This hotel was amazing! The whole experience was amazing! I've stayed at a RIU in Playa Del Carmen Mexico... and I thought it was the best until I stayed at the El Dorado Royale Spa Resort in Riviera Maya Mexico... but the Iberostar Grand in Montego Bay was one of a kind. It will be hard to try out another new place. I am not a super-seasoned traveler, but I met several during my stay. They said they have been everywhere and NEVER received service even close to this caliber. l would have to agree! The staff at this hotel were 2nd to none. Morris at the swim-up bar was the best bartender I have ever encountered. Kennesha (the waitress on the beach) greeted my wife and I every day by first name after we introduced ourselves only once on the first day.(and you got drinks on the beds out on the beach every 10-15 minutes..not once an hr like some places) Victoria greeted my wife by name everyday at the omelet station and asked if she would like the usual! The beach was a little pebbley where you enter the water, but then it is fine once you get in (i hear the beach in Negril is better..but this one was still beautiful... and not to mention you were in the hotel 10-15 mins after leaving the airport!) The food was really good... but the best was the authentic Jamaican Jerk food that was cooked out on the beach on Thursday. I was actually TIRED of eating lobster! You get as many lobster tails as you want...even on the lunch buffet! The room service was good. My wife ordered sushi, and I ordered KOBE BEEF BURGERS!(multiple times)... You can order a bag of doritos, a plate of french fries, Fanta soda, beer, DVDs..whatever.. anytime! Great romantic rooms. As soon as we got there we were upgraded to an Oceanfront Room. Total Privacy. Loveseat swing and daybed on your balcony. Beautiful view. Separate his and hers sinks, separate shower and jacuzzi tub. Tell your butler (yes you have a 24-hr butler) to draw your wife a bath at midnight.. then go eat dinner, catch a show (very talented cast), drink (all top shelf liquor- Crown Royal, Beefeater, Henessey, Grey Goose, etc..not the well liquor like you get everywhere else).. and when you open your door to go to bed.. you will have a candlelit path lined with rose petals to a bubble bath. -- this is all inclusive! .. be nice and tip good and frequent- they earn every penny! Great security at your resort- I saw security walking the beach at 3am. There were a couple of locals on canoes selling things in the water, but I was never approached like you get at other resorts. The only thing I would change is to add a little more authentic Jamaican entertainment and food... maybe an extra cookout day on the beach, or some beach entertainment with local bands in the evening would add to the experience. But I have no complaints. It was much better than Mexico. The staff is twice as friendly, and they speak English show you can shoot the breeze with them. Awesome, awesome, awesome place!
