I spent 4 days in January and I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised of how immaculate the scenray was. Great picture locations and the flowers and view from my balcony was excellent. I loved the pool because unlike most hotels who give you 3-5 foot deep pool, this pool was 8 feet deep. Also every morning, the breakfast was different and they had enough things on the lunch and dinner menu to satisfy even the hungriest of guests. The rooms and bathrooms were well decorated and the refrigerator is a great touch. The bathroom amenties are also great and their were plenty of towels to go around. I felt like a king because during my stay, I could count the amount of guest on the property on one hand. There were a few growing pains of course since they are upgrading the property. The telephone did not work, and I had to switch rooms because my safe key was taken by the previous guest. The head Chef/General manager was very accomodating and went out of her way to make my stay extra special. Nice young lady. The restaurant was closed and she called the Chef who returned to the property to prepare us dinner. The Cardiff is now my favorite Hotel in Ocho Rios/Runaway Bay and because of the friendly staff and their management team, this will be the only place I stay when I visit which is a lot since I travel every few weeks.
