This was my second visit to Jamaica and the Sunset Jamaica Grande Resort didn't spark any excitement other than its location. Walking distance into Ocho Rios market area which was very convenient. Besides the buffet, the resort had several specialty restaurants (italian, asian and local cuisine), unsure whether it was the time of year but the specialty restaurants only had one open per night and only with reservations. Food was okay. Nothing to rave about.
The same can be said about the buffet; nothing to rave about but you didn't starve. Quality of food was upgraded when the resort had several conferences going on for a couple of days. A downsize to the increased guests (conferences), we lacked in room towels like face clothes.
Would I stay here again? Sure, if my friends were going back there. I didn't find that the resort did anything fantastic. As the title states - it's mediocre.
The buffet you were on your own. Self-serve right down to coffee and beverages. Wait staff was only there to clear tables.
The ocean smelled; with it being a man made inlet, the water doesn't circulate and is very stale.
