I have been going to Jamaica for many years and have seen some places improve and others take a catastrophic plunge downward. Unfortunately this one is not good, not good at all. Its dirty, the room on the first night was so bad the bugs and things that kept appearing were extremely sleep preventing. I changed into a room that resembled a prison cell at best. No tubs, just concrete bunker like showers, very primitive in every aspect even down to having mo electricity most afternoons. Having enquired about this electricity situation a member of staff told me it was the city and they did it to preserve power, the real story was they switched it off themselves to save money as they are low on funds. The food is actually not bad, but how bad can chicken rice and peas be ????
I travelled alone and can deal with a little of this and that but here the this and that got simply to much to bare. A little attitude is normal in Jamaica but here the people are just rude, unhelpful and seemingly bothered by genuine requests for help.
I hope they pull it together, they need to spend some money, change the team, and maybe market the place from scratch and see were it goes but i wont be staying there again until they do something.
