We were here for a week before the Christmas. We booked it via Delta Vacation. It's definitely worth the money we paid, considering everything was included, room and all 3 meals, drinks, entertainment, etc. Although it's stated that tips were also included, we still left tips when we ate at the three sit-down restaurants. I tried one day to leave tip in the room for the housekeeping but they didn't take the money. Beach was kept fairly clean and the ocean was very clean. Room condition was so-so - they definitely need updates but they were clean. The 'waterpark' was just a couple of water slides but enough to keep the kids entertained when they were tired of the beach. There were also several hotel pools for you to relax and enjoy.
The hotel entertainment team was doing a great job trying to keep people 'entertained'. Every evening there were different activities for people of all ages. Every employee is polite and ready to serve. Food was better than I expected, including buffet and sit-down reastaurants. Of course after a few days you get tired of the food. The hotel also allowed some local vendors to sell arts and crafts on premise. You can also take the free hotel shuttle to go downtown to do the souvenir shopping. Price is negotiable adn you need to bargain to get a good price. A lot of the souvenir shops in the city are owned by Indians (Asia India) where you may or may not get a good deal. You can find the best deal in the local crafts market where local Jamaicans sell their artwork. One week was long enough for us. At the end of the week we felt ready to leave.
One caveat here:don't pack anything valuable in your suitcases. I found my $150 CoCo Chanel perfume gone the 2nd day I arrive at the hotel. I was not sure if it was lost in the airport or in the hotel. I am guessing it might be the former.
