We stayed on the 5th floor from 11/6-11/13., rooms were very clean. The beds are hard, but not uncomfortable. We both slept really well. Hot water no problem. The staff was very friendly. Food, typical all inclusive food. If you can't get reservations for the restaurants, don't get upset, you aren't missing anything. The steakhouse only offers beef tenderloin, no other type of steak. The service was also lacking there but that is because it was one guy to about 10-12 tables. The gourmet restaurant was ok. The Asian restaurant was ok, but we were both in the mood for some sushi. Otherwise, we stuck to the buffet. The bartenders were very generous with the alcohol at the bars. We stuck to the beach over near the Mamee Restaurant. Otherwise, it is a bit loud when the entertainment is out and about trying to get people to participate in activities. The beach was absolutely wonderful. Beautiful, no lack of beach chairs or palm trees and the water was nice and warm. There was really not a problem with vendors in the water trying to sell their trinkets or getting you to rent the jetskis. If you ignore them, they don't bother you. It was a haul to get there from the airport (approximately 1 1/2 hours) and on the way there, the driver made a 'pit stop' to let people get a beer and smoke or use the restroom. We just stayed on the bus. We would definitely recommend this hotel to someone heading to Jamaica. We did not participate in the excursions outside the hotel, but don't think it is far from Dunns River Falls.
One of the most relaxing vacations we have ever had!
