do a review for the many hotels that I have stay in both in the US, Jamaica and other countries. However, this hotel have made an impression on me and my boyfriend his sister and her husband. Barbara Multon is so pleasant and welcoming at the front desk. You will not be disappointed... More

Stayed here in Feb10 and had a wonderful time. Staff were spectacular, great location. Breakfast super delicious. Very private and great for weddings also. Highly recommend this place. The price is right and you are very close to any activity on the North Coast of Jamaica.

We stopped here during a two day tour over the island, starting in Mobay. It was around 7 in the morning, really quiet out, restaurant (outside) was empty. We had a great breakfast with a few cups of magnificent high mountain coffee. The staff - we were with a party of four, served by two staff - was very friendly... More

I spent 4 days in January and I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised of how immaculate the scenray was. Great picture locations and the flowers and view from my balcony was excellent. I loved the pool because unlike most hotels who give you 3-5 foot deep pool, this pool was 8 feet deep. Also every morning, the breakfast... More

Customer service by the front dest receptionist and restaurant staff excellent. Food excellent and fresh. Not at all like some of the all inclusives I have stayed in. As someone who was born in Jamaica and lived... More

This little hotel is tucked up on a hill in a remote area where, even if you're really looking, it can be hard to find. The view from the restaurant is lovely and the food is excellent. The service was spectacular, and there was a musician playing at a grand piano as we were dining. The room was clean and... More

This is hotel is not to be confused with the all inclusives/ or super all inclusives. This hotel is a nice mid sized hotel located not too close but not too far from everywhere! The menu does not have a very wide selection but the serving sizes are pretty good. The staff is friendly bit not too friendly... The rooms... More
