“Jamaica is a beautiful country but skip Hedonism”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Let me start out by saying I love the country and the people. Hedonism was not a place I could recommend. We chose this hotel because we were looking for a fun spot to party and have a good time. We aren't offended by nudity, we just choose not to.

The room: In a word: Dated. The bathroom was small and needed a LOT of repairs. The tiles were cracked, grout was dirty, and it looked like a 70's time capsule. The shower head came off while we were there and after it was "fixed" it still looked like it was about to fall.

The food/drinks: We are not picky eaters but the food was very repetitive day after day. We mostly ate omelets in the morning and cheeseburgers and fries in the afternoon/evenings. Don't expect much. There are not enough places to get drinks so the wait times are very long.

Location/beach: this was not a great section beach. We walked down the beach and there were much nicer stretches of beach without the twigs and leaves of the beach at Hedonism. On the street side there isn't anything within walking distance.

Room Tip: If you don't heed the warnings, at least bring shower shoes and slippers.

We couldn't have asked for a better destination wedding & honeymoon! We wanted a very low key, private and intimate wedding and everyone on the staff at Hedo helped to make ours perfect! Lorna, our wedding coordinator, was a true joy to work with. Evelyn from the SPA is just amazing. Everyone made sure every detail from the flowers, the location on the beach and the reception were exactly as we asked. It really couldn't have been any easier!

This was our third trip to Hedo and it was exciting to see the new owners have already started with improvements. We are really looking forward to seeing the updates upon our next visit this Fall!

Room Tip: If that's important for your vacation, be sure to request a room with an ocean view. Not all th...

I can't believe all the whiners that post about H2. All hear this! New management! I am a newbie, was there in early April after management turnover. Food was excellent, entertainment great! The permanent band is really tight, terrific lead singer, sounds like she sang with the Supremes when they were young. Sushi, good liquor, the executive director is always around making sure things are clicking. If you don't like naked people fooling around and having fun stay on the prude side. No one is making anyone do, see or participate in anything. Yes, many guests are over 40, have some poundage, but have you walked through an airport lately? And, there were some 9.9s there that I will never forget. I was interested in the full monte and I got a great first taste. I will be going back in June with my wife. She just won't believe the stories I have told her. Can you really be serious about a slightly older facade with the gorgeous beach, weather, crazy fun people running around naked? If that is your top priority plan bingo at Seashore Bay @ 400 a night. But don't have a stroke if the Wi-Fi goes out.

From our experience with Breezes Negril and then walked across street to Hedo -prude side, both run by Breezes. They should get reviewers into these hotels once a yr. They are not 5 star resorts - Period. Ridiculous that we paid what we did. We had been told that this side was very quiet and restful.

Hotels are the only business that if the quality is not as advertised you cannot get a refund.

Front Service. Incredibly poor...we stood with at least 6 other couple awaiting to be served for at least an hour. Then again we had to take our luggage to room as bus boy was awol.

upon entrance to room....wow what decade are we in? The tackiest room I have ever seen. And no I don't mean the mirrors on the ceiling..the decor was so outdated it was not even quirky or quaint - just poor quality.

Hard bed and pillows. Bed not right size for space it occupied.
Sower, cold...ok maybe tepid. all nozzles not working.

First day on beach - nice and quiet and there was shade areas for those who wanted it. Great sloping beach, great for swimming
The hotel itself -outside spaces are attractive.

Dinner-same ol buffet style - for a vegetarian very limited. Salad and fruit.

Music this night went on till 5 am at ridiculous level. We were told there was a group in hotel and it would not be like this following evening. We changed rooms in hopes of a bit farther away would be helpful. Well then of course the beach music started at levels to scare local wild life, this had not been the case the day before.

The bathroom was cleaned but not the toilet, from the time we arrived to leaving there was the same stains. There is no note pads or pens for use, no "book" showing features of hotel or who to call for what as is norm with most hotels.

Bathroom faucet was running when we got in, had to turn it off from main tap below, this was not fixed. The shower area is dirty, black in grout area.

Vents let in bugs, easy fix put a screen on them.

I am incredibly unhappy with our Breezes Hotel experience. Feel quite ripped off actually. These are maybe 3 star resorts at best and should be priced as such.

Room Tip: Just go elsewhere unless you are going for a specific event at the resort.

This is our 9th trip and the improvements the new owners are doing are wonderful. We've seen many improvements already and are excited for the future.We love the atmosphere, the people we meet,the new friends we meet, & the group we take every year, and the wonderful people of Jamaica that work at the resort.

Room Tip: Garden view au naturel rooms are a great place.

Quality at this resort has really slipped the last few years. Food has gotten much worse, entertainment is questionable. Yes, it is very relaxing when at the beach, but the pool/hot tub area gets pretty crazy. Music at the pool was VERY loud - not very relaxing. We have been going to Hedo for 20 years and don't think we will be back - at least not until they upgrade and go back to top notch service.
The only really outstanding part of the stay was, as usual, the diving. The dive shack staff is OUTSTANDING!!! They are the most caring, professional staff of the entire resort. If we DO return, it will be due to the efforts of the dive staff.

Superclubs has basically run this property down to the ground. For the 5 star prices a person pay per room they should at least expect a decent room with amenities that work. On this recent visit, the room phone was out of order and it was an inconvenience because friends we vacationed with were unable to reach us without a block long walk. Despite notifying the Housekeeper of the problem within an hour of arriving nothing was done.

The shower water temperature is hit or miss. Either burning hot or ice cold. In this day of compact Instant hot water heaters it is unacceptable to be a roll of the dice when you want to take a shower. On only one day was the temperature just right.

The resort is now under New Ownership as of about 6 weeks ago and with what we heard would be an immediate 10 Million infusion into upgrading the resort hasn't happened! With over 270 rooms it's debatable whether this infusion will do more than add a coat of paint and some minor upgrades to a resort that needs a 40 million dollar upgrade. One of the bar staff said that Management has doubled the stock of liquor on hand but despite this effort they ran out of a few brands that were never replaced much like past visits. Not a good sign at an all-inclusive resort!

Most of the staff that the guests had built up relationships with over the past 10-20 years have been released so that is just another reason to not bother coming back. Dollar for Dollar, a Desire resort is a much better experience as they charge the same 5 star prices, but you actually see and experience a clean well managed resort that is worthy of it's star rating and operates as a couples resort only without the ogling (wally's) single guys which on this trip was especially annoying for the ladies in the hot tub.

The staff do try their best to be attentive to the guests needs. Mold in the bathrooms is unacceptable at any resort. We also experienced 3 resort-wide power outages that has never happened in numerous past visits.
