“Was just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Hotel was clean and relatively safe, the staff could have been friendlier and the food at the restaurant was sub pare. The price was good, and that's a plus. The location is great but didn't like the amount of vendors that seem to lounge about on the hotels beach chairs selling things.

Clean and polynesian style rooms. Sometimes a loss of shower water pressure, but no big deal. Short walk to beach, pool and bar area.

Great location, because next door is a cool pool hall on one side, and "Annies Thrill Corner" on the other side.

Hotel employees very gracious.

The room was basic and comfortable. The restaurant food was good and average priced for the area and the service staff there were very nice. Our bartenders were personable and for island standards they did things at a faster pace than most. This is not a luxury hotel so if you want golden faucets and down comforters, this is not the place. But if you want a nice beachfront hotel for an affordable rate, I recommend this hotel.

Unfortunately this seems to have gone down hill since we stayed there three years ago when we had treated ourselves to a night of luxury. This time round however it was a real let down was overpriced and our room was very moldy. We stayed here over Valentines and felt let down as it is no way of a standard equivalent to its star rating.

Room Tip: Don't bother

The hotel was average by Negril standards, pretty much like most of the others of this size.We had room 303. It was cleaned daily, and we always had fresh towels, but the water wasnt hot unless you waited till about 10 at night for your shower. The sink never did anything but dribble water out. The room needed a few things. We had a closet but no hangers, and there was no dresser at all in the room, only a desk that the TV sat on, so there was nowhere to put things. No ceiling fan, but the air worked fine after maintenence worked on it. The bed lacked any blankets or comforter. only white sheets. We were provided with blankets after asking for them.
The room really needed some color!. Everything was white!. No decor in the room at all.
The staff, however, was wonderful. Mr Smith, take care of them! Everyone from the bartenders, to the waitresses, the cleaning service, everyone did everything they could to accomodate us in every way.

I think tripadvisor should take away its 3.5 stars, this hotel is in no standard qualifying for 3.5 stars category, in my opinion, it's 2.5 stars the most! The professional photos are deceiving, except outside of rooms. I am not high maintenance traveler, i just want the room to be clean, if they can't keep the bathroom and towels clean, then it's a problem to me! I don't even know where to start, we were given a first floor garden room 103, after i went into the bathroom and saw wooden shower floor were stained and disgusted, i immediately went back and requested for a different room, i was initially told that it's all booked but eventually able to get a different room on the second floor. unfortunately, it was no better than the first one, I don't mind there's no tub, but a shower w white paint and no marble/tiles is simply inadequate in long run, of course there's stains on the shower floor w that white paint, and of course paint bubbles and flaky paints formed, sink was not flowing freely, i had to stop faucet at least 3-4 times to just wash my face, towels are like they're from a motel that hasn't been bleach in ages, 3.5 stars hotels should never have this issues. in addition, we had to wait about an hour for beach towel at 11am, i could understand if i asked for it early morning and it was still not ready! shower head pressure was minimal, my overall bathroom experience is just awful! moving to the room, the TV remote control was not working, the room does not have any sound proof at all, it simply uses wooden door/window and blind combined so there's no actual window glass/door sealing the space, we had some loud Russians neighbors who had too many drinks and kept us up all night long. Couple of positive things included that it's beachfront property, its restaurant is right by the beach w the pool right under the table. the water comes pretty high so in high tides we can't really sit on the beach chair by the sand. I had to ask a staff to move a beach chair to the sand when the tide is low, but her response is:"can u ask one of the guys?" at the same time when she was busy texting! The restaurant features breakfast, lunch and dinner, typical american menu w decent prices, but we opt for local foods instead, the one right across from the hotel main entrance. Overall, the room is a night mare but the beachfront property uplifts my experience.
