After reading several reviews on this hotel, and others in Jamaica we kinda knew what to expect from our holiday. We picked a hotel that was in line with our budget with decent reviews and a good location. We knew that the Jamaicans are well known for being laid back so nothing really came as a surprise to us. We experienced a few problems along our way but nothing that could ruin our holiday in this amazing part of the world.
Our safe in the room was broken on arrival and we were told we could borrow the one in the room next over the corridor and that they would fix ours the next day, 3 days later it still hadn't been fixed. We ended up moving rooms which wasn't ideal but actually ended up in a better room closer to the beach. We then had problems with our patio door, for some reason we couldn't lock it. I reported this to reception and a chap fixed it the next day only for it to break again. This happened 3 or 4 times and in the end we just gave up and forgot about it. Some days we had clean towels, other days we had to call reception as we had not been left enough towels and on one occasion none at all. The lady on reception was so laid back she was almost horizontal, but again we were expecting this after reading previous reviews, and most problems were dealt with in the end.
Our room was nice and big and spacious and the bed was massive, probably the biggest I have ever slept in! and very comfortable. Our room was cleaned well everyday.
The staff at the hotel were mostly friendly and very helpful. My favorite was Keisha who served us breakfast most mornings. She was always smiling and welcoming and told me I sounded like Elvis Presley because I kept saying "thank you very much". The young chap serving in the restaurant was also very nice and pleasant and helpful.
The breakfast itself wasn't much to write home about but was suffice most mornings, but again after reading previous reviews we knew this wasn't going to be 5 star dining. On the mornings I felt a little hungrier I just ordered extra from the menu which was reasonably priced.
The location of the hotel is where this hotel excels. It is set right in the centre of the 7 mile beach in Negril and really is the perfect spot. On the majority of occasions there were plenty of sunbeds unless we didn't get to the beach until the afternoon then it was a struggle. We visited in January and the sea was lovely and warm and clear with very little rain at all over our 2 week stay.
There are lots of places along the beach to go out for meals in the evening within a short walking distance or you can take a taxi into town or to the cliffs which is only a 10 minute drive.
Overall our stay at rooms was enjoyable and we would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to visit Negril on a budget, as long as you don't expect 5 star service or dining.
