A good hotel. very clean with a good kitchen. It is outside the resorts, so you can explore Jamaica on your own. Seafront rooms are spacious. The balcony is small, but the common balcony on each floor is much larger. Restaurants in the open air (covered) with good ventilation. That is much better than air conditioned and cold. Service is very good. The beach is in front of the hotel, as is the ATM. The beach (Doctors cove) is guarded and costs about 5 US$ per day. (you get a mark on your arm when you get out , e.g. for lunch. Hotel has very good internet in a separate room with about 5 computers.The swimming pool is moderately small but very clean. The beach is much better though, with comfortable chairs for 5 US$ a day. Not very busy, except when a cruise ship is in.
Good restaurants are not so plentiful in Montega Bay, except for the resorts. A good one is the Pelican, about 5 minutes walking away on the same road.
Some small disadvantages: The lights in the room are very dark, so reading is difficult in the evening. Even on the desk in the room there is no light. Also a small refrigirator would be helpful, the more because the supermarket is adjacent to the hotel. You can use the facilities of the hotel for free, but you get a plastic armband to recognize you. That is a nuisance, since everybody on the street can see in which hotel you are, including sellers of services. It feels unpleasant also.
The price of the rooms (about 150 Euro per night) is stiff. The location is excellent for those who stick to the beach. The distance to Montego Bay center is about a 15 minutes walk.
