I completely forgot to review this awful place. My parents live in Jamaica and we visited over the Easter holidays about 7 yrs ago. I knew this place wasn't going to be top notch but everywhere was booked. We drove up and I realized the hotel was across the road from a fishing beach. There is a difference in jamaica the fishing beach doesn't necessarily have sand and this one didn't. Anyway we still drove up to the hotel. Walking in I remember we had to search to find anyone. The hotel was deserted and so it should have been. We got shown our rooms at which point my parents, husband and myself turned and left. There was no way I was going to stay in that awful room. We were shown several equally horrible options. The beds had sheets on them no blankets (which really are not necessary in Ja) and no bed spreads. The rooms were BASIC and old not updated in many years it looked. I felt bad for the employee. We left not knowing if there was anywhere else to stay but we didn't care. I would rather have gone back to my parents home than stayed there. From the looks of photos this place has not changed at all. Avoid it. There are so many other options. Jamaica is a gorgeous country. This hotel should be embarrassed about its rooms. Though it doesn't have a beach it has a view. This place has wonderful potential if the owners really cared about it.
