I went with a group we booked 15 rooms. Most of the rooms had small roaches and a few had some pretty big ones.. We called the front desk and they explained.. it's because it's all inclusive and people bring food back to the rooms, understandable of why they have roaches.. but still wasn't happy to have roaches in my room.. did not want to take them home.. The rooms are very clean.. but again we all had roaches some more than others... The mosquitoes are in full effect even with Off and Skin so soft I got bit up quite often.. don't think this had anything to with the resort it's probably just JAMAICA.. but do take something for the bites.. and some benadryl & or hydrocortisone too.. they sale it in the gift shop but it's cheaper in Cali so bring it with you and lots of it.. okay so with that said.. I did enjoy seeing Jamaica.. and the Hotel was nice enough but because of the roaches I probably wouldn't stay there again.. and again I understand why they have them.. but yeah just can't endure that again.. I previously stayed in the Sunset Beach Resorts.. all inclusive as well.. and didn't see any roaches during my stay.
