This was our first time in Jamaica, wasn't sure what to expect - but we were pleasantly surprised! The Hotel was beautiful, larger than I thought, but after indulging too much food and drink - I was always happy for the walk. We booked Royal Golden Club and it was worth the upgrade, we were handed our 4 a'la'carte bookings... More

We have just returned home after a fantastic stay at the GBP to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We had upgraded to golden club, which was well worth the extra. We could not fault the 4 a la carte restaurant`s and the food in main buffet and Pisces beach front snack bar was also faultless. we found if you were pleasant... More

Loved the hotel,lovely room,beach,grounds and plenty of food choices.Some of the reception staff could use a course in people skills but nothing too serious.Avoid having a ground floor room as ours was plagued by mosquitos,apparently that is common on ground floor,we got moved,no problem.The maid had some good room spray if you could persuade her to give you any!Downside- hotel...

My sister-in-law and I stayed at the GBPJ the first week of October. After reading the comments of one of the guest from Toronto, I have to say that our stay was fun and very agreable. We did purchased the Golden Club and did not regret it. We met great people mostly Québécois and all was having a great time.... More
