“Another side of Montego Bay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

Such a peaceful quit place to relax and enjoy some of the quietness that Montego Bay has to offer. Its away from the hustle of the town and still located close enough to restaurants and shopping areas.There is a nice swimming pool and its a great place to host small to medium size functions. The staff is very courteous and the rates are very reasonable.

If you are looking to stay slightly away from the true Montego Bay downtown area this is a great location being just a quick walk up the hill. You are also just over a miles walk from the touristy area of Montego bay.

We really enjoyed the remote and quiet feel we got staying here and the grounds were lovely. However it was slightly more remote feeling due to the fact that staff was hard to find, neither the bar or grill were open and the common area seemed to be used as storage.

Our room was clean without an frills. Bring your own shampoo and don't be surprised if your towels have holes in them.

We are pleased that you appreciated the relaxing peace and quiet.Regret unavailability of staff which is unusual as this is a small property and there is always someone at the front desk.The bar and grill are open in the afternoon and nights.However you will receive service by requesting attention at the front desk.Shortage of space sometimes compels us to have items in the lobby before and after a wedding reception or other function.Apologies for the towels which is unexpected as we are not short of presentable ones.Unlike more upscale properties we are unable to provide certain amenities like shampoo as our moderate rates do not allow it.Thank you for your assesment.We hope you will again use our facilities and we will be grateful if you inform us of any dissatisfactions before you leave.

This place is a dump. After seeing what they had to offer online I decided to book 8 days of hell for me and my husband. I asked for 1 bed, king or queen, we got 2 beds pushed together. The shower gave us a stream or water or maybe saying a stream in too much. The shower Head Had calcium all over it so no flowing water. The place was full of ants and mosquitoes. After 8 days I can't tell you any of the staffs names because they were all rude. The pool was filthy and the living area was used as a storage locker for all their wedding stuff, so no sitting to watch Tv. The wifi was slow and they kept it unplugged until u asked why was it not connecting. And it does not work in the rooms. The check in staff was rude to the guest, not the friendly Jamaica welcome you expect and this is from first hand. They give you ice in a dirty thermos and no water. They don't explain their services and their pictures must be old. It's on a not so safe part of Montego Bay so every night I was thinking someone was gonna kick the door in and rob us. When asked if we could get money back for unused nights so we could go somewhere more suitable we were told no. If you're used to comfort and friendly staff, this is not where you want to be !

Just a short stroll from the main town still secluded enough for peace and quite. They cater to wonderful weddings, great food, big pool and bar. The staff is pleasantly accommodating and knows you by your first name. Rooms have fans as well as AC, fridge if you request, TV, full bathroom and huge storage for clothes and personal items. Oh yeah and a balcony. Very safe area to be in. It's friendly to couples and families alike. Tell them the Yetman family sent ya!

I loved my stay at this hotel. It's really close to the centre of MoBay and beaches (just down the hill), and not far to the airport...but by staying here you get to avoid the tourist resort madness - and the touts on every corner. The rooms are comfy and nice, the ones on the top level have views, and the prices are reasonable and affordable. The staff are super friendly and helpful.
I will definitely stay here again when I'm next on MoBay.
