A bit underwhelming i would have to say. When you go to a new place, you will always make comparisons. It's human nature. Previously vacationed in Cancun, Mexico so the bar was already set pretty high.
Having been to Montego Bay, i would like to say that i could tell you a lot about trips and the island............but i cant. We did not go on one trip in the two weeks and found ourselves confined to the resort all this time. Reason - wayyyyyyy too expensive. Trips that were cheaper and longer were shorter and three times the price here. Maybe we we are just getting sad and old but I dont see the value in paying $170 for two for 3 hour booze cruise and you have to pay for your drinks and food at Margeritaville!! I know these are trips and not the resort but its all on site so connected.
The room itself is fine however our room was the one infested with Mosquito's. Try to avoid room 1401 unless you want to try and beat my record of 110 bites ...........which was the total after the room was sprayed and fumigated.
We did get compensated slightly so thanks to Isabell for that. A light that shone brighter than the rest for sure.
Restaurants - All of a good standard but a bit samey. In Mexico we often managed to order something that wasnt on the menu. We got strange looks if we asked for chips sometimes!!
Bars are OK but you are limited to the Piano Bar at night and then its Desires nightclub from 10.30 onwards. All good fun but difficult sometimes to get served in the Piano Bar so waving any amount of dollars wont help.
Bites and poor value trips aside, the entertainment, free thunder and lightning show every day at 1 p.m. and the jerk chicken are all high points.
You might just have to make your own mind up on this one. There are certainly worse places but value for money just wasnt there for us!!
