We were there from Sept. 1-8.
We are Privilege Club members. Check in and the welcoming party for members was amazing. No issues at all. Food was good. The staff at the buffet was awful, as a member we had a special section and several times had to get up and leave our section to sit else where because there was no wait staff there to get us forks, knives, drinks, ect. The staff at the ala carte rest. were amazing no problems at all! Never had to ask for anything because as soon as they saw a cup get low they were there to refill it. Pool is very nice we enjoyed a few days at the private pool for members and a few days at the main pool with activities. Privilege beach leaves more to be desired (see below). All the bars were nice and staff was friendly.
Amazing staff in the Privilege Lounge, Marie, Sabrina, Melissa and ALL of the other ladies and a few guys were awesome.
Major downfall. The beach area was not what we had expected in regards to access to the ocean. With the area provided at this resort, we were unable to swim out in the waves of the ocean which we enjoy doing while on vacation. There are many low spots and sharp rocks that made our time in the ocean less enjoyable than expected. Also, I was unaware that the sand would be so hard and containing gravel/rocks. It is my understanding that Jamaica suffered great damage from hurricane Sandy last year and I would say it is safe to assume the beach was much different before said storm. Hopefully in the future they can rebuild the beach to its original beauty.
